We left the city yesterday for our friend’s Villa perched high on a mountainside overlooking Puerto Vallarta.
I could feel my senses simultaneously relax and awaken as we left the hustle and bustle for the tranquility of the jungle green.
I love experiences that take me off the beaten path, up a winding road, unsure of what the journey holds, giddy and kid-like in the unfolding of a grand new adventure (even with GPS!).
“It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.” – Alan Cohen
When our friend Dennise invited us to partake in the cutting of the Rosca de Reyes with her family, we knew it was due time that we come to understand firsthand the significance of this celebration of and with our Mexican brothers and sisters.
In spite of my being a former Spanish teacher and us five-year permanent residents of Mexico, admittedly, we had never really participated in nor understood the true significance of the Three Kings’ Day and Rosca de Reyes celebration, until now.
Needless to say, we had an amazing, fun-filled time with lots of laughter, cultural immersion, food, hot chocolate and good family fun.
I will let the following photos tell the rest of the story…
Here’s to following your heart’s desire, your path of truth and authentic living…
How have you celebrated or participated in the Three Kings’ Day or the cutting of The Rosca de Reyes?
We would love to hear about it in the comment’s section below!
