Meet Maria, you may recognize her as the face of the blog LaMartinia :) Although it’s only online, I feel like I know her. And this has certainly something to do with her incredible ability to transport you within her stories. I definitely prefer blogs where people write, and are not only a place for beautiful imagery, that’s why Maria’s blog impressed me for the first sight (and her Cuba posts are short stories, perfect for a book :)). I believe she’s a true storyteller. But check out how she describes herself…

М: I spent last month almost only working, weekends included.
V: My October was full of tasks too, but I managed to squeeze a few day for a quick sunny trip to Alicante (see the post from there ;)).
М: We got a dog named Erik.
I filmed a video, surprise for a birthday and we managed to keep it a secret.
A close friend of mine from Brazil was visiting us with her mother and sister.
I signed my big daughter for hip-hop dancing, because she wanted to. She can’t wait for every lesson.
V: Seems like October was good for surprices :) I managed to do one as well = my trip to Spain was a surprise for my mom, she almost broke a bunch of dishes when she saw me walking in their flat in Alicante…
М: Enjoy, life’s a blink of an eye.
