Disclosure: Babushka wrote this for the Febrero/February 2020 edition of Conexion
A bilingual newspaper here in Florida's panhandle as well as Georgia and South Alabama.


Hola Hola Hola Beautifuls!

This post will be a BB Twofer. If you’ve been reading Babushka for awhile, you know that’s when you get dos topics in one post. A Two fer (for) uno. Last week the editor asked for submissions and BB asked what he’d like her post to be about. He never mandates, pero usually has some pretty good prompts y suggestions. For February he answered, “Valentine’s Day or Black HIstory Month”. Naturalmente, both very apropo and good temas, so pa’lante-pero, a la Babushka. Combining the two con corazon y cariรฑo, a true story of love.

Miami, 15 years ago, Babushka’s eldest found her love. La CubanDominicanChinese Princess chose her Panamanian Prince and they proceeded to make a familia. 


Their first, a special child with an affinity to those smaller and younger than himself, especially babies. Then came la preciosa Princesa whose artistic attitude started a movement. The third is a little man who was already studying his surroundings on his first dia of vida. One could tell he had history, and would probably make history.

Familia is blood, the color red, the color of Valentine’s.


La Tata and her six greatgreatgrandchildren.

Si, they will make history, be a part of history. As we all are. Babushka chose to include this under Valentine’s/Black History month because of what she hopes is obvious. Through our examples, our passions, we influence our surroundings. So for those who first see the color, JU SO FONII!! May you see with your corazones the truth, that the outcome is a tale of love. Y al final Beautifuls,when all is said and done,  Amor is our history

Babushka Besos a Todos. Cuidensen.
