Hi Miami Moms! I’m Kristina Fiorentino and I’m so excited to be joining this wonderful collective of local women. As a contributor to Miami Mom Collective, I hope to share with all of you a glimpse into my day-to-day along with topics, thoughts, and ideas that I am passionate about. As moms in this community, we all share some sort of common ground and I’m really looking forward to sharing with you!
I was born and raised right here in sunny Miami, Florida. I lived in South Miami for the better part of my life, attended college in North Miami–where my husband and I met–and started off my career in Coral Gables, later leading me to Doral. And now I live in the Redlands. Needless to say, I have explored all parts of Miami and can appreciate everything that this magical city has to offer. From culture to cuisine, urban to rural–this city has so much to offer our community. It truly is a melting pot and I love all of its flavors.
The moment I became a mother, I learned my true purpose and my true potential. From that point forward, I knew that everything I do, I do for these kids. I am a mom to three. Isaac is 5 years old. He loves music, outdoor adventures and has the kindest heart. Olivia, we call her Olive, is about to turn 3. She is a powerhouse; she knows how to command a room with her big blue eyes and is the best snuggler around. Eloise is 6 months old. From the moment she was born, she fit in so effortlessly around here. She has the most contagious giggle, and I can’t wait to see who she is destined to become. I love every second of being their mom and I am so grateful that I get to experience life through their eyes.
Collective to me means community. Before I even became a mom, I learned the true value of working together with other like-minded people–people who cheer on your accomplishments instead of pulling you down and vice versa. That is a collective.
As I grew older and had kids, my family and I moved into the most wonderful neighborhood full of other families with kids similar in age. Throughout those years, I truly learned what “It takes a village” means. That is a collective. And most recently, I have had the honor of meeting other women in my farming community who are mothers, farmers, and business owners. We have helped each other through the pandemic and really been there for each other as support. That is a collective. I am so excited to now be joining this new collective of bloggers and hope that my writing inspires, comforts, and resonates with you!
