Not every year you can have such a significant birthday. Not every year you turn 21. Today I’m specially loving celebrating 21 (not for me..I wish though…) all over again. My friend and neighbor Laynee turned 21 and we celebrated with a fun outing.


I know, I know! I know we have a big gap in our age difference and she could easily be my little sister but Laynee is like no other 21 year old. We have a very good relationship, my kids adore her and her youth and desire to enjoy to the fullest keeps me motivated each and every day. I am really lucky to live where I live, to have “family” surrounding me for my AMAZING neighbors indeed feel like family to me.


So we took her to this Mexican place, which cannot get any more authentic. And some of my Zumba friends joined in the fun, too


The place had live music, a mariachi band and some of the best Mexican food in the valley. We got sung and serenaded to. Here the singer doing an imitation of Elvis with the song “Fools rush in.” And as a new song or genre would start, he would change hats or wigs. He was pretty funny!

We finished our evening with happy hearts and happy tummies. We finished our evening by remembering to hold on to our youth and to continue living life to its fullest.

P.S. Loving my hair headband I got at Claires
