It Was the Best of Times it was the Worst of Times

Well it's basically here...the end of my maternity leave. Monday I head back to the museum, and Chechi to the nanny's house. I'm not looking forward to it...but I think in the end it will be good for both of us.

We did have a lot of fun in our last week though...and it all kicked off with Mommy's birthday weekend. Here are some pictures from the festivities which began on Friday night with 11x3 Birthday Cocktail Hour (literally it was an hour). Saturday we went to the Farmer's Market in the morning, the Coral Gables @Home luncheon on Country Club Prado and then the HistoryMiami gala. On Sunday we headed to church and at night the boys came over for birthday dinner for Mommy and birthday twin, Luis. Melissa and I at 11x3 Cocktails. Since the age of 19, I have been wearing a tiara at my birthday celebration. Below is my favorite picture of Chechi and I at this moment. She's such a beautiful girl.

Here we are at the farmer's market in front of Coral Gables City Hall. I am naturally wearing my birthday t-shirt and sparkly shoes! It was a gorgeous and cool day so we bundled up a bit for our morning outing, Maggie and all.

Next we headed to the Gables@ Home luncheon. Coco joined us and Mimi was there so it was a lovely family gathering.

Out of order...but saving the sassiest pictures for last...the HistoryMiami gala at the Surf Club on Miami Beach. The black tie gala was the first for the museum in 70 years...and the best part was that it was on my actual birthday night! Mimi and Babo were both there and that made for a fun night!


  1. Love it1 What a beautiful girl you have. She's such a perfect blend of both of you. I see you both. What good genes... which will, of course, turn into good jeans.

  2. Love the pictures, especially of C^cubed. Sorry the maternity leave is not as long as it should be, but I'm happy your bebesita is happy and healthy :)
