until then

this is another layout i created pre-valentine for a walk down memory lane.

while doing this layout, i initially struggled with the title. i had a hard time finding myself and what i want to write about. but as i was going through the process of creating the ad, it suddenly struck a chord in me. that one thought that is always at the back of my mind.

the emotions i felt as i was finishing this and as i was writing my journal left me with a heavy heart when i went to sleep that night. these moments come and go for me ever since that day. still, we strive to move forward with our lives. as i said, until then...

Only time can tell when we will be more than just you and me. The time when we can be called a real family. For now, we will continue hoping and praying for God’s blessing upon us. We will continue to be happy with the two of us together, awaiting full happiness when the time comes. Until then… (February ’09)

  7. Hi, kapatid. You and Nelo are a family, sis! You're two of the strongest and sweetest people and you've gone through a lot and have a wonderful future ahead of you.

    A friend once said about a couple who were trying for a baby, "Hindi pa nagagawa sa baby factory in heaven yung baby nyo." In His time, dearest, and I'm always praying for yours and Nelo's hearts to be strong, have faith and to deal with the pain. I know it never goes away, kapatid, but God does work in mysterious ways.

    God bless you, kapatid.


    P.S. Nauna kasi ang drama. Love the layout kapatid! Love the girl and boy images! Are those stamps? Loving how you incorporate little techniques into your layouts, like the "This is our story" stamp and the stencil. Gorgeous.
