There's less than a week left before Christmas Day and everything is looking great; everyone has the Christmas spirit, everything is decorated and I bought wrapping paper for my presents.

We're almost halfway into the month of December and I'm really feeling the Christmas spirit. I think this year I feel it more because I'm getting out of my house and going to work every day and I see decorations and hear people talking about it. I even see it in their mood, they're happy, … Continue reading What do you mean I have to wrap the presents?

I'm happy to say that right now I'm writing from the comfort of the living room in my new apartment!

Today I want to take the chance to, once again, thank my mom for always being there for us (my brother and me), through the good and the bad and never, ever letting us down. We disagree sometimes, she gets nervous when I drive, but some people don't even want to get in the car … Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day

So look at what I found today: I think it was just sitting around in that Hobby Lobby waiting for me to find it and of course I had to have it. The only thing better than that was finding another one that said María but that's asking for too much. Finding that just made … Continue reading We are unstoppable
With a broken heart I write to you tonight away from home, from my beloved Puerto Rico. My aunts bought me a ticket to the states and I really didn't feel anything from leaving, it just felt like another trip with my family. It does not feel that way anymore, I can't be more thankful … Continue reading Praying for my Puerto Rico
