Welcome! I am Dariela, a Venezuelan mom and graphic designer and currently reside in San Diego, California.
In 2001 I came to Los Angeles, California after living in Mexico City for three years. Mexico gave me the opportunity for professional and personal growth re-enforced by the taking in of fascinating culture and customs.
Since I was young I was attracted to traveling, not only to get to know different parts of the world but to learn from other cultures and “broaden my horizons” (as my mom would always tell me). Now I feel very fortunate to experience a time of great possibilities in a country where there are many opportunities to achieve any dream. For me it is very rewarding to fulfill the roles of mother, wife and friend without having to do without my career and hobbies. At the end of the day, family is the most important part to me and there is nothing better than to share everything with them.
My family consists of my husband Derek, whom I met after two months of arriving in Los Angeles, our 9 year-old son Adrian and five-year-old girl Maya. This blog was born in 2007 driven by the need to share the experiences as a mother and photos of my first-born son, Adrian.
Now, 9 years later I have a site that is full of family adventures, photography, culture, stories, and above all, a blog that captures inspiration with an original and unique touch. Feel free to browse through it and leave me comments, I would love to meet you and talk some more! Gracias!
En el año 2001 llegé a Los Angeles, California después de haber vivido 3 años en la Ciudad de Mexico donde me dediqué a desarrollar la carrera de diseñadora gráfica que ya había comenzado con muy buen pié en Venezuela. México me dió además de la oportunidad de crecimiento profesional, la posibilidad de integrarme a una cultura fascinante y de absorber modalidades y costumbres que en retrospectiva contribuyeron también a un gran crecimiento personal.
