Ode to Life Lately: 5 de Mayo Edition

Happy 5 de Mayo, amigos!To celebrate this special occasion and inspired by one of my favorite mom bloggers in history, Naomi from Love Taza, I decided to start a new series on the blog, Ode to Life Lately.I’m that type of person who tends to forget quite easily little moments that are so special to us, so I’ll try my very best to cherish them in my blog, often.Scroll all the way, read these little poems and enjoy some of my suggestions to celebrate today’s 5 de mayo in the city,Because who doesn’t want to have guac and micheladas all day, every single day? 

Dear 5 de Mayo,I wish I could celebrate you every single day with real Micheladas and tacos, why don’t we make a deal and move forward with my yearly offer?Dear Late Spring,I understand you’re fashionably late this year, but can you please read the memo we all left you and bring all the May flowers we sincerely need?Dear Upcoming move,Please don’t be rough on me, I’m kinda freaking out now, lots.
