MEXICO

I just came back from spending a week in Mexico with my whole family. We all decided to go because my grandpa was celebrating his 80th birthday over in his home state of San Luis Potosi. That's where my parents and older sisters were born as well. I actually hadn't been there in 15 years so I knew it would be a whole new experience. Every state, and even city has their own unique vibe. So it was great to explore!

We first arrived to Guanajuato to visit. And that city stole my heart. The vibrant colors and culture are beautiful. 







Then we headed to my family's home state but to another part where it's pure rain forest. It's known as La Huasteca Potosina. It's filled with waterfalls and so much lush greenery. We also went to Sir Edward James' castle in the middle of the jungle. We had quite the vision! His place is filled with natural waterfalls, pools, and surrealist concrete sculptures. Definetly my favorite place we went to in  La Huasteca.  









And we finished our trip with my parents hometown, San Luis Potosi (the capital of San Luis Potosi, the state) We visited the historic centro, which I loved. And we got to visit so much family. We had a family reunion on my mom side. And at my grandpa's 80th birthday, it technically was a family reunion from my dad's side. I also got to see so many old pictures of my grandparents. I love seeing that kind of stuff. I loved exploring the city my parent's grew up in. I sometimes can't believe they left the city they grew up in, and all their family just to give me and my siblings a better life. The selflessness they had is easier to understand now that I have Jonah, and even still...it's hard to grasp. I'm truly grateful for everything I have now, and it's because of them. I cherish this trip, and the fact I got to do it with my whole family.
