A Mother's Love.

"If you knew how great is a mother's love," Wendy told them triumphantly, "you would have no fear."

- Peter Pan, J.M. Barrie

I was never a fan of "Peter Pan" (the book), but I do love that line. :)

In case you didn't know, I am a mom of a beautiful soon-to-be-three-year-old and even though she drives me crazy on a daily basis, I can't imagine not having her in my life.

My dad keeps reminding me that everything happens for a reason, and it is so true. Syrena has definitely turned me into a better, more responsible human being.

And, even though I hit rock bottom in 2012, I ended up meeting someone who changed my life that year and who reminded me how love feels like. He is also the one who gave me the strength to move back in with my parents, where I am now wallowing in the awesomeness of motherhood.

And I have never been happier. :)

Here are some pictures captured by the person who changed my life for the better. I hope they put as big of a smile on your face as they did on mine. :)

And here's what I'm wearing in them:

blue short-sleeved sweater from Kashieca

stars-and-striped pants from TNC Manila
black boots from CeCe

I'm a sucker for anything with stars and stripes coz I was born in the US. :) Also, Wonder Woman is the most patriotic female superhero out there, so my obsession totes makes sense! :p

Unfortunately, these pants from TNC aren't exactly durable (they're slowly falling apart and I've only had them for half a year) and it took them forever to send them to me. So, if you know any place where I can buy longer-lasting ones, please do let me know! :)

If you look through my older outfit posts, you will definitely notice the change in my demeanor. I easily went from emo to over-the-top happy and I wouldn't have it any other way. :)

I hope 2013 has been full of good vibes for you, as well. On that note, what keeps you happy? :)
