Quality Time

5 Oct

TGIF Jewels,

As mentioned in yesterday’s post that I flew to California to spend time with my family. Other then my lovely sister Carolina I also have an older sister Iliana, and our mom of course and this is exactly what I have been doing since I arrived here spending good old quality time with both.


I went shopping with mom yesterday and she had to buy a new jar of pickles and pack of cookies because I have been munching on them since I have arrived, and she says to me “mi hija (Spanish for: my daughter) you have not changed, I often remember you as a child standing in the kitchen with a pickle in one hand and a cookie in the other munching away on both.” And til this day I love both!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend ahead of you, as you all already know what I have been doing and will be doing, spending good old quality time with all my family. I can’t think of any better way to enjoy the weekend.

Until next time,
Monica

Endless Summer

21 Sep

TJIF Jewels,

It is official today is the last day of summer. Although I always wish for endless summers with longer days I am looking forward to the fall. Fall in Michigan is my favorite time of year because of all the vibrant colors, everything about it is so much cozier, the fashion, the food, etc… I will be doing the essentials, visiting an apple orchard enjoying apple cider, and cinnamon donuts, going up north for beautiful scenic routes where the leaves take on the full fall effect of changing colors!

Looking back at this blog I am blessed to have so many memories. I have no idea why we didn’t start blogging before although it was always in the back of my mind. I feel much closer to my sister now, and if that is the purpose of this blog, I am absolutely content with it. Living in different states does not allow to see what she is up to on a day-to-day basis, her posts always bring a smile to my face. I feel truly blessed to have her as a sister, and to have all these memories to look back to, but one in particular stands out.

The man behind a lot of the work: My husband. Here he is chasing our dog Mocha while she is barking at the waves and chasing after them. For a change my husband is chasing after her, it is always the other way around, she follows him around like true puppy love. I have a lot to learn from this wise dog, she turned eleven this summer. She loves my husband unconditionally which is not always the case for me. I promised my husband that I would not reveal is identity for professional reasons which is why you may only see glimpses of him in photos through out the blog. To be honest I am enjoying the mystery behind it all. Although most of time I think I should start a blog about Mocha and him, they are a lot more interesting to watch. The way those two interact is priceless a lot of time. We laugh about it, and have come with a name: “Taco and Pancho” Mocha is Taco because she is long, and although my husband is nowhere near being Latin he certainly can pass for one.

I hope I didn’t bore you too much with my story and that you all enjoy this beautiful last day of summer.

With love,
Monica
