OWOH Winner!!!

Well, here we are, ending this wonderful event and announcing the lucky winner who will receive my "beachy" prize. Before I get into that, I would like to thank Lisa from for organizing this fantastic event, 5 years in a row.
At the beginning I was sad thinking next year there would be no more blog mingling, however, if you visit Lisa's blog you can learn all about her plans for next year - yeah!!!
I enjoyed visiting blogs and receiving almost 100 visitors :) who left very sweet comments. One of them is my winner, I've already emailed her to inform her she's won my giveaway; her name is Deb and she has a blog called: CONGRATULATIONS!!!
I will continue visiting blogs and getting to know as many of the participants as I can, it's been a very enjoyable event.
Have a fantastic weekend and thank you for stopping by ~

The Gallery: 24 hrs.

As per this week's theme at The Gallery, here is a quick summary of a regular weekday for my Princess and I:

A quick but healthy breakfast in the car on the way to school/work

My Princess, her tutor and classmates at the Library while I teach
A ballet class twice a week
Late-in-the-day silliness

Dreaming with angels after such long day!

What' s on your workdesk wednesday?

Today is my very first time participating in this fun meme, here is my desk:

Currently my workspace is a mess - but that's exactly how we create, isn't? There are scissors, a glue stick, papers, cardstock, glitter glue, paper punches, etc., the makings of Valentine's cards :)
I'm enjoying the messy workdesk, because it means I've managed to find the time to create - that makes my day!!!
I wish you a very creative and crafty week!  ~

That's my World Tuesday!

It's been ages (what's new?!) since I participated in this meme and I'm thrilled to be back :) Here is my entry for today, a beautiful view of the sea, sky and one of the many sculptures that dot the boardwalk downtown Puerto Vallarta.
We are having a fantastic "winter" with cooler than normal temperatures and amazing sunsets - like this one.
If you would like to see other entries or participate please visit Have a great rest of the week!

Sunday Scribblings # 253 - Story

One of the prompts this week - and the one I am using tonight - is: What is your story. Good grief! Why is it so hard to talk about myself at times?

My story... my story is that I never dreamed I would be where I am right now, and it is a good and a bad thing at the same time - contradictions!

For the longest time I thought I was going to be married by a certain age, have two kids by another age, etc. When I saw that it was not happening my story changed and I saw myself happy with a partner, loving my job, seeing the world, having a great life...

One thing is for certain, I never wanted to be a single mom, a struggling single mother of one beautiful Princess... but I am, and I love being a mom to my sweet girl, and that is the part that is good... that is the part that I would never change.

How did I get here? I don't know... All I know is that now that I have her I don't have the money, the time, the energy... the partner... she deserves and I so badly wish I could give her...

I try, I do my best and I guess that is all I can do, but of course I want to give her more... that is my current struggle, that is my story: It is bad that I am lacking so many things I used to have, it is good that she is in my life :)

Faith is what sustains me, all I can do now is keep on praying for more balance in all aspects of our lives... she does not know what I had before but I do...

For the time being I try to focus on what we do have: our time together, health, laughter, love, family and friends... as for the rest, I try to take one day at a time and hope and pray for better days :)

Skywatch Friday

A beautiful sunset in Puerto Vallarta - seen from the boardwalk.

Friday Five - Too Much Not Enough!

TGIF!!! And to celebrate the beginning of a long holiday weekend (here in Mexico) here is my take on this week's meme:

1.Who’s not as funny as he or she thinks? The neighbor who must whistle at all times, as loud as he can, regardless of what time it is.

2.What’s not as big a deal as everyone else seems to think? Having the latest gadget/phone/game.

3.What’s something people aren’t concerned enough about? Education, I think is a big issue.

4.What’s something in the grocery store that’s underrated? Tea! :)

5.What do you pay too much attention to? My busy life, if I cannot change things I should just relax and take one day at a time - easier said than done!
Have a fantastic weekend and do something fun ~

The Gallery: Shapes

I have not participated in this weekly meme in ages, but here I am today. I love taking photos of the sky, the colors and shapes of the clouds always mesmerize me! I wish I could be a painter, but since I am not I console myself taking TONS of photos :) Here is what I am sharing today:
