So Long 2019, Hello 2020!
Each year we have an opportunity to show ourselves who we want to be, who we are. Goals we aspired to achieve and achieved. Each year we find out how much more we love and accept ourselves. 2019 was definitely a year of growth, overcoming obstacles and realizing how much potential I actually held. Going into 2020, whoo! The new roaring ’20s, super excited, I wish nothing but love and positivity for everyone. I want more opportunities, good health, new friends and of course more adventures for you all. Be brave, have fun, make 2020 your year. I also want to thank everyone for starting off this blogging journey with me! I can’t wait to write more. Be safe my lovelies. Happy New Year!

Dias De Los Muertos
Dias De Los Muertas is a celebration of life. The theme yes, is death but it is seen with celebration and togetherness. This celebration goes on for days, between October 31st through November 2nd. Families gather around and share tales, laughter and food with their loved ones in the flesh and spirit. We tell our loved ones that have passed stories and everything that has been going on in our lives and we can’t forget to share with them their favorite food. Dias De Los Muertos is commonly celebrated in Mexico. There are many other cultures that celebrate it too though.
