Happy times all in ONE weekend

What a weekend and I’m so excited to share it with you!

The reason for my existence:

Eden and Katy

Kids 2

Homemade crepes, scones, mango fruit salad…mouthwatering!

Easter brunch

  Two little beings had birthdays. These beings belong to some of my closest friends. I feel fortunate to have them in my life.

A special picture with the three of us. We were once children attending Primary in our beloved Paraiso Ward in Barranquilla. We traveled north and settled here. Our memories will always keep us together. We are FAMILY.

Three Barranquilleras bringing the sugar and spice of my people to Utah. Don’t ask me how we ended up here if the beach and palm trees are the ones who make us thrive…


DJ Vikingo. I used to know him as a young boy starting his debut at church dances, etc. He has turned into one of the most sought after dj’s in Utah.

Know this guy???

Now I DO!!!! He is Raul Acosta from Oro Solido. I grew up dancing the music they play. Here in Utah with his band for a concert.

Don’t laugh, this video is so old, the swimsuits, the clothing…go way back…


  1. Hello Vivian! Thank you for the encouraging comment you left in my blog. Soon I know I will be okay.

    I love the colors of your kid's outfits. They are so colorful yet so refreshing to the eyes. The same as with the Toy Story party materials. Blue and green are my favorite colors. The picture of green and blue relaxes me too. And based from the pictures, I know the kids had a great day.

    Wishing you a great week ahead!
