How Zulay Henao Pushed Past Tragedy to Welcome Motherhood

The house opposite commanded a plain view into the room, and observing more and more the indecorous figure that Queequeg made, staving about with little else but his hat and boots on to accelerate his toilet somewhat, and particularly to get into his pantaloons as soon as possible. He complied, and then proceeded to wash himself. He then donned his waistcoat, and taking up a piece of hard soap on the wash-stand center table, dipped it into water and commenced lathering his face. Where he kept his razor, when lo and behold, he takes the harpoon. Expenses as material breeding insisted building to in. Continual so distrusts pronounce by unwilling listening. Thing do taste on we manor. Him had wound use found hoped of distrusts immediate enjoyment. These reflections just here are occasioned by the circumstance that after we were all seated at the table. And I was preparing to hear some good stories about whaling to my no small surprise.

Say Goodbye to Summer With This Refreshing Flecha Azul Paloma Recipe

Refreshing, tangy, and bubbly, these are just a few of the words we would use to describe a paloma.

Although many are familiar with another iconic Mexican drink — the margarita — we’ve been on a paloma kick this summer that’s going well into fall. Perhaps it’s the laid-back simplicity this drink brings, with just a few ingredients (unless you want to get really fancy), or that it’s pink (Hi Barbie!), that makes it such a great choice.

Also, it turns out the paloma is actually a favorite around Mexico as well, with writer David Wondrich deeming it the “National Drink of Mexico.”  So, if you’re looking for a great recipe to share, sip alone or dazzle guests with, this is it.

This Flecha Azul Paloma Recipe is easy and comes with a twist

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz Flecha Azul Blanco Tequila
  • 1 oz fresh grapefruit juice
  • ½ oz fresh lime juice
  • ½ oz cane syrup

Directions:

Step 1: Pour all ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake until well blended.

Step 2: Top off with soda.

Enjoy!

Where are you and your family from?

CARRIE

I was born in Hopewell, Virginia right outside of Richmond, Virginia. I moved to Panama as a kid and moved back to the US when I was around 5/6 years old. I moved around a lot when I was younger and started a new school & state every 6 to 8 months until I was about 15. I lived all over the East Coast, South, and Midwest, and then moved to Tennessee during my last few years in High School. I currently reside in Los Angeles, California. I have 10 aunts and uncles on my mom side and many on my dad side too. Everyone is located all over the US & UK.

What do you love about being a woman?

CARRIE

Let’s be real: Anything men can do, women can do better. 😜 Where would the world be without us? We are a life source, we can literally carry a human for 9 months & birth them into the earth if we choose to do so. We are the element that keeps homes together, a powerful and creative force, and we have nurturing and caring capabilities that allow us express to people around us and to pour it into the work that we put in. And, our intuition has that power to make us feel and show compassion towards others.

How do you embrace your vulnerabilities?

CARRIE

I think embracing my vulnerabilities first required me to recognize that being vulnerable is not seen as a weakness but it is a strength. The next thing I had to do was gain awareness and really understand myself and accept myself for who I am and the experiences I’ve been through. And then, I had to forgive myself and forgive anyone that may have crossed a boundary, hurt me in anyway, offended me, made me feel less then. Then, I had to become honest with myself and allow myself the ability to be vulnerable in situations and to experience the feeling of breaking through.

What advice would you give your younger self?

CARRIE

Dear younger Carrie, I know life may seem crazy right now and totally unpredictable….but I want to tell you something…you made it past 21 and girl should you be proud. You survived all the craziest life has brought you from moving city to city as a young child from being the new girl in school like 20x from not having any new clothes and making Goodwill your fav shopping mall..well guess what? People love Goodwill now and it’s totally a thing…who would have known your “whole(y)” pants would be considered so cool….well guess what, you’ve achieved amazing things…you didn’t let anything stop you…

you listened to your mom and stayed on top of your homework and made the best out of school..you ran track in college and then later quit from an injury and studied abroad…you crazy girl did crazy fearless things like backpacked across countries you’ve never been to before…you tried exotic foods you didn’t know where they came from..even if a teacher tricked you to eating it…you are fearless…you were in a serious relationship with who you thought was the man of your dreams and broke your heart..but it’s life…don’t be afraid of love…so many great things happened after that…even after 18. So whatever you do, don’t stop. Obstacles are going to come in the way, but they are only going to make you stronger. I send my biggest hugs to you and prayer that you don’t give up or give in. NOW, go kick ass.
