hi linnor,
i came here thru pinoy moms network, i enjoy reading your blog and looking at your photos, I will surely come back. thanks for sharing.


Thanks for visiting! Hope you’d come by often! πŸ˜€

Linnor, I tracked you here from my blog. Thanks for visiting. And wow, I wish I had blog hopped to your site earlier. I just LOVE your list of 100 but loved even more the fact that your hubby added 10 more. Ang sweet naman ninyo!

Let’s communicate some more. My kids (all 4) are Chinoys also and my in-laws are 2 hours away from you by fast craft. I speak Cebuano too and am a CPA as well. More common stuff based on what I saw in your list. Like….not loving to cook (hahahaha)

Are we twins? Are you my long lost sis? Hahaha!

i’ve been reading you for a long time. i think you can safely claim that you have a kind, even temperament. can’t remember you ever writing about being upset about anything. πŸ™‚

i’m a scorpio too btw. oct 29.


thanks for dropping by. I think, I stumbled upon your blog first, though.


I try my best not to flare up since I met Jerry. He’s the kindest person I know and being with him made me realize he doesn’t deserve any of my mood swings. Proof that when you are surrounded by good people, you naturally acquire the trait.

My birthday is Oct 30, how uncanny!

Thanks for visiting! πŸ˜€
