- Desert Dreaming
- 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!!!

Everyone needs a little help from time to time!!! Though I have not been on my Blog Site for quite sometime, I just wanted to take a few moments and thank all of you so much for all your prayers and kind words through what has been one of the roughest times I have ever experienced. Just to fill you in on a little bit of what has been going on. The Grand Jury met on my brother's case a week ago last Thursday, though they decided whether or not to indict the person who murdered my baby brother, we will not know that decision for possibly another 2 weeks, though we are hoping it will be sooner. And, though the Grand Jury is over, I am still not permitted to speak of it, but according to my sister-in-law, all evidence she and I discovered, and the investigators, it was NOT self-defense as we knew it was not. My brother just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. Just an innocient man on his way home. My heart is still broken, and I miss him more and more each day...we pray justice will be served. All the prayers that we have been receiving from family, friend, and perfect strangers has totally given us the strength to continue each day to fight for this justice.
I received a new position, one that I love and and surrounded by wonderful people. It has helped me so much with the healing process, along with my grief counselor. My wonderful husband and precious daughter have been my rock, their support has been unwaivering. We've tried to stay extremely busy, working on our home, continuing our date nights, and enjoying each and every day God has blessed us with. It just feels so good to get back to the things I really loved, and this Blog is one of them.
Again, thank you all for your prayers, I have really missed reading all your wondering and inspiring Blogs...though I only have a few followers, those that are, you mean so much to me, as I though we have never met, your words of good wishes, prayers and just being who you are, make me feel as though I know each of you.
I have a lot of catching up to do with reading all your past posts...better get busy...
