Friendsgiving 2019

Every year, we try our best to have a Friendsgiving dinner; to disconnect from stress, celebrate our friendship and remind ourselves of how lucky we are to have each other. You see- many people have acquaintances, but only a few can say they have a real group of friends, who they can always count with, and be their authentic selves no matter the situation. Nats and I have been extremely lucky to have not only each other, but also an amazing group of friends- who find time to check on us in the midst of busy schedules, who never let us dwell on our failures, and instead challenge us to grow from them. These friends stay constant through every...

About Letting Go…

If you had asked me a few years ago if I was happy, I would have probably said “absolutely!”… I have an amazing family, amazing friends a great career- what else could I need to be happy? I pretty much had my life and future figured out and under control, so why would I not be happy? It wasn’t until I removed an important piece of my life puzzle, that I started to realize that I needed to start creating happiness and peace of mind overall from the inside and not only based on the external factors. I was holding on to so many unnecessary emotions, and these were putting a hard break into my path of becoming a better...

Millennial Moms: Luisa F. Alzate

I decided to close the Millenial moms series with one of my great friends, Luisa. I met Luisa when I was in high school through my cousin and throughout the years, she has become family. I can say she is one of the most dedicated people I know, and everything she puts her mind to she achieves. I remember when she decided to become a nurse, there was no one who could interrupt her study sessions, but somehow, she managed to still make time for her friends. Our friendship continued even when she decided to move to New York and start from zero with the love of her life. I know there were a lot of struggles, especially when she...

Millennial Moms: Andrea Gallego-Patrick

Andrea is family! She is a beautiful person inside and out, and I automatically thought of her when we decided to do the millennial moms series this year. She's very hardworking, one of the sweetest people I know and an excellent mother! Not only does she care for her son and her husband, but the whole entire family. Even though we don't live nearby and don't get to see each other as often as I would like, we always keep in touch and make sure we are all OK. Isn't that what family is all about? Making sure we always protect each other and that we are all doing good? That's why I chose Andrea for this year's Mom Series...

Working From Home 101

When I mention that I have the freedom to work from home to someone, they always seem to think I’m super lucky, they believe that working from home is waking up when you want, brewing some coffee, turning on your laptop, and lying in bed, clicking and writing for a few hours until you need a stretch. But is this the reality of working from home? No #facts As usual, the grass is always greener on the other side, and working from home is not as easy as it sounds. I still have to meet deadlines and expectations, and I think my level of responsibility has even increased since I have started working from home. I know that I must be...

Magnolia

This trip has definitely been on the top of my destinations list for a while! I love Chip and Joanna not only for their amazing work but for what they represent as a family! My family and I have been watching their show for as long as I can remember, so when I saw that they bought the Silos and then the diner I knew I had to put it in my travel bucket list. My husband and I like to give each other traditional gifts for our anniversaries, and for our 3rd anniversary, he gifted me a tote bag with leather handles from Joanna’s Magnolia Collection at Target. Just in case you didn’t know, the traditional 3rd-anniversary gift is...

My Go-to Inspirational Talks from Empowered Women

In Honor of International Women's Day, I’ve decided to share my top favorite talks given by empowered women. These speeches are all different, but they all have one thing in  common; They are given by inspiring women who have had to speak louder to get their voices heard. Throughout the years these talks have helped me to lift my spirit when I have needed it the most ( personally and professionally) and have inspired me to move forward in despite of challenges. Each of these women somehow are making a change in the world. Their acts have become motivation, their deeds have become an inspiration and their eloquent speeches have become words of encouragement for so many other women. I hope...

London Calling!

London has always been on my To-Do List, so I was super excited when my husband and I decided to go! We went in late October and it was extremely cold, so I would recommend going in September when Kat went unless you really really like the cold weather LOL! We had a blast during the trip, even though it was during the time that my all day “morning sickness” started #FoundOutRightBeforeTheTrip LOL. One thing to keep in mind that we discovered in London is that because they do daylight savings as well, we had to get up really early to sight-see because it would get dark by 4:00 – 4:30 PM because of the time change. London is also...

Our First Year of Blogging!

Today, marks one year since we launched our blog! Apparently, most bloggers quit before they get to the year point so it’s a big deal to celebrate your one year blogging anniversary! Hoy cumplimos un año desde que lanzamos nuestro blog! Aparentemente, la mayoría de blogueros renuncian a escribir antes de llegar al año, así que para nosotras es una gran meta poder celebrar nuestro primer aniversario! When Nats and I started talking about creating something together (years and years ago), we used to see it as a wishful thought, but then life pushed us to get ourselves out of our comfort zone and start with something! It didn't matter we weren't fully ready, or that we knew nothing about blogging- the...

New Year’s Resolutions

It has been more than a decade since I started writing my resolutions before the new year, and I have saved every list ever since, so I thought I could share a little bit of my process when doing this and get you ready for 2019!  It’s crazy to see how every year my resolutions evolve, and also to see how the material things take a back-seat o my list with every year that passes by. The most inspiring thing for me is to open my resolutions from the year before and discover what I was able to accomplish and what still needs to be done. Here are some of the things that i do when working on my New Year...
