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!!!

After the Wedding....

Tomorrow will be one week since the wedding, and I am still exhausted.  I wanted to thank those of you who made the sweet comments on my last post, regarding me taking the photographs for my cousin's daughter's wedding...it was beautiful, and I am so grateful that God was by my side, they turned out really much better than I would have given myself credit for.  I was extremely nervous the whole way to the church, once over the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, I knew I only had about 10 minutes until the church, but once I arrived and saw how happy everyone was, I was ready to go!  I took almost a thousand pictures, and only 20 didn't turn out well...I was shocked to say the least.  The ones I have sent to the family already told me just how pleased and happy with them they were, that's all I needed to hear.  Every evening, I've been downloading them on disks for everyone, so they have them right out of the camera, no editing.  And the last several nights, I've been doing my photo editing, with numerous programs.  Some are blended, sepia, color splashed, vintage, black and white, cropped, you name it...this is the part I love.  But...I must say, that will take quite some time to complete, but I am just so happy they asked to me to this for them, and that everything went so well.  Family always comes first and I am blessed that I was able to help this young couple out.  It was one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve been to in quite some time.  It was in black and teal, and the table settings were simple elegance, the music, the food, everything was just magical. 

If our weather here in Florida warms up a little, I may be hitting some beaches this weekend for more photographs, doing this wedding has me in the mood to start shooting more. 

Hope everyone has a wonderful blessed weekend.
