I have been thinking of this blog for a while now. At least for a year, but for some reason, I never got around to it. I don't know if it was laziness, nerves or what that kept me from writing, but I hope that once I get started, I won't be able to stop...
For the last couple of days I have wrestled with what I would post about. What would be a good first blog, what would be good enough to start a legacy? I had a million thoughts. Should I write about my adoration with Vincent D'Onofrio of Law & Order: Criminal Intent fame (there will be a post dedicated to this, don't worry :)? My recent trip to Cancun? My hate of the snow and the cold? Resolutions for the new year??? After thinking about it I decided to dedicate this blog to three people that have been pushing me to start this damn thing!!
Carolina - My fabulous friend. She is smart, witty and cute as hell, can't be on time for the life of her, but she still rocks!! Carolina is a young mom, entrepreneur, and writer. By reading her own personal blog http://carolinapichardo.blogspot.com you can see what a great writer she is. Ohh, before I forget, here's another plug, her other endeavor YUM - Young Urban Moms, get it Yum, Yummy. :) http://www.youngurbanmoms.org
Wes - My RA little brother :) When I met Wes back in August, I didn't know what to think? Who was this waspy kid speaking better Spanish than me?? As weeks went by, we would talk about the problems of the world, what we as human beings can contribute to this cruel world. What not to do on a date. Golf. People I don't like, because Wes likes everybody, and that is the truth. Religion. Poverty. Living in far away lands and everything in between. Lately, our conversations have centered around putting thoughts down and making ourselves accountable, for the sake of ourselves and not others. The following clip will describe a little bit of Wes in about five minutes. We watched this video two times, back to back. Its funny and thoughtful, just like my little brother Wes.

Last, but not least, Eddie - My best friend and boyfriend. Poor Eddie, he has had to hear about this thing forever and ever. He will send me reminder emails after I say something funny or witty telling me that my latest ramblings would be a good idea for a blog. I secretly think he wants me to start this thing so he does not have to hear me go on and on and on. Now he has to do both, hear and read :) Love you babe!! Eddie is the smartest and funniest person I know. Under the dry humor is someone with a gentle heart and boyish smile. He is always full of interesting conversation, he challenges me to be a better me and I am eternally grateful.
Carolina, Wes and Eddie, this is to you. Thank you!
