Finally finished all my Christmas decorating over the past weekend. Don't have any idea why it always takes me almost two weeks to finish...my family laughs at me each year. They can't understand why I just don't put everything up and let it go, but no, not me, always changing things until I get it just the way I want it, then I change it again...but I'm done (I think). Here are just a few areas of my home. I've started some of the shopping but our annual trip to Orlando is coming up, and I try to save most of it for there...getting very excited!!! The weather has been so cold here that I am totally in the holiday spirit. Time for the baking to begin this weekend. I look forward to that so much each year with my daughter, she is always coming up with new recipes. Though we bake cookies and other desserts, one of our favorite are homemade mini cupcakes...so yummy! What a wonderful time of year, ready to make new memories!

- I was motivated to start a blog by reading all the wonderful talented individual's who have blogs out there. So, I want to make this blog about everyone who reads it. My family and God always comes first in my life. I want to share my experiences and in turn, hope to get feedback and ideas from you. I love unique things, I adore anything that sparkles (not over the top though) I love decorating, cooking, gardening, photography and shopping. My number one passion is photography! To me it becomes more than a picture, it can become a piece of art, or a beautiful memory. Decorating, though I am not a professional, and don't claim to be, has been a part of my life since I was very young, and just love searching and shopping for new ideas and incorporate the old, such as Mid-Century Modern and Hollywood Regency with contemporary. Living close to the Gulf of Mexico in Florida, and being of Hispanic heritage, I love cooking Mexican food, and love to share my authentic recipes. Though I live in Florida, my heart is in the desert southwest, and hope that my family and I will return there very soon…keep your fingers crossed that my prayers are answered SOON!!!
