why is it?

that I don't have the traveling bug, when everyone around me seems to have it?
Have I just not caught it yet? Could it be because I grew up without the luxury of vacations? Could it be because I'm a work-a-holic? Or could it be because to me, I enjoy my life the way it is- with all the luxuries and glamour it has to offer on a day to day basis? I mean, don't get me wrong, I love going out of town once in a while, seeing new things. However, I think, since I never really put much thought into traveling around the world, then I don't feel as if I'm missing out on something. Yes, the hubby and I want to travel and see the world one day. However, on our list of priorities, it's not really on the top 3. Owning our own house though, definitely number 1 priority. And yes, seeing my family in the Philippines is also important to me- at least in my top 5, but only because I feel it is important for me to connect back to who I fundamentally am and where I come from. It's a way for me to get to know myself.

Here's a few pics of my trip to the Philippines in January...

Nanay (Grandma) and Raine

I'm a godmother! God help this child! HA!

With two of my favorite people in the Philippines (for those of you wondering, I have a few other favorite people there :)

A shocker- Super Panda with no make up! It totally melts off your face there!

Such cute kids! Amaru and Raine.

And that's not all of the Bernardino's!
