HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!
BB has been Blessed with many Beautifuls in her vida- YOU being one of them. BB is grateful for all of you.  There are two Bellas in particular who give all year round, but shine brighter than usual in December.  Babushka would like to share their light in gratitude. The song starting the post is old, but very verdad and describes these two in BB's life. One from childhood, the other from not too long ago. 🎜Silver & Gold🎝  .

**TG Merry**



TG's Papa was a bigwig with the Home Builder's Assoc.and was transferred from Missouri to Miami during our highschool years. Talk about culture shock!! Pero TG acclimated very well and quickly; she learned to love the comida and the people. Bb's Papa calls her "The Cuban from Missouri" to this day.  He was impressed by her manners, genuiness, brains. A wiz in math, my engineer father liked having conversations with her. Dear Memories de many happy horas spent in their casa, truly down to earth, loving people who BB missed immensely when they moved away.  Since then we have seen each other maybe 4x (she was MOH at Babushka's 1st wedding) but the amor is still there.


All year long TG does for others, her familia, her church, her community, but she shines even brighter in December. Most people take their Bday months suave, pero her Cumples is on December 25 (imaginate!) and her inner star enlightens stronger and for so many.  TG is now a mom and every year she sends out fotos with an original Family Christmas Poem sharing the events of the Merry Familia for that year. LOVE getting those. One year she didn't send to  BB and it was quickly reclamado!


 This year Mama G went to heaven, she would have loved the way her passing was shared. She was a good, giving mujer and TG is very much her hija. And TG is very much a part of Babushka's Golden Memories.

**Maria Ortiz**Cultura Latina Magazine**

Maria messaged BB several years ago via Feibu. Don't know how she found Babushka, but so glad she did! If you want to know anything and everything that has to do with "La Hispanidad" in Tallahassee, Maria is the one to contact.  As owner/editor of Cultura Latina Magazine she has been sharing her love of the hispanic culture and people for years. Pero that be the only way she helps and highlights us? JU SO FONII!! A diligent dynamo, she is sought after to organize and host  many events. She lives solidarity and inclusion- of ALL people. Naturalmente she is much loved here because of this, but mostly it's because she gives de corazon, from her corazon. An example of this was a Christmas Low Tea Party, part of Maria Ortiz's Wonderworld. Oh si, she's into cosplay tambien.

"We are celebrating a very Merry Christmas Low Tea Party by order of the Queen of Cultura Latina Heart in honor of all the years of friendship and sisterhood.  You are hereby summoned to attend to celebrate withthe ueen who has planned a fabulous afternoon with tea and treats!"

And an intro from Maria herself-


Enjoy the detalles and the delightful dignitaries- Tally artists, writers and lovers of culture.
Cynthia Rose, Barbara Joe Williams, the lovely madre/hija team behind Studio Heart Events amongst them. 


Hope you noticed the Reyes Magos amongst the decoraciones. Naturally they had to be represented, especially by Maria who celebrates them with a public party. She's even got the Mayor in on it! Details on that despues on Feibu. 

Babushka knows y'all would love these Bellas as much as she does. 
 This is just BB's way of showing a little Amor and saying Gracias for their years of friendship.

Hoping you have Silver & Gold in your lives, and that they know how precious they are pa' ti.

Feliz 2019 Beautifuls!
Babushka Besos a todos.
