But this year, we did. Our Community Center threw a huge party down in the park, and the entire colonia came out to celebrate. I love our little neighborhood here in Tijuana; it feels less like we live in a huge city and more like we live in a small town where everyone knows everyone. Cecilia had to get a traditional outfit for school, so she wore that to the party (may as well wear it more than once for the cost). Her little friends from school were also there to celebrate.
I feel like I'm celebrating double sometimes, and other times I feel like I'm just celebrating randomness. I don't feel quite settled like this is really my life, but I think that it is because I am new.
