About Me......

Once again, welcome!

I am a thirty-something year old Cuban girl from fabulous Miami!! Woo hoo!! Yes I live in paradise, but like most curly-haired girls wishing they had straight hair and vice-versa, sometimes I wish we had a winter season. I've made mistakes, lost it all and am starting over a new life. That's why this blog is titled "Second Chances Girl" Life has offered me many second chances in the past two years, second chance to be a great mom to my son, second chance at love, second chance at freedom (more about that another time), second chance at being the true me. I have three siblings whom I adore and which you will read alot about, a grown-up niece and nephew that drive me insane and uber-controlling parents that still haven't accepted the fact that I am an adult. Now that I think about it, we could probably entertain people with our own reality show. Kidding aside, I have the most amazing family that have stuck with me through thick and thin. Nobody will ever love me like they do.

My second chance at love is the most amazing guy I have ever met, JC. He is so handsome, patient, smart, funny and kind. We live together, work together and  are trying to establish a "normal-ish" family for my son and his two kids. We've been together for a little over a year and our little family is definitely a work in progress. But I guess, that's how most families are. We are OBSESSED with DIY, him being an architect and all makes it sooooo much easier. We rent our home, but daydream about this amazing fixer-upper we will one day purchase and transform into our own sanctuary. One day..........

Back to me......I wish I were a stay-at-home mom, but sadly have to work (Miami is a very expensive city to live in ), so I live vicariously through all the stay-at-home mom blogs I read. I'm constantly on Pinterest gathering ideas for parties, cooking and my dream home. Feel free to follow me. Love me some Martha Stewart, in my dream world, she is my mother, not that my  mother isn't awesome, she's just not Martha.

Then to my other obsession, my son, AAA. He is six years old and awesome. He is opinionated, funny, stubborn but adorable. My sisters are completely enamored with him and think he is perfect. As my son, I know all his flaws and adore him anyways, unconditional love, right? He is a pretty amazing kid.

That's enough for now........stay tuned for all the craziness!

me and JC........isn't he gorgeous?
