Welcome to Red for Thought!

About Red for Thought…

Where do I even begin? Do I start at the beginning beginning, like December 1988? I think that’s too far back…

Let’s see. I think it’s better if I start at my adult beginning. February 1, 2014. That’s the day I got married to the love of my life, my first boyfriend—Santiago Ortega. I was really only 25 years young, a baby! Hell, if my kids came home today at 25 and said they were getting married, I’d send them to their room. But I felt like an adult and it was a big decision, so that’s my new beginning…

I had big dreams; you know. I was going to get married (check!), be a working/independent woman (check!), throw lavish parties (apparently, I’m not the lavish party type), and raise beautiful daughters…. That’s right, girls. Pink, pink pink…

In 2015, I decided to create an Instagram separate from my personal one. In this space I hoped to share with my followers, or as I call them now, my fans, a slice of my good life. All my travels, jewels, purses, shoes and restaurant visits. It was going to be exquisite. This would have been amazing except, my life was completely ordinary and no one really cared what I was doing or what I was wearing (I’m ordinary, remember?)

But then work, life and getting pregnant got in the way (such is life), and I welcomed my anything but ordinary son.  It’s now 2019, I’ve learned that people do care what I have to say and my daughters are actually sons. I have two beautiful ginger babies who have stolen my heart. They make everything better and oddly enough, worse.

My page is dedicated to all the moms out there who have no idea what the hell they’re doing but are trying their best just the same. It’s for the current mom, old mom, past mom and wannabe mom who get that children are a blessing but they’re also kinda the worst.

My name is Adriana and I am Red For Thought. Follow me on my journey to a wonderfully messed up motherhood!
