First, I would like to say THANK YOU to all my friends who helped me sponsor 10 of these amazing kids over the weekend! I feel absolutely blessed to have been able to see first hand the happiness in each of their faces with our gifts and donations! I picked this quote because it described exactly what I saw in those kids and in all those people who have been doing this for years! They are heroes in my book and extremely special human beings that make the time to show so much love and commitment for others and ask for nothing in return, truly selfless! I was honored to be there with them on Saturday! ❤️ #actsofkindness#spreadlove#mexico#loveformexico#childrenoftheworld
I learned something new today!! This is so cool to see an overlap in history, culture, and tradition!!! My coworker from NOLA brought in this Kings Cake from Louisiana (his dad personally brought it to California this week). This is basically supposed to symbolize the start of Mardi Gras. Just like Spanish tradition of Dia de Los Reyes, there is also a baby in the cake and whoever gets it is supposed to have good fortune for the year and is the one to bring the next cake. It’s so cool to see the overlap and never realized this what seems like a Catholic tradition and the version from Louisiana from what I was told has French influence, and is the same in Italy and Spain as well. #KingsCake#EpiphanyDay#KingsDay#DiadelosReyes#MardiGras#NOLA#NewOreleans#Louisiana#CultureFood
*6th of January*, a very special date embedded in my collage of life’s memories. The Day of the Magic Kings, known in Spanish as *El Día de los Reyes Magos. As a child this moment was ever so special, as it seemed we were entering the most magic and exquisite land were all dreams originated, dwelled, and grew wings so as to fly across the universe stirring the imagination of the children everywhere. I was one of them, who harbour and nurture tenderly the magic of existence, and all tales which tell us stories of all kingdoms spread through the minds of those who dare to dream and believe• 🧚🏼♀️👑🧚🏼♂️🎩 #myself#childhood#childhoodmemories#threewisemen#magickings#diadelosreyes#diadelosreyesmagos#photography -The original Winnie the Pooh pictured in 1928 with his first owner, Christopher Robin. #alfredeisenstaedt , Children at Puppet Theatre - Paris, 1963. #robertdoisneau , Les écoliers de la rue Damesme - Paris, 1956.
