I have been planning this quinceañera since last year. And boy did I have big plans!
October 1st, 2006 was the day I wrote my very first post here on My Big Fat Cuban Famliy which puts me at 15 years in the blogosphere. What a celebration I had planned!
To celebrate the 15 Milestone, I was going to host tons of giveaways like I usually do. And introduce you to all my cyber-friends and show off all the Cubanity I could for the entire month of October.
Well, you know what the best intentions generally pave the way to. *sigh* I had a really rough year that I’m going to share with you in great detail, but not today. Please bear with me as I attempt to commence blogging once again after an 8 month Covid hiatus. (I swear, it’s a great story.)
Today, I’d like to get the celebration started by sharing a video where I’m wearing my special quinces dress and my crown and have my very special Barbie cake holding my logo.
My son Jon shot hours of video of me and I collected tons of videos from all my Cubiches and I originally thought I’d share it in one big fat share. But there were so many greetings (and so many are my blessings!) that I’m going to just extend the celebration for the entire month of October 2021 and share them like I would share a delicious multi-course meal to be enjoyed slowly and with deliberately.
Sadly, it’s not going to unfold in quite the way I imagined. Truthfully, I think this will be much BETTER!
So as I gather my thoughts to share this month about blogging and how i got here, let’s start with some poignant words from my dear friend, Valentin – I’m Not Crying. You’re Crying – Prieto from Babalú Blog. My brother from another mother.
Happy Bloggiversary to ME and My Big Fat Cuban Family! Let the celebrations commence! Thank you for joining the party!
