Porteña: a person who is from or lives in a port city.
My name is Emilia Gazzoni Gaskell. I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina at Sanatorio Agote. We lived in Palermo until we came to the United States in 1989. I grew up in Orange County, surrounded by other Argentine families, that have become such close friends that to call them friends seems impersonal. I refer to them often as my “kinda cousins.” In 2007 I met my now husband. We were “friends,” or so I thought, for a good year before we fell in love! We dated 5 years and got married on January 11, 2013 in Los Angeles on the coldest, most windy day of the year (but at least it was sunny :). We currently live in Orange County with our cat Crosby, Moses, and Alfie, and have a sweet angel baby cat named Tomas. I like to sew and craft, I love throwing a good party, or better yet, decorating any party! I studied Philosophy, Dance, and Pilates in school, and incorporate all three into my daily life. I paint my nails for fun and truly enjoy Lifetime and Hallmark original movies. I hope this blog can teach you something new, or at the very least kill a couple of minutes. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope I can be a good blogger to you.
