It is no surprise that I gained three life-long friends when I went on the American Latino Expedition as the #LatinaBlogstars last year. There is nothing like really getting to know someone while spending a week on a trip doing things you never thought you would ever do -- hiking up to a national monument in the hundred degree blazing sun, wearing slightly awkward camping gear and jumping off a boat into a crystal blue lake, not knowing how deep it is. Along with Monique Frausto, Nicole Presley and Kathy Cano-Murillo, we laughed, we cried and we built a life-long friendship based on our experience together.
To me, that is the best part of it all.
Ever since we returned from the majestic beauty of Glen Canyon, we've been continually drawn to one another in our creative businesses, family, blogging and life. I love that I have friends who are on their grind -- creating, writing, making delicious food and living life to the fullest. They make me want to do better. I suddenly don't feel so isolated in this blogging world because I know there are real, genuine people behind the computer and the dot coms. And I can bounce any ideas off of these three lovely ladies and I know they'll give it to me straight.
