A Half Of Me

Monday, September 14, 2009

Sunday I went to an outdoor mall where dozens of stands were set up where you could find everything from food to jewelry to freebies. Music blared, delicious smells from the food stands circulated the walkways and people laughed and generally had a good time. The atmosphere brought me back to my visits of Mexico. My family and I usually go every December but we doubt we'll be going this upcoming December, a fact that makes me a bit sad because I was really looking forward to going this year (especially because I have a Canon Rebel now). So it was definitely nice to get a little dose of the experience so close to home. It's moments like these that make me so proud to be able to say that I am half Mexican.

For lunch I really enjoyed a veggie burrito with loads of lĂ­mon y salsa.

oh you look so pretty in these pictures! I've read in your blog that you're growing out your hair but I must say that your hair looks ever so lovely here!

I love the vintage feel to these pictures, you're so great at capturing them:) And Mexico sounds like an enchanting place, do share your pictures when you have them.

Love your dress and the burrito looks SO good!

I'm 1/4 Mexican and my mother always took family trips to Mexico all of the time but I've actually never gone. One day I will!

I love outdoor stands! I think it's so much more fun than going to the mall. They always have more character! And you look very pretty in the pictures :)
