Hi there! My name is Cecilia, my nick name is Cecy and my middle name is Margarita.
I’m a Mexican-American modern mami, wife, daughter, sister, friend and created this blog to write about things in my life.
I love to travel with family, I don’t care how light I have to pack or if I have to bring extra snacks for my kid. It excites me to plan for my next trip!
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, going to the snowy mountains, or to the beautiful tropical beaches of Mexico. Other activities included 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 they say my energy keeps on going and it’s rare to see me do just nothing. When I was in college, aside from spending time with family, I would volunteer, intern, work part-time, was a board member of the PR association, did voiceovers for radio, worked at Disneyland, hosted Disney media events, coached a volleyball team, an indoor soccer team, and a t-ball team, played soccer, played live music jams with friends, practiced DSLR photography, attended music events, etc.
Nowadays as a mom, I work from home as a Spanish translator/HR/social media assistant and raise my 4-year-old toddler boy full-time. I enjoy audiobooks, always learning something new, good conversations, editing home videos so that my son Dilan can watch himself when he gets older, playing guitar, singing, music events, (big music junkie over here!), going to family community events, soccer, hiking, bike riding, and walking our dog. The hardest part for me is living far away from my family that I grew up with.
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.
Are you married? Married my husband in July 2012.
Kids? My 3-year old son.
