When you first have an idea, it becomes more real every time you tell someone about it. You begin to hang on every gaze and smile and confused expression to gage your potential success. IML probably would have never begun if the negative reactions outweighed the positive. However, I have the best support team in the world!

by Heather O. People always talk about the exotic photos and their envy of the life I lead while living abroad in Spain. And honestly, there is so much to rave about. The trips to Lisbon, Salamanca, Segovia, Madrid, Santander, Granada, Budapest, Istanbul, La Manga, Murcia and more just last year alone with many more [...]
by Alexandra U PART I My making lemonade story started a long time ago. About 18 years ago to be precise. I was 6 years old. I was on a trip with my 10 year old sister, visiting my grandmother and cousins in New Mexico. I was very young, so I don’t remember all the [...]
