I find myself reflecting back on the exciting moments in 2019 and all the memories that made me smile. My biggest accomplishment was publishing my book!

I deeply appreciate everyone who has supported me with my 8 year project. It was a terrifying, cathartic and proud moment for myself. Something I worked tirelessly on, yet the comments and feedback made it all worth it.

I remember years ago when it was merely a thought. It was something I felt strongly about doing, even though I knew nothing about writing a book. I was passionate about sharing my story and extremely determined to make it happen. 2019 allowed me to accomplish something I wasn’t sure I could do.

My new year's resolution for 2020 is to finish my next project! It is something I am very excited about. Especially because I will be collaborating with my sister on it!

I hope that everyone has a positive start to a fantastic new year! May you dream big, and never give up, no matter how long it takes.

The anniversary of Eddie’s death could be a terrible day. Thinking back on painful memories and feelings could be consuming and has been in the past. November 10th could be dreaded...It could. Instead, I made the decision years ago to turn such a horrible day into a celebration of life, just as Eddie would.

When I was invited to the Salute to Service Jets/Giants football game, I happily accepted. This was the second year we walked the massive American flag onto the field, surrounded by other gold star family members and military personnel. It was just as incredible as last year. The energy, the crowd, the symbolic weight of the flag, but most of all, the feeling of patriotism, and love and respect for our military. It was an honor and I was ecstatic that I was able to enjoy with my family and Finny. I loved seeing the smile and excitement on my daughters face as she held the flag with her tiny little fingers. She is only 4 and doesn’t fully grasp the importance of this entire experience. But when I heard her singing along to God Bless America, my heart was overwhelmingly full.

With every ripple of the flag I could feel Eddie’s presence. I could hear his laugh, I could feel his spirit and I could see his smile.


Happy Veterans day to all of the incredible people who have served and who are still serving. I'm truly proud to be an American!

Wow, I’m really feeling the love! Thank you to everyone who took time out of their day to come by the Nyack street fair and support me. Especially Aunt Helen and Cassandra who drove all the way from Syracuse. I’m truly touched! Thank you to my friends and family who helped me during the event, knowing how uncomfortable it makes me to put myself out there. As I expressed in my book, many things are accomplished by taking baby steps. Signing up for the fair was a giant leap for me so if means the world for all your support.


For those who couldn’t make it but asked for a signed copy, I will gladly mail you one. If you would like a signed copy please email me contact@andreaperez.net I will accept Venmo or Paypal and will personally mail you a signed copy (at my street fair price) for $15, while I still have in stock. Please don’t forget to leave a review on Amazon =)
