I’m too excited to participating in this event hosted by Kristy Elena of Full Time Fabulous. Today’s theme is about exploring our culture’s and where we’re from and I’m glad the FTC Community chose it because it’s something that I don’t get to really talk about much here on my blog.
I mentioned briefly awhile back that my mom’s family is from Havana, Cuba and I grew up in a typical, Cuban household (Spanish and all!). I even went to Cuba when I was little girl to meet the tons of family I still have over there. I can’t wait to go back now that I’m older and the travel over there has gotten a little bit easier. But until then I get to experience Cuban life through the traditions I grew up with (like Noche Buena), living here in South Florida, and my Abuelita, who can still throw down in the kitchen!
So what is Cuban Culture to me?
- It’s big, bold colors
- It’s music, letting the rhythm just flow through you
- It’s food, food,….and more delicious food!
- It’s all about family
- It’s loving to laugh
