Bonne année! (Happy new year!) Posting my holiday outfits just now because, let’s get real, who reads blogs during the Yuletide season? I don’t. 😛 Anyway, how was your Christmas and new year? I hope you guys had a wonderful vacation. Surprisingly, I had the most amazing Christmas in years, as I have become quite accustomed to welcoming bad luck every December.


As I’ve shared to you quite a number of times already, I came from a humble family and we didn’t normally ‘celebrate’ (meaning cook and give out presents) in our household for the holidays, until almost all of the children in the family graduated from school and began earning money. For a long time, we were satisfied with visiting our relatives, spending time with them, and letting the night pass.


The past three years was full of, shall I say, disaster. There were accidents and death in the family, all of which happened during the Christmas season for three consecutive years. Surely you’d understand why I have feared a month that is eagerly anticipated by everyone. 2012 was different, however. And I’m glad that finally, our luck has turned.


I’m thankful for a lot of things, really, which I will blog about soon. For now though, here are some photos of the outfit which I wore during my cousin’s wedding and my nephew’s christening. I may look like a tree, but there’s something about green that makes me happy and hopeful.
