America, Here We Come!

Imagine getting married in New York! At Saint Patrick’s Cathedral! What a positively divine decadence! My parents and I have been helping out my cousin with her wedding favors and we’re bringing these with us on the 15th. (ohhh, how many days to go?!?!) She’s giving out Filipiniana wedding favors and gifts to her guests. And we’ve been scouring the stores to find stuff for her. I’m suddenly appreciating the beauty of Filipino handicrafts only now. We bought these really pretty lotus candleholders made of capiz, heart shaped capiz boxes, capiz placemats and coasters, embroidered purses made of banana fiber, embroidered table cloths and napkins and pillow cases and bed spreads. Very beautiful.

I can’t wait to attend a posh New York wedding! Now if only the bump and I could find something New York-ish to wear…
