Here’s to 22, praying for more growth in faith and welcoming more opportunities for the better!

Here’s to 22, to live freely and honestly.

Here’s to 22, to make more genuine connections and to love fearlessly.

Here’s to 22, to more blessings and to appreciate the beauty in this world.

Here’s to 22, thank You for giving me a wonderful family and great friends.

Here’s to 22, to treat myself kindly, to care more and to love myself.

Hello Spring! :)

Hi guys,

After being away from blogging for about a month now. It feels good to finally have time and the inspiration to blog again. Let me catch up with what’s happened so far in my life.

I have sat my ARSM (Associate of the Royal Schools of Music) Piano Diploma Exam and unexpectedly got a distinction result. I was completely over the moon when I found out! Yay me, I’m so glad that’s out of the way and that my hard work truly paid off.

I took some time off and spent time with my family, we went to Edinburgh and St. Andrew’s during the Easter break. (Speaking of Easter, I failed my promises during Lent, sorry Lord!)

Here’s some pictures of my sisters and mommy. Ladies family trip to Edinburgh! Bonding time is always a treasure. We just spent the day wandering around and we ate at Byron Burgers! I’m a huge burger girl, well honestly, I’d eat anything as long as there’s food, I’m a happy girl!

That’s probably the best burger I had in a while, it’s juicy but not too greasy, filling but it doesn’t make me bloated. Don’t get me started on the cheese fries and crunchy sweet potato fries. The service was great and the waiters were smiley and friendly! 🙂

We also went to St. Andrew’s and was blessed with beautiful sunny spring weather. I wanted to get away from the city rush so I suggested that we go to the beach! That 2.5 hr journey was worth it and the views were amazing!

It’s our second time visiting St. Andrew’s – it’s such a cute little town! It was our first time at West Sands beach though. We’re literally at the edge of the east of Scotland! We had a wander around.

Fun fact: Golf originated from St. Andrew’s Scotland in 1560! How fascinating is that? The Open Championships is the only championship outside of America. (I’ve to double check that fact though!)

Our trip isn’t complete if we didn’t grab a Jannetta’s Gelateria ice cream on our way back!

Vanilla and Chocolate Chip double scoop! YUM!

It felt good to get away from the rush, a lot has been going on in my head and it’s great to destress from time to time. I always have to remind myself to treat myself more often and that I’m allowed to relax!

That’s my personal update on welcoming the Spring season! I’ll blog about my musical experiences soon too – I’ve done quite a bit up to now.

xoxo, Patricia
