mum's thoughts, gratitude, meeting up with mum friends, Thankful Thursday, friends

A dear friend of mine is here for a very short vacation and I am really thankful that she made time from her busy crazy schedule to meet me and her god son. It has been about 2 years since we last saw her and I really missed her company, and even when we do get to chat from time to time, I guess nothing can really replace being with someone face-to-face to update each other about the latest in our lives.

We met with her and her daughter at SM North yesterday and we really had such a wonderful time. Apart from the endless tales and stories, I also enjoyed our impromptu food trip of local delicacies that include the famous Razon’s halo-halo and a cup of binatog topped with butter, cheese, and a drizzle of milk. Just yum!  :plate:
