This year, we stepped up our fiesta planning skills and took on Cinco de Mayo Pardy style! Well, truly it was Tres de Mayo...but, we ran with the theme and turned it into a housewarming celebration to open our new home up to our family and friends.
I'm thrilled to share some fun snapshots from the first Pardy Party in our new home! I hope it's a start to many more.
I pray our home is a place where everyone feels they can drop by and always count on enjoying good conversation (and most likely good coffee/food/dessert). I pray when people enter our home they notice the presence of the love of Jesus, that there is something oddly welcoming beyond our own hospitality, and that they can sense a loveliness in the difference that is marked by this divine interference.
I hope you all have a fantastic Cinco de Mayo - gathering with friends around a giant chip bowl and setting new records of hot sauce consumption! Our fiesta was a big hit, but I ended up making so much food that I think we'll be celebrating taco night until Memorial Day. Hey, I'm not complaining!
By the way, want a quick review of what this holiday is actually celebrating? I found this fun video on History.com that sums it up:
