Texas Posadas: Making new traditions with my little man

My family doesn’t really follow any traditions during the holidays. We just get together in someone’s home, eat and watch the kids be kids. I guess this is a kind of tradition, no? Some of the traditions I grew up with in El Salvador were lost when I came to United States.  Christmas felt different … Continue reading Texas Posadas: Making new traditions with my little man

#naphopomo 2013, Day 17: Dinner en nuestro hogar

Tonight Gael and I hosted a dinner for a small group of friends at home. This was a first for me. I've never really had more than one friend come over for dinner. It was really nice.

#naphopomo 2013, Day 16: Meet Mike

I met Mike Segal this morning during a visit at Ben Taub Hospital with my Mom. He came into the waiting area and said, "at 11am I'm going to have a support group in this room. I would like to tell you my story." My initial thought was, "oh great, what's this guy going to … Continue reading #naphopomo 2013, Day 16: Meet Mike
