I can honestly say I was not in the least bit expecting to win the Tecla Award I was nominated for this year at the annual Hispanicize event in Miami. I wasn’t even expecting a nomination, actually. When the news first broke on my newsfeed in the form of congratulatory posts from my friends and colleagues, I was just excited to even be on the same list as some of the bloggers I have long admired such as Crafty Chica out in Phoenix. The category was Best Blogger Content Creator, and I thought, “Nombre, I am not even that relevant anymore!” Pero when the moment came and the presenters of the category called out the name of the awardee I was the most shocked person in the room.

Our trip to Miami this year was nothing if not memorable. That’s really the first thing that comes to mind about the 10 days at the end of March and the beginning of April that we spent traveling to and from the 3-0-5. Yeah, I just kind of quoted Pitbull. […]
Well of course there’s good chisme. It’s not a real road trip unless you have chisme to prove it! I’m totally serious about that. No, really. I am. But before we get into the down-low of how everything went down in Miami during our most recent visit for Hispanicize 2017, […]
This is a sponsored post in collaboration with Cooper Tires and DiMe Media. All opinions are my own. I’ll admit, I’ve been known to push the limits when it comes to the performance of my personal vehicles in the past. I depend on my car so much that sometimes I […]
Yes, y’all, it’s official! We’re headed back to Miami this year for Hispanicize 2017!
