Viva Mexico!

happy cinco de mayo!

the truth is, our celebration for cinco de mayo really just gives me a chance to indulge in my passion for everything mexican. don't get me wrong, i know the basics of history, the mexican victory over the french in the battle of puebla, yeah, yeah, but that was a long time ago and there is so much more about mexico to celebrate!
it's no secret or surprise that i am in love with mexican culture, colors, food, textiles, music and that untold latin flair and vibrancy that artist chucho reyes calls "the adventure of disorder."

today i sat in the sun, drank a corona in the afternoon while listening to vicente fernandez and looking through some of my favorite mexico books:
and reading sandra cisneros' lively and amazing tales.

okay, we're heading out the door to a party but if i have time tomorrow i'll post my instructions for delicious pico de gallo!
