Hello world!

Welcome to Who I was meant to be. With this blog, I wish to share with the world the life of a wife and mother who now understands that being perfect was not part of her original design. Day by day I’m learning how to enjoy life, laugh about my mistakes and when I fall, just get up and try again. Let’s enjoy this journey called life.

Just us girls to the city – totally out of my comfort zone.

New York City is full of life, lights and good food. A wonderful place to visit alone, with family or friends. I took a 24-hour trip to N.Y.C. with a few of my girlfriends. I must confess, I didn’t know this was going to be such a great trip.

We drove down early afternoon to avoid traffic and 1 ½ hr. later, YES, we arrived.
