you should understand where this smile comes from.

andrew daniel bautista.

it's only been a little over a month now since andrew and i have been "official", but we've come a long way from where we started. looking back, i never thought i'd be in a relationship with anyone because i didn't want one. looking back, i never thought i'd be in a relationship with him. he's not the typical type i go for, but for some reason i like him, a lot. i like him a lot more that i thought i could or even would. maybe it sounds cliche, but he has truly become my best friend. i've shared secrets with him and i've cried to him. he's been here for me and i know he won't let me down. he's taught me things i've never known before, he's introduce me to new ideas that had never crossed my mind, and he's been a big inspiration in my day to day living. maybe i'm falling too hard way too fast? but who is one to put a time frame on love? it's my heart and i chose who i fall in love with; and i am so in love with him. i can honestly say, he's the reason behind my smile, the smile he tells me he loves. he knows how to make me laugh, how to make me smile, how to push my buttons (when i'm not pushing his), how to cheer me up, and how to make me view things differently. he's amazing and i wouldn't trade the time we have spent together for anything. i hope there are many more months to come.

Prayers for my dear Jill.

i was looking at some old photos, which i do from time to time when i'm bored, and i came across the photos i took during Christmas break. This shot, obviously, was not taken by me, but by my friend Jill. Jill is going through a lot. This past week she lost two very close people in her life. i couldn't begin to imagine the pain i'd feel if i were in her position, but she is so strong. she is holding up and i admire her for her strength. she's her same old bubbly self. i miss her dearly and i am so glad to have her apart of my life for over 16 years.

Spring Break '09

i guess there isn't much to say, except I absolutely love my best friend. i honestly don't know where i'd be without her. we didn't do anything crazy or really adventurous, but just her being here made me realize how blessed i am to have her in my life. i will miss her when she's back home and i would do anything to shorten the distance to her, but i will take advantage of all the visits we share.

sarah, i love you. i'm so glad you were able to come down and experience my spring break with me. in the few days we were together, some things went down that i wish you didn't have to go through, but that's life and i am so very glad i was by your side to talk you through it. i am so blessed to be apart of your life and you be apart of mine. i feel a sense of true hapiness with you even if we're sitting around my laptop on myspace or flickr, watching TV, or bored out of our minds thinking of things to get into. i guess there isn't a dull moment with you even in those dull times. the smoothies were delicious. the exercising and eating "right", well trying to, was fun! really, it was!...i'll try to keep it up! we'll be seeing some nice muscle soon! haha. summer time! our mini "photoshoots" were great! always laughing and smiling with you! i kind of feel like i'm writing a love note or something, but i guess i kind of am. i love you like a sister and a best friend! i wouldn't trade it for the world! you mean so much to me!!
