Happy New Year! like super late... how were your holidays? how did you survive all the food and stress...? Ours were quite nice, we didn't really do much. The Hubs took some time off work and we just wanted to chill and relax... Back in November we decided to order our christmas cards from Minted. They have really cool designs, features and they have nice offers from time to time, like free printed addresses (I was not payed to say this, i'm just really happy with how our cards turned out).
Hi everybody! So, as promised here's the second part of our christmas/new year holidays. We didn't really do a lot on those days. My brother's girlfriend came to visit too and we spend our days baking muffins, doing milkshakes, watching movies and playing with Lola.
Hi everybody! Remember i told you last week was baking week? well... no, it wasn't. Who has the time? Not me! But we finally took some pictures of our christmas decorations, well Raul took the pictures. My brother came in yesterday from Dresden and we're now at the in-laws, where we're going to stay probably until friday. So i'll probably see you next weekend with nice family christmas pictures. So, without further ado:
I've been trying to keep some mexican traditions alive in our german/mexican/romanian household. On November the 2nd we celebrate Día de Muertos: we set our Ofrenda for those we've lost, dine together with the familiy and reminisce about them. It's not a sad day, it's a day of remembering and sharing those memories. It's a day when we invite the dead to celebrate with us their lives.
