I’ve been a witness to BLISS. Last weekend I saw one of my dearest friend’s marry the man of her dreams and it was an amazing event to be a part of…


It was actually pretty eventful for me to get to the venue, because at the very time I needed to cross the Bay Bridge, it was basically shut down because of a person who was threatening to JUMP! Needless to say I sat in traffic for more than an hour, and when I finally could, I turned around, backtracked to take the San Mateo Bridge across the Bay! So, come hell or high water..I MADE IT to Half Moon Bay..I wouldn’t have missed it for the world.


For the dinner seating they did a movie theme…of course the happy couple was the “main attraction” with their self-titled flick “Lovers on the Run” ….SO CUTE! I sat at “10 Things I Hate About You.”


My homegirl Norma was me plus 1 and she met me there, and well, we took lotsa pics!

The entire event was so intimate and cozy, with just enough touches, beautifully understated! They also had a FUN photo booth with props… Norma and I couldn’t resist to snap few shots…


Norma loved the Chevy’s sombrero…. and check us as the Jabbawockeez”

It’s been a full month since I left Miami and while I have been having withdrawals – mostly due to temperature changes, I’ve been settling in, adjusting, eating great food and most importantly getting time to visit with my family and friends! So, I thought I’d share a few pictures I’ve snapped during the first 30 days back….

Jake’s Baptism

I am a Godmother! One of my long-time friends, Kim, asked me if I would be a Godparent to her 2nd son Jake and his baptism was this past weekend! Here he is with me in his all-white Christening outfit.


I think Jake was a little self conscious when they poured the holy water on his head…I could see his mind thinking “Why are they holding me flat like this and WHY is everyone staring at me!” haha

I’ve known Jake’s Mom, Kim since I was 9… and there’s nothing like having extended family!
