Baby "Waves" is Here!

Hello !

I'm so excited to announce Baby "Wave's" arrival.

After an extended stay of 41+ weeks in the womb and a somewhat harrowing labor (a story for another day), Baby “Waves” came crashing into our lives the first week of November.

We’re in love, sleep deprived, and juggling like never before — right where you’d expect us to be a couple of weeks into our adventure as a Familia of four.

I'm also happy to report that Toddler “Cosmos” has taken to big brother status quite nicely and already enjoys sharing a lap and story time with his little brother.

As we approach Thanksgiving, I want to say how thankful I am for YOU! 

Thank you for letting me into your inbox each month, for letting me share my poems, projects, challenges and wins. And thank you especially for letting me serve you through this virtual medium.

Being able to share these milestones with you each month makes it feel like I’m working in comunidad -- even when Writer Mamihood Life sometimes gets lonely or overwhelming.

¡Gracias! ¡Gracias! ¡Gracias!

To show my gratitude, I’m linking to various goodies and resources for you at the end of this email. You’ll find links to a video of me reading my favorite November poem, holiday picture book recommendations, my Keep it Simple Coquito Recipe, a sneak peek into my forthcoming workbook, and a discount code for Passion Planner in case you still need to snag your 2020 planner.

P.P.S. Sharing is caring: Please share this email on social media and/or forward it to the readers, writers, educators, parents, and lovers of all things Puerto Rican in your life!
