About Me


Overlooking the Port of Monaco

Let me introduce myself: I have been christened Leny since birth. 
It is not a short name for something. Like Leonarda, Leonila or Marilen.

It is just LENY. Short. Plain. Simple. Don't ask me why. Ask my Mom.
Maybe she got tired of giving my other siblings long names.
By the time she got to me (I was the 7th and the youngest child), I guess, she just ran out.

I am the youngest of 7 siblings. 
My Mom nicknamed me Champion. Be my guest. Assume away...
She always tells me that I am driven, always game for just about anything...
As long as it doesn't cause me, or her, trouble!

I married the love of my life at 26. At 32, I retired from corporate work.
To follow and carve for myself another dream.  Another plan. Another goal.

I shifted gears. I slowed down. I got out of the rat race.
All for one reason. Family. Yes, relationship.
There is nothing more important.

I raise my children. I give them love. Lots of hugs and affection.
I teach them values. I teach them life. I watch them grow.

I fall in love with my husband everyday.
I give him love. Lots of hugs and affection.
I plan our future with him and I hold his hands.
I will watch him grow old and gray...

I give thanks. I am blessed. 
All because of my One True Love: God, the Giver of Life.

"Many women do noble things
but you surpass them all.
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting,
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised." 
Proverbs 31:30

Let me introduce you to my family:

Gerard is my thoughtful, devoted husband of 14 years. 
His passions are cars, family, travel, and all the good things in life.
An entrepreneur. A dedicated Christian. A doting and most loving Dad.

My three adorable kids: 

Miguel is my inspiring 13-year old. A guitar and drum-playing cool dude.  
A straight A student. A Messi soccer fan.

Andrea is my 9-year old go-getter. A singing sensation.
A creative old soul. The sweetest daughter one can find.

Jaime is my most affectionate 7-year old. A red-belt Taekwondo-jin.
The biggest Ronaldo fan. Our baby boy.

Keep Walking!
