A Peek At My 2013 Planner: That "One And Only" Thing To Do Monthly !

by: Mhe-anne L. Ojeda

After 3 days of missed opportunities to buy a 2013 Planner, I finally got two red Executive Diary planners (for bf & me!) and it's FREE! How lucky could I get! Thanks to my sister-in-law's sistah who works for Smart Communications. 

The Planner is exactly what I have wanted! Nothing fancy, but complete with the usual useful stuff for travelers - like conversion (not currency though), Philippine map,World map, MRT  routes, emergency numbers,financial summary, address book, foreign embassies, official government directory, notes, world in summary, IDD Codes, NDD, plus good -to-know stuff like birth signs, zodiac signs, birthstones and flowers, traditional anniversary gifts, and fitting quotes.

Here's a two-fold quote for a starter - 

"Dreams as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die tomorrow" - James Dean

"Live as if you'll die tomorrow" best describes how my 2012 had been! I checked off 50 Tasks in the Book "2001 Things To Do Before You Die" and enjoyed 12 Combo Trips around new destinations worldwide  which was included in a compilation by Regine Camille Garcia entitled PTB December Year - Ender: The Year We Traveled Like It's the End of the World

"Dreams as if you'll live forever" 
hit so close to home!  I'm that type of person who always  welcome each year with a  long "to -do" list and getting busy checking it off everyday without any limitations. But there's a slight change this year. As I Start Living 12 Happy Months  ahead of me, I will focus on that ONE THING each month that would last - FOREVER 

"A house is not a home until it contains food and fire 
for the mind as well as the body"
Joyful JANUARY. Start the year right by jumping to shed more pounds (not the moolah from  UK Travel!) but a few more of the love handles that aren't that lovable (*sulk). Detoxify. Seriously get healthy (and wealthy too) for a more secured future (naks!)

"Life is a journey, and love is what makes that journey worthwhile"
Loving FEBRUARY. Looking forward to Valentines Day - yea who doesn't love flowers, chocolates, a romantic meal and a weekend get-away! (*hinting!)

Rewarded MARCH. The month for graduation and commencement so I'll stop the "I" and commence the "we" - and take a road trip for two to Calaguas for a pre-nup photoshoot. (sorry guys not what you're thinkin'.it's for our friend Bryan and Izah).

Peaceful APRIL. Enjoy peace and quiet during the Holy Week (while still in our province Camarines Norte). 

Merry MAY. My last hurrah to enjoy my last summer as a single woman. Oh well, let's see if I have time to do that (while buried deep in the big day planning and panting!).

"Love is a promise, love is a souvenir. 
Once given, never forgotten, never let it disappear"
Optimistic  JUNE. This picture says it all, so enough said! Travel? Of course, there should be a honeymoon to the moon right? Nah, Boracay and Bacolod are fine! 

"Love is a second life; it grows into the soul,  
warms every vein, and beats in every pulse"
Exciting JULY. Of course! I will celebrate for the first time the birthday of my hubby (ahem!) and flights had been booked to Coron (Busuanga),Palawan.

Informed AUGUST. Learning the ropes for motherhood???
Selfless SEPTEMBER.Yes! It isn't about me - baby!
Young OCTOBER. Who says turning forty is OLD and no FUN?It will be my first birthday with a hubby so I'm young!!!

Quiet NOVEMBER. We are celebrating the third year  of our family temple sealing in Cebu.

"Love is like a bazaar; The admittance is free 
but it costs you something before you get out"
Delightful DECEMBER. The time of the year again for hitting bazaars and Christmas  destinations. Let the tummy (of a mommy) decides where to go!

So there you have it folks. My biggest and brightest dreams are happening this year! Cheers!!!
