Last weekend, I was at the city of Pines. It was an unplanned vacation, my mom was sent for a convention and my brother and I decided to tag along. I didn’t realize that the Panagbenga Festival is still on and the festive atmosphere was all over the place.

My Mama and I

Siblings with one BIG dog

It was cold and there’s a drizzle of rain from time to time but the chill weather only brought me serenity.

Every morning, I stare at the mountains watching as the clouds make way for the sun but I never really saw the sunlight during our stay there, it was a perfect time to talk to God and the overwhelming silence soothes my aching heart.

I love that weekend, it was something that I really needed and a chance for me to just sit back, take a moment and reflect on how life has been treating me these days. Sometimes, we get so caught up with our daily work that we forget to just breathe and be thankful for everything that God has given us.

Have a great week ahead everyone!

The famous big dog. My daughter's got a picture w/ that dog at Mine's View. The dog's name is Douglas but it got a different name at Botanical Garden. Lol.

Ay sis! We went there before the Panagbenga weekend kaya di namin inabutan ang street parties. Nagpa-pic din pala kayo kasama si Douglas, ang asong ubod ng laki! hehehe

True sis, sometimes we go about our daily lives rushing and we forget to stop even for a while and take in our surroundings, thank Him for the wonders of the world.

Have a great week ahead, sis! God bless!

Happy weekend!

Wow, it's nice of you to be able to see the Pinagbenga Festival. I have not seen it yet. It must be so colorful with all those flowers and people. Thanks for the post. God bless.
