If You Knew Me...

In learning to know other things, and other minds, we become more intimately acquainted with ourselves, and are to ourselves better worth knowing.Philip Gilbert Hamilton

Hola my beautiful superdeedooperdee Readers!  Hope everyone's been having a Fantabulous Fun-filled Friday!  This morning as I was browsing blogs to read (instead of packing for Miami) I took a peek over at one of my favorite blogs by Helen of Eat. Enjoy. Live. and came across a post titled "If you knew me" by Al of Traffic Jelly.  It seems that its been floating around blog sphere and like Helen I agree it is a good way to re-connect with your readers by introducing bits in pieces of a side of yourself that perhaps you have not shared as of yet.  Here is my...

If you knew me...

You'd know that I own a pair of Betty Boop pj's and that she is my idol and my all time fave Diva.

You'd know that I am a morning person and that I can fall asleep at 2 a.m and still be up at 5 or 6:00 in the morning to welcome in a fresh new day.

You'd know that I LOVE butterflies and that I always mark all my pictures of me with a small black butterfly which has a very special and significant meaning to me. 

You'd know that I LOVE to write and talk a lot!

You'd know that I have an exquisite sensitivity to other people's feelings thus making me a very loving, patient and understanding person.

You'd know I share an unbreakable bond with 3 kindred spirits I refer to as my Precious Treasures... definitely can never leave this one out when sharing about me!

You'd know that I may be considered an emotional person.  Oh, okay, fine I am an emotional person and I cry at tender moments or at anything that touches my heart even in cartoon clips.

You'd know that I am very passionate, strong-willed, determined and not a quitter!

You'd know that I am a lover and a fighter!

You'd know that I feel everything, see everything and speak everything with mi corazon (my heart) Siempre! Always!

You'd know that I am coqueta (Spanish for flirtatious) and that I LOVE my sexy Cubanishi curves!

You'd know that just as much as I am sweet, I am hot & spicy and that I have my moments of whips, blind-folds and is my right!

One of my drawings Hot & Spicy
(colored pencil on paper)
You'd know that my nickname in high school was Pretzels...use to eat it all the time.

You'd know that one of my favorite places in the whole wide world is the book store preferably the little neighborhood bookstores because they have this old-fashioned charm about them that attracts and draws in my soul making me feel right at home.

You'd know that I believe in true love and that I am a sucker for a good romance book...a big sucker and yes I cry here too! 

You'd know that I foolishly believe in happy endings and fairy tales.

You'd know that I am very humble, kind, generous, loving, tender, caring and have a sincere serving spirit.  As a matter of love, the approach I apply to everything I do in life is how may I serve?

You'd know that I prefer bread over sweets; sun over moon; sunrise over sunset; truth over religion.

You'd know that I have no idea if I prefer beach over mountain or mountain over beach because I've never seen a mountain but would LOVE to one day be at the peak of one so that I can finally know.

You'd know that I LOVE Spanish Guitar music, reggae, disco funk, soft rock, jazz, new age and zen.

You'd know that I prefer to greet with my Spanish Hola rather than just hello, hi or wuzup, etc...

You'd know that I had a very ackward yet learning experience at Skydiving!

You'd know I am not afraid to be myself and that I LOVE to laugh and at times my silliness creeps out more often than less because it's my nature and I just can't help it!

You'd know that I have a fave quote by Horace (Ancient Poet) "Mix a little foolishness with your serious plans; it's lovely to be silly at the right moment" and that the thing is that I'm still just trying to figure out those right moments.

I found this to be refreshing for the soul since it made me tap deeper into myself discovering things about myself I haven't thought about in a while.  Hmmm....I wonder where I stashed the handcuffs.  Seriously, this was a fun and interesting experience for me and I appreciate YOU sharing it with me.

Perhaps you'd like to give it a try and post your very own "If you knew me".  I'm sure your readers will appreciate it.  I know I will.  So I highly encourage you to do it!  I'll be watching out for it!
