Who Am I?

Good Question. I'm Panamá-Mama...

Taking on the world, one day at a time

I grew up mainly in the what was the former Canal Zone in the Republic of Panamá until I married my college sweetheart and made Arkansas home.

Now, I’m an urban homesteader trying to live the “green” life in the city. As mom to four awesome people from preschool to post-college ages I have insight into many stages of motherhood. We try to travel as much as possible to learn more about this beautiful world.

Still dreaming of empty beaches, ceviche, jungle hikes, surfing, and ocean breezes.

No, I’m not photogenic, but my kids are pretty durn cute.
