This year, I'm giving thanks for:

1. This guy and that little girl...

My husband and I started dating in high school.  Since this time, we graduated from schools, moved away from home, passed bar exams, married, moved back home, traveled, started practicing law...we've been through so much and I can only hope that the next 60+ years are as amazing as the past decade and a half.  Together, we have an amazing life and family that will one day expand but for now, our cozy family of three (little Mia, the doxy) are as happy as can be.

2. These two crazy kids...

Aren't my mami and papi cute?!  They are funny, obnoxious (don't get offended, Mom!), caring, loving, and all the good things great parents are suppose to be.  Did I mention they are funny and not on purpose?  They taught and are still teaching my sisters and I so much that I don't think I will ever be able to repay them.  Love you guys!

3.  These silly little sisters...

They make me laugh, sometimes drive me crazy (as I probably do to them as well) but they are my little sisters and I love them dearly.  We've been through a lot but we are always able to laugh later.  I'm very proud to be your big sister.

4. That stressful thing I do every day called my job...

Yes, job, you stress me out but I can't imagine doing anything else...besides being independently wealthy of course ;-)  In all seriousness, it has always been my dream to practice law and now that I am, I have to remind myself sometimes that I am doing exactly what I've always wanted to do and that I'm blessed.  It might sound cliche but I enjoy helping solve people's issues.  I feel fulfilled and gratified and hope these feelings never go away.

5. YOU!

I first started reading blogs in 2010 when I was planning my weddings and stumbled upon a fashion blog.  I was hooked!  I thought about starting this blog back then but never got around to it.  Now, it is like my own little personal space that I never thought anyone would know about.  I never knew what the blogging community was until you, readers, welcomed me.  This is such an amazing community and I'm so happy to have connected with other bloggers and readers.  I look forward to coming home from work and checking my emails, comments, and your blog posts.  I've enjoyed "getting to know" some of you through your own blogs.  Basically, you are awesome :-)

Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Such a cute post! I feel all the love and I'm very happy that you have so much to be grateful for. Like you, I also enjoy helping others with their problems, which is why I'm in grad school for mental health counseling! :)

  2. Happy Thanksgiving girl! Hope you enjoy it with all your loved ones! Great pictures of the family:))!

  3. You and your husband look great together- it's amazing that you were high school sweethearts, too! Lovely family photos and the dog too of course. Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. This was adorable. I hope that picture of you and your husband is framed in your house somewhere. Plus your little doxy - so cute! If only our little doxies could get together and play - SO CUTE! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

  5. Precious! Happy Thanksgiving to you, too!!

  6. Happy Thanksgiving Maria!

    Love seeing this post of your family and those important to you.

  7. Maria, I love your stories. I feel like if we ever met we'll be the best of friends ;-)
    I enjoy reading your blog and all your outfits are so well put together and elegant.
