Growing up with Tamales

Gwen Zepeda and her illustrator April Ward ROCK! I love this book! It is so sweet and touching. It really captures how little girls feel, think and dream... Great job Gwen! I received my copy in the mail yesterday and already read it. I'm reading it to the kids tonight.

If you have not seen this book run to your local book store and buy it or do like me and buy it on Amazon. And YES it is in English and in Spanish, so all of you can read it. (Inevitably I will be asked that question!)

I think Gwen and I are related somewhere way back because my mother's family name is Zepeda.

Not that you asked, but I have had a horrible week. I was even absent from this blog, but I did post something over at skirt!

I was sick all week and I've had challenges. Today will be the first day I go back to the gym in one week. I'm going to just start back slowly walking. Then Sunday I'll try to go back and I'll pick it up a notch. I'll report back soon.

P.S. I don't double post here and on skirt! usually, but this was a rare exception because I wanted to talk about Gwen there too.
