Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

With the 4th of July quickly approaching, fun events with family and friends are sure to make up almost everyones three day weekend. I am incredibly excited, because this weekend we will be having a family reunion, which I am sure will hold MANY unforgettable stories. My mom's sister and her family are driving down today from Dallas, and I am so excited to see them, they always keep me laughing and my cousins from Austin are coming as well. It is always fun celebrating holidays with family as there is never a dull moment. The food is always good, the laughter is never ending, and for the most part everything runs smoothly!


Every year we all gather at my Grandpa's sisters house in Canutillo. Last year was something I will never forget. All the guys in our family were shooting off fireworks in the middle of the street (fireworks were not banned at this time). Of course their grouch neighbor was not pleased, which I can understand, but it was the 4th of July & you can't have 4th of July without fireworks. They called the police and it was a huge deal and everyone was yelling and getting mad, but to be honest most of us just thought it was hilarious! After everything was settled we continued on with our celebration, but respected the neighbor's wishes to shot the fireworks off somewhere else. 


It truly was a memory that I will hold forever! I love my family and I am excited to see what this weekend has in store for us!
