About


Hi there! Thank you for visiting my blog.

My name is Gabriela (you might have figured this one out already), but you can call me Gabby.
I am 27. November baby.
I am from Mexico...like FROM Mexico.
Married my best friend in March 2013 (civil) and October 2013 (church ceremony), who happens to be a native Minnesotan!
After marriage, I moved from Texas to Minnesota. I am still a Texas girl and fan at heart!
My parents are the best in the world. I am so thankful for them.
My sister, Diana is my best girl friend. She is married, too - to a Minnesotan!
I have two younger brothers who are taller than me.
My family calls me "Ale". My middle name is Alejandra.
At the beginning of 2016, we found out we are expecting a little boy! Due October 2016.

I am a pediatric registered nurse. Children + nursing = my passion.
I also teach faith formation (like Sunday school) at my church.
I love reading, cooking, and baking (I am not very good at the last two!).
I love the smell of old books and morning coffee.
I am seriously obsessed with Reese's.
I eat the fries first. My husband and I discovered we both did this the weekend we met!
You must know that I do not eat fish. Or anything that comes from the sea. Only canned tuna.
I love to travel. I've been blessed to travel around Europe and Canada (USA and Mexico, too, of course). I really want to visit Ireland!
My husband and I enjoy road trips to tiny towns and hiking.
I really dislike discrimination against race, nationality, gender, religion, ability to do a task and/or sexual orientation. I've seen and experienced this ignorance while living on the border.

I am crazy in love with my Savior and I am unashamed to let everyone know. I met Him a long time ago, but we began a real relationship on one hot September 2010 night. I continue to know more about Him every day. If you would like, you can read about it here.
I believe that I was called to save myself for my husband. You know what I mean. It doesn't make me better than anyone else. I am far from "pure". But you know? This is how the grace-filled Gospel worked in me and  this is my act of worship.
I was born and raised Catholic. Let me be real with you, I struggle with my faith a lot, but I am slowly falling more and more in love.

Also, here is why I started this blog. If you would like to read that, too.

I am not very fond of small talk. I love getting to know people. So, please stay awhile and let's be friends!

Under Grace,
Gabby
