Tuesday Badinage: July 19, 2016

By: Gabriela Yareliz Yesterday, I got to go to the prettiest part of Long Island. It was gorgeous; one of those neighborhoods that makes you want to bake apple pies, wear an apron, and buy matching napkin rings for a long table. There was a large park with lots of green grass and a gorgeousContinue reading “Tuesday Badinage: July 19, 2016”

Sunday Girl: March 20, 2016

By: Gabriela Yareliz Semana Santa (Holy Week) begins. Easter weekend is coming. Easter and Passover always reminds me that God can do and does the impossible. It’s a reminder of His crazy love for us; a reminder that redemption has been completed; a reminder to rest in His provision and leading. I haven’t been resting much, literally, (IContinue reading “Sunday Girl: March 20, 2016”

That Boy

“Many boys will bring you flowers. But someday, you’ll meet a boy who will learn your favourite flower, your favourite song, your favourite sweet.

Monday Inspiration: September 7, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz September glory days are here. I am sitting here in a cozy but loud coffee shop.

This Month’s Picks: November 2014

By: Gabriela Yareliz November, November, November. You have given me unexpected gifts, and for that I am grateful. I was pressing some  little purple flowers in a book, and I thought, it’s funny how something so temporary, like a flower, can have its beauty preserved, even after it’s lifeless. I once had a discussion with a friend who said there wasContinue reading “This Month’s Picks: November 2014”

The Gardens at St. Luke in the Fields, Hudson Street

By: Gabriela Yareliz One of Manhattan’s loveliest places is tucked away at 487 Hudson St. I have spent many evenings at the Gardens at St. Luke; sometimes they are empty, sometimes they are full of children playing, while the mothers and nannies sit in a circle on the grass surrounded by strollers. The guardians occasionallyContinue reading “The Gardens at St. Luke in the Fields, Hudson Street”

How I Found Bmore Charm

By: Gabriela Yareliz The first time I went to Baltimore, I saw the harbor area. It’s a beautiful area with little boats and bright lights. Very reminiscent of La Rochelle, France, except it misses the old-time charm La Rochelle undoubtedly has. I stood under an umbrella with my host who was attempting a Skype sessionContinue reading “How I Found Bmore Charm”
