I’d like to use my blog to reflect on all of the positive things that being a part of The Real Housewives of Miami brought to my life. Being a part of the show taught me many valuable life lessons, which have made me a stronger person, and for that I am grateful.
RHOM became a wonderful vehicle for my mother to bring laughter to so many people. I feel that the show has been an excellent outlet to keep my mother busy during a time when the excitement of everyday life has slowed down for her. The show brought me and my mother closer together, and through this adventure of working together her coffee, Havana Elsa, was created. It was such a thrill to make my mother’s dreams of having her own coffee come true. See it here: www.HavanaElsa.com.
Havana Elsa: From Mama to Coffee Maven
As I reflect back on my favorite moments this season, I truly enjoyed the time I spent in the house in Bimini with Ana, Alexia, and Adriana. It was so wonderful to just be the silly, playful girls that we are. I remember Ana and I fighting over who would get to share the room with Alexia (inside joke). Ana won, of course, like the savvy attorney that she is! Ana was making us these amazing drinks all day long that had about four different liquors and several different fruit juices. It truly was the nectar of the Gods. The three of us had a pillow fight that started out fun but soon turned competitive. Then I jumped so high on the mattress I hit my head on the ceiling fan. AHHH good times! Adriana would come out and model 52 outfits for us before each outing which was very funny. Then we would all jam in the bathroom to do our makeup. Ana does amazing eye shadow application and I was the designated fake eye lash applicator. It had been almost a year since Alexia’s son’s accident, so spending a few days alone with her, just us girls, was very special.
Last, but not least, I met three new women that I probably would have never known had we not shared the experience of working together. In closing, I want to wish everyone a positive and joyous 2013. If you dream BIG and believe, great things will come to you!
Lots of love and best wishes for an amazing 2013!
