Hi my dear readers. It breaks my heart to have to write this, but I wanted to share with you that two weeks ago, my beloved husband passed away after a brave 10-month battle with stomach cancer. He was only 34 years-old and had his whole life ahead of him. We are all devastated by this tragedy and there really are no words to describe the immense pain.

He was my best friend, my number one supporter and the best husband and dad. We shared ten amazing years together including eight years of marriage and have a beautiful 2 year-old son.  I take comfort knowing he is not suffering and in pain and he's now with the Lord, but it still doesn't take away the emptiness I feel in my heart. I know though, that with God I will be okay, he gives me strength each and every day.

Fernando, to honor your memory I will be strong for our son, just like I promised you. I will raise him to be a man of God and a man of integrity just like you were.  And although I mourn your loss, I know that's okay too and part of the process. You were one-of-a-kind.

I will be taking a break from blogging, but will have contributors helping me create new content for you. In the meantime, I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your kind messages. It really means a lot.

    I've been a long time reader of yours and admired your work and dedication to the family and passion you have for everything that you did on the blog...and always felt some closeness since I also live in Miami.

  5. OMG Carmen cuando coincidimos en el evento de Orgullosa, me preocupe porque saliste afanada, pero no sabía que estabas pasando por estos momentos tan duros. Un abrazo fuerte y de corazón oro por ti y para que la vida te de toda la fortaleza que necesitas en este momento.

  6. Carmen te he seguido durante los ultimos anos, y creo q contigo descubri el mundo del blogger. Y has sido parte de mi inspiracion y por eso cree mi blog. Y como te he seguido paso a paso y fue una alegria cuando supe q ibas a ser mama, tambien me a dolido mucho cuando supe de la enfermedad de tu esposo. Y ahora no tengo palabras para expresar lo q siento al saber esa triste noticia. Pero le pido a Dios por ti y tu nino q tenga la fuerza para seguir adelante. Dios te bendiga y aunque no te conosco fisicamente te llevo en mi corazon. Sigue adelante y muchos exitos en tu carrera y q tengas sabiduria como madre te lo digo yo que tengo 3 hijos. Un abrazo .
