Time to Grow: #WeAllGrow Summit

#WeAllGrow Summit, by Latina Bloggers Connect

Amigas, I really should have shared this here last week, but that’s how crazy this vida has been the last few days with a move to a new house to the other side of the city (which is like moving to another planet), no power for three days, no wifi for four, and the regular […]

How We Glow at Mom 2.0 Summit and Iris Awards

I love the word “glow.” And its definition per Merriam-Webster of “warmth or feeling of emotion” perfectly describes the sensations you experience at a Mom 2.0 Summit.

#ThrowbackThursday — Tulum

That was me only eight years ago, but it seems so far away. Tulum, in the Mexican Riviera Maya, is my favorite place of the Madre Tierra I know. It’s my sacred place. It’s the place I think about and get a sudden and sharp pain in my gut de la añoranza de querer estar […]
