Happy Cinco de Mayo

It’s Cinco de Mayo (quarantine edition)! Just cause we’re stuck at home does not mean we can let one of the best holidays pass without being celebrated!

When I think of Cinco de Mayo I think of bright colors, delicious food and margaritas! I did a little round up of one of my favorite shoots we did with Charla Storey a while back. This shoot reminds me of fiestas and friends and I’ll be channeling these vibes tonight with my family as we celebrate!

If you need a little Cinco de Mayo inspo I’m including two of my all time favorite margarita recipes that have been on constant rotation in this quarantine life! Grab your roommate, your dog or your partner and saddle up to the bar er…kitchen counter and whip up some margs to wash down your chips and queso! Cheers!
