:: happy 60th ::

Happy Birthday to my Mom & Dad!  Ok, it’s actually my mom’s real birthday today and my dad’s was last July 9th.  They both just turned 60 and if I look half as good as they do when I’m 60, I’d be happy.

Mom and Dad, here’s to both of you for being such good parents to me and my 3 siblings.  Thank you for taking that giant leap of faith when you both decided to move our whole family from the Philippines to Chicago in 1982…. for a better life and a better future, with all of us in mind…  I’m proud to say that you did good raising 4 children in a different world, where every aspect of experience is brand new.  We’ve come a long way… Thank you for your guidance throughout school and life in general.  Your dreams of having all 4 of us graduate from college is coming to fruition, with Kristine’s graduation right around the corner…  Thank you for being such good role models to all of us.  You both are truly an inspiration.  I love you… We all love you…



The next two photos are baby photos of my parents… Seeing old photos like these just makes me love my job even more…

Knowing that someday down the line, the photographs that I’ve taken will mean so much more…


Mom, thank you for all your support and unconditional love.

20090407-misha-media-ps1Dad, thank you for providing for our family and being the rock.

Happy Birthday Mom (and Dad)!

Life Is Good…

C’mon blog friends and readers!  Go ahead and greet my Mom (and Dad) a Happy Birthday!  You know who you are.  They’d be so happy to hear from y’all!
