I am originally from Colombia, a Maryland and DC attorney, reader, and writer. I love to cook, garden, ride my bike…I’ve been a Spanish teacher, a bartender, and have a passion for travel and scuba diving.
I write about all kinds of topics that interest me- many have nothing to do with each other, but they all make up who I am. Even though I have only published non-fiction, my passion is fiction. I’m still too shy to show anyone what I’m working on, but when I feel ready, I’ll see what happens.

Thanks for checking out and liking my recent post “How I Got Wonderfully Lost”. I look forward to perusing your blog when my poor eye stops twitching (it’s time for this mommy to sleep, since the kids don’t yet have the same appreciation for “sleeping in” on Saturdays!). Keep writing!
Thanks! I really enjoyed looking around your blog and will come back for more! I hope your eye feels better- usually catching up on sleep helps, but as a mommy, I’m sure catching up on sleep isn’t a realistic option. Love your blog!
Hello! Thank you for liking my Blog! I look forward to reading yours as well.
Thanks, Joel! Keep writing, I love the blog!
Thanks for following my cycling blog, you have some good stuff here!
Thanks! I like your cycling blog too!
Nice to meet you.
Same here! looking forward to reading more of your work- I really liked your post on 10 things about blogging, very insightful- and yes, sometimes I get likes and no hits!
It’s weird, isn’t it? Anyway, here’s to being true.
Hi, thanks for following my blog — now I discover you too. I already see we have a love for street art (e.g. those Philly murals) and decorated bicycles (Happy Bike) in common, and I know there’ll be more.
Hi! Thanks for stopping by! I found your post “You can’t miss it” on the reader and spent a good deal of time on your blog- we do have quite a bit in common. I’m looking forward to reading more! 🙂
you have such a great blog 🙂
Thank you so much!
You have a very interesting and eclectic site. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you! 🙂
Thank you for visiting my blog, Dabble. I really appreciate it! I am looking forward to reading yours now that I have found it 🙂
Thanks! Love your blog!

YAY! Congratulations again- I love your blog!
Very interesting blog! I, too, am an attorney. It’s good to see that you are tapping into your creative side!
I just took a gander at your blog and will be back- love the asparagus and anchovies- I think I have a can of the same brand in my pantry! hahahaha! I love finding other attorneys doing creative stuff- most people don’t realize that attorneys can be fun too! 🙂
Thank you for dropping by my blog. 🙂
Very interesting blog! I’ll be sure to drop by again! I’m still reading 🙂
Thank you very kindly! 🙂
What an interesting person! And interestingly, I have many of the same interests + time spent as a lawyer. I’m looking forward to learning more Spanish.
WOW! I just read your bio page and we do have a lot in common. Growing up in Colombia, my family had a huge farm in the middle of the jungle, where my dad started one of Colombia’s first animal sanctuaries and natural reserves. We would spend our summer and Christmas vacations there, picking wild fruit and living a pretty rural, close to earth life… your post made me remember all of that! thanks so much… I will be back to read more- I’m following now!
Nice things you got here. I like a couple of stuff. Well, thanks for being here. Have a great day.
Thank you! hope you’ll be back!
Sure girl. To bad you don’t know my language. I have just 10-20 posts in english. See ya’.
Have you thought of putting a translation button on your blog- I follow a few blogs in languages that I don’t speak, but I translate everything by clicking on the following button:
I’ll check out your english posts!
Thank you very much for the information. Now it hits me. Well please tell me how can i do that? The steps please, because i am stupid today.
No problem! go to the website, click on the “get your button” button. Select the language and you will get a text box with HTML code. Copy that and in wordpress, go to “widgets” select the “text” widget and drag it to your side bar (or wherever you want it). Paste the HTML code into the text box, hit save and your are ready to rock and roll!
I’ll have to hug you for that. But not right now. Ok girl, thanks again, for everything.
