Monday Mood😎🌴

A post shared by A Life Called Miami (@a_life_called_miami) on

Hello and Happy Monday! It’s been quite some time since I have done an introduction soooo, HELLO and welcome to my Instagram abode 😉 My name is Ann and I’ve been married to my sweet husband @rickueno for going on 8 years.  I am a step-mom to Zach and mom to Zoey.  Zoey came after going through 4 miscarriages…we prayed and prayed and had faith and God gave us the most amazing daughter after 3 and a half years of much pain and heartache.  DON’T GIVE UP! We live in Miami but make no mistake…I am just a farm town girl born and raised in Ottawa, Illinois.  Though, over 10 years of living in Chicago probably helped this transition into the 305.  And I have to say, I ADORE it here and I have met some of the best people on earth in this crazy beach city. About 11 years ago I gave my life to Jesus after a messy divorce, an identity crisis and hitting one too many road blocks in my life.  Best decision I’ve ever made. I attend, serve, lead and design at @vouschurch here in Miami – finding a home church has made all the difference! If you are reading this and don’t have a home church, my encouragement to you is to find one.  I wouldn’t be here today or be the woman I am apart from church.  #fact I have spent nearly 16 years in digital marketing in Corporate America, almost all in the hotel industry.  From @preferredhotels to @spg and now to @bcvsocial, hotels are my jam and travel is in my heart and soul! Simultaneously, I have had my interior design business/side hustle for years – Ann Ueno Interior Design (I know, so creative, right?!). The last four years it has grown and I am BEYOND thankful for that!  My dream is to make the cover of @dominomag…nbd. I love cooking and Julia Child is basically my hero.  Nothing makes me happier than having intimate dinner parties at my house.  I dream of writing a book one day, we shall see if that is in God’s plans for me.  And, of course, creating new spaces or editing existing ones lights my soul on fire. THIS IS ME!  Follower of Jesus, wife, working mom, and a bunch of things in between.  THANK YOU FOR FOLLOWING!  I love watching this community grow and I am grateful for all the love and support here.
