I do carry an iPhone with me and I don´t know what I did before it. I have a great collection of apps that keep my daughter entertained while in the car during long drives or at moments whenRead More ...

It would be an understatement to say my husband is a soccer/futból aficionado. The word is apasionado.  He grew up in Mexico City, where futbol and telenovelas are an oasis of escapism.  His grandfather led two of the most popular and beloved clubs, which also happen to be rivals from the same city:  El America y los Pumas. Fútbol and Pumas are a part of his heritage and one he embraced early on and trained to become a great, yetRead More ...
