Susana + Alicia {Twins}

2012-01-28 12:51:50

Susana and Alicia were born and raised in Miami, but their parents are from El Salvador. They are passionate about their city and love exploring it together, being biking around trying to discover the most delicious foods or just driving around in their beloved red Toyota called Chimichanga. Although they now live in different cities (Susana studies urban planning in New York and Alicia is a graphic designer in the apparel world of Miami), they freelance together combining their very different strengths in their fields to solve business and development problems in a practical, creative, and personable way. They strive to make the most of their individual careers, but dream of opening up their own business together and give back to the city they love so much. Alicia is obsessed with finding the perfect mozzarella stick and Susana loves key lime pie!

Bird {A poem}

2012-01-26 09:25:09

It was passed from one bird to another,
the whole gift of the day.
The day went from flute to flute,
went dressed in vegetation,
in flights which opened a tunnel
through the wind would pass
to where birds were breaking open
the dense blue air –
and there, night came in.

When I returned from so many journeys,
I stayed suspended and green
between sun and geography –
I saw how wings worked,
how perfumes are transmitted
by feathery telegraph,
and from above I saw the path,
the springs and the roof tiles,
the fishermen at their trades,
the trousers of the foam;
I saw it all from my green sky.
I had no more alphabet
than the swallows in their courses,
the tiny, shining water
of the small bird on fire
which dances out of the pollen.

– Pablo Neruda

Monica + Jose {Engaged}

How they met {according to her}: I met Jose back in 2001, his friend had invited one of my friends to a private concert of Ricardo Montaner, for the Latin Billboards… my friend did not want to go by herself, so she took four of her friends… one of those four was me. By the end of the night, Jose had my phone number… a couple of weeks later, we had our first date (his car was towed away that night!!!) We kept going out as couples with our friends and on my graduation day, we had our first kiss… I could say that we were in love quite quickly (a month after we were going out an “I love you” escaped from his mouth.) Although we broke up in the middle of our relation, when we got back together, we were stronger and more in love than ever. Since then, we have known that we belong to each other and that we could only be truly happy together. It is funny, as we are really different, yet really similar… we complement each other in so many ways… I could not live without him.
