“I’m a mom with a business.”

I’m a mom first and an entrepeneur second, and I know this is an assertion I probably share with most of my fellow mompreneurs. I may have as many businesses as I have kids, I may sometimes have a longer to-do list for my work more than for my children, but it is my family who rules  my heart, my mind, my days and my life.

I am happily married to a man who’s been my partner and friend since our college days. We’ve been together more than half our lives, and spend every day together running our businesses together. My husband now runs our events and communications agency, Creative Juice with our team.

We have three children and don’t intend to have more (right, God?:)) We spend our days making most of the time we have with our kids, watching them grow, which is oftentimes bittersweet. In our mind, it was just yesterday when they were this size…

and even if we are ever-present, creating lots of memories with these three guys,

Mactan, Cebu, 2008

they delight us and fill our hearts with joy

Christmas, 2010

we go on new adventures together year after year

Beijing, 2011

time just passes us by.

So we do our best documenting our family experiences, making days count and doing our best to guide them to be good children of God and citizens of the world.

With all I’ve experienced as a mom, I know I am not alone in my needs, wants and concerns, so since 2000, I’ve dedicated most of my time to creating events, publications, and all sorts of activities and engagements for other moms like me. Through Mommy Mundo, we’ve been able get together, learn from each other, and just celebrate the gift of motherhood, womanhood, friendship and mompreneurship!

With my cousin Candice, we also founded a nursingwear brand and a mommy store called Shop Mommy Matters.

With the intention to share knowledge, spread simple joys and laughter, and hopefully inspire other moms, I write in this blog to also  document my life’s moments and memories, snippets of “my mundo”.  Hope you’ll visit often!
