I am writing this episode's blog from Bath, England. I am taking a much needed and overdue vacation with my parents. This trip was supposed to have taken place in May, but as you will see in future episodes, I had to postpone it.
I will say it has been wonderful to spend time with them, and my only suggestion to all who read this is value every moment you have with your family, because life is so precious, and you never know when it can be taken away from you. That is why I treasure every moment with them and work hard to be able to spend quality time with them. Enough said about that, because I could just go on and on about them... Seeing Romain and Joanna "having the talk" showed a side of Joanna that was vulnerable and heartfelt. It is so easy for other people to judge, but seriously, how many people haven't done something like this or worse due to a little too much alcohol, or for any other reason? We are all human and make mistakes; it is the strong people that learn from them and move forward. That is what I admire about her.
Adriana seemed uncomfortable at first to take topless pictures, but wow, she really got comfortable in her skin quickly!
Watching me have that conversation with my mom brought me back to that moment in time. I have always loved and respected my mom for telling me how she feels, but also allowing me to make my own decisions, and at times, my own mistakes. We sometimes need to stumble over our own feet, no matter how much a parent wants to protect us. I have chosen to focus on my career first, but I feel that now I am ready for the next step in my life, which is to start a family. I'm just not sure when or even with whom... I leave that up to God.
I must say that it broke my heart watching Lisa and Lenny talk about not being able to
have kids yet. Lisa has become one of my dearest and closest friends since we met, and I can only imagine what she is going through. I'm sure that she will receive that blessing when it's meant to happen. She and Lenny definitely deserve it!Now you see me and Adriana at the Arte Americas art exhibit. If you haven't noticed by now, I am very extroverted and sociable, and I love to have fun and laugh. Life is serious enough, so why not have fun? Some people may take it the wrong way if they don't know me well enough, but one thing is for sure: I am a very loyal friend, and I would bend over backwards to help and support a friend in need. I was happy to be there for Adriana, and I was having fun being there.
Now that whole situation with Carlos Cruz-Diez... Seriously? Beating her to the tweet? Why was she making it a competition about who tweeted first? How old are we again? Anybody that knows me knows that I love taking pictures of anyone and anything, whatever the subject matter. Call it my hidden passion. I studied French in school, but unfortunately have forgotten a lot of it (but now I'll have a chance to practice the few words I remember while in Paris). I stepped back while she spoke to him, because I knew she would want to pick his brain and get to know him better. I never heard or noticed that he had told Adriana that he didn't like taking pictures. Of course after Adriana took a picture with him, I figured, why not? If this man is famous, his picture might be worth something one day. I didn't see any harm in it. I have many people I admire not only in my career but all around. I will say that at least for me, the only person I would kneel down for would be the Pope. I had a chance to attend the exhibit the following day with some other friends, but I chose to go and support Adriana, since Lea and I were the only ones she had invited.
I have always known that quality is better than quantity, and when it comes to friendships in this group of women, I couldn't agree more! Lisa and Joanna are amazing women, and I am honored to call them my true friends.
The only thing I am going to mention about Ana is that it’s interesting how she has twisted her tweets around... Maybe she is starting to suffer from some dementia? During the time that Rodolfo and I were broken up, he tweeted a picture of a local Cuban restaurant and stated that he was craving Cuban, hence the picture of the Cuban restaurant. Is she so egotistical to think that he was taking about her? Get over yourself, Ana! Not only that, but the reality is that once she saw the tweet, she replied to him that she was "craving Mexican." Now who's the one flirting now? And with a supposed boyfriend? Hmm. It seems like not everything is what it appears to be. I remember someone saying that people in Miami were just "smoke and mirrors." Oh, I get it now, Ana. Enough said.Joanna looked amazing at the winter party. It's hard to discern what the truth is with Romain. People will love to create rumors out of jealousy or insecurities. Joanna just needs to listen to herself and her instincts. Time is the best factor. I truly believe that he loves her with all his heart.
Well, I have to go to sleep, because tomorrow is a long day. We will be visiting Stonehenge and Lacock village, used in the filming of Harry Potter and Pride and Prejudice. Looking forward to another great day with mom and dad. Blessings to all!
