My B&B (baby and bestie)

Most certainly you know who Mariana is. No, I am not talking about myself in third person but I’m talking about my best friend: Mariana. We have known each other since we were 16 years old but we didn’t become friends until we went away to study a semester in Montpellier when we were 18 […]

Welcome to the world Rafaela

We became parents on the 25th of January. I can’t believe it has been almost 8 weeks but I have finally gotten around to writing about Rafaela. Her arrival into this world wasn’t as I had planned.

Our short trip to Todos Santos, Baja California Sur.

One of the first things that I wanted Edward to know about Mexico was how diverse and large it is. I kept telling him about Mexican geography and how the biggest Mexican state is larger than Spain. I explained to him that even though he met me as a suburban chilanga – or Sateluca, the slang word for people […]

Let’s build a wall of art.

Despite the political undertones in the title of this blog post, I must confess that I am one who prefers to spend her leisure time scrolling down Pinterest than reading articles shared on Facebook regarding the impending doom we currently find ourselves in. Pinterest seems like a safe heaven for me. I have spent more […]
