I'm back!

Hey All,
 I'm back & running with this. I LOVE blogging and losing myself in positive thoughts, diy projects & my family. Here are some updates. :)

 Here I am. SUPER pregnant in March 2015. Waiting on the arrival of my beautiful second baby! Check out Rae Wade Photography. She was amazingly kind & sweet!

Isabella Knittel graced us with her presence March 23, 2015. I had an awesome experience & an entire blog post on my natural birth experiences will be coming up soon! 

As if this little face wasn't a handful.. I now am EXTREMELY busy with two! Photography by me! :) heheh 

Chris and I also had our FIRST house built! Another blog post to follow this one ;) 
Let's just say "holy paper work!" 

I recently took up photography and have fallen in LOVE with boudoir photography! The confidence, poise & natural beauty in us women seems to glow when we're in the spotlight & feeling beautiful! Nothing beats a little chocolate, sparkling cider, getting your hair done, make up done & feeling like a queen! All while I'm able to capture the beauty of that moment. 

& Here's our life now! 
The beautiful west coast on the gulf of mexico coast! 

This little one is her daddy's girl! They are the best of friends. To see a father & daughter bond is the most precious thing I've ever seen!

Interesting ! Always Do your research !

I just wanted to look up my last name and do more research ! All this time I have told people "yeah i'm mexican" when in reality I'm ACTUALLY considered LATINA. My dad used to always tell me "you're of latin decent kiddo.." I'd be like huh? whatever that means.

 See below !

Is the lastname MARTINEZ latin or mexican?

Martìnez is Spanish. The ez suffix in Spanish surnames means "son of." Most Spanish surnames with the ez suffix are of Visigothic origin - González, Gómez, López, Álvarez. But there are some which are based on Judeo-Christian names such as Ibáñez, son of Juán (John) and others such as Martínez which means son of Martin. Martin may be a variant of Marcial which comes from Mars the Roman god of war. In that sense Martinez is "Latin."

Most Mexicans have Spanish surnames. A real Mexican surname would be Moctezuma or Coyote.


What's the Difference between a MEXICAN and LATINO?

A Latino is somebody from Latin America. A Mexican is somebody from Mexico. Because Mexico is in Latin America Mexicans are latinos, but not all latinos are Mexicans. I should know this since I am Mexican-American.

Interesting huh ! The most interesting part is understanding more about who you are and who your ancestors are. Also, having better knowledge and understanding of where you come from & what your roots are always is interesting. Plus ! You're learning something new! 

Short story... 

 I was never the type to care to learn more or figure out more beyond what people have ever told me,but since dating my smart & curious boyfriend Chris ! Who I've mentioned plenty I've realized I need to do my own research and get curious! Google things, read things, Figure things out ! When Chris and I first started dating I always thought "ugh you're so argumentative, and always having to research things bugs me,... " BUT ! In reality it was him wanting to know the answer & truth ! Wanting to argue something he believed in. Having an opinion. Something I love MOST ABOUT him now. Something I've picked up on over the course of dating him sometimes it gets me in trouble,but most the time it BENEFITS me ! I enjoy knowing and learning more now. I enjoy being more curious about things & when people say something that I may question I do my own research ! 

Lets brainstorm

So recently I went to the thrift store. Idk what exactly I was looking for but came across a 49 cent cart with lots of random crap! So I picked out two things (: (see below) anyways I'm still trying to figure out what to do ! Ill post the after picture when I'm done !

Trust your struggle

So the picture you see on the left is my tattoo. It's on my forearm and it's a quote that I hold dear to my heart. When I got this tattoo it meant so much to me. I felt like life as I knew it was falling apart around me. Like I had NO ONE. Nothing.  I felt like this would be a symbol forever to me to remind me of the struggle and pain I went through that year. The disappointments dragged on & I was so unhappy. Finally I came to a point where I got over it all. I realized that PAIN is temporary. That pain won't hold me back from working two jobs, my dreams, getting to where I wanted & what I wanted. I promised myself to never allow someone to be the reason for my happiness because with one word, action ETC they could take it all from me. All the time I spent building my confidence back up, my happiness, & relationships someone would be able to take from me in a heartbeat. What I've realized through out everything I've been through in the 22 years I've been alive is that You need to find happiness within yourself, your heart & everything else you do. Because ultimately YOU are responsible for your HAPPINESS. You shouldn't rely on someone else for that. Although I think it's just fine if someone makes you happy that's completely different. I feel like if you are happy with yourself anyone can make you happy as long as you're not relying on them for HAPPINESS nothing can break you down. You're bulletproof in a line of bullets. You're a steel rod being stoned. You're the most confident being there is because YOU'RE HAPPY. You know who you are, What you stand for and what you want in LIFE. & no words, bitterness or anything can take you down ! Just like i said in the beginning pain is a temporary feeling ! Pain BREEDS STRENGTH ! through every struggle comes prevail ! Trust your struggle ! Trust that something better will happen ! Because to be quite honest through every struggle & painful situation i've been through came something BETTER. Something Bigger. 

“People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.” 
― Jim Morrison

                                                    Below are my decorations ! & my costume idea !

"Eleven Hints for Life"

1. It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return.
But what is more painful is to love someone and never
find the courage to let that person know how you feel.

2. A sad thing in life is when you meet someone who
means a lot to you, only to find out in the end that it was
never meant to be and you just have to let go.

3. The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a
porch swing with, never say a word, and then walk away
feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had.

4. It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives.

5. It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an
hour to like someone, and a day to love someone-but it
takes a lifetime to forget someone.

6. Don't go for looks, they can deceive. Don't go for wealth, even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright.

7. Dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go, be what you want to be. Because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.

8. Always put yourself in the other's shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the person too.

9. A careless word may kindle strife. A cruel word may wreck a life. A timely word may level stress. But a loving word may heal and bless.

10. The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

11. Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, ends with a tear. When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you're the one smiling and everyone around you is crying.
