I reached a certain comfort zone in life when I thought - I already have all the friends I really need. But then people came along who challenged that, and without trying, it’s multifaceted, multi talented you who stands out. That time we walked around the sleepy downtown of Basco and discovered a little art gallery was my favorite. I never really got to attend your crafternoons from end to end but you seem to rub off your creativity on me. Remember those Wednesday afternoon calligraphy sessions? We must have done something good together in our past lives to connect so easily in this lifetime. I can’t think of anyone else who could have stood behind me and fixed my veil before they opened the church doors, no one else would have thought of sprinkling flowers on the forgotten cake to make it pretty, and I definitely do not know anyone as down to earth as you despite the many things you can do. I admit I haven’t seen all sides of you and will probably never see that side of you who plays a good game of basketball, but I just know: you will do many more great things, things no one else would pull off so flawlessly. My hypothetical future children would be so lucky to have Auntie Alessa as babysitter when Euge and I need to take off for a while. 😜 Here’s to uniform dressing, 10 second rants and wife pacts, to making things and making things happen, and to more shopping dates and years and years of friendship. May we never ever FO, amen. πŸŒŸπŸ‘Œ

It’s the busiest time of year. Nothing but gratitude for all the positive energy that goes around - for family and friends who understand when we can’t always be there, and of course to the best supporting husband I can ever ask for. 😊 #bdjliveitup (at SM Mall of Asia)

As kids, we lived on opposite ends, and we would literally run to meet each other halfway. For 6 years now we’ve been a plane ride apart, and I always miss having you around. But looking at this photo of you the morning of my wedding, watching as I had photos taken at the balcony, I just know — you are always still looking out for me regardless how far away we are. No wonder we are always mistaken as sisters ☺️ Here’s to my traveler friend, the one who wastes no weekends, my favorite cheerleader — thank you for being one of those friends who would catch a plane home for me in a heartbeat. I hope you know, you are gold. 🌟 (at Fundacion Pacita )

Because today I almost lost my rings. In the rain, through the gutter, into the canal. #whatisstress
