The day I got to make a mess with spray paint

Everything was in the backyard when I woke up this morning, all the paint cans and chairs, well all the separated pieces of the chairs. It was all on top of pieces of card board spread across de yard; it was time to paint! I waited patiently as I got instructions on how to paint … Continue reading The day I got to make a mess with spray paint


Something new every weekend, this weekend- Kayaking

What a great weekend! We stayed at an Airbnb which was better than a hotel; it was a huge house at walking distance to the beach. Because it was a beach house, it had 4 one-person kayaks, and at first I was doubting going on one because I didn't know if I would be able … Continue reading Something new every weekend, this weekend- Kayaking

Remembering- Today I celebrate 3 years of getting a second chance

Unstoppable María

Sitting in my room, in front of the fan because it’s so da… hot, listening to Pandora, and writing. I didn’t imagine I would be doing this, three years ago. I had different plans. I knew I would be writing, I just didn’t think I’d be back home. But you can make all the plans you want, but that doesn’t mean they will come true. What you want and what life will give you are two very different things, you just have to be ready to deal with what life throws at you, like it or not.
