Never Can Say Goodbye

Well, after much soul searching and deliberation I've decided to officially call it quits on my lil' blog.

Now, why you might ask?

Well, the main reason is that I have been promoted to Manager at work and like my father said to me once: "There are 3 things that never come back; time, words and opportunities", so after some thought I think this is the right time to take this very good opportunity.

After working for this company for more than 6 years, I feel ready to take on this new position, but not without forgetting that "a job worth doing, is worth doing it right", so my days are now filled with much more responsibilities that need my full and complete attention, specially because I love where I work, the people I work with and the challenges that come with it.

But, I will not erase my blog, mainly because I want to give myself the opportunity to come back and read about the past (almost) 4 years of blogging and also because you never know what could happen in the future... right?

Perhaps if I do ever come back, you guys might still be here or not, but meanwhile if you feel like staying in touch with me please do so by email or even add me as a facebook friend, and if you guys ever in the vicinity of the Cayman Islands, do not hesitate to drop me a line so we can meet in person, cheers!

So, I guess this is it, a sort of goodbye to whoever is out there, still coming by, reading and enjoying taking a peak....

But I can't really leave without giving Thanks to all my reader through this past 4 years, loved getting your comments and interacting with you guys, my life is better since I am found you guys to be such a great audience and friends....

Adios amigos, be well and God Bless!!!

Pause and take a breath!

At a time when life is some times confusing, when opportunities don't come to us so easy, here I am today writing another post but considering finishing my blog adventure for good.

Yesterday before falling sleep I mentioned it to my hubby and his reply was "I heard that before!", but this time, for me it feels as if it's the right time to perhaps considering it for good.

Part of my heart is still here and still wants to continue writing and sharing about my life, but part of it is saying that life is giving me chances that need my full and complete attention so perhaps stepping away is the adult, responsible thing to do.

So, for now, I am going to go on a very needed hiatus to do some soul searching and making a final decision, perhaps once I take on this new opportunities... hopefully I will be able to find the needed inspiration and time to dedicate to this space again, perhaps not.

Regardless of my decision, I have to say that every single minute spent here's been well worth it, specially because of this space has giving me the opportunity to meet some amazing people as well as to share the world of so many amazing bloggers out there.

So, until then... Be good and stay classy!!!

Friday Letters

Dear week: you flew by so fast I can't hardly contain my happiness when I think about tomorrow waking up to Saturday.

Dear Hubs: Thank you for yet another year of happiness together and for making my day yesterday a very special one, Happy Anniversary, again! Oh, and also thanks to the wonderful gift/upgrade on my phone, you rock and I love you!

Dear Samsung Galaxy S3: Welcome to my life, I needed a replacement for my S2 which was great but being that it was almost 2 years old, this was a very much needed upgrade, thanks to hubby!

Dear weekend: This is how I see you in my near future...

Dear Iron Man 3: I really enjoyed you last night, even though it was my very first midnight premier I was able to handle it well as you were very much action packed.

Dear Robert Downey Jr: man you are hot!... and specially when you play the role of Tony Stark "philanthropist, millionaire, ladies man", if only... LOL! (kidding hubs- you are my only one!).

Dear readers; have a wonderful weekend, hope you get to spend it how you want it, with whoever you want it, and doing what you want! But if that's not possible, there's always the option of just "chillin" like me...

Any special plans you would like to share?

Happy Weekend!

Time sure flies when we are having fun...

Fours years ago (to the day) we were getting ready to take a big step in our lives, to make our already happy life together official and to say our "I Do's", promises to love, keep each other company in good and not so good times.

Well, so far so good, we have a really good life together and for me the best part is to know I have somebody by my side that is not only an honorable, trustworthy man, but that is also willing to be silly and play along with me even in my worst of moods, one that "thinks" he can carry a tune and make me laugh with his serenades and specially one that is beautiful inside and out!

I am firm believer that "All we need is love" but also as you know (because I've said it to you before) love is not necessary the answer to all of our problems as we also need trust, faith, empathy, compassion and even responsibility to find answers to situation that life can bring us, thank you for being at my side to find all those answers and even raise the questions when needed!

So, here's to another 4 thousand years together, still loving each other, cherishing our time together, being silly, having to encounter life's problem head on while holding hands.

Every day but specially today, I am incredibly thankful to God for bringing you into my life and for Him to have given us the opportunity to see each other in the eyes and liking what we saw.

May God always keeps you safe and our life filled with the love and friendship that we've shared from the very first day!

So stay tune, it's not even half a century but I am already looking forward to loving you many more years!

Happy Anniversary Babe!!!

10 on Tuesday: May is coming

Being that we are closing the month of April to welcome the month of May, I decided to do a version of 10 on Tuesday about the 10 things I am excited about this coming May.

Our 4th wedding anniversary this coming Thursday May 2nd. I can hardly believe it's been that many years already. 

Every year for our anniversary we try to do something that none of us have done before. First year we went on an Helicopter tour around the island, second year we went for dinner to the Ritz Carlton and last year we spend two nights at a beach condo on the other side of the island....

This year I am so looking forward to go to the movies with my two favorite men, my hubby and Robert Downey Jr, as we are going to catch the Island premier of Iron Man 3 on our Anniversary night at 12 midnight, it's an invitation only special screening that I won tickets for via a radio station. 

I am so looking forward to our new pool... Can't wait for that to happen this coming weekend.

There are some pretty big changes coming up at work, hopefully those would mean good things for me as well as the company, cannot give too many details yet, but hopefully soon I will! So stay tuned...

If you've read my blog for a while, you would know I love visitors and having family around. Well, on May 11th my Sister in Law and his new husband are coming to visit, they will be here for a week and although I am not so sure I will be able to take a lot of time off, it's going to be nice to spend evenings with them and hopefully squeeze in a visit to see the stingrays, can't wait!

Even with a new pool coming up, believe or not, I am also looking forward to some spring showers, we really need to rain and our plants and specially our two Ponciana trees in the back will really appreciate them!

I sent my brother and SIL a package a couple of weeks ago, well I am so looking forward for them to get is and see if they like it... can't wait!

I am also looking forward to my next giveaway will be all about summer, although I am not sure if I will be able to have it by May I hope to.

Well, other than this, I am looking forward to a good, productive month of May, filled with great time and sharing with my readers as well as enjoy all the great blogs out there... So Happy end of April and here's to the best month of May yet!!!

Good things do end...

"All good things come to an end" they say, now the weekend is over and I feel as if it wasn't long enough to get the proper rest I wanted and needed... But overall it was a fun time.

Friday we went out to celebrate a friend's birthday and she went all the way hiring even an limo to drive us around.

not a very good photo as it was taken with a phone
She specifically requested that we all wear dresses and she even provided tiaras... Oh well, what can I say, girls just wanna have fun, right? We went to places I've never been to and perhaps never will go back, but it was a nice time and I am specially happy that she had a good night!

Saturday we went out to dinner with some friends and we had a really nice time...

On other not so good news, one of our 7 cats (Albie) is been missing since last Thursday and as days go by I am afraid she is not coming back...

This makes me very sad and I don't even want to wonder what could have happened to her, because of all the possible scenarios some are not good.

So right now all I can do is focus on the love, care, shelter and food that we were able to give her while she lived with us... All she ever gave us was love and tenderness so for that she will always remain in my heart.

This is probably the last video I have of her and it was taken about a week and a half ago... I miss her and when she used to get on two legs for me to reach her little head to pet her.

Cutie, eh? She has left a big gap on our gang...

Have a nice Monday :)
