THIS IS MY 1000TH POST!
Hard to believe I know, but definitely something to celebrate!
It seems so long since I started this Instagram journey, so i thought it would be a good idea to introduce myself. Thank you all for following along, here’s a few things about me you might not already know.
I am a mom of 3 boys who always keep me on my toes. With their constant activities, I find myself in the car quite a bit, but I wouldn’t change that for the world.
I am a proud Puerto Rican, and I love sharing our culture, language, and traditions with my children. A few months ago I traveled with my father and oldest son to the island and had the most amazing experience. It had been over 20 years since my dad’s last visit, and to see him reminiscing with his cousins was a beautiful thing. The fact that my son was there to witness it all was icing on the cake.
I was born and raised in Arizona, went to university there, and have two degrees, one in Spanish and one in Elementary Education. After college I met my husband (he’s a lawyer from Oklahoma) and as soon as we married we moved to San Diego to escape the heat. That was 20 years ago.
Our honeymoon was 14 cities in 23 days (yes, we were ambitious), and we haven’t stopped traveling since. Our youngest was 9 months old when we took him to England, Scotland, and Wales. To date we’ve visited around 32 countries (but who’s counting?). If you’re still reading this, thank you! These are my final thoughts: I love to read (historical fiction is my jam), I’m a life long tennis player (but I’m having shoulder surgery this week so that’s off the table for awhile), I’m addicted to genealogy research, and I love talking travel! So please, tell me about you, and drop me a line, I’ll be here for awhile!
Oh, and I need to be better about getting out from behind the camera! Thanks to @luxerecess for capturing this awesome image of me in Ireland!
