I’ve had 26 years on this earth and, in that time, have learned to really love and appreciate Mexico. I hope that on today, the 5th of May, you take a moment to be thankful for our southern neighbors and be proud of the heritage that has become a significant part of American culture. Below are some examples of me enjoying a little bit of Mexico….
Here I am on Halloween 2007. I believe that this costume was referred to as “Dame of the Dead” which was obviously influenced by Mexico’s Day of the Dead celebration.
Ah yes, just look at that fabulously awkward sunbathing girl. I spent a week on the beautiful beaches of Isla Mujeres a couple of years ago, when my friend Andre and I took that trip to celebrate being single on Valentines Day. I ended up meeting a really good-looking Italian guy who, despite not being able to speak each others’ language, was my all time favorite VD date. Only in such a magical place could that have happened.
Here we have a vintage-Liz photograph from 2005, the year I graduated from high school. My friends and I took a trip to Cancun to celebrate our new-found freedom and last summer together before we all scattered across the country to our various colleges of choice. My friend Allison is the blonde in this image and we both still talk about how random, weird, fun, and wonderful this trip was for everyone…and how we both thought we were sooooo fat at that time. Idiots.
Summary- Mexico is fun
