[“Rene Margarita.” Digital drawing over photograph in situ from today’s holiday gathering. 2020.]
Today, my family and I FINALLY got together with the Joneses (family friends for decades) for our holiday gift exchange. We met at a Mexican restaurant called Guadalajara, which is a frequent gathering spot for our two groups.
Naturally, I get a little ARTY whenever I’m taking photos, and today was no exception. Here are a couple of the quirkier scenes that I spotted…
In my opinion, it’s important to have these types of get-togethers to keep the bonds between our families strong. We had fun, and most folks liked their food. (I had pollo en mole, which is usually my favorite. It’s chicken in a chocolate and cinnamon type sauce, but the recipe this time wasn’t my favorite. I’ve had this dish at dozens of restaurants, but today… Let’s just say, I didn’t bring my leftovers home.)
ANYWAY, it was a fun time, but all good things must end, and eventually Mariah and I moseyed out the door.
Keep you friends (and family) close! (And always carry a camera!) Thanks for letting me make a bad pun and share some of my pics!
