Birthday in Tlaquepaque 2016

Love Is Everywhere

It has been 10 months since my last posting on this blogsite.....I've been busy with work, life, love, friends and most recently family.  My mother came to visit last week for my birthday.  She lives in Los Angeles, CA, a mystical place north of our border.

Ruben and Miramontes 

With her came my most treasured Aunt Tere and my joie de vivre cousin/hermano Ruben(sito).  I too am a "sito" being a Jr. to my father Javier...which makes me Javier(sito).  It's sorta an inside joke between cousins.

We stopped for comida at Talento, one of Guadalajara's most prized restaurants.  The fact that we were greeted so warmly and asked to sit on their very comfortable reception sofa, while perusing the menu, added to the experience.  The food was wonderful!

We also visited a childhood haunt...El Parque Azul, Guadalajara.  The visit sparked many memories.
