Initial Wedding Reflection

I should write about the wedding weekend I coordinated in San Francisco at the beautiful Terra SF and Bently Reserve however there is so much I want to write about. I know I’ll miss something as there were so many details. First and foremost, my bride and groom were fantastic! You couldn’t ask for better clients. No Bridezilla outbursts, raising of the voices or smashing of cakes. I lucked out and after a few hiccups that I had to troubleshoot by executive decision, their sincere appreciation for my and my team’s hard work was communicated verbally, thru hugs, sincere face expressions and in writing.

This past weekend I’ve come to realize again that there is not enough time in the day to everything I need to do and I need to make some changes. But I will one day at a time. No need for drastic changes but minor improvements will go a long way. Not only did I miss a homework assignment I needed to do last weekend, I was at church yesterday at a Filipino mass/festival in Martinez , CA honoring the first Filipino saint, Saint San Lorenzo Ruiz. It was at the same place where we had my grandmother’s, Luisa Abran, funeral at three years ago. And also the same place that my father first got to hold h
