I am thankful that I was able to capture this marvelous bird eating his lunch right in front of my house.





Its official!


I will be graduating from Metropolitan Community College with a degree in Horticulture, Land Systems, and Management- Small Farm Market. I’m honestly relief that I’m done with this degree.  After putting many hours of homework, projects, labs, studying, panic attacks/anxiety. I’m super happy.

At one point, I thought I was going to fail one of my classes. I somehow got motivated and decided to study every night. After putting so many hours of studying, I was able to raise my grade to a B+.

Even tho, It is just an associate degree in science. This is actually a big deal for my family and myself.  One of the reasons is that I will be the first person in my family to get a college degree and I have decided to continue my education and hopefully make my family- (especially my mom and dad) proud.

Thanks to everyone for all your love, support, your push, and your encouragement!

Hello, Everyone!!

I hope everything is going well with you guys!

It feels like it been a long time since I have been active on WordPress. Unfortunately, it has been a stressful 2 1/2 months with school. Butttt, I want to share some good news with ya. Yesterday 2/27/2017 it was the last day of classes! 

However, I am feeling anxious/ exhausted because I want to know what my final grade is. I do hope that my professors will have an opportunity to update their grade book tomorrow.


Corundas- A dish from the past.

Made some delicious corundas 😀 Plus I’m lucky that my talented mother has taught me how to make this wonderful indigenous dish.

What are Corundas? Green Leaves of the corn plant are used to wrap the corn masa tamale, and then it’s shaped into a triangle. Corundas can have cheese, veggies, chili, or just pure masa. Personally, I added more chili on top because I love spicy food ❤ haha!


Fun Fact- Corundas were the main dish for the Purepecha Prince and have been passed down from generation to generation in Michoacan.<3 

Lately, I have been wanting to learn how to cook tradition food from my Mexican culture. Thanks to my mom, she has been very patient with me and taking her time to help me out. It is a special time for me because I’m spending more time with my mom. I enjoy her company even more.
