¡Saludos Desde Viña Del Mar, Chile!

¡Hola hola!
It´s been over a week now. Lots going on...I was freelancing just before traveling, then I had to actually get myself organized and packed for my six week trip home.
And here I am now, in Viña del Mar, Chile. It´s winter here, but think California style winter. Sunny and damp some days and cloudy, dark and heavy rain on other days.

I haven´t been able to travel in three years so I had to make the most of it and come for much longer. The Mr. is coming in a few weeks but I miss him! And I am so happy that Little M can further develop his Spanish and have it spoken to him by more than just my mother and I.
The first few days are always a bit overwhelming. Little M was so bad, literally jumping off the sofa´s and wouldn´t leave my side. He was a total nightmare, but now is more calm and realizing he has about a thousand relatives who are all coming to see him.
I know the winter here very well, so I packed both light and heavier pieces. Of course this very busy mamá had to dress for the occassion. I even bought some sweet boots that I will show off this week.
So far, it has been sunny and warm and I´ve been able to wear my flats. But it quickly gets cold once the sun goes down. My colored jeans have been a total hit and everyone has been quite impressed with my weight loss (22 lbs with Medifast!) and for some reason my hair (mostly the bangs) have been a topic of conversation among the women. However, it´s all been positive!
I´ll be going to Santiago soon (the capital) and I am really excited about visiting El Museo de la Moda (Fashion Museum) that I have heard so much about. I´m also looking to meet up with some blogger and social media types here in Chile. I´m curious to see how brands here are embracing bloggers, digital campaigns and social media as a profession in general. So if you know of anyone, let me know!
In the meantime, I am enjoying my family and letting them enjoy Little M. Afterall, he has two sets of very happy great-grandparents who adore him.
¡un beso grande!
