So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s going to be really hard; we’re gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me… everyday.

❤️16 years old was the first time I said yes to a handsome, skinny tall boy.
It was 1995 when I transferred to a new school, I was at my senior year (4th year High School) when I met my other half, we were young back then and I didn’t realize that he will be the one that I’ll end up with. I was the first girl he courted but kudos to my then suitor he was very persistent and with just a couple of days of courtship it was official I was his girlfriend.
❤️25 years old was the second time I said YES to marry my one true love.
It was 2004 when my Adam asked for my hand in marriage. We were seated infront of the TV after our Baguio trip way back 2004. He asked “Gusto mo na ba magpakasal babe?May trabaho naman nako” I said YES kahit walang ring because I love him and he loves me. We had a civil wedding and guests was consisting of family and close friends from childhood.
❤️Now at 40 years old he asked and still I am saying YES for the 3rd time.
Fast-forward to 2019 a few months back, now lying on our bed watching TV with our two kids, Adam looked at me and said “It’s our 15th Wedding Anniversary soon and iba to. Gusto mo ba renew marriage vows natin and magpakasal tayo sa simbahan this time?” Who would have said no? Of course even at this age I would love to walk down the aisle and renew my vows with my Husband. I have dreamt of a church wedding wherein my daughter will be my flower girl and my son will be my ring bearer. The thought of that day just makes me smile.
A day before our 15th Wedding Anniversary (which was a couple of days ago) he woke up early and asked me to take a bath. He told me we were headed to Ongpin, when we got there he said come on lets go find you a ring. I was in cloud 9 , I felt like I was 16 again. We went to several stores and fell in love with the ring he chose. It was just perfect, like our love it was simple and true.
So there, we are renewing our vows and we are getting married in a church this time ❤️
From 1995 till forever.
