About Me

My photo
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!!!

35 Years of Marriage....

Last Sunday, was my 35th wedding anniversary to my best friend! I still can't get over the fact that it's been 35 years, I still feel as though I am 17, when I first met him.  We've done so much as a married couple and for that, I give thanks to God each and everyday for allowing me to have such a wonderful man in my life...I wouldn't change a thing.  We've traveled, we've moved to several different states, and have experienced things, that not too many people get to do, but most of all, we have always loved each other, put each other first (well, besides my daughter), and can look back and say,we have been so blessed by God.  First off, we never act our age, and that helps a lot.  Second, we don't care about what other people are doing, we do what makes us happy, and third, but of course not last, we were in love when we met, we were in love when we got married, and love each other more with each passing day - simply, we have fun!!!

Saturday evening we starting the celebration by inviting my daughter and her boyfriend to go to Clearwater Beach with us to watch the sunset and see all the events they have on the weekend.  Then we had a nice dinner on the beach at Frenchy's...been eating there for years, best grouper sandwiches around.  It was a beautiful evening and the breeze coming off the Gulf was wonderful.  Just sitting there with the warm breezes and watching all the people enjoying the beach, couldn't have been more perfect. 

We've have been so buy the last several weeks, for which I will post at a later date, so I haven't been on the computer much...I miss it and seeing what everyone is doing so far this beautiful summer.  Hope everyone is enjoy every special moment, and can't wait to get reading all the newer post and get caught up.   I've attached a few photos from last Saturday evening on Clearwater Beach.

Hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed Sunday...

  6. First off, I wish I knew why whenever I comment, it comes up anonymous, if anyone knows how to fix that, please let me know.

    Now for the important comment, I want to thank each and everyone of you sweet ladies for the beautiful comments. It means more to me than you know, so again, thank you from the bottom of my heart.


  7. Hi again! Thanks so much for what you said today about only children. I know very few people with only children, so it's so nice to get your perspective, and to know your daughter is so wonderful! I can tell just by knowing you through your blog that you are a great, patient, kind and loving parent. It is nice to be able to spoil our only children just a little! :)) I will try to push my worries away. Thanks again!
