I love snow. A lot of people around here don't like it, probably because it's dangerous driving with it and because it's a lot of work to shovel...I still like it.
This winter has been one of the weirdest, we had beautiful days with temperatures like the ones we have during spring and even beginning of summer! no snow for a big while....but in a matter of days, literally days, the temperatures quickly went down and we finally got some good amount of snow this week. I kinda like it, but we have to be very careful driving around town.
Ok, so I don't really have "interesting facts" about me, but so you get to know me better I though I'd shared some stuff about me:
My birthday is on St.Valentine's day and I love it! I love that we get to celebrate love because that's the whole point of being alive and because that's the reason I was born.
I am originally from Mexico but moved to the US when I was 15 to go to a boarding high school in TX. My parents didn't really wanted me to go but they respected my wish and wanted the best for me and I really wanted to go. I really wanted to learn to speak English and learn the american culture. After that, I went to college here in the US too and now I am married and living here (IA) but someday we want to move back to Mexico again.
I seriously love being a designer. I am so grateful to God for giving me this wonderful gift. Although being an artist comes with it's own expenses (like not being able to sleep during nights of inspiration, having to expose your work to the world and risk being critiqued, being misunderstood -sometimes even my husband- and not being able to ever stop being an artist) I would not change it for anything.
I've been a pretty healthy girl most of my life, never had a surgery, never a broken bone, never had to be hospitalized, never nothing, until 2010 when I found out I have lupus. So I've tried to make changes on my diet to stay well, although lupus is something I'll probably have to live with all my life.
I don't have a favorite color, how could I? I think they can all be beautiful, or not, depending on how they are used.
Hello There! Today I have a gift for you: the first free printable on the falala blog! I've been working on this weekly planner that I will be using for 2012. I know! I am extra late on this, it's already mid-January. Where did time go? Seriously. But there's still 350 days left of this year, so, it's not too late yet! I am posting January-March for now, and I'll be posting the rest (April-December) for download sometime next week.
New year, new beginnings, new goals, new adventures.
One of my resolutions this year: Start a blog. So I have told myself Just Start. I know having a blog takes time and effort but I also think it will be a lot of fun. I love the idea of having a place to share stories, pictures, ideas, inspiration and maybe some frustrations too. I think it will be nice to look back at it in the future and remember hopefully good memories that I'll share here. I also have big big projects for this blog and my website (which is under construction at the moment), but I will talk more about that in the future..for now how 'bout I share more the rest of my resolutions for 2012?
Spend more time with God. Pretty self-explanatory. Start a blog. Doing it now! finally! Work hard. I think I already do this (or try to) but sometimes I just feel like I need to do it more if I want to reach my dreams and goals. Give more, expect less. Love this quote. I think I should remind myself more often that I should be more giving. Give more of my time to help others, more of my resources to those who need it and to live a simple life. Definitely one of my resolutions in life. Try new recipes. I like cooking, but sometimes I get so busy with life that I forget how much I like it, so this year I want to try new healthier recipes that also taste really good. Juice often. Last year I tried juicing after watching the documentary "Fat Sick and Nearly Dead" and I loved it. So will definitely be doing it often this year. Study the Bible. I am amazed by the Bible and love theology, so I want to study it more often. Be more creative. I love making things but I also have a full time job that takes most of time...so sometimes it's hard to just make stuff. I hope to do more in my free time this year. Make lots of pretty printables. My goal is to share those right here in the future, so stay tuned! Work out. I need to do this! I am so not good at making exercise a habit..so I hope for this year to be the one! Love more. All you need is love! Practice Guitar. no comments. Watch less t.v. So I can accomplish all of my other resolutions. Fix up my office. We moved to this house on October of 2011 and I haven't fixed my office. Got to do it soon! Work on my website. Still under construction...just need to work on it.
Ok they are 15 but some of them could be in the same category.
Thanks for reading! I didn't think my first post would be this long...but I guess it's a good start :)
