Today, I found myself surrounded by over 200 species of palm trees, at Gizella Kopsick Palm Arboretum, St. Petersburg, Florida. Enjoy the pics, and take a trip to stroll through the park if you can! 😊
…but not really.
The year is coming to a close. It’s been real interesting. I became a mother and had an introductory crash course on what life has really been like for my own mother all these years. Motherhood isn’t easy. You miss out on a lot of sleep and self-care. But it’s also very rewarding. The smiles, the cuddles, the coos, the giggles. The fact that when baby is cranky all he wants is mommy. 😇
I have no regrets. I love my baby. Sometimes, I may feel like I can’t get as much done as I would like to. But it doesn’t matter. As long as I take care of the things I need to do in order to care for my little one. He’s the center of my world. And nothing matters more than his well-being, health and happiness. 👩👦
I know where I’m going. I know what I’m looking for. I just need to trust that my decisions will get me there. I need to trust that the steps I take, at any given moment, are leading me closer and closer to my destination. Even if I can’t see the full picture. Even if there are obstacles along the way. I will get there. And I’ll dive in fully. Without regrets.
Working on my throat chakra
Trying to express myself
Finding my voice
Surrounding myself with pure divine light
Elevating onto the clouds
Shifting my perspective and position
So that I can breathe
Flowing like a steady river
On April 14, 2017, I took a quick overnight trip to New Orleans with my mother! We both fell in love with the food, drinks, the architecture, the eccentricity of its tourists and inhabitants. And all that jazz!!!! I definitely need to go back with more time! At least I got to enjoy those Cafe Du Monde beignets–definitely worth a trip to NOLA just for the beignets. Haha! I’m just sorry I didn’t take enough pictures…
January 23rd, 2017: Last full day in Cuba during my first trip to the beautiful country.
It was supposed to be a beach day but plans were changed because it started out as a really windy day. Waves began to crash over el Malecón, flooding the road and streets nearby. Paseo de Martí (also known as Paseo del Prado) became flooded and attracted a crowd that was both curious and delighted. Some people walked through the water, some played in it, and many took pictures from afar. It was definitely a beautiful and interesting sight.
