Now that I’m in the L.A. area, I’ve been getting to know my wonderful Filipino mother who lives here. She is the greatest mother-in-law!
I LOVE her!
Given how fast I got married (and that I got married in NC), I had not had much time with her previously so this several days has really been my first chance to get to know her more.
My husband and his dance partner competed for the first time with their routine this weekend at the Paradise Dance Festival and won 3rd place! I am so proud of them both and excited for what is ahead!
While Eddie was away, my new mom and I got a chance to spend a day together. See below for a visual journey of our very special day together. It was one of the most relaxing and fun days I can remember for a long while now (as I have been very very busy prior).
As you can see we had a very Asian day (which I did not mind at all!) My home decor is pretty much all Asian style (and was even prior meeting Eddie, my Asian hubby) and I already very much love many Asian ways, so in many ways I already feel very at home in my new Valdez Filipino family.
And anyways, besides that, I am part Asian…
After all, I’m cauc-ASIAN.
