Hi there! My name is Cecilia, my nick name is Cecy and my middle name is Margarita.
I’m a Mexican American millennial mom, wife, daughter, sister, friend and created this blog to write about things in my life. I’m what they call “a jack of many trades, master of none” as they say in Spanish, “le entro a todo!”
I love to travel, I don’t care how light I have to pack or if I have to handle a toddler along the way, I’ve been there, done that, and am most likely planning for the next time!
Growing up I remember how I always had so many different hobbies, from soccer to kickball to skating and biking. Going on trips with my family such as camping, to the snow, or to the beautiful beaches of Mexico. Playing the violin, flute, guitar, singing, writing, making home videos for fun, and choreographing dance moves with my cousins.
Friends from my radio station days, call me “La Pilas” because I never stop going – can never be doing just nothing. When I was in college, aside from spending time with family, I would volunteer, intern, work, was a board member of the PR association, did voiceovers for radio, worked at Disneyland, hosted media Disney events, coached a volleyball team, an indoor soccer team, and a t-ball team, played soccer, played live music jams with friends, practice DSLR photography, attend music events, etc.
Nowadays as a mom, I work from home as a HR assistant/Social Media Marketing Coordinator/Spanish translator, raise an almost 3-year-old toddler boy, I enjoy blogging, reading, always learning something new, heart-to-heart conversations, editing/posting videos on YouTube so that Dilan can watch himself when he gets older, playing guitar, singing, music events, (big music junkie over here!), family community events, going hiking, bike riding, walking our dog, etc.
A few facts about me:
Where were you born? Born & raised in Long Beach, California.
With who? My mom, dad, brother, sister (and a huge extended close family)
College/Degree? Graduated from California State University, Fullerton with my B.A. in Communications, minor in Spanish, and a certificate in HR management.

Currently live? After I got married I moved with my hubs to a little suburb city east of San Francisco, California.
