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!!!

Valentine's Day Gift Ideas...

What a girl wants….we all have those secret wishes of things we would love to have for Valentine’s Day. Here are just a few ideas that I came across, and I must admit, I would love each and everyone, though I already have the Flip Video. I purchased two for me, and one for my daughter. I keep one with me at all times in my handbag, and the other is packed with my SLR Digital Camera. I am totally amazed at how easy they are to use, and the video is clear, crisp and the colors are true and vivid. I just love mine.  And highly recommend it to anyone who doesn't have one yet.  Though I just have a black/silver and a white/silver one, you can design any cover you want or choose one of theirs.

I actually am looking forward to a quiet evening with my husband, have a nice dinner at Roy's Hawaiian Fusion Restaurant and maybe a cocktail (or two) and just talk.  Oh, and of course my favorite, chocolate covered strawberries. That is when I am the happiest, just relaxing with him and talking about our past, and our dreams. Hope everyone gets just what they want and it is a special day for you.
