I live with my husband and daughter in our native Southern California and we are expecting the arrival of a son in late winter/early spring of 2012. I was born to Puerto Rican parents and always sort of feel like I am in between their culture, the American culture and whatever my own culture may be. I want to show my children life through creativity, imagination, simplicity, loving relationships, knowing both of their heritages (my husband is Mexican American) and most importantly, seeing this life through our faith and belief in Christ as our Lord and Savior.
I enjoy collecting old things from times gone by and am a great lover of books, music, vintage things, gardening (or at least trying to!) herbs, tea and of course, owls too. It means a lot to me that my young daughter shares many of the same interests (for now) so I want to take full advantage of that. To show her the world, through books, the outdoors, through experiences great and small. I look forward to having our son as well, to be able to step into childhood once again and now, through the eyes of a boy!
