I spotted this adorable family selling delicious corn tamalitos while they waited at the side of the road for their ride to be repaired.
I asked if they’d like to take pictures with me and they all happily accepted. The momma scolded her oldest daughter into tying her hair up (she refused, as you can tell), then prepared to strike a pose as her second son joined us.
Getting them to smile in front of the camera was quite the challenge! Momma bear likes to pose like a boss: straight face, crossed arms. If you can’t beat’em, join’em!
We took a few more shots until the bus driver let us know they were ready to go. They packed up my tamales and then hopped back on the bus through the back door, mom with a little help from her kids. ♥
I don’t know if it’s a cultural thing but, in my house, whenever you acquire new things you then have to give a couple away. However, there are several pieces in my closet I’ve never been able to get rid of. This hawaiian print dress is one of them. It’s the easiest thing to wear in tropical weather and ruffles are my addiction!

Anyway, here’s a shot at a variation of my typical, daily eyeliner, thanks to Pinterest. So many good ideas out there, I need to change things up a bit!
