Happy Cinco De Mayo!


Graphic by moleskostudio
Sunday, May 5th

Cinco de Mayo was originally the celebration of victory of Mexico over the French Empire, but has expanded into a celebration of Mexican-American Culture in the United States. Now, you probably don't know this, but some of my family members are part Mexican. My niece's and nephew's, mother is Mexican American, so they are of half Mexican descent.

And as a kid, we used to go to Mexico every year at Christmas time, so it's become part of my life experience. But, there's something else that also happened on Cinco de Mayo that is very important to me....

My husband and I got married on the 8th of May in Las Vegas while we were there for the wedding of a friend. We had been together for five years by that time, and we already felt married, but Christen had not wanted to get married because of our financial situation. But, I told him that I didn't care about that, it was time, so we got married.

But I did have one condition...he had to promise that we would have a Jewish wedding later. So, we got married by a baptist minister at Graceland (NOT an Elvis impersonator)in that beautiful chapel. Then on our first anniversary, we had a beautiful Jewish wedding at what was then The St. James Club on Sunset in West Hollywood, California on May 5th...Cinco de Mayo!

So let the celebration begin!

That's it for now!
