FOTD: On my Lola's 85th and being with family.

These past few months have been jam-packed with celebrations. Of course we can count Christmas and New Years as a part of that, which constitutes a whole lot of picture taking as well. Coincidentally a bunch of birthday celebrations were part of all the January hoopla, and this year, as the title suggests was my Lola's (Grandmother's) 85th birthday. The event happened yesterday and we decided to celebrate it in Makati Sports Club. We invited a couple of her closest friends from college, her prayer groups, parish, and of course family. Before I forget, all photos in this post were taken by my dad.

Here are a couple of photos of the celebration and of course my second FOTD post :)

It was definitely a fun celebration! I've always been a family girl and us Lorenzana's have always been a close knit group. We even call ourselves "Dikit-pusod" because we're so close that it seems as if we're all joined at the bellybutton! Haha I absolutely love how close we are, and I feel so immensely blessed to have them in my life and call them my family.

With Love,

It was also my Tita's birthday on the same day.
