I rebelled. I ignored every single stereotype involved in 5 de mayo. In fact I confessed to never celebrating it, because I don’t. No one was doing shots. Tequila was sipped and served with an orange wedge. I love sombreros and sarapes. I own a few, but they weren’t invited today. No mustaches. No chihuahuas. Yes on the guac but also yes on the mostachón, a merengue and biscuit batter cake topped with sweet cream and fresh strawberries that’s often made and served in gatherings in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon. Yes on the clay tableware that came home with me on my travels in San Miguel de Allende. This is our Mexican-ness… Thank you ladies for helping me share this side of what it means to be a proud Mexicana with none of the stereotypes attached. Mexico has so much unknown beauty, I’ll try my best to keep bringing it to you. #Fiestas by @casamarcela ? @thoughtsby_brandi
