Hi! I’m Leslie.

Welcome to my little space on the web! This began as a place where I shared life lessons about singleness and heartbreak and friendship, outfit tips, but as the seasons in my life have changed, now I hope to share more of marriage, motherhood, and figuring out faith, life, + all of the other previous lessons that I forgot to write about lol. My Instagram is filled with lots of outfits, but also lots of #lesliesalazarJournals (previously #DYLjournals – you can still look them up with that hashtag) where I share my heart and a short lesson I learned/am learning. My goal is to encourage you to know without a doubt that you are loved in every season and no matter what you have done or are going through- it’s going to be okay, you will get through it and you can enjoy your life. Marriage is a journey, motherhood is challenging, and sometimes seasons aren’t as fun, but I also hope you realize you can choose everyday to LIVE and be fulfilled!

I was born and raised in Houston, Tx, but my family is from Colombia. My first language was Spanish and I didn’t even speak English until I was about 8 years old. I am married to my best friend Tedo and we have a baby boy named Milo (you will also see a lot of pictures of him). We also have 2 crazy pitbulls Leo & Bailey and we spend a lot of time picking up Leo’s hair and cleaning up Bailey’s slobber *insert rolling eyes emoji* but I can’t fathom life without them lol I recently quit my job to stay home with my baby and help my husband grow his businesses.

I hope you are encouraged as you read my journals/words.

Thank you for stopping by! XOXO


  1. I just want to say thank you! Your blogs give me hope! I thought I was the only one waiting on the Lord, to be still, to not date,to not flirt, to just focus on me. Your words bring me so much courage, I pray that you stay strong to your words on your journey and that God keeps using to encourage other girls.
