After falling asleep sometime after 3:30am, I woke up at 7:30 this morning and eagerly got out of bed. After washing up, walking my friend’s dog, I drove to H-E-B. I asked for 20 pink balloons and picked up some pan dulce, a sparkly candle, and confetti poppers.
I came home and cleaned up as quickly as I could and the welcomed my mom, my sister oti, niece Lexi, the babies Nana & Rudy and Steph. We made coffee and turned on the cumbias.
At precisely 9:58 am I went on IG live and welcomed a few hundred people into my home. What seemed like 3 seconds later, I hit publish on my new website, we popped the confetti, and the sparkler was blazing.
I felt the love today, both from the people physically present in the room, and all those that joined me online. Some of my best friends and family came through. People I admire, people I went to school with. It is amazing.
For a minute I thought, why do I always have to do the most? Lol. But, like, why not? These moments are fleeting and I plan to savor them all. This is a big day, my life is pink and yellow and all the shades of glitter. I want to celebrate that & remember these moments always.
Thank you to everyone that has shared my site, shared in this day, shared their well wishes. I see you.
