Project Dissertation

I moved to this fabulous city three years ago mainly to; be near an airport for travel, be able to not trade my stilletos for trainers, and to finish my doctoral studies in four years. Yes, that pretty much sums up my priorities at 30. So now I am ABD with nine months to go and San Francisco is no easy city to ignore. Although, I would argue that each experience that deters my academic writing is really just needed inspiration. Welcome and I hope you enjoy...

La Matriarch

"Mija cuando cumpla 80, voy estar viejita," She told her eldest daughter on her 78th birthday. The eldest granddaughter requested a lunch to celebrate her Grandmothers 79th birthday. The tias coordinated the emails, the reservations, the home to go to for a cafecito y pastel after. A beautiful luncheon.

Present at the long table from the top:

The first great grandson Fabian
His mother Marta, then father the first grandson Gerardo

The first son in law Ricardo
The first granddaughter Lorena, then her mother the first daughter Laura
The family guest Rebekka

The daughter Maria
The son Rafael, with his twin toddler daughters Sofia y Alina besides him
The twins mother Linda

Two more granddaughters Erica y Danielle, and a grandson Michael

The grandson Jesus & his novia Lisa

The Granddaughter Angelique

The two daughters Cecillia y Dolores

The beautiful heart of our family Amparo.

My primo leaned across the table and said, "this was perfect, nice and relaxed," I smiled as the mariachi played Pelea de Gallos, "yes, next year, we will throw a big party."
