Things I Love Sundays: Family

I'm at the home of one of my very best friends in Melbourne right now. My tummy is tight and full from the dinners, lunches and brunches left and right. I'm so glad to have made this trip. It reminds me a lot of what I treasure in my life: my families, my closest friends and the gift of travel. It was so nice to see and catch up with family I haven't seen in a long time. It's heartwarming to be welcomed inside the homes of family I grew up with and to be brought around the country. I'm immensely touched by people who've taken time out of their lives to show me around. I'm forever blessed by this!

Now that I've sufficiently oriented you with what happened, here are some photos from the past few days of my life. I love Australia!

I've met the Wells in Germany and then again in Amsterdam and they made me promise to see them if ever I come to Adelaide. So I did!

Chai is one of my very best friends and we grew up together since we were 12! I'm so glad I finally came to visit her here in Melbourne and celebrated with her on her 30th!

I have one more day of gallivanting around Melbourne and then it's hello again {hot and humid} Manila. But unlike any other day, I start with my new company and I'm super duper excited!  I'm glad this trip proved to be an amazing bookend to an end and a beginning.
