Hello and welcome to my virtual home. My name is Ana Cruz, thanks for stopping in.
I would like to share with you a little about myself. Why start off with this? Simple! If you are like me, you associate yourself with those individuals you know, like and trust. And how are you going to know if you know, like and trust me, until you actually know more about me?

I was lucky enough to marry my high school sweetheart. We met when I was just 16 and Rui 17. We were married at 19 & 20 years old. Getting married that early in life is not something you see much of these day and there are a lot of benefits and challenges to starting a family at a young age. Most challenging; finances, understanding how to handle money, budgeting and staying out of debt. Benefits; Rui and I are 42 years old and our kids are amazing adults what we love spending time with. There is nothing more rewarding than spending time with your children and loving who they have become.
Rui and I have always loved entertaining, from hosting annual family luau’s for their friends and family to hosting wine and cocktail parties with friends. A night at the Cruz house is always one filled with food, drink and lots of laughter.
Discovering the world is now top of my “Life List”. Anyone who knows me, will know that I “have a list for that”, and traveling is no exception. Once a location is decided upon, a list, a map and a journal are started. My collection of travel videos are growing! On my upcoming list is travelling to Machu Picchu, Peru before 2020, taking a photo on the famous tree lined road in Tuscany-Italy, enjoying a sunny day on the dock of a little hut over the water in the Maldives, sleeping under the stars in a glass igloo in Switzerland …let’s be honest, everywhere!
