Okay so the title is kind of overboard! But sometimes I feel that you really don’t believe me when I tell you how grateful that I am to have you all as my amazing readers and that your input here is greatly appreciated, needed and wanted. Today I am going to share with you some things about me, Because I Love You!
I am going to give you a little background on me and how I roll. (This is difficult! Who likes to sit around and tell people why
they are so awesome they do what they do!)
I am a ginger, yep that is right. I am a red headed, freckle faced, light skinned Latina! Nope it wasn’t always easy being me and that is why I am the way I am and the person I am today. Being made fun of only gave me a thicker skin(not literally that is the Latina in me!) and made me realize that what other people thought of ME & my looks didn’t matter it was how I acted and presented myself that was key.
When I was younger my mom and dad were always terrified that I would get hurt. Not just because I was a little dare devil but because I was really outgoing!
If we were all standing in a quiet room together right now, I would be the one talking really loud, making jokes and trying to lighten the tension. Shit, I might even go on stage and get the microphone to get the ball rolling(: (That is if they had a stage & microphone where we were.) Ah yes, and I have a potty mouth:(
I have always told people and continue to tell people when they first meet me, “You may not know if I am joking or serious, you will either think I am a total b*&$# or a really cool chick but wait until you really get to know me, the real me to decide.”
I may not be everyone’s taste and that’s okay. I love to joke, I love to make and hear people laugh, I love to hear about people’s lives, I love to help people. And yet, I get scared, I cry, I get mad, I am NOT perfect, I am thick & love it, I am the second to the oldest child. I don’t like peas. I hate that I have cancer! I love my son and family more then life itself. I would give you the shirt off my back. I am a doer & not a sayer. I may say, “If you need anything call me,” but don’t surprised when I just show up & do it-whatever it is that I have to do.
I always laughed and made fun of my dads quotes: “Don’t sweat the small stuff because it’s all small stuff.” “Be kind, polite and honest.” “Treat others the way you want to be treated.” but they are something that I did live my life by and continue to live my life by.
I know how hard it is to get to know someone from a computer screen and that is why I am writing this post. I may lose some readers, I may gain some readers and that’s okay. I just want you to know who is sitting here typing every week and why I continue to type every week-You!
My point in writing this is to let you know when you visit Living in La La Land or any blog or website for that matter is that there are real people just like you sitting behind those screens treat them the way you would like to be treated.
Oh yeah and because I love being here and writing but sometimes
okay a lot of the time I am wondering if I am giving you what you want. Do you like hearing about my crazy life? Do you like to see the reviews/giveaways that I am doing? Do you like the recipes that I love so much? Do you not like to hear me talk about my crazy family? Do you hate coming here for the tutorials? ETC.
Because I love you and want to continue to make Living in La La Land a place YOU want to come and because you have stuck with me and hopefully will continue to stick with me (especially after ^^ that schtuff up there); I am
