New Year Tradition

This 2017 New Year was a quiet one for me. But I don't really remember celebrating a big New Year like I did last year!(",) I was fortunate to be able to be in Mexico City last year to celebrate a wedding of one of the souls who meant so so much to me, one of my fashion teachers. We were there two days earlier than the wedding (two days after New Year) and that was a pretty amazing celebration. It was a lot of food, dancing; just pure love and happiness all around!! <3 <3 

I'm a person quite full of character, or rather much comical(^.^) Almost all the time, I will get excited about tiny little things. This backyard made me feel like I'm Alice in Wonderland (in my case Rindu in Wonderland^.^)

Mexican New Year is celebrated with full of traditions and colors. The color green signifies financial upliftment (thank god for the green grapes! Lol!) One of the popular traditions is to eat one grape in each click of the clock before twelve seconds of 12 o'clock and each grape signifies good luck of one month of the New Year. Thats 12 grapes per second. I don't know about you, but I cannot chew and swallow in 1 second even for one grape! So, I shoved it all in! =D

2017

Welcoming 2017 with some of the wild lights carried few months ago from Iceland. I had posted this picture and quote on my social media last week but both the picture and quote are so empowering to me that I want it to be my first post on my blog. I have had this pictures when I came back from my magical trip in Iceland in November 2016. But last week while reading Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed, I felt that the picture (and my emotion at that particular moment) is connected to that particular wordings.

In the next couple of weeks, I will post pictures of my 2016 travels. Meanwhile, remember to be compassionate. XOXO

"The unifying theme is resilience and faith. The unifying theme is being a warrior and a motherfucker. It is not fragility. It's strength. It's nerve. And "if your Nerve, deny you --," as Emily Dickinson wrote, "go above your Nerve." Excerpt From: Strayed, Cheryl. "Tiny Beautiful Things." Vintage Books, 2012-07-10. iBooks.
