The 23-year-old singer posted two telling pictures and lengthy posts to her 108,000 followers on Instagram over the weekend.
What does it feel like to have words like THIS written about you? I’ll let you know when I have an answer.. for now.. I’m just a glowing puddle. I love you. Each and every word you write elevates me. (about me or not) I can’t wait for the world (and you) to see what you’re capable of. #Repost @holagemeny ・・・ “What do you have to say about our anniversary?” she asks, as if my love for her could ever find it’s resting place among the curling lines of letters turned words. It can’t. What do you do when your life comes to a stop as a result of one meeting, one person? How do you cope? Where do you go? I imagine these are things I would’ve asked myself if I had any choice in the matter. But I didn’t. You see, you swept me. You took me from my standing place and catapulted me to a new world. A brand new place, a most beautiful universe unlike anything I had every seen. (I know now I could only have reached it with you holding my hand.) There is love in every corner here. And not the kind of love you might think I’m referring to. Not flowers, chocolates, and poor-rhyme-scheme love. True love. Good love. Our love. Love that permeates every piece of its surroundings. Love that chokes you, shakes you, scares you, illuminates you, heals you, awakens you. Love that pours so much of itself into you, you can’t help but become it. Love that is so loud, everything else is just background noise. And it looks so much like you. I have lived every one of the last 365 days of my life lost in this beautiful place, this beautiful love. Lost in you, and the extraordinary honor of loving you. You are light, you are beauty, you are home, and you are all that I aspire to be. I don’t know where you came from, but I am sure glad you are here. To 1, to 2, to 20 lifetimes more. I love you. Yours, fully, Moon Flower P.S. Hearing our voices together is the closest I’ve been to heaven.

Saying she is a “a glowing puddle,” Estefan gushed about her lady love @holagemeny, aka Gemeny Hernandez, in one post.
“I love you. Each and every word you write elevates me. (about me or not) I can’t wait for the world (and you) to see what you’re capable of,” continued the romantic post, which apparently was to mark their one-year anniversary, Dec. 13.
“I have lived every one of the last 365 days of my life lost in this beautiful place, this beautiful love. Lost in you, and the extraordinary honor of loving you.”
This love letter continues: “You are light, you are beauty, you are home, and you are all that I aspire to be. I don’t know where you came from, but I am sure glad you are here. To 1, to 2, to 20 lifetimes more. I love you.”
Another post complete with an old school Polaroid pic reads: “Happy anniversary to my delicate, bold, intelligent, important, honest, loving, funny (but not funnier than me), brave, compassionate, patient, badass, talented, and the most beautiful… Moon Flower. I love you. One circle exquisitely sealed in time forever. Cheers to many more, and tons more laughing.”
It’s the first pictures we have seen of the couple.
If you’ve ever been anywhere near you, you’d know what I’m about to say is the truth: you are going to take the entire world by storm, little lady. And I can’t wait to watch. If you want to see what I mean, don’t miss the #kennedycenterhonors Dec. 26 at 9/8c on @cbstv!

But on Dec. 8, Hernandez had already posted a pic — a red-carpet glam shot of her and Emily all dressed up at John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., where Gloria Estefan made history by becoming the first Cuban American to be named a Kennedy Center Honoree on Dec 3.
A quick scan of Facebook reveals Hernandez is an administrative coordinator at Florida International University, where she also studied.
“If you’ve ever been anywhere near you, you’d know what I’m about to say is the truth: you are going to take the entire world by storm, little lady,” wrote Emily’s girlfriend. “And I can’t wait to watch.”
