Happy birthday to my wonderful aunt, Jesusita!
November and December are busy months trying to keep up with the holidays, family, and work, but I did not want miss this opportunity to post some family portraits. This is my aunt who is celebrating 80 wonderful years. She is super energetic and is, as we call her, the matriarch of our family. A fitting description for someone who has spent her life working to care for and raise her siblings after her own parents passed. Jesusita is one of 13!
I look back on time spent with my extended family on my maternal side with so much fondness and love because it is my mother’s family that taught me how important it is to be united, to keep traditions, and have unconditional love for each other. I sit here tearing up as I write this grateful for the opportunity to capture my aunt’s spirit and beauty. Tia, you are a true giver—so generous with your time, compassion, and love. Thank you for giving our family so much for so long. We are blessed because of you. All my love, Angie.
