Childhood memories are vivid, almost indescribable in their detail, and impossible to forget. A Christmas memory I have is that of a black velvet dress  a family friend gave to me for my seventh Christmas.

A Year of Tiki Tiki: A Week-Long Pachanga!

Submitted by on July 19, 2010 – 4:25 am6 Comments

When the Tiki Tiki turned 1 in May, Marta was in the middle of end-of-school activities with her kids, and my hometown was under water during a 1000-year flood. So, we put off giving ourselves a big Latin-style birthday party.

We are ready now.

To get in the mood for the fiesta we’ve got planned this week, imagine with us for a moment that there is a piñata hanging outside and there is a table full of pastelitos and cangrejitos, and very loud salsa music playing. Imagine that someone has pushed all the furniture back, that the kids are swimming in the pool and that a group of men is arguing over whether the lechon is done or not. I have a mojito in my hand and Marta is making dulce leche ice cream in the kitchen.

OK, now that we’re properly in the mood, let me tell you what’s going on here this week. We’ve put together a week’s worth of the best of the best from the archives and will hand them out one-a-day. The schedule:

  • Monday: A Year of Comida
  • Tuesday: A Year of Del Alma
  • Wednesday: A Year of Contributors
  • Thursday: A Year of Habla Habla
  • Friday: A Year of Videos

We hope you’ll scroll through the posts again, or maybe find some you missed the first time. Leave us a comment and share our pages with friends, if you can, to indulge our blogging habit, help us grow and encourage us on the trip into the second year of Tiki Tiki-ing.

Most importantly, this week is a Thank You  to our readers who hang with us here and on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube too.

We love you mucho and we’re grateful you give us your time.

We’ve had a blast this year, and we hope you have too.

Gracias y pa’lante!

Carrie and Marta
