Before I created My Beautiful Adventures, I travel blogged for many years on Travbuddy. Through that platform I was able to meet a lot of extraordinary people all over the world who are as passionate for exploration as myself. One of those travel addicts, Cata, became one of my closest friends. We have traveled in the United States and Colombia (her home country) together and have been there for each other through breakups, Graduate School, marriages, and now her latest grand adventure: motherhood. Without a doubt, she is one of my soul mates in life. This past June, when my husband Lucas and I visited Miami for his Birthday, afterwards we took a quick road trip to Tampa to visit her, her husband, and their beautiful new baby girl Emma. It was love at first sight for me and Lucas! To document our special day together, I decided to do an impromptu photo shoot at lunch and then later in the park. Watching Cata interact with her daughter made me adore my friend even more. I cannot believe how much our lives have changed and the precious child she has created. I can only hope that one day I will be half as good of a mother as she is. . .
