LDR Blues No More: 2015 Highlights

LDR Blues. That’s how I usually started the titles of my posts regarding my LDR sentiments and experiences before. I blogged about them to reach out to others who are in the same situation. I still love sharing these posts until now because I’m still amazed on how everything turned out very well after an eight-year on-line friendship plus five-year long-distance relationship. 2015 is such a great year for us because this is the year that we finally closed the gap! Before I share some of the coolest things that happened the past year, let’s look back first on how everything started…

Family Roadtrips

Roadtrips with family are fun. They said that when I wasn’t still here, Marte, my hubby, didn’t use to join them. Maybe it’s because, he didn’t have a partner yet. šŸ˜›

Why is this called Diablo Lake, anyway? #roadtrip

Spoiled Wife

I wasn’t really asking but he always surprises me with the things I love. The following are Sara Bareilles stuff but he also gives me other things if you check my IG account. Hehe.

First Job in the US

I used to be a teacher in the Philippines but since I’m not a certified teacher here, I had to search for a different job. God is so good because he still put me in a school. This time, I work in a preschool. I can now also help my hubby for finances. šŸ™‚

Thank you for scrolling down until the end. šŸ™‚ If you’re also in LDR, just be patient. It’s all worth the wait. So many things had happened and it’s just our first year. Can’t wait for the new great things to come. šŸ™‚
