My life is a beautiful tapestry threaded with contradictions. My dad was the cook and nurturer. I was raised to be the professional woman I became (I've worked for companies of the caliber of The Wall Street Journal). Having children turned my world upside down. From manicures every week I became one of those moms that makes bread from scratch. It is not unusual for me to be taking notes from an interview while surrounded by piles of laundry waiting to be folded.I know I'm Latina when... i wouldn't survive without at least one telenovela a day!
