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!!!

Happy Sunday....

Though the weekend is over, and according to the calendar, summer is coming to an end soon (but not here), with temperatures still in the mid 90's and high humidity - I am always reminded of no matter the temperature and the humidity, there is so much to be grateful for living in the Sunshine State.  Last evening, as with every Saturday, my husband and I had our date night.  We went to the International Plaza in Tampa for shopping (yes, I actually bought a pair of Ugg's Caspia boots).   Yeah, I know with temperatures in the mid 90's what was I thinking...well, I love them, they are so soft inside it's like waking on a cloud.  They are super cute on, and believe it or not, I got the last pair, only one left in a different size, so I'm not the only one out there thinking and hoping for a super cold winter here.

After shopping for a few hours we drove over to the Sunshine Skyway Bridge for a little photography, it started to sprinkle a little as we arrived, but stopped as soon as we pulled over to watch the sunset.  Wished it was a little earlier so the water would have been more blue but it was getting dark   But the sunset was spectacular...after watching the sun go down we left for one of my favorite Southwest Restaurants called Red Mesa...ohhhh, so good.  If you live in this area, and haven't tried it, you really should, the food is fabulous and never disappointing over the many years we've been going there.  My husband is out playing golf, all three of the fur babies have been bathed and groomed and are sound to sleep like little babies, and I about ready to start making the Taquitos and Spanish noodles for dinner.  I must say, it's been a very nice, relaxing weekend - ready for the week ahead.  Hope everyone had a great weekend as well and the week ahead is a wonderful one.  Hope you enjoy the pictures.
