Dear Mom, I get it now- our story


Like most love stories, it took us almost a decade to reach our happily ever after, and it has been a very crazy ride! I would be lying if I told you my life is perfect, or that getting here has been easy. I am lucky enough to have married my best friend and our children are so lucky to have such a loving and caring father. 

Meet my husband  Jose Rafael Torres, my best friend, soul mate, and the love of my life, my biggest supporter and the founder who brought my dream to bring my site to life, without him and his hard work this wouldn’t be possible.

They say opposites attract and they weren’t lying, we have very few things in common. We have character traits which are not traditionally compatible, but that just makes our relationship all the more interesting. I’m more emotional and subjective than Jose is. I feel everything on a very profound and intense level, I tend to follow my intuition more than reason, and I have a tremendous passion for everything I do. On the other hand, my husband is much more passive when it comes to showing emotions, he tends to be very mellow and does not like to spend too much time wallowing in his feelings.

We don’t always see eye to eye but always heart to heart, and despite our differences, we truly make such an amazing team together! I wouldn’t be the superwoman I am today without this man. I have said this before and I will say it until my last breath. This man right here is not just my husband he’s my soul mate, my best friend, lover, confident and biggest supporter.

We first met when we use to be neighbors, we lived in the same apartment complex, about eleven years ago. He was in college and I was attending my last year of high school, we dated briefly and decided to break things off because we simply were in different paths in our lives and things were just not right at the time. We both went our separate ways, we both dated other people and would occasionally bump into each other since we have mutual friends, but never spoked to each other since we had broken up. Seven years later, we finally met up again and went out on a date, a date I wasn’t sure I wanted to go on. But the crazy part was that it seems like we were just picking up from where we left off seven years ago, four months later we got married, then had our first baby boy shortly after and welcomed our second miracle, Maximiliano two years later!  

Fast forward to four years later, more in love than ever! Together we have accomplished so much in just a short period time. We recently became first-time homeowners and together we have created a warm and cozy place, we now call home, with our two beautiful boys, Sebastian who is three years old and Maximiliano who just turned one in October. Our children are our main priority, to show them equal love, kindness, and empathy. Tending to my little family’s needs is truly a dream come true! Keeping our home simple with intention, grace, and joy is my main priority in life.
