I’m Angie, a working girl for an awesome start up company, owner of lavidaBLUE, first-time mom to the cutest baby boy Cayden, and fiancee to the most amazing man to ever walk this earth, Steven Burks.
Since I get asked all the time about my ethnicity, my dad is Black/Italian and my mom is 100% Salvadoran baby! I grew up with my single mom so I tend to lean toward my Hispanic side and find myself having “Latina mom” tendencies like trying to feed you all the time, speaking Spanglish, blasting Marc Anthony while cooking or cleaning… I’m basically your walking stereotype.
I’m originally from North Hollywood, California but moved to good ol’ Utah a long time ago so I claim both states. I was supposed to move to Miami after college for a job in news, but as fate would have it, ended up staying due to circumstances that led me to meet the love of my life. After being together for 2 years, we got pregnant, and now 3 years later we’re engaged.
I created La Vida Mom as an open journal to express my thoughts on becoming a mother and fiancee, all while handling work and business without losing myself. Welcome to my mom life!
Also, please don’t use my pictures without asking. I’m usually cool about stuff like that, and chances are if you do ask I’ll say yes. But I feel a type of way when people use them without asking and then I see them elsewhere without credit.
