Wedding Pics

As I shared with you guys last week my sister in law got married! She looked beautiful! Here are some pictures I took on of her wedding day.

 She looked beautiful on her BIG day. Everything looked great and as if it had been planned and rehearsed! Her colors as you can see on the pictures were red, white and blue. The colors looked great together, all her hard work paid off! Congrats Mr. and Mrs!

The BIG day

In a couple of minutes it will be the BIG day for my sister in law! She is marrying the love of her life who she met years ago. In their story you could truly say that if its meant to be it will come back to you. They both met while in high school more than 10 years ago, after graduating they went their separates way and many years later reunited through a social network. Dated for several years and then it was Thanksgiving dinner at her house and both of his and her family were there. He looked at her and popped the question! Of course she broke out in tears and said YES! The planning train took off, first the engagement, next the bridal shower, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and now the BIG day is a couple of minutes away. Today instead of having a rehearsal dinner we went out on girl's night out, her last night as a single lady. My sister in law worked hard at planning and paying for her wedding. She took care of every detail on her own, of course with the help of her MOH. At times she started to second guess herself and as the months and events passed by, the BIG day kept getting closer and closer.I wanted to take the time to tell her how much I love her and how proud I am of her! I thank God and I could truly say that when I married my husband, I was blessed with a second family. I am very proud of my sister in law and her accomplishments as a woman, and a single parent. I wish both of them a lifetime full of happiness, health and love. Now off to bed to get some rest for the BIG day.

200 Años de ser Orgullosamente Mexicanos

El 16 de Septiembre se celebra el día en que en México comienza la lucha por la independencia en 1810, esta lucha al principio fue encabezada por el Cura Miguel Hidalgo y el General Ignacio Allende, y duró aproximadamente once años durante los cuales mucha gente estuvo al frente del ejército insurgente, hasta que en 1821 México se proclama un país independiente.

En México el 16 de Septiembre constituye la festividad máxima de la Patria.
Este día no trabaja nadie ni siquiera la Bolsa de Valores. En la mayoría de las ciudades se hacen celebraciones cívicas realizando honores a la bandera. Por las principales calles de las ciudades se organiza un desfile en el que marchan los niños de las diferentes escuelas, y otros representan los hechos ocurridos el 16 de septiembre de 1810.

Este 2010 se celebran 200 años de ser orgullosamente Mexicanos! Si te gustaria aprender sobre la historia de Mexico haz click aqui.

Espero y disfruten las fotos que les dejo aqui. Las fotos las tome en uno de nuestros viajes a Matamoros, Mexico. Saludos a todos mis paisanos y a mi familia en Mexico a quien extraño mucho!
