Hi everyone! My name is Kristel and I’m thrilled to join the Disney Baby team. I’m especially excited to represent the Latinas out there. I thought my very first post should be a bit of an introduction, so here we go.
I’m 28 (soon to be 29!) and I’m married to a wonderful man named Alex. We have two adorable children. Liam is our son, he’s two and a half and is full of wit and sass. Isabel is our one-year old baby girl who is sweet as can be. We live in Miami, FL (my family is originally from Nicaragua and my husband’s from Colombia) where my husband works as a video producer and I stay home with the children.
I have a personal blog, Glowing Light, that I’ve been writing in for over six years. It’s so fun to go back and see the journey I’ve been on…from single gal, to married woman, to mother. There have been so many changes over the years, but writing has been a constant in my life.
On my blog I share personal stories about my faith, family, and all the fun we have together. My focus for Disney Baby will be sharing about my culture. Growing up in Miami is great because the Latin culture is alive and well here. I love that the Spanish language can be heard everywhere you go and you’re never too far away from an authentic dish from almost any Latin American country you can think of. I’m glad we can raise our children in this unique city where they will, hopefully, be immersed in the Latin culture and love it just as much as we do.
So join me as I navigate being a mom and being Hispanic (and you can bet there will be a lot of Disney magic thrown into the mix, my kids love Frozen as much as every other kid in the country). It’s going to be a fun journey.
