Turning dreams into reality, in Mexico
The reason I am taking the time to sit and write this blog, is for you, my reader. Whoever you are, I am lucky you came across my writing.

I am sharing my own experience, with no “make up”. Real and straight. Let’s go for a ride, shall we?

Of course, our kids, diets, and menopause symptoms came up, but also the issue of needing to fulfill a purpose, to find finally the core of our passion. This magical thing that will move you forward and will bring you joy and a sense of fulfillment beyond your family. For me is easier than for others because I know exactly what my passion is. I have a strong drive to create and this drive has taken me to initiate many interesting projects.
