Even though I was born in Venezuela, Miami has been part of my life ever since I was little. But my connection got stronger when I moved to this amazing place to study fashion merchandising.

Miami for me represents a unique place where you can find a diversity of food, culture, art and more. But also, it is the place where I treasure unforgettable moments.

Motherhood

All my life I have been a very traditional person, always trying to live by the book–very influenced by Disney’s princesses, dreaming of my prince charming and a happily ever after. So, being a mom wasn’t the exception.

For me having kids was totally part of my goals in life. However, like in movies, nobody shows you the hard part or the behind the scenes. This created a big contrast between expectation and real-life that caused me a lot of anguish and stress when my baby arrived. Total reality shock of what I imagined and what being a Miami mom really is.

Since I knew I was pregnant I started to read books and research A LOT. I even did some courses about labor, breastfeeding and mostly maternity 101. The truth and first lecture about motherhood is that it doesn’t matter how well-prepared you are or how much you want something, there are many things that are out of your control.

So, my motherhood phase has mostly been a big learning process. Discovering a new me, experiencing an indescribable love but also overcoming many fears that I didn’t even know I had.

The truth is that becoming a mom has created a total before and after in the way I see life. This is why I created my blog, apprenticelife101. I am really happy to be part of this amazing community that allows us to open and share our experiences. It’s an excellent way to remind ourselves that we are not alone in this process.

Since then, my philosophy has been seeing life, leaving aside its prejudices and opening my mind to new ideas. Realizing that no matter how hard we try we are always apprentices in life.  And that as women, moms, professionals, and wives, being superheroines is not possible. And we shouldn’t feel bad about it!

I am really proud to be part of the Miami Moms Blog team. I’m happy to share anecdotes, tips, and challenges I’ve overcome but also how to find a balance between work and motherhood. But above all things, my goal is to teach how important it is to be kind to yourself. Appreciating the great things that you conquer every day is key in motherhood.
