Thoughts on 2014…

Resolutions and Goals for 2014

I am reforming the way that I look at New Years Resolutions this year and making a list of achievable goals instead.  After all, no one really wants to start something so radical in the new year, only to be disappointed.  Here are my 6 achievable goals for 2014. Here’s my list, based on this […]

#belikefrida Hispanic Heritage Month


This year, at my school, we are celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month in style. Our slogan (catchphrase) for the month, which we are celebrating during all of October, is “Be Like Frida”.  To be honest, at first, the kids had NO CLUE what we were talking about and they just made fun of Frida for being […]

A double perspective on the world…


This past weekend, we were able to celebrate the wedding of my “cousin” with family on my husband’s Cuban side. The entire event was amazing; we were able to spend such good, quality time with people who we don’t always get to see as often as we’d like. Everything was so much fun…babies everywhere, kids […]

Outer Banks Love


We just returned from the beach and I wanted to share my favorite photos. I love the beach so much! I would highly recommend seeing Avon, a little city far down the Outer Banks in North Carolina. Avon is certainly not a bustling metropolis, but the beach is breathtaking!!

Porter’s is tucked away on a side street (Riverside avenue) and is a little hidden gem in the Federal Hill neighborhood of […]

“Cañas y Tapas” Cassoulet (food matters project)


This week’s food matters project recipe calls for a Cassoulet. In Spain, this type of dish is very popular and in towns like Toledo and Madrid the “caldo” (thick stew) made in “cazuelas” (casserole dishes made of terra cotta) is absolutely delicious! I adapted Mark Bittman’s Cassoulet and made it in the style of one […]

Kony 2012…it’s time to do something!

This video about the lives of children soldiers in Uganda, Kony (the leader of the LRA in Uganda) and the drive we should all have to do something to help came out recently and has gone viral immediately.  The reason being, it is very well done and inspires the viewer to take some sort of action. KONY […]
