2 People…2 Stories…1 New Beginning…

In 2001… 2 friends got married! Literally… Do you know that WE NEVER DATED ?? My friend aka my current hubby… just proposed in December 2000… 1 year later we got married…

My Dad owned a printing publishing company back then… So I designed the invitation!  Can’t you tell I LOVE flowers….and those were our pictures… when we were babies 🙂


Our verses were Jeremiah 29:11….Ecclesistes 3: 1 and Genesis 2:24

The invitations were in the middle… 3 languages.. Chinese, Indonesian and English


This was our program…. Today… I will marry my friend…

Our Wedding favors were 2002 desk calendars… I designed it with my Dad. It has to be a stationary so it would be FREE right 🙂 You can change the picture on the left with your own… and the calendar sheet on the right can be changed as well 🙂


At the church…



My beloved Pastor Mastra officiated!  I couldn’t be more blessed!  I miss his church so much! That is a man who set a real example of humility, humor, wisdom and sound theology!

We sang at our wedding… Of course!

I thank God and Praise GOD everyday… 12 years and 3 kids later…. HIS LOVE, GRACE, MERCIES and PROVISION has been faithfully presents  in the center of our home…

Oh NO! no presents but notes from Santa

Well, my kids have been fighting and not listening to me these past few days…. I told them that Santa only bring gifts to those who are good….

So this morning, Mom and Dad got gifts in those bags…



The kiddos got NOTES from Santa!!

Were they upset??? J was a little bit upset!


Then Sam said, ” I know where all the gift bags are… I found them and saw them inside your closet!”

So he ran up the stairs… with G and J ….. but did NOT find anything… Santa must have been really upset!


Here are the letters! … I know I am mean to report bad behaviors to Santa… but they need to learn their lessons!  So far…. at least one of them has been making good choices! 🙂
