For the love of a summer fiesta

Flags in the garden
The best thing about having a garden is having a party in it. In our case, a fiesta. Filled with familia and our best of friends, we celebrated a milestone birthday.

The lilies and gladiolas bloomed, the weather turned out perfectly, and the yes, there was food. Proof:
Of course there was food.

And a table full of pies. Of all kinds.

But one of the best parts was the surprise that came through the garden...
The surprise in the garden

There's something about live music for a party, especially a fiesta, that just makes a party, and a garden come to life. Generations dancing together? Priceless.

And of course, there were ribbons and a piñata.

Summer is sweet this year and full of love: for our family, friends, and the beauty we are surrounded by. Love. Perfect for summer, my favorite season.
