Cuba is a country I have wanted to visit all my life. My great-grandparents immigrated here from Cuba, and I always loved surprising people with my Cuban ties and heritage despite my pale-skinned-freckled-face. Over the years, I’ve heard bits and pieces of my Cuban heritage and family and was always fascinated by spunky, resilient, and […]

  Video by The Film Poets  Today is our 4th Wedding Anniversary and do you know how I was woken up this morning? I was woken up by my husband playing our wedding video through our bluetooth speakers.

Happy 4th! This is one of my favorite holidays of the year!!Ā I love the cheer that comes with celebrating our country, spending time carefree with friends and family, all things red white and blue and the delicious southern BBQ that is typically consumed.

I had the pleasure of hearing Anne LamottĀ speak last night. There is something about someone humbling themselves and opening up themselves to a room a strangers that idolize her that really makes you hear truth spoken. Instead of going on and on about my love for Annie, I will share her words that hit me […]

Life is really funny sometimes. My job is really odd. I jump from one moment to the next documenting pieces of time. On a good day, I remind myself to be present and aware. Today, I was rushed and hurried and, per usual, tried to fit too much into one day. While running from commitment […]
