El Morro (Puerto Rico)

Thursday, October 1, 2015

 Last month, I had the opportunity to visit Puerto Rico. Everything about the Island made me feel at home. The food was delicious, the beaches were crystal clear, and the people were filled with joy.

My favorite part about our vacation was visiting El Morro (pictured below). El Morro consists of the remains of what used to be a military base. Great battles between the British, The French and Spaniards took place there. People from all over come to admire it's beauty.

There is so much beauty in history. This place is beautiful for what it used to be, for the battles that it survived, and for what it has become over the years. If you find yourself in Puerto Rico, please do yourself a favor and visit this place!

Transitions: Eva Mendes

Monday, August 24, 2015

This NY and Company dress from the Eva Mendes collection is the perfect summer to fall transition piece. The color, soft fabric, pockets and lady like length make it so flattering. I can't even begin to tell you how many compliments I got on this dress when I wore it over the weekend. If you are looking for fall transition pieces, this little number is a must.

Off The Shoulder

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

There is nothing I love more than pairing two unusual items and having them work out. On a normal day, I would have paired this off the shoulder top with a pencil skirt, but the midi-tulle-skirt-off-the-shoulder combo proved to be feminine and playful.

To my nephew:

Tuesday, April 14, 2015

To my nephew,

I am in the delivery room anxiously waiting to meet you. Your grandmother is here in the delivery room, and your father stepped out to go to the vending machine. Truth is, he's too excited and too nervous to sit still. 

There is something you don't know, and might never fully understand, and that is the extent of our love for you. We prayed for you for five long years, and God has finally granted us the honor of welcoming you to this world. 

You have been blessed with two exceptional parents. Your father is the second best man in the world, the first one is your grandfather (he raised your mother and I). Your father is kind, honest, smart, humble and a man of honor. You are going to learn so much from him! Your mother is loving, caring, strong, wise, diligent, an amazing sister, an amazing daughter, and an amazing wife. I cannot wait to see her play the role of mother.

The photo pictured on this post was taken on our last family trip, the one we took on December 2014, five months before you were born. Your mother and I were sitting on an airplane 36,000 ft above ground. Elizabeth (your aunt), and I were trying to negotiate the seat next to your mother's seat because she is just the type of person you feel safe around. 

My little Adam, when life gets turbulent remember that you have been blessed with the best co-pilots in the world (your mother and father). Remember that we prayed for you for five years. For five long years the world waited for you, and you are finally here. You are more than special. Be kind and courageous, the God who gifted you to this world will protect and watch over you all the days of your life. 

Cannot wait to meet you,

Your Auntie Who Loves You to Pieces
