Every year around this time, I start to get requests for a story or a recipe to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. It struck me that it would be fitting during this month of heritage celebration to tell the stories of Cubans who had to flee their island home to make a new life here in the U.S.
So, I put out the request to my readers and you have responded with the most amazing stories. I am honored to share them here.
Some of the "Cuando Sali de Cuba" stories I have featured in the past:
From now until the middle of October, it gives me great pleasure to share the stories of Cuban immigrants and refugees.
I'll also be doing some really fun and fabulous giveaways, so stay tuned. (No, really. You're going to love them!)
Thanks to all of you who have participated already. To those of you who have not, it's not too late! Please send me your stories, along with some photos. My email is mdarby (at) cox (dot) net.
I am so very excited to get to share these beautiful stories. Thanks for trusting me.
