Journey to America : Celebrate America’s Birthday with Honey Maid

Disclosure: This is part of a sponsored campaign with Being Latino and Honey Maid. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

Unless you are an American Indian, I will venture to say you’re an immigrant here in the land of the free. You, or a member of your family in generations past, journeyed to America from another country. Have you heard their story? Have you shared yours?

Celebrate America’s Birthday

I recently learned about my Juelita’s journey to America. In fact, Colby shared it with me. He and my dad spent some time together and my dad told him the story. I had never even heard it so was intrigued by the details. My Juelita has been gone for several years… and this short story touched my heart.

Born in Mexico, Juelita’s family, like many, wanted a life in America. She, along with her sisters, prepared to ride a bus into the states one day. Being the smallest, her sister hid my Juelita underneath a bus seat. When they collected the fare, they did not see her and there she rode. Why? Because her sister did not have the extra nickel to cover her fare! But together they made it into America.

This is my family’s story, but no matter how things change, what makes us wholesome never will. Honey Maid provides wholesome snacks for every wholesome family. Today, we find ways to blend both cultures seamlessly in all things… especially celebrations! Speaking of celebrations, there is a big one coming up! This 4th of July, add s’mores to the festivities for the ultimate way to celebrate America’s birthday. You can even check out Honey Maid’s deliciously sweet tips and ideas for endless s’more fun for fabulous ideas.
