It was just the other day when I turned 30, but here I am, 31. Many things have changed since I transitioned from my 20's to 30's. I can say that I am very grateful for where I am today, but at the same time, I didn't think I'd be where I am today either.… Continue reading 30’s & with Great Love

From the language, culture, and the education I'm attaining in the classrooms, I'm most grateful for the opportunity to utilize these practical skills within the Italian community. My daily life starts out with breakfast set on the dining table. From a variety… Continue reading “Goditi il Momento.”
Belongings packed, tickets purchased, visa at hand, and I'm all ready to check out soon. By God's grace, I'm ready to fly out for a year in Italy and the Philippines. Although exhilarated with the adventure, I'm still a tad bit nervous with what I'll encounter when I arrive. For the past year, I was grateful with the chance to… Continue reading Be More Barrio
