My 2017 hello.



It’s been a long, long time. I’m trying to come back. Let’s hope I stay and continue this personal photo blog.

Mil & Mon in California, years ago.

Bright, red-orange roses



These bright, red-orange roses are making me  fall in love. As we are approaching Valentine’s Day, don’t forget to explore other colors aside from the red roses.


Every now and then, don’t forget to dream. Dream big and most importantly, don’t forget to wake up and go reach those dreams.

Norfolk Island Pine & Hello 2016


Hello 2016. I’ve been gone way too long. I find that I cannot commit to something if I am not good at. I’m horrible at writing and my grammar sucks. So, I hope my photographs will make up for it. 😛

I fell inlove with these Norfolk Island Pines. Thanks to instagram. I bought myself two Norfolk Island Pines from Bachman’s. One is a baby, perfect for my office/desk. The other pine is perfect for the living room. My goal is to keep them alive for Christmas 2016. I do not have a green thumb, so this will be a challenge. I’ve already got my ornaments all picked out, too. Hahaha… Yes, I’m all set for Christmas 2016. 🙂

Bougainvillea, my favorite flower


Two weeks ago, I made the decision to buy my favorite flower, Bougainvillea. I don’t know what it is that made me so drawn into Bougainvillea. Is it the overall presentation? The way how it can climb up windows and walls? The way how it can caresses anything and make it so beautifully? I think its all of the above. 🙂

Bougainvillea is an outdoor plant and they love warm weather. As you all know, Minnesota’s weather is cray cray! LOL. I thought that maybe my sun room will somehow magically help this plan survive… but it didn’t last long 🙁 Maybe I didn’t cater to it enough? I’m hoping to somehow retrieve my Bougainvillea plant back to live. I miss its green leaves and pretty hot pink colors.

Keeping myself busy.


After much consideration, I’ve decided that I am going to start blogging again! I’m not a fan of writing, but I do enjoy sharing! Especially when my thoughts are deep and meaningful. Or just crap that people can relate to 😛

I’m not sure exactly where I am going with this blog. I guess you can say, its a “personal blog.” 🙂 My photography blog, Just A Birdy, is in the work as well… so stay tune!!

xoxo Mil
