We had a very pleasant surprise last Friday evening. My son went to a birthday party and when we went to pick him up, we were invited in for cake. Not just any cake — a Mexican homemade pineapple upside-down cake, which was amazing!!!
While we had a night planned full of shopping and wrapping, we ended up sitting around the table eating cake and learning about many Mexican traditions, from birthdays to Christmas — some in English and others in Spanish. I was a wonderful evening and a perfect way to celebrate this time of family and friends — new and old!
I share this very sweet serendipity moment to remind you that while we are super busy during this holiday time, please stop every once in a while to smell the flowers of life. You will never fly by this particular holiday garden again, so pay attention when “little drops of nectar” are offered.
