I've never really been one to embrace my culture, but after reuniting with family members whom I haven't seen in years, and seeing younger cousins you remember when they were "this tall" and now they have their own children, it's something that makes you just feel good. My Aunt was kind enough to treat us to a Mariachi band, but nothing was as special as seeing my Grandma light up as they serenaded her.
Mom & I designed coffee mugs together too for all her siblings using my photography.
It's invigorating to have a blog post that my heart is in these days.
I'm so proud of my family.
