Hi friends! I am super excited to tell you a little bit more about myself. My sister and I are extremely passionate about this blog so I want to show you who’s behind it and my story so we can get to know each other and get a sense of who we are and where we are coming from.
My name is Sherry Fierro. I am from San Diego, Ca. Born and raised. I love this city, it really is a vacation spot, but year round for me. I have two sisters. My oldest sister is Marymar she is my partner in crime, soul mate and best friend. I am second in line, and for a long time we thought it was just going to be us two. Then, many years later my younger cool brother came along and we totally though that was it, three is a party and y’all know. Many years go by after that, and now we have a newer younger one. My baby sister is 1 year old! she’s a cutie who loves to dance. Amazing happy family.
My sister and I have been inseparable ever since I was born, we are a year and nine months apart in age so we have always been able to relate each other. We lived in the same household up until she left to college. Then I went away for college too, but we did not attend the same one. I was attending a public school, UC Irvine. While she was enrolled in a private liberal arts school, University of Redlands. There was a huge difference in the colleges we were attending. Once we were both in college we were living about an hour and a half away from each other. When our mom gave Marymar a car thats when we started visiting each other all the time! we would sometimes get home sick so we would spend weekends with each other. One weekend we would party in her school and another weekend we would relax and do our homework in my school. Her school had really fun parties and my school had great study spots haha. We had the best time!
My mom was a single mom, so I started working in high school to help her with my expenses. I would attend school during the weekdays and work during the weekends as well as all my vacation days. Once I started working I never stopped. Every time, every day, every hour I could work I would. For many years I did not really think to do much other than go to school and work. That was until I turned 23. I remember thinking I needed to do something that I was passionate about and enjoyed doing for myself. I am not getting any younger and I do not want to live my life living like a robot. Life is short and we do not know when we are leaving the earth. I was taking my time for granted because I had the mentality that I can always travel later or im not doing it right now because of work, but the time will come when I can enjoy all the stuff I have been wanting to do. When I turned 23 I told myself this was my year. This is going to be the year that I start doing things for me. I gave myself three goals. 1) Start Traveling 2)Workout 3) Start working on a passion. So I started doing all those things! And I am more happy than I have ever been. The working out part I am still learning to love and be consistent with, but I am not giving up on it haha.
My other half name is Erik. He is so sweet and funny. I am always laughing when I am around him. We started dating our senior year of high school. We were not friends before we started dating, we knew of each other and we even rode the same school bus together, but we never spoke to each other. Than, one day I was waiting in line to get in the bus. I remember that I had my school ID inside my back pack and we needed to show our ID to get in the bus. I’m facing the bus and from the reflection of the bus window I see Erik walking down some stairs that led to the busses and I knew he was the funny kid that always sat in the back of the bus. He was about to get in line to go inside the bus so I was thinking i’m going to ask him if he could get my id from the front pocket of my backpack so I can start talking to him, and my excuse would be that I don’t want to take off my backpack so it would be easier for him to get it. So thats what happened and once he got my ID we started talking and he asked “why don’t you ever sit in the back of the bus?” and I said “If you want me to sit next to you why don’t you just ask me?” and there were no empty seats that fit two people, but his best friend was sitting in one so he asked him if he could move to another seat so we could sit next to each other haha so his friend moved and we talked the whole bus ride home and never stopped talking to each other since then. We never thought we would do the whole long distance thing, but with all its ups and downs we survived 4 years of college and now we are finally living in the same city and loving it.
I love reading, makeup, my family, traveling, coffee shops, Netflix, amazon prime shipping haha it has made my life better. Like Marymar’s fiancé, Curran, always says we are all lost. I believe we are all lost, but I also think the universe conspires to help us find our meaning and our souls purpose as long as we build the courage to pursue our dreams and passions. We love helping women out, we like to fix each others crown and we want everyone to feel empowered and encouraged to be who they want to be.
