In Latin tradition, girls are given a quinceañera, or Sweet 15, in order to celebrate their passage from girl to woman.
We had a quinceañera for my daughter with our family and close friends as well as a number of her friends. It was a lovely time and I think everyone had a blast!
Part of the tradition is that the women of the family, mom, aunts, grandmother and godmother, each present the young woman with a gift that symbolizes the passage. Things like earrings, bracelets, rings and other items that a woman would wear.
Here are some photos of my daughter, her godmother (my sister), her aunt, her grandmother and me doing that rite of passage.
Here is a photo of my daughter, hubby and me. If you believe in such things, you will notice the orbs that were present in this photo and many of the others. One friend who attended and is a sensitive said the place was haunted. It could be. We had the celebration in an old inn that has been around since 1843.
We’ve done some LOST hotties before (Josh Holloway and Daniel Dae Kim), but it somehow seems appropriate to do yet another LOST hottie today since the show just ended.
I have to confess that my immediate reaction wasn’t “What a Hottie!” I thought Matthew was kind of cute, but I’d seen him looking better (the ill-fated HAUNTED about a cop who has a near death experience and comes back with special powers.)
But Matthew got better and better looking as the show went on and can hold his own with any of the other gorgeous men on the show. I hope that we’ll get to see lots more of him in other projects in the future!
****SPOILERS AHEAD for LOST FANS****
As for the LOST series finale, what are your thoughts on it? I had said to my husband long ago that I thought the island was purgatory and that the people were dead and could not move on until they had either redeemed themselves or had closure about the issues in their lives. LOL! I guess I wasn’t so far off the money.
What I’m missing is — What was this “sideways” world? Another holding station before going to heaven?
If you have any thoughts about it, please share them!
