Hi loves! It’s been a whirlwind couple of months, and I wanted to start off fresh by telling you what’s been going on in our lives. As you may know, I was finishing up my PhD in biomedical engineering in December. The two months leading up to my defense presentation were very chaotic – not only was I working long hours to accomplish all the experiments I needed, plus writing the actual thesis document, but my husband and I were also organizing a move to the metro DC area. Though we weren’t necessarily looking to make a big move, a series of serendipitous events led us to decide to go for it.

Welcome to A Lovely Moment!


Hello! Thank you so much for visiting my blog. My name is Cheryl San Emeterio and I’m a PhD student in Biomedical Engineering. Though I’ve spent my professional career thus far in the STEM fields, I have always had a passion for interior design, fashion, and beauty. I have been reading blogs for years, and had been content with reading and being inspired by others. Recently though, I could not shake the yearning I had to start creating and sharing content of my own. My husband, Juan, is a software developer and he poured his heart into making this online space, and thus, A Lovely Moment was born.

I hope to be able to share this with you.  I can’t wait to learn and create, and am thankful to have you on this adventure with me.
