Another Garibay Adventure… A possible life change

I never thought I’d leave Sacramento. It’s where we planted our seed, it’s where we became we. Our son was born there, my mom was there. It’s where my sister and brother were, it’s where my nephew and niece were. But we left. We made a decision one day, packed our bags and off . . . → Read More: Another Garibay Adventure… A possible life change

The People Along Life’s Path

We finally escaped from our house and got on the road late last night. By the time we arrived at our first hotel at 1am I thought I was going to die of exhaustion. Have you ever gotten to the point when driving late at night where you think, if I just close my . . . → Read More: The People Along Life’s Path

I Figured Out Why

I read a quote on Twitter talking of how there are 2 important days in everybody’s life ~ The day we are born and the day we figure out why.

It reminds me a lot of {this post}.

But more importantly it reminds me that I am a mom, and my life has taken . . . → Read More: I Figured Out Why

Time and life

I have not been able to find enough time in my days lately. My to do list is overwhelming, my project lists are overwhelming and I sometimes feel like I’m failing as a mom. At the end of the day I sigh and wish I had taken videos of Ella’s cuteness, of the things . . . → Read More: Time and life

I love Garibay Soup

I started this blog back in November of 2007 for the sole purpose of updating family members on our life away from them. I was reflecting back on how much bigger it has become. What new purposes it serves, and how I’ve grown from it.

I have had the most amazing privilege of getting . . . → Read More: I love Garibay Soup

Being Thankful

Do you ever wake up in the morning happy to be awake early? Happy to be alive? Looking forward to all of the days activities…. even if it’s just about getting housework done? This has been me for the past couple of days. It’s weird.

I get excited when I wake up and can’t . . . → Read More: Being Thankful

The Secret… some Saturday inspiration

A couple of years ago I picked up the book The Secret. I couldn’t put it down. I probably finished that book within a day, and started to apply the things that were inside of it to my life. The outcome was phenomenal.

It’s been a couple of years, and I know that I’m . . . → Read More: The Secret… some Saturday inspiration

Some days I tell ya

The potty training with Ella has amazingly been going pretty well. She tells me when she has to pee pee and we go running to her little toilet. I did not expect this AT ALL. I expected her to not understand the concept ~ she’s not even 2!

Today was one of those days . . . → Read More: Some days I tell ya


I went to Jayden’s conference and left so pleased. My little man isn’t doing too bad, and I kept looking at the report card with this warm feeling in my heart…. he’s doing so great!

So, the fact that he’s doing great in school isn’t a fake, but that report card was! We got . . . → Read More: IT WAS FAKE!!

Life for us….

Life in the Garibay home has been a bit different lately. There are things that have happened that I can’t yet discuss on my blog due to privacy issues (I’m not sure who reads it!!)

I will say this… I’m exhausted, sad and I just hope that everything turns out the way God . . . → Read More: Life for us….
