Old friends – love them. Literally – LOVE. THEM. Adriana and I – we’ve known each other since we were five years old. For those of you doing the math, that’s 30 years of friendship! I had the honor of being there when her son was baptized, when her son turned two and most recently was there to celebrate Maximo’s 3rd birthday.
Sometimes I can’t believe that Maximo’s mom is the same woman who, dressed up as Snow White’s evil queen when we were in the fifth grade; the same girl who forever refers to me as her first Filipino friend. But here she is, such a wonderful mom to a vibrant little boy and someone who I’ve never known to spare any detail and expense when it comes to doing anything. This year, Adriana and her husband threw their son a Toy Story-themed party, and aside from the faces of Buzz, Woody and friends decorating the surroundings, they also found a way to keep Maximo’s little friends, busy.
Who didn’t love art when they were little?! Small tables topped with paints, markers and piggy banks were the kids’ playground and they loved every minute of it.
Adriana and Gonzalo – you two never disappoint! Congrats on three years of parenthood!
