About Me


My name is Erica. I was born and raised in South Texas, on the border by the sea. The ocean is my home, my playground, and my church, and I can’t imagine being without it. I have a deep passion for the natural world. Plants, animals, rocks… I want to know everything about them. This led me to pursue a degree in Physical Geography, which I earned from the University of Hawaii in 2008. Three years later, I earned a law degree from the same school. Now I’m an attorney and mama to three wonderful babies: a 5-year-old named Evita, a 2-year-old named Damian, and a new baby named Ariela.

This blog began as a modern baby book, a way to keep family and friends updated on my pregnancy journey. It has expanded into a way to document life and hoard memories. To give advice and take advice. To say, “I was here.” Sometimes I have a lot to say. Other times I let pictures do the talking. These are my adventures. These are my narratives to the sea.

  1. Following you now on Instagram and Twitter =) The only other thing I’m on is BlogLovin’ only because some blogs I can’t link to my Google Friend Connect. I’m trying to move them all over, but it’s a bit of a challenge.

  2. Yay!What a beautiful blog and a great story. Can’t wait to soak it all in. Congrats on your baby girl. Evita is such a beautiful name as well. I had my first child last year, a boy named Xavier. Love of my life – next to the hubby of course. I often mention him in my blog as well. Please do stop by and become a follower – in between diaper changes and trying to figure out where next in the world you’ll be of course. What an adventure!
