My semi anti-Valentines Day post

Today I couldn’t help but to be annoyed by overwhelming Valentine’s Day social media posts, balloons and the impromptu flower shops outside grocery stores. I had to ask myself why? Do I really hate it this much? I don’t think I do but I dislike the idea that as human beings we are programmed to … Continue reading My semi anti-Valentines Day post

The power of hugs and kisses from a tiny human

Earlier this week I felt something I don’t remember ever feeling before—the pure innocence of love. I was seating on the floor with Gael like we usually do when we get home from work. He was playing on his corner and I was seating there just watching him when out of nowhere he turns, sees me … Continue reading The power of hugs and kisses from a tiny human

Texas Posadas: Making new traditions with my little man

#naphopomo 2013, Day 2: Paying attention

It is amazing what happens when we begin to pay attention. My eyes and mind were much more aware of the surroundings today because I knew I needed a photo for this post. Both were more open. I noticed the shift when I walked out the door with my camera (and baby) on hands just … Continue reading #naphopomo 2013, Day 2: Paying attention

Ese ‘no sé qué

¿Y cuándo llegará? Ese ser, Esa alma Ese momento mágico Cuando todo cambia Cuando simples miradas son más que suficiente Cuando por un beso darías todo Tu bella presencia Tu tiempo tan preciado Y hasta tu corazón tal vez   El tiempo pasa Y sin querer quieres que pase, Esa sensación Tan confusa y placentera … Continue reading Ese ‘no sé qué
