The contents inside a woman's handbag will always be a mistery to most men. It's often said that we carry our lives with us, resulting in very heavy purses which we can't wait to put down. Another fact: our handbags are always a mess...how do you expect us to organize our lives in a 14" x 12" space? Still, there's always room to fit a little something extra in there, increasing the time it takes us to dig for our keys even more.
Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there!
The world is a better place because of your love. You are the light that shines bright inside all of us.
I believe, as daughters, we don't truly know or understand the depth and strength of a mother's love until we become mothers ourselves- a lot of times, taking it for granted.
So for now, I can only be grateful that God created a love as infinite and as unconditional as his to keep us safe throughout our lives, guiding and strengthening us to become as great, or even greater than themselves.
Alessa Designs' newest campaign is one that speaks directly to the girl inside each one of us. The girl who knows she's different, free-spirited, strong, indepedent, kind-hearted, unafraid to be whoever she wants to be. She expresses herself, letting her beauty shine through, with confidence and enthusiasm.
Oh, and she loves color- because like the Summer, she's happy, bright, warm and inviting.
Just taking a moment to wish all of you a very happy Valentine's Day! Let today be about love, compassion, affection, friendship and, of course, lot's of passion. Take a moment to show those you cannot live without (friends, family, lovers, employees) just how much they mean to you.
Today is the day to forget about all your troubles, put your pride aside, and open up your heart. Sooner or later, you'll realize just how much a few minutes of love can brighten-up a person's life. So smile, embrace and be a little kinder to those you cross paths with today.
As I mentioned to you before, this year is the year my husband and I will run a marathon. We've both been runners and have run long distances before, however, never, ever have we attempted to run 26.2 miles. That's a whole lot of miles and we know it will be tough but, we're optimistic.
Here we are again, saying good-bye to yet another year. I have to say, 2012 was a good year for me. It was a year of big revelations. I learned so much, achieved so much, that saying I'm thankful is an understatement. Just being able to travel for an entire month, the way my husband and I recently did, is a blessing many probably take for granted...but not me. This trip was a result of a year of hard work, dedication and extensive planning (and saving!). It is solid proof that if you work really, really, hard anything is indeed possible.
This past Monday I had the (huge) honor of being interviewed by the gorgeous (and tall! They had me sitting on a pillow just to be closer to her height!) Jessica Rodriguez for LOOK TV, the television version of LOOK Magazine that airs every Thursday on Guatevision. It was all very unexpected and as always, I was extremely excited to be given yet another opportunity to appear on national television.
I've never been much of a DIY person. It's not that I'm not crafty - I'm actually really good at building/making things - it's just that I don't have the patience to sit and "craft" for a long period of time. Consequently, any "DIY" project I'm involved in needs to be easy, simple and quick. Preferably, the kind that you don't need a sewing machine or any sort of fancy equipment.
