So let's just say – not that this necessarily actually happened – but let's just say, just for the sake of argument, that perhaps your family dropped the ball a little bit on Mother's Day, or your birthday wasn't exactly celebrated with quite the fanfare which you might perhaps deserve .... and perhaps you need a little bit of a sonrisa today .... or let's just say that perhaps you need a smile for no reason at all!

Well, here is something that will definitely bring a smile to your face ...

Thanks to the incredibly brilliant Marisa Treviño, the brains behind Latina Lista (originally "just" a blog, soon to be a movement ... more on that in a separate post), I have discovered ....

The E-Serenata!!

How incredible is this??

Click on this link to be transported to a second story window, from which you are looking out onto a garden ... and there is a mariachi band below, just waiting to serenade you!

And then they do!

And – here is the best part – you can send an E-Serenata to anyone, for any occasion. OK, it does cost two bucks. But the proceeds go to the Mariachi USA festival, and certainly I don't mind supporting musicians.

So I got my serenata, and my sonrisa, today!

Now go to your window and enjoy your very own serenata!
