In less than 48 hour, we will be ringing in the New Year. I will be in my Tio Felo’s house in New Jersey sipping on something when the countdown begins. And let’s not forget to wear esa tangita (amarila?) to bring us good fortune in 2011! Whatever Walter Mercado says goes!
2010 went by in a menopausal hot flash. I started off the year in the hospital, sobbing over the loss of my Tia Argentina while rejoicing over the news that I was going to be a first time Tia. Life is ironic, isn’t it? It brings us devastation and delightful surprises simultaneously.
Nila Anais was a delightful surprise.
And then there is Love Trips (this is the purpose of the post after all). In 2010, I grew tremendously as a creative being. Aside from being the editor of Lovemionline, an event planner, a relationship blogger for The Hookup on Latina.com, a web developer, a comedic entertainer and then some, I also buckled down to finish Love Trips (the book).
So what will 2011 bring? More greatness, ambition, and focus, plus a lot of love (I can feel it in my pepa™)! I am going to finish the first draft of Love Trips by my set date. That I am certain of. With that said, I am off to finish another story before going on a tangita shopping spree. Enjoy your New Years wherever you will be.
