July was quite amazing. Here's to an awesome August!

A Little Hello

Hello, new header. I like you because you seem less bulkier than my old one. Your moon looks a little awkward, but the navy blue glitter in the back resembles a night sky and I like that.

Hello, new category pics. To be honest, I don't really know what to call you. But I like you because you're a little bit more high-def than my previous ones (and also because I got you from Pugly Pixel!).

Hello, new fonts. I like you because you give my blog a somewhat fresher feel to it.

And, on another note, hello, windy days. I really like you but I hope your arrival doesn't signal an early fall. I'd prefer to hold on to the summer weather, thank you.

Hello, Youtube. I like you because you rekindled my love for music. Hello, Kurt Schneider, Nick Pitera, Christina Grimmie, and all you other Youtube musicians out there.

Hello, change. I used to detest you (sometimes I still do), but now I'm beginning to realize that you're an absolutely inevitable part of life. I should just accept and embrace you, and I think I'm starting to do that. You're really not such a bad thing, after all.

Hello, God. I love You because You've been teaching me so much these past few weeks. I'm really grateful.
I love You because You're always there for us, Your children, even and especially during hardships. Thank You for the comfort and the hope.
I love You because You've provided me with everything I need. Thank You because You are everything I need.

And, God, I love You for so many more reasons, but I don't want the focus to be on my love for You because, really, Your love for me is a billion times greater.
So thank You, God. Sometimes I don't say that as often as I should, but thank You. For the blessings, for the hardships. For everything.

O Canada!

Yesterday, July 1, was Canada Day.

My family and I spent the day on a picnic with a couple of friends from church.

And so, like what 99.9% of bloggers do when they experience something exciting and/or memorable, I am going to unleash a photo dump. Of course.
(I was able to borrow my dad's DSLR and his 70-250 mm lens, which is perfect for picnic shots. So yay to that!)

My photos aren't the best in the world, but I hope you enjoy them. :)

Oh, yes, summer has really begun.
(Unless you're in the Philippines, which, in that case, summer has just ended. I'm sorry! But, hey, rain is pretty cool too.)
