One of my favorite things to do every beginning of the year, since getting married, is to look back on our wedding day. Fidel and I got married on January 4, 2015, and February is, of course, the love month. So these first two months of the year, I love looking at our wedding photos, and even our wedding videos. It makes me feel like a new bride all over again. Haha! Also, though I am not a big planner of events, I enjoyed planning this wedding. I guess, every bride feels this way, right?! Hahaha! Down below are our first five suppliers that we booked to make sure our wedding was right on track! Read more
I started watching Stranger Things just last week (I know, what’s wrong with me and where have I been, right?!), and immediately fell in love with Eleven! I mean, how couldn’t I? Millie Bobby Brown is absolutely talented, and beautiful. Read more
I don’t have it all figured out. To be honest, when people ask me what I do, I often pause and think how to respond.

Fidel looks at me with a smile on his face as he playfully holds three of his fingers up.

It has been quite a season for the two of us, that’s filled with invaluable lessons. What we build together at this time will be carried on to our marriage. Here are a few things we’ve learned, so far, that matter not only now, but in every season of our lives.
Too often we hear the words, “God will never give you something you can’t handle.” I have believed that to be true until this Relevant Magazine article shifted my perspective on the matter. Here’s an excerpt from the author, Michael Hidalgo:
When we become aware that life will give us more than we can handle and come to grips with this, we find a promise: God is faithful to meet us in the mess and in the pain.
And when He does, we learn to recognize our constant need to depend on Him. This is why Peter instructs the Church to cast our fears, worries, suffering and pain on God. He reasons we can do this because God cares for us. When life deals us more than we can handle, we can rest in the reality that God can handle it.
