Simply trying…

Trying to get back into the groove of daily writing being a new mom is proving to be a little difficult. Some days, it feels like my mornings are my nights and my nights are my mornings. Can someone please tell my son there is a difference! No wonder, the first advice given to me by everyone was, “SLEEP WHEN HE SLEEPS.” Oh believe me, It’s easier said then done but I try my best.  It’s only been 8 weeks since I gave birth so I am still adjusting to all the changes. It’s definitely not easy but well worth it.

It’s this moment…

Simply trying…Until next time.

What’s new with me…

Where do I begin? It’s been so long since my last login that it took several tries before I could actually log in. (Yikes)  I swear, I have a million and one thoughts running through my head.  It’s a mad house. LOL

What’s new with me? Well… I have the best news to share.  I became a MOTHER.

I can’t explain how scary, wonderful, and amazing this feeling is — I’m a mom. There are no words and if you’re a mother, you know exactly what I mean. Despite it all, (sleepless nights, dirty diapers, feeding schedule etc…) I wouldn’t change it for the world and I would go through my pregnancy all over again. I am so happy and in love with my son.

I gave birth to a beautiful and handsome baby boy on January 9th 2014.  His name is Jace Y. Hernandez.  Isn’t he just adorable.  He is mine, all mine. 😉

JaceHe is now almost two months old, time is flying by (father time, please slow down) I don’t want too miss a single second.  Here is my little big guy now, so handsome.

photo-6It’s amazing how much he changes by the day but he definitely has my eyes. Baby looks like mommy but shhh don’t tell his daddy. 😉  It’s still an ongoing debate. JAJA

To my mother, YOU WERE RIGHT! It’s an amazing, incredible, and indescribable feeling and now I know. Thank you for being my support.  I love you very much.

Looking forward to a new journey and adventure with my son.  Let’s Go!

Until next time.. Ciao

Doubt

I’ve learned that when something is eating me up inside that I have to face the issue head on. It’s not always the easiest questions to ask but I rather ask then stay with doubt. Doubt ruins everything…wouldn’t you agree?

There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.

Today, I asked a dear friend some tough questions, I just needed to look into his eyes and get his reaction. It wasn’t easy, to be honest. I didn’t think about the consequences of knowing the truth. I didn’t care. I just needed to know even if that meant having my heart-broken. I rather be hurt by the truth than comforted by a lie because the truth hurts only once but a lie every time you remember it.

There is no room in my garden of orchids, for seeds of doubt.

A simple letter…

My dearest,bluebird_with_love_letter_postcard-p239946598323051948en8sh_325

I don’t know why it’s so hard to talk to you.  I don’t know why I fear your thoughts.  I don’t know why I get a knot in my throat when you ask about my feelings. I don’t know why you make me question everything. I don’t know why you make me happy, sad, and angry – sometimes all at once.  I don’t know why you love me.  I don’t know why I love you.  I don’t know if you’re a blessing or a lesson.  What I do know is that I wouldn’t change you for the world.

I belong with you, you belong with me
You’re my sweetheart
I belong with you, you belong with me
You’re my sweetheart

With love always,

Peace & Love xox

Happy New Year!

It’s the year 2013 – quite amazing if you ask me.  It’s a new year and a fresh start to do it all over again… Wishing everyone a wonderful year full of love, happiness, health, and prosperity.  May you have new hopes and promises and may all your wishes come true.  Never forget you have the power to choose how your story will begin and end. Don’t be afraid to rock the boat! Be happy, laugh out loud, scream, and eat jelly beans.  It doesn’t matter what you do, just smile and always remember that things happen for the best.

Can Love Conquer All?

I still want to believe that with love everything is possible but is it realistic thinking? I’ve heard too many sad love stories lately and it just got me thinking.  Is everything bearable with love?  I use the word bearable because it seems like these days it’s getting harder for people to stay together.  What about love, doesn’t Love conquer it all?  When it comes to matters of the heart, I guess anything is possible.

Perhaps I’m a hopeless romantic.  I’m 36 years old (believe it), my parents are still married, and I’ve been with my husband almost 19 years so when I hear people’s stories about their failed marriages/relationships, it saddens me.  Every relationship, every marriage, is different but I do believe when you truly love your partner you can learn to look past the flaws, imperfections, and perhaps some mistakes. Right!?  You have to look at yourself in the mirror and ask, “Are you perfect?” Sorry to burst your bubble, but no one is…  Plain and simple.

I believe to have a strong relationship you must allow each other to grow as individuals because sacrificing all your individual needs doesn’t strengthen a relationship. Allow your partner time for themselves… (don’t live in fear) The same way people change, love changes — everything changes.  “Like running water, changing love finds its way past obstacles.  Freezing it in place makes it fragile, rigid, and all too likely to shatter.” (read that statement again…)

Another thing, don’t use manipulation to control your partners feelings and actions.  Learn the skill of communication — speak the truth and nothing but the truth.  You don’t need to be afraid to communicate your real feelings, needs, and desires.  Be yourself and even if you don’t get the reaction you want, then so be it.  If you have to force it then it’s not real love.  Do you really want someone who hangs on your every word and only does what you want? Seriously?  It’s a lonely and miserable road ahead if you answered yes to that question.  Think about it…

At the end of the day, I’ve learned that it’s up too you and only you to decide whether your love is strong enough to withstand any obstacles.  People change, feelings change — that’s life.  Sometimes the words for better or worse no longer mean anything.

I’ll leave you with this quote:

To keep the fire burning brightly there’s one easy rule:  Keep the two logs together, near enough to keep each other warm and far enough apart – about a finger’s breadth – for breathing room.  Good fire, good marriage, same rule.

Do you think LOVE can conquer all?

Where to begin…

Where to begin…

Long talks, silly names, dots, tb, sleepless nights, inside jokes, mmhmm.  There is nothing like having a special connection with someone.  The feeling to love and be loved in return can’t be explained.

It started with a whisper.

I turned around and met his eyes.

Days went by and we met again.

Now, years later. We remember.

We reminisce and laugh.

These are our stolen moments.

Too us and many more years….

Stolen Moments

It started with a simple hello.

Their eyes met.

A glance.

A smile.

A kiss.

These are their stolen moments. In a perfect world they would be together but right now they only have moments…

Moments of happiness…

Moments of passion…

All these moments are stolen from another… they don’t care because when they’re together the world stops as if no one else existed.

Their hearts beat as one.

As they look into each others eyes, they can’t help but wonder about the possibilities of another life.

They are happy and sad.

Saying good-bye is never easy.

One more hug.

One more kiss.

I don’t want to let go, please don’t leave.

I miss you already he says as he stares into her eyes.

I miss you more.

Stolen moments in time.

Peace & Love xox

No luck with men…

I was having a random conversation with a friend today when he mentioned that one of his friends has no luck with men.  No luck with men?  Meaning what? I could not help but ask, I was definitely curious.  He just didn’t understand why she was always complaining and looking for faults in men.  No one was ever right or good enough for her.  The reasons she gave him were absurd.  I could not help but laugh because it wasn’t my first time hearing these ridiculous comments. 

  • His nose is too big.
  • He talks too much.
  • His teeth are ugly.
  • He is too nice. (Really?)
  • etc etc etc

Well you get the idea…   Some ladies are not willing to give a man a chance just because he has a defect (in her eyes)?  I know we are only attracted by what we see but sometimes you need to look for the good inside them and learn to look past the big nose.  Give them a chance he may actually be a good guy!  Yes, good guys still exist.

There is nothing wrong with having high standards, just don’t make them so high up that they are impossible to reach.  You can’t expect to find the perfect man when you’re being critical and judgmental because if you haven’t looked in the mirror lately, you are not perfect.  Guess what, no one is.  I know that sounds harsh but it’s the truth.

My dear friend, Please tell your girl to stop being so critical and learn to have some fun.  Give it too her straight. It might be her attitude. She will appreciate it.  🙂

I can’t pretend to know what it feels like to be single and know your pain but just know that when the time is right you too will meet the man of your dreams.  Well, not the man in a fairy tale because they don’t exist but close too it.  Just make sure you’re awake and not let him get away.

What are the craziest stories you’ve heard?
