You wanna know about me? Then, let’s get to it!
My name is Yami and I am originally from Puerto Rico. My husband’s name is Nelson and we have 3 beautiful children together who I stay at home with full time. I like all things white, grey, blue, beige, khaki, sage…. yeah I like a good mix of modern farmhouse/coastal serenity/eclectic yet comfy kind of style (with a little bit of bling here and there)….
It’s complicated….but hey now, what isn’t?!
Over the years I have worked hard on becoming the person I want to be. I am still not there… but much closer, DEFINITELY, much closer. While on this journey, I came to find that I have a true love for arts & crafts, decorating, sewing, cooking, baking, organizing, cleaning and just coming up with some cool
sh stuff off the top of my head!
3 kids in and I still have to watch my mouth. SMH
I am not perfect, by no means. I am not a designer, I don’t know much about web design, I’m an amateur photographer at my VERY best, but all these things fascinate me and bring life to this ever so tired little mother of 3. My children are what gives me purpose. I want to be able to be good at so many things for them. I want to be the best chef, the best baker, the best button sewer…. I want them to look back and think of the nice looking comfortable home they grew up in where we made memories everyday (even though mommy would freak out every time they’d sit on the new couch with their shoes on)….. I want them to LOVE their home.
Heck, I want to love my home!
So this is what my journey here is all about. There are a lot of bloggers and designers out there who have the most perfect, prettiest homes with the most expensive looking furnishings….and don’t get me wrong, I love to look at those pictures for inspiration all day. But me??? I’m just like you. I’m the girl next door, actually The Latina Next Door and like you I’m trying to figure this all out. So, I would love for you to join me while we aspire to get that AWESOME home and wonderful lifestyle for a WHOLE. LOT. LESS.
….Here is a little bit more about my family. My husband is from El Salvador. We met at a Halloween party in 2008. He was the Incredible Hulk and I was Pocahontas, although he swears I was Sacajawea. 2 years later, we married in the Riviera Maya in Mexico on 10.10.10. Yeah, we think it’s cool too! 😉
Here we are on our wedding day…
Our baby girl Natalia followed shortly after in 2012…
And our son Achilles joined us in 2013…. Yes, my hubby’s favorite movie is Troy. Brad Pitt is awesome and don’t you wish you would have thought of it first?
Our last little bundle of Joy, Aracely, joined us in 2015.
Having 3 babies, staying at home full time and working on a home is far from easy, but it has been a wonderful journey so far. I wouldn’t change a thing!
Below is a little look at how much our family has grown….
She’s a little sassy, but has a heart of gold….
This guy (my husband’s mini-me) just wants to do his own thing….won’t even look at the camera!!!!!!
And this sweetheart is just a bundle of fun!
