My name is Mariel and this is my little corner on the web.

I am a Public Health Emergency Specialist by day and a dreamer, adventurer, and wannabe chef de cuisine by night/days off.

I was born and raised on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico which explains why I am constantly chasing sunshine and the ocean breeze. 

I am married to my favorite person in the whole world, Sean, and together we call a 100-year-old house in Wisconsin home. 

I love capturing moments with my camera, traveling to places I have wanderlusted and dreamt about, watching the sunrise, falling asleep to the sound of the Coquí, hiking up to a breathtaking view, spontaneous road trips, "discovering" restaurants/local eats, planning/mapping detailed escapades, dancing in the passenger's seat (I am truly the queen of hand/arm dancing), Christmas in Puerto Rico, making lists, and my best friends' babies.

The purpose of this blog is to document this life of mine through photo journals of everyday moments and once-in-a-lifetime adventures. Everyone is welcome to join me on this amazing journey I call life.
