Introducing New ABQ Mom Contributer Angelica Ponce


Hey Moms! My name is Angelica Ponce!

I’m married to an active duty Airman, and we have two kids, Israel (Izzy) and Evelyn (Ev). I also have a small, lazy pup named Yoda. I met my husband, Wilmer, in 2010. We have been inseparable ever since. We got married the spring of 2014. I grew up a military brat, but Pensacola, Florida is home. As a family, we love to travel and often go on both small and big adventures. I enjoy crafting, DIY, cooking, and baking. I love being creative and making people smile. In my “kid-free time, which, as I’m sure you can imagine, is super rare, I enjoy a good bottle of wine and a true-crime podcast.


I have been fortunate to live and travel all over the world thanks to my nomadic lifestyle and family. But Albuquerque has been unlike anywhere I have been or lived. This city is so diverse and unique. I love the variety of restaurants and the charming New Mexican culture. The picturesque mountains and desert backdrop make this city truly remarkable.
Plus, Albuquerque has that central location to all of the fun landmarks that New Mexico has to offer. I can see why New Mexico is called the “Land of Enchantment.” I have only lived here for a short while, but Albuquerque has definitely made an impact on my life.

Mommin’ Ain’t Easy

Motherhood came to me as a surprise. Both of my children were unplanned blessings, and are an absolute joy to my life. My son, Israel, was born in 2015, and my daughter, Evelyn, in 2017.

I was a working mom until 2018, when my husband and I decided that staying home was a better option for our family. I enjoy staying home more than I thought I would and the kids definitely keep me very busy. Also, I have a background in education and childcare. I am excited to share my tips and tricks to keeping toddlers busy with you guys.

As a military family we have unique, and let’s be honest…odd, experiences while trying to parent. I am so happy to share my journey in motherhood, and how I have navigated the crazy military family life along with being the best mom I possibly can.


You can find me on Instgram and Facebook.
