My Vida: A digital journal & Scrapbook


Being the new family that we are, I’m realizing that I have yet to create photo albums, scrapbooks, journals and why not get started on documenting some of our fondest memories in this digital journal. This space here has the simple purpose to save memoires.  Mi Vida is for Shawn and I, to look back and remember our adventures, moments of joy, and everything in between. This digital journal is for Baby E & his/her future siblings. This is for our families who live far away…as in Costa Rica, Canada, Mexico, Guatemala and beyond. That’s far right? Who else…Ah YES! This is also for you, so you can get to know the personal behind the keyboard.  I’m excited to start and share this digital journal with all of you!

IMG_1154I’m married to this handsome man you see photographed above. This genuine, hardworking, and kind man is Shawn. He is a Material Science Engineering student. He’s a complete left brainer and is all things science and logic, while I’m the polar opposite. I’m all things creative, and colorful. I’d say we bring the best of both worlds and make a great team.

Turley Wedding (142)

Turley First Look (60)

We were married  last summer and life has been a dream ever since. Marrying him has been the best decision I’ve ever made.


We both come from Latino American homes and love everything that comes with it. The abundance of mouth watering food like Tamales & Tacos, the music, family parties and traditions. We hope to share our love for our Latin culture with you and everyone around us.
We are expecting our first baby this June! We can not wait to meet our sweet Baby E this summer. Mami & Papi love you so mucho!


Did I mention that our sweet Baby E. is a handsome baby B O Y? Read about the gender reveal here.
On our down time, when were both not working, studying, or working on  projects you can probably find us walking hand in hand exploring the city.

Cheers to vida & all the happiness it brings!sig12
