Yo Quiero Links!

Posted by: | 2 Comments

I know it’s been a couple of weeks without our regular Sunday, Yo Quiero Links! post and I’m sorry for that… Summers are just crazy that way! It was my daughter’s birthday last Sunday, so I was pretty much swamped the whole weekend preparing for an awesome party where she – from the contagious sound of her genuine laughter – appears to have had a lot of fun! Anyhow, there’s much to share with you this Sunday, so let’s getRead More ...

According to the ALA’s website, the Pura BelpréRead More ...

How do you say: Happy Birthday?

Posted by: | 12 Comments

I absolutely love summer…for a lot of reasons, but mainly because my daughter is a summer baby which means we get to celebrate her cumpleaños outdoors in the melting heat (as opposed to indoors hiding from the snow.) In fact, both Vanessa and Camila were born pretty much in the middle of the summer, so both Ana and I will be celebrating their birthdays pretty soon. This got me thinking about a little tradition we have at our house regardingRead More ...

Another scorcher here in the West, so we’ll be heading out to the pool soon but before we do, we wanted to share this weekend’s links with you – especially the first one where we get a mention that made us very happy.
