Journaling: Even the littlest of things make me berry happy just like the Strawberry Shortcake collection I share with my daughter, Dannah. As a child, I was already fond of Strawberry Shortcake, seeing the cute figurines my Tita Brenda had back then. I told myself one day when I am already capable, I will buy all the Strawberry Shortcake stuff that will suit my fancy. I was berry happy when that time came last 2005 when I started collecting Strawberry Shortcake stuff, from bags to wallets to pillows, notebooks, stickers and more. We are able to acquire a DVD of Strawberry Shortcake which Dannah and I love to watch together. We even sing the theme song together. Surely, Strawberry Shortcake is one of the little things that make me berry happy. March 22, 2008.

Journaling: These photos remind me of the bonding moments I had with my daughter, Dannah when she joined my Crop Science 1 field trip to Baguio and Pangasinan last February 23-25, 2008.
We had so much fun together shopping for pasalubong, strolling, taking each other's pictures and of course eating out. We even bought similar bonnets which we wore while we were in Baguio.
I know there will be more moments like these ahead of us. I hope and pray that when you grow up, you'll not forget to spend some time with me and we'll always have our share of bonding moments.
Thanks for looking!
