Wordless Wednesday: Amanecer

La vista desde la ventana de mi oficina en casa. Me levanté temprano para terminar una historia ayer y esto fue lo que me encontré cuando abrí las persianas. Lindo, ¿no?

One of the best parts of raising bilingual and bicultural children is that from the get go they are exposed to more than just one culture.

Although we speak only Spanish at home, because she now spends a lot more time in the outside world, she’s heard me interact in English in more than one occasion.
