Paper cranes for 2013

Vera’s paper cranes – she recently discovered the joy of origami.

Hi there, everyone! Happy New Year!

The holiday rush, as usual, got the best of me so Christmas came and went without any updates on the blog. The Christmas holidays have been a time of catching up with family and old friends. As usual, the family spent Christmas in Baguio. It’s that time of the year that my kids (sige na nga, ako rin) eagerly look forward to. This year, I especially looked forward to going home to Baguio because of scheduled reunions with dear old friends from high school.

I continued going to the gym. I lost six pounds, and gained back one during the Christmas break, but that’s okay. I’m not bopping myself on the head for that. I’m back at the gym, and ran my first 5k for the year on the treadmill today. I’m pretty sure I will lose that one pound soon, along with the excess 20+.

And oh, yeah. Remember my Christmas wishlist? Hub and the kids granted my wish for new running shoes and a gym bag! Their gift means so much to me, not only because I really wanted the stuff, but because the kids actually shelled out money from their savings. I love my thoughtful kids.

The year is off to a good start. And I am sharing with you V’s paper cranes, along with wishes for my family, friends and all of you who read this blog –

Good health, abundance, happiness, peace, and everything that is good in 2013!

 

A spankin’ new theme!

Welcome to my new look!

I’ve been wanting to change my theme but there hasn’t been enough time or energy to do it while I was still working. So when I finally quit my work-from-home job, one of the projects I set out to do was to update my blog.

Although I loved my old WordPress theme, especially how SEO-friendly it was, the look was getting a bit too old. It was time to update it!

It happened accidentally. I was chatting with one of the winners in a recent blog contest I hosted for Potentilla Diffusers. Yvie happens to be  an artist and web designer and I’ve known her in the past few years through social media circles. (Facebook connects indeed!)

And so we discussed online, exchanged ideas and emails, designs went back and forth, until she finally came up with this custom WordPress theme for Imom Online! And I am so loving it. Continue reading A spankin’ new theme!
