I know, I know… This blog has been so abandoned for the longest time. But, hey, at least I try to keep my holiday trimmings, err… uh, trimmed. hehe
My family and I are off to my mountain home in a few hours for the holidays. And, even if I’ve been a very bad blog-friend the past months, I just could not bear going without leaving a note for all ye who come to visit. So:
To all my blog friends, thank you for the friendship. This year I found a few friendships that I know are for keeps. *aaawww* You are treasured and loved. 🙂
I am actually looking forward to spending time with my family and some very special friends in Baguio. I look forward to lighting up our backyard with a huge bonfire, and drinking some giddying tonic made by my sister Emac or one of my BILs… To cold late nights warmed by stories and laughter shared with my sisters… To cool days spent curling up and sleeping, or sipping coffee (and maybe whiffing a smoke or two, if dad is away! hehe) at the kitchen steps. (I’ve quit smoking years ago. But when I’m in Baguio, the temptation is just too hard to resist.)
I’m sure my kids look forward to riding horses and running in parks and playing with no end.
No matter what people say, that Baguio is now ugly and crowded and traffic and crass, it is still my home. And home is where the heart is.
Baguio, my Baguio, here we come!
(Now, off I must go, for I have barely two hours to pack… We leave at 7!)
