life lately.

Life has been busy lately, and I haven't had time to just sit down and have some blogging time to myself. It's currently 6:30 am as I am writing and making this blog post while all three kids are asleep. I haven't been able to make many blog post, but I have a diy project one on the way (it might take a little while). 
For now I'll leave you guys with a couple pf pictures of the reasons I've been so busy, but at the same time enjoying my  time with them. They are a joy to me, and I love them so much and I hope you'll be fond of them too.

My precious Minki

My little fluff ball Nina and charming Claudette (she came with the kids and she's a sweetheart)

I know life is busy, but it's the little moments that make everyday things worth it and I wouldn't change my right now for anything.

How are you guys? Tell me what's new?

Con amor,
Yaris ♡

mother's day (a day late, I know)

 For all the mothers out there happy (late) mother's day! I'm sorry for making this post so late, I spent all day yesterday travelling and then at my grandmother's house with my family.

The flight was ok, although we had to change gates three times and I made the terrible mistake of wearing cute heeled boots. Note to self and anyone else who travels as much as I do: Never pick style over comfort. Today I have very swollen feet but it's been a mellow day so far. I've edited pictures, played with my cousins, and spent quality time with my babies (Minki and Nina).

Anyways, mother's day was a very bitter sweet day for my family. Most of them spent it at the cemetery, while my mom, dad, and I where on our way back home. A month ago we lost our Aunt/ my mother's younger sister. I only just found out the news last Tuesday, she went to a better place but left behind three little angels (my babies). So, now we have a full house of eight people and have not had any time to mourn my aunt but we will honor her. My family currently has custody of my three babies (read as cousins) since my uncle is disabled and isn't able to properly care for them especially since the middle child (a beautiful girl) is also disabled. I welcome them with open arms, I've spent half of my life helping to raise them and I promised my aunt that if anything were to happen I would take them under my wing. And that is exactly what I'm going to do.

Expect to see them on the blog at some point and  a couple of their own diy projects, as well as our transition into having kids in the house again and moving on with our lives making them happier. I'm excited to see what the future has in store for us.

As you can see while traveling my mom used the time to her advantage to knit and took in a couple of naps in. My mother is an admirable woman, I've never met someone as emotionally strong and stable in my life and I only hope that when I become a mother I can be at least a fourth of the woman she is.

How did all of you spend mother's day? And to the mothers I hope your day was as special as every single one of you are!

Con amor,

last day.

It's my last day here in Athens, GA and the start of my summer. It's a bitter sweet feeling, I'm going to miss the great friends I've made here at the same time I'm happy to be going home and seeing my family.

I've spent the last few days at bookstores and craft stores, and I'm so excited about starting all my different diy projects.
I started practicing knitting again, I'm going to make a beanie and then I'm going to knit a rug! I've also started doing some hand lettering by using a little pamphlet that came with my Flow magazine about how to hand letter and it's pretty fun. I do need a lot of practice though.
I'm going back home with a lot of different yarn, art pencils (color and sketching ones) and pens for hand lettering.

Tomorrow is my flight back home and Mother's day, it's going to be a busy day (but I will make a post!)

So, how is your weekend so far? Anything special planned?

 Con amor,

roadtrips and more.

Driving 61 miles see my friend before I go home. I brought some reading material so I can write some ideas and get inspired by some wonderfully creative people.

I'm going to start knitting and crocheting again. I also have a couple of seeing ideas and some diy projects I'm hoping to work on when I get home.

I don't what it is, but I'm feeling really inspired lately!

What are some projects or things you guys have in the works or are looking forward to starting?

Look at the time go! Last final was today and dorm check out.  Of course I had to use my pencil watch, since it seemed appropriate and it's really cute (I've been waiting for an occasion to use it ha).

Anyways this has been the slowest yet fastest semester for me. Some days I thought time could not go any slower and the at times I don't know where the time went.

Anyways yay to the start of my summer!!! I'm thinking of taking some art classes and maybe some photography classes. We'll see how that goes >< 
I'm hoping to get a lot of material for the blog. I'm also planning on doing some internal tourism back home and maybe that will turn into a blog series. Not sure how to name it though... Maybe something like 'Puerto Rico through the eyes of a native', or 'An insider view of the island of Puerto Rico'.... I don't know, I'm horrible at naming things....

I guess today's question is: What would you name the blog series?

Con amor,

may days. may wishes.

It's been so long! I'm so sorry for my absence. Things haven't been great with me lately, but hopefully I'll get back into this again ^^
It's the end of the semester, which means moving out of the dorm and going back home. Yay, for going home, but not so much for the moving .... Move out always stresses me out, luckily it my last one for a long time (crossing my fingers).

There are a couple of things I have planned for the summer, I'm not going to say what so I don't jinx it! But hopefully I'll be able to blog more and have a lot more to share with you guys!

I still haven't taken my new camera (my baby for a spin) so hopefully I can do that. Also, I might take some photography classes, I'll keep you guys posted!

So lately I've  been obsessed with this site called polyvore, so expect posts with my favorite things from time to time or some dream outfits.
This is my first of hopefully many more to come!

May wishes

how have all of you been?

Con amor,
Yaris ♡
