I did not want it to end.

We went to this beautiful place, up in the mountains.  It was like finding gold buried in rubbles. It made me instantly dream of having my own little place, as simple and beautiful as Noah’s place.  Everything there equated to my definition of HOME.  You know, imperfectly perfect.  Wood. Yellow paint. Plants. Huge trees. Little trinkets that makes a home HOME.  Know what I mean??

It’s a family cottage strategically placed on a higher ground, overlooking vast scenery of greens.  Beyond that, the sea that separates Leyte and the northern part of Cebu can be seen too. Imagine waking up to something like this each morning? It’s like heaven on earth.

Photographing Chris and Cherry felt like blowing bubbles, eating cotton candy, and sipping a glass of cold lemonade on as summer day.  Everything about this couple felt light and happy. Don’t you just love couple’s like that?

Some photos.

Thank you for the hospitality and making us feel appreciated.
