my sisters...

I love my sisters so much. It's so weird how each of us live in completely different countries now. My oldest sister lives in Canada and my middle sister lives in Quisqueya. I'm the youngest and sometimes I feel I'm the one that misses them the most. Maybe cause Cesarina is married with two kids now (my cupcake and buba) and my middle sister, Yoyi, is married as well and has all our family with her in Quisqueya. In other words, they have busier lives. I just saw Cesarina when I was in Canada of course but I miss my Yoyi :( Mostly because I just found out SHE'S PREGNANT!!! YAYYYYY!!! I'm so happy! Oh I just can't wait to visit my little island of Quisqueya now! It's going to be so much better with a little baby giggling around ^_^

The absence of flaw in beauty is itself a flaw

I don't want to forget...
When I am old and wrinkly, and my boobs sag, and I can't wear skirts, I don't want to forget
I don't want to forget that I was once beautiful, and that I still am.
No, I don't want to forget that I'll still be lovely with my white hair and laugh lines.
I don't want to forget that everyone is beautiful. That everything is beautiful.
Old, young, skinny or fat, curly hair, straight hair, pouty lips, thin lips, freckles
All beautiful
Bright colorful faces, all shapes and sizes, smiles and laughter,
Beautiful, every single imperfection, every flaw: charming, pretty, cute, just lovely.
I don't want to forget
That you, reading this, YOU are beautiful
You without the makeup, and the glossy lips, and the hair straightener, and the pretty dress
the way you roll out of bed
I don't want to forget...
I don't want YOU to forget, that you my darling, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL (and so is everyone else)

The best wedding dance entrance EVER. Period.

I'm a little obssesive with this wedding entrance. I don't think its very healthy that I have watched it maybe over 1000 times over the last two years and I'm still not sick of it. I hope this couple never divorces, and when they are having issues they can look back at this and remember those times- I believe it will bring a smile to their faces and fade all their problems away- can I be any more positive? LOL! I think I love this video so much because it shows what life is all about: Love, family and friends, laughter, and never taking anything to serious and just having fun! Its just perfect! When they are old and wrinkly they can show this to their grandkids, how cool would it be to know your parents or your grandparents made the most beautiful, fun and famous wedding entrance ever? So famous it is the first on Youtube,was all over the news, radio, t.v shows (The Office and others), and even movies have mentioned it. I don't think any other will top it off, and if they do, this will always be the one that started it. "Forever" by Chris Brown adds to the perfection. Ah isnt love just beautiful?

I have been given a few awards in the past and being the lazy person that I am, I have not followed the rules and posted it here. However, I am truly thankful for them and always thought I will dedicate a spacial post for them but months have past and nothing. I always do this, I want to create something so perfect that I actually never even end up doing it. I know, shame on me. However, the beautiful Harlow Darling from Elegantly Wasted gave me an award and I have decided I will just do my awards as soon as they are given to me and that's that, whether my post is crappy or not. Seriously, what is my problem? Okay enough blogging and on with the award. Here are the rules:
-Post who gave you this award
-state 10 things you like
-give this award to ten other bloggers you like
Ten things I like  LOVE:
1. Summer Nights
I love summer with a passion. Especially summer nights and dusk. I just love taking walks when the sun is going down and reading with a blanket in the park. Summer is over in NYC and I'm so melancholic these days :(
2. Photography
I love capturing moments with a camera. I love photography, particularly candid ones, where people are not aware a picture is being taken. Such beautiful moments can be captured this way. 
3. Anything Vintage
I love vintage stuff, whether is furniture, beautiful dresses, photography and even books. I love mixing eras and having things with a history behind it.
4. The Country
I love the country or anything green enough. I love being surrounded by trees, and grass and flowers. I love little old houses where the wooden floors creek with endless backyards. Unfortunately I don't see this in the city :/
5. Reading
I love reading. I have countless of books in my shelves. I just love cuddling up with hot cocoa in the winter or going to the park in the summer and spreading a blanket on the grass and reading a good book.  Sometimes is good to step away from your life and live someone else's for a few hours even if its a fictional character ;P
6. New York City
As much as I curse my apple in the winter, I most admit I have grown to love it even with its old buildings, dirty streets and smelly train stations. Because once it lights up in the night theres nothing like it. 
7. My family
I love my family. Most of them are in my little Island of Quisqueya la Bella, so I only get to visit once or twice a year yet we are all so close and affectionate. My family is my backbone, without them I am nothing.
8. Children
I have a Psychology degree and children are my passion as you can even see from the previous post before this about my niece and nephew. I love working with children and helping a child out is one of the best feelings you can ever experience.
9. The Mister
I know a bit corny, but I do love the boyfriend. First time in my life I can actually say this. I found true love all the way in my middle twenties. I had even lost hope at times that I will never find a good one and a year and a half ago I finally found the one.
10. Quisqueya la Bella
This is where I was born and lived until I was eight years old. It is the most beautiful little island in my eyes, with all its little colorful vintage houses, mango trees in the backyards, and fresh tropical warm winds.

Now the ten bloggers that I like LOVE (besides Elegantly Wasted) are:
in no particular order btw ;P

There are too many blogs that I love, and I just wanted to keep on tagging but I'll just tag you dolls in the next one so don't think you'll sneak by, I will get you next time ;P
