My paternal grandmother, Lucena Ravelo Lacho used to say, "Candy, I'm happy. You know, I just live the simple life..." It's true, if we are happy with what we have, we see the beauty in its simplicity. I miss her so much... I love her so much more.

I'm a simple "Pinay" (Filipino), a student, a SAHM to three, a wife to a great husband, who also practices Feng Shui and loves, loves, loves genealogy, blogging, entertaining and tablescapes. That means, a full household, busting shelves and 5 blogs! Yikes!
It is what's in your heart; both your innermost desires and most intimate feelings. You want and need it. You show and hide it. Life is more fun and fullfilling with it, so close your eyes, taste your "secret candy" and see where life takes you!
Scriptures I live by...
"The glory of God is intelligence; or in other words, light and truth. "(D&C 93:36)
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16, KJV)
