Crafty and creative at heart, one of my biggest passions is writing. Discovering new DIY projects and uncovering the most current trends and ideas in the world of weddings is something that really interests me. I regularly host dinners at my place and enjoy decorating and preparing every detail down to a special playlist just for that night and if it's a big... group I will make place cards you can take home. I am a list maker, always filling paper with ideas. I am half Honduran, half American, and lived over 12 years in Germany and Spain. I have an international point of view that will hopefully inspire you. View more
