Hey there, I’m Juanita!
Cupcake lover, paralegal, child of god, daughter, Mom
I’m glad to see you’ve stopped by my little corner! I am a 30-something hard-working gal that currently works full-time in the legal field. I am also a Mama to a beautiful baby girl named Isla (pronounced “eye-lah”). She is definitely my pride and joy, and has brought SO many good changes to my life!
Here are 11 fun facts about me:
- I tend to say what’s on my mind (yep, I’m a Leo, ha);
- I don’t like chocolate much at all;
- I can be socially awkward if I’m not comfortable (but aren’t we all?!);
- I love the Dallas Cowboys;
- I’m crazy organized;
- I love Fanta orange soda;
- I love spending time with my family;
- I wish I traveled more;
- I’m a wannabe runner;
- I don’t put up with any non-sense; and
- I genuinely care about the people around me, including you!
Let me tell you how it all began…
I started writing Anchored by Inspiration (“ABI”) in 2019 when I was simply trying to find a hobby. I really wanted to spend time doing something that I truly enjoyed and loved that I could spend time helping others, because everyone could use a little inspiration from time to time. Myself included. ABI originally started as a lifestyle blog that focused on the things that mattered in life the most, like our finances, relationships, and faith. While ABI focused on these things, it also talked about some of the other things that make us smile, such as good food, family fun and home diy projects.
You’ll quickly see that my posts are an expression of who I am, what I love, and what inspires me.
Life requires us to be willing to do two very important things. Those two things are to change and grow. As scary as that can sometimes be, it is necessary for us to change in order to experience growth. That being said, after having my daughter, I made the big choice of changing the direction that ABI was going in, and decided to narrow things down a bit with more of a focus on motherhood (although we’ll still talk about everyday life things from time to time).
Women collectively as mothers often struggle to hold it all together. There are so many “new” things that are experienced as a first-time, second, or even third-time mom. We wear a ton of “hats” and sometimes getting a handle on your home life is essential to achieving anything else you want in life because It’s hard to focus on the bigger things you want when it feels like your home is in constant chaos. ABI is here to provide simple solutions to you busy moms out there, and to ease your mind in knowing you’re not alone.
It’s simple. Once you take care of home, you’re able to take control of your life!

A few more things about me…
I love being a gift giver especially when it’s not planned. It’s nice to make someone else’s day from time to time.
