To mis amigos escondidos: It’s National De-Lurking week. This week bloggers ask those who read their blog but don’t comment, to come out of hiding.

Comments are one of mis cosas favoritas. So, if you read my blog but have never left a comment, I am formally inviting you to leave one today, (though of course, no invitation is needed.) You don’t have to give me your name or even say much at all, or you can introduce yourself and tell me your life story. Tell me why you visit, how you found me, what you’d like to see more of, what language(s) you speak, where you’re writing me from – or anything you want!

I would love to hear from you and be able to personally say “hola”, so don’t be shy!

  1. I subscribed to your blog a few months ago–I love reading about how others (YOU!) deal with collision of cultures. I am a European-American who married a Korean-Peruvian. I am a Spanish teacher in Ohio, but we still get to visit Peru because my hubby’s parents live there.
    Me encanta tu blog, porque lo que compartes refleja muchas veces lo que siento o veo en mi propia vida. Gracias por escribir y compartir con el mundo y conmigo! :)

    • Anna – Wow, Korean-Peruvian, that is just so super chido! I don’t know if I mentioned on my blog before, (maybe only in comments and not in a blog post), but Korean culture is what I was immersed in before I met Carlos. If you reply to this comment, I’d love to know more about how your husband balances Korean and Peruvian culture since they are both so unique and different from each other.

      Because of your profession, I automatically like you. I should get a bumper sticker that says “I <3 Spanish teachers" :)

      Thanks for coming out of hiding. Mucho gusto!

  2. Holaaaa. :]

    I’ve been an avid follower of your blog for the past couple of months, and I love it. I’m definitely a Heinz-57 (Mexican, Spanish, Native American, Italian) and I’ve been having the struggle of my life trying to finally gain Spanish fluency.

    I’m a junior in college and am about to spend the next 4 months “studying” (jajaja) in Mexico, and I’m going to continue following your blog because I appreciate the variety of topics you cover, and I can relate on a certain level to the duality of a multi-racial experience (whether one is multi-racial or engaged in a committed relationship with someone outside their own race).

    Espero que te pases super bien en este nuevo año y también que sigas escribiendo. :]
    Te deseo lo mejor!
    Ashley :]

    • Hola Ashley :) …Laughing at the quotation marks on “studying” in Mexico. LOL. That will be such an awesome experience. Would love to hear about your adventures. No plan to keep a blog during your travels?

      Mucho gusto y buen viaje!

  3. Well my name is cabrona… i am a active stalker of your blog. I am also a loser… (stalkers whatever).. that has nothing better to do then write this..even though you already know me, and well will continue to know me until you block me :) I love ur blog because i always relate to you! Your my numero uno gringa friend :)

    • Jajajaja!… I so wish we lived near each other, but if you did I think my husband would ban me from being friends with you. I usually behave myself (mostly!) but you somehow manage to bring out the niña mala in me ;) … Honored to be your #1 gringa friend. I totally need a coffee mug that says that now.

    • Jodi, thanks for commenting! It’s good to see that some of the traffic hitting my blog isn’t just random numbers, but people who actually come back, relate to me, and enjoy themselves. It means a lot to me, so thanks for speaking up :)

  4. Not really a lurker either, been reading you for years. I’m finding it harder to understand some posts because of the language barrier, but it’s fun to try to translate! I love it when you post about your kids. :)

    • Hey Rox :) Yes, we’ve both followed each other from blogs that don’t even exist anymore. I’m glad that incorporating more Spanish into my writing over the years hasn’t scared you off just yet.

      When you first met me I was more of a “Mommy blogger,” but those years are fading to some extent. I’ll always be their mother of course, but as they get older I wish to respect their privacy more so I don’t blog about them as much or post photos, etc. I miss those posts too though.

  5. I’ve been following you for at least a year now, and am not a lurker either. I enjoy reading your posts because you never cease to surprise me. I too am married to a Central American, but mi esposo es de Honduras. I love your vida loca! I like the Suegra stories, cooking posts, videos, music ideas, and so much more. Thank you for sharing and being a bright spot in the day :)

  6. I’m a bilingual mom blogger from Santa Ana, CA.
    I stumbled onto your blog about a year ago and I love it! (Especially your stories about your suegra lol)
    Keep up the great job!

    • Hola, Theresa :) Thanks for leaving such a nice comment. Mucho gusto! … Suegra returns in a couple weeks, so more stories will be on the way, I’m sure ;)
