Super late post.
The one place I spent most of my summer days at…
Yep you said it. The beach.
Skate or Die.
We skated, beached it, and swam it.
All that brown though. My aunt wishes she was my age.
That asian girl in the back though. The best photo of us ever.
The best beach days= spontaneous lookouts.
First time at Santa Monica Pier with the best people in the world.
There’s two things I love at that’s my family and the beach. Put those two things together than I’m set.
Finally I’m 19. It feels like I’ve been 18 for the longest time. I did a lot on my birthday &throughout the whole week. But these are the pictures that I currently have on my laptop.
I spent my saturday with these wonderful people. (Rayne is sadly not pictured but she was there.)
Blurry pictures make me happy.
Sometimes you just gotta hang loose.
We suck at taking photos.
The two oldest like to annoy the two youngest. <3
This was supposed to be a candid but it didn’t work out quite the way we wanted it too. But smiles on top of smiles.
I have spent so much time with my family &friends for my birthday &my cousins. I’m so excited to post more pictures. <3
I have this goal to one day live in San Francisco.
&To end my adventurous summer, I spent the last week in San Francisco. Oh man was it the greatest experience of my life. We came to San Francisco to attend my cousins wedding. &spontaneously my cousin &I decided to stay a little longer. We got to adventure around the city &every day was amazing and beautiful.
This city will soon be mine.
I’ve always been in love with San Francisco. I have never actually been there till this summer. And let me tell you this. Such an amazing experience.
Everything is so beautiful and elegant. It’s different.
Everywhere you go there’s something new to look at.
Thank you to these two wonderful ladies for letting my cousin &I stay with them &taking us out on our many adventures.
I feel in love with this city. &I can’t wait to call it my city. I am definitely coming to San Francisco more often. I can’t wait to go back. Words can’t describe how much I loved that trip. It’s time for me to release the little girl who is consumed by wanderlust. Because I want to see the world.
Dear Mommy Rose,
This was the last day I will be able to see you physically. First off, I love you &I miss you so much. If I had the strength to talk in front of everyone this is what I would have said. “Good evening everyone. For those of you who don’t know me I’m Jessica. I’m one of her anaks from the house. I’ve known Mommy Rose for almost 19 years now, basically I’ve known her my whole life. She helped shape the person I am today. She took care of my cousins &I from day one. She always had all these juices &milks for us, she always made sure we ate, she always reminded us how much she loves us. She always threw these amazing house parties, she would use any occasion to throw a party just so her family and friends could be together. She’s made a huge impact in everyone’s lives. As you can all see from the past couple of nights including tonight all of you are here today because my Mommy Rose has impacted your life some how. She always had this certain charm where she could make friends with anyone she talked too. She always cared for each and every single one of her friends. When I first found out that Mommy Rose had cancer I wasn’t mature enough to understand what it exactly was. As I grew older I started to learn. She was always so strong and she always had this smile on her face even when she was in pain. She had this positivity that she taught to my cousins &I. She loved her grandchildren more than anything in this world. I remember it like it was just yesterday when she found out that her second grand child was going to be a girl. She’s always wanted a girl. But instead she had my cousins Mariz, Darene, Megan &I. &It worked out better she always told us that she now has the daughters she always wished she had. &Ava lee her granddaughter is now an addition to our sisterhood. There’s so much to say but I must cut it short. Kuya K &Ate Brenda, Mommy Rose will always be in our hearts &we will always be a family. I love you guys &Mommy Rose is now watching over us. Kaleb &Ava, my two darling niece &nephew. As you guys get older I hope that when you’re at a certain age you’ll remember who your grandma was &how much she loves you. I hope that you’ll be able to remember that. But of course we will always tell you stories about your grandma because we love her. Daddy Cel, I love you. You’re like my second father. Mama Rose will always be in your heart guiding you towards where you should be going. She will remind you of the things that need to be remembered, she will give you a sign that she’s watching over you, she will give you as much love as she possibly can. Mommy Rose, like daddy cel you’ll always be my second mom. You’ll always be one of the people who shaped me to be the person I am today, because I think I’m doing a pretty good job. &I hope I’m making you proud. I love you with all my heart &I miss you quite terribly. With that being said I wish to share you the last thing Mommy Rose told me. She told me to live my life because life is short. &I’m so glad that I remember this 100% clearly her last official words were “Have fun anak, stay safe, drive safe, I love you anak.”
This is only part 1, &If you’re reading this mommy rose, there’s so much I would like to tell you.
