I wrote this on instagram and shared the photo above yesterday for Mexican’s Independence day:
My Tata is one of the many reasons I know my Mexican history. He instilled pride and tradition in our family based on his upbringing and cultural values. In America I dedicate these special holidays to him because they will forever remind me of the conversations discussing Mexico’s history we had. Que lindos recuerdos y que orgullo de ser Mexicana!!! #VivaMexico
It’s because of how he raised my mother and how he helped raise me that made me appreciate my culture. Now as a parent I get to pass on all that i’ve learned and I get to remember the sweet moments that I spent with my family on special days like el dia de la independencia.
I hope my kids carry on the traditions and get to look back at what i’ve share with them. I hope they grow proud of who they are and where their family came from!
