Ilen Maria is Five!

Five years ago, Ilen Maria came to this world to make it better, brighter.

Just like my sister is the best present my mother ever gave me, Ilen Maria is the best present my sister has ever given me. Having a niece is making a best friend forever, and I am so lucky you are mine.

Today, and every day, we celebrate you!

May your life be full of happiness, and may you always know how loved you are.

Happy Birthday, my love!

Tia Ode, Mami y Abu!

PS- We love you! We always will.

1- Believe in magic. It's real.

Remember, "Wit beyond measure is a man's greatest treasure"

2-But most importantly, believe in yourself. No matter what.

Remember: “Well-behaved women seldom make history".

3- You are stronger than you think and, one day, you will rule the world.


"Here's to Strong Women, 

May We Know Them, 

May We Be Them, 

May We Raise Them"

4- Be kind, and happy. The world needs more of that.

Remember: "Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light."  

Albus Dumbledore

5-Read. Books will always be your friends.

As our abuelito, Luis López, used to say "Knowledge takes no space".
