You can tell from these photos that I haven't had proper sleep (Bad skin: check! Bad hair: check! Overgrown beard: check!) and on this rather lazy and windy Monday, we're doing an e-session with Puy Talde of Really Awesome Weddings (RAW) and Lei & Joannie of Daniel Lei Studio (DLS) at The Mango Farm. During the break in the shoot, Jo invited me to do a shoot and I had the brilliant idea (naks!) of bringing this pretty 90-year-old chair to a grassy area (yep, nagbuhat ako ng sariling bangko!) and what do you know? My dog, Turnip, came running to join us!
A little backgrounder: I bought this dog after attending Mass at the Baclaran church. This was when I was still living in Las Piñas. He was so cute that I didn't have second thoughts of getting him. My Mom christened him Turnip because of his color. He's been with me since 2004. He can be haughty at times (yep, he gives you THE look), but he's really, really sweet.
Thanks, Jo, for this! You have no idea how much I appreciate this. It's been a really busy month for me (tons of costings & emails & work and all that jazz), and I'm just really glad to sit down and relax and play with my dog even if it was just for a few minutes. Looking at these photos make me miss the old days! (Whatever that means!). All together now: Awwww... :-)
