Love Month ♥♥♥

February is the second month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian calendars. It is the shortest month and the only month with fewer than 30 days. The month has 28 days in common years or 29 days in leap years.

February is the third month of meteorological winter in the Northern Hemisphere. In the Southern Hemisphere, February is the seasonal equivalent of August in the Northern Hemisphere (which is the third month of summer), in meteorological reckoning.

February starts on the same day of the week as March and November in common years, and on the same day of the week as August in leap years. February ends on the same day of the week as October every year and on the same day of the week as January in common years only. In leap years, it is the only month that ends on the same weekday it begins.

As for me:

Love month as they call it, February seems to awaken people’s yearning  for “LOVE”. People feel obligated to have a special someone, to buy expensive flowers and chocolates and to go out on a date which results to a tremendous and horrifying  traffic. I’m not being cynical about the Love month but I don’t get it! Why do you need to wait for February just to give your girl a bunch of flowers that is already 3x pricey. And if you are single, why force yourself to go out with someone you don’t really like just for the sake of showing people you’re with someone.

Love should be celebrated everyday! Love should be spontaneous and consistent. You don’t need to wait for February to show someone they are special. You can do it everyday. A simple kiss on the cheek, a hug before you leave, a stroke on her hair, cooking his favorite meal and a tight embrace before you go to sleep are just things you can do to make her/him feel special.

Flowers dry up, Chocolates melt and expensive meals get flushed on the toilet. Small gestures of love are lasting memories that will be treasured for life. I choose to give and receive the gestures. Be ready for a million hugs from me 🙂 Happy Valentines!

I had you on my Birthday

Baby Tanya

I had you on my birthday.

We didn’t plan it nor

we didn’t pray for it,

But I guess God gave me more reason to commemorate the day I was born.

Belat

You were a pretty awesome gift.

A gift, I will forever be thankful for.

I named you Nathania Ysabella for two simple reasons,

Nathania  is of Hebrew origin, and its meaning is “God has given”.

Isabella is your father’s chosen name,

it too has a Hebrew origin. It means ‘God is my oath.’

I changed the “I” to “Y” to make it a little bit different since this name is very prevalent.

A few months after your name “Ysabella” became a TV series.

Tanya

You gave us so much joy,

You brought meaning to our lives.

And continue to inspired us to do better as a person,

and as a couple.

Beyoncé – Love On Top (Lyric)

Bring the beat in

Honey honey
I can see the stars all the way from here
Can’t you see the glow on the window pane
I can feel the sun whenever you’re near
Every time you touch me I just melt away

Now everybody ask me why I’m smiling out from ear to ear
(They say love hurts)
But I know (it’s gonna take the real work)
Nothing’s perfect but it’s worth it
After fighting through my tears and finally you put me first

Baby it’s you
You’re the one I love
You’re the one I need
You’re the only one I see
Come on baby it’s you
You’re the one that gives your all
You’re the one I can always call
When I need to make everything stop
Finally you put my love on top

Ooh come on baby
You put my love on top top top top top
You put my love on top
Ooh ooh
Come on baby
You put my love on top top top top top
You put my love on top
My love on top

Baby I can feel the wind whipping past my face
As we dance the night away
And boy your lips tastes like a night of champagne
As I kiss you again and again and again and again

Now everybody ask me why I’m smiling out from ear to ear
(They say love hurts)
But I know (it’s gonna take the real work)
Nothing’s perfect but it’s worth it
After fighting through my tears and finally you put me first

Baby it’s you
You’re the one I love
You’re the one I need
You’re the only one I see
Come on baby it’s you
You’re the one that gives your all
You’re the one I can always call
When I need to make everything stop
Finally you put my love on top

Ooh baby
You put my love on top top top top top
You put my love on top
Ooh ooh
Come on baby
You put my love on top top top top top
Put my love on top
My love on top

Baby it’s you
You’re the one I love
You’re the one I need
You’re the only thing I see
Come on baby it’s you
You’re the one that gives your all
You’re the one I can always calls
When I need you baby everything stops
Finally you put my love on top

Baby you’re the one that I love
Baby you’re all I need
You’re the only thing I see
Come on baby it’s you
You’re the one that gives your all
You’re the one that always calls
When I need you make everything stops
Finally you put my love on top

Baby cause you’re the one that I love
Baby you’re the one that I need
You’re the only one I see
Baby baby it’s you
You’re the one that gives your all
You’re the one that always calls
When I need you everything stops
Finally you put my love on top

Baby ’cause you’re the one that I love
Baby you’re the one that I need
You’re the only one I see
Baby baby it’s you
You’re the one that gives your all
You’re the one that always calls
When I need you everything stops
Finally you put my love

L♥ving what you do…

do

We have a lot of things to do on this life time.

From the moment we wake up,

‘Til our time of slumber.

We even plan our chores for the next day,

before saying goodbye to today.

But out of all these things that we do,

which one comes from the heart?

When do we say “I love what I do

or should it be “I do what I love“?

As for me,

I’d say “I Love what I do!”

I don’t go out of my way,

Just to look for that one thing that I would love doing.

I’d do anything time permits me to do,

And I’ll learn to fall in love with it.

They say: “You only live once

So why the heck will you waste your time,

Looking for that something that you have no idea of.

I’d say go and try out new things,

And when you’re on the verge of doing it,

Try to commit to it.

Make yourself open to loving it.

Who knows,

This must be something that will make you say…

I Love what I do!” 🙂

10 Things Every Marriage Needs

  1. Open Communication—Marriage is sometimes difficult – don’t compound it by keeping secrets. Tell each other everything and your relationship will show the results.
  2. Teamwork—Working together is a part of any successful marriage. However you need to, carry the load equally.
  3. Focus on Spirituality—Stay focused on what matters by praying, studying, and learning together.

  5. A Clean Home—It is undeniable that having a nice place to spend your time will increase happiness and keep your relationship strong. Work together to keep your place nice and it will ease your stress!
  6. Budgeting—One of the biggest mistakes couples can make is not keeping up with their money. Budget together and keep the power out of just one person’s hands, and money won’t stress you out!
  7. Time Alone—While it’s always fun together, taking a little time alone can make your time together that much sweeter.
  8. Sex— Physical intimacy is an important part of any marital relationship. Be on the same page about it, but always keep the passion alive
