Hi, my fellow Miami Moms! My name is Sharon, a.k.a. Suki. I have lived in Miami for over 30 years and absolutely love this city! Currently, I have an Instagram account, @suki_says_style, where I share affordable fashions, yummy food ideas, and some cute outfit ideas for little girls. I’ll be sharing some of these ideas here on Miami Moms Blog as well!
I have lived in this amazing city for pretty much all my life. The blending of cultures and lifestyles that Miami has to offer isn’t found everywhere. One day you can explore the artsy Wynwood, the next experience fine dining in Coral Gables. Then you can head to the beach for sand and sun! But let’s get real, this city has some of the most interesting food around. From your basics of Italian and American, to the exotic Persian and Indian, to the most amazing fusion cuisines, you’ve got it all! Our family loves all the “mom and pop” restaurants that our area has to offer.
Education in Miami is another top-notch accolade this city has to offer! I attended School for Advanced Studies, a dual enrollment program, that allowed me to receive my high school diploma along with my associate’s degree. Then I moved on to Florida International University for both my undergraduate and graduate degrees in education. I have been teaching at the elementary level for 15 years and absolutely love it! The energy that children have is contagious and I love unlocking their potential!
From a very young age, I always knew I wanted to be a mama. I had the fortune of having amazing parents and family as role models growing up, so it was a natural desire to become a mama and wife. I met my husband in high school, and the rest is history! We got married after 9 years of dating and have two beautiful daughters.
Now, I think everyone has the ideal image in their heads before they become a mama. Cute baby cuddles, a perfectly decorated and clean house, pre-baby body… well let me tell you that definitely didn’t happen (well the cute baby cuddles did)! Breastfeeding was painful, I was exhausted and nervous about everything, and felt like I was not in control of anything. But with the help of my amazing husband and fabulous support system, I got the hang of motherhood. By the time my second munchkin came around, things were a tad (and I do mean a tad) easier. This job is one of the most demanding and exhausting jobs out there, but the joy these two bring us can’t be put into words!
