There are a select few people I patiently wait for to post their end-of-year recap videos, and here are some of my favorites.
@RACHEYwrites 2017 Best Nine on Instagram | What a year it has been… from my highest of highs to my lowest of lows, my gratitude comes down to one thing: love. This year has shown me true love with my now-husband Mark, true love in genuine friendships, and true love for what I do to make money and build a career for myself. The photos (above) of my “best nine” photos on Instagram is a mere glimpse of how much love I experienced this year, so here’s a blog post of the most major highlights — both highs and lows.
Mark and I have been practicing for our wedding day since 2011 — and I am so ready to be married to my best friend. All the wedding photography and photobooths we did together leads us up to the very moment when we’ll be able to celebrate our love with our closest family and friends. As of right this very second, we have FOUR (and a half) FULL DAYS LEFT.
Sanctuary! I am currently thawing my frozen fingers from getting stranded at the San Juan Capistrano train station for 20 whole minutes because I mistakenly took the wrong train.
If you’ve followed my blog or YouTube for the last ten or more years, I’m sure you know Jesse! If you don’t know who this guy is (in the photo above), meet him now… this is Jesse Truong! My “BGF” (aka “best guy friend”), the Stitch to my Lilo-self, and the nerd who made being a “nerd” cool. This guy right here is going to marry me and Mark, and I am so excited! wooot~ 🙌🏾
In the midst of all the wedding planning and happy moments, a very sad thing happened last week. Mark’s grandmother — also known as nanay — passed away. It’s been hard, especially since our upcoming wedding day is on Nanay’s 93rd birthday.
Mark and I are Disney fanatics. It’s only right to celebrate our important day with a theme we absolutely love: a Disney theme!
Jenelle did her first official photoshoot! She’s been taking photos and dressing up since she was born because of my sister and mom, so she was a natural. It’s so crazy that this little munchkin is FOUR. Oh my, time flies…
