Last night was Dia de Los Muertos Girls Night Out on The Veranda. Since COVID hit we have abandoned our usual indoor bar hangout and have been celebrating outside using social distancing and masks. All of us except Shiva are fully vaxxed so we can gather safely though cautiously. Last night’s theme was to honor Frida Kahlo so we all did our best to represent her!
Even Shiva was dressed (in effigy) to be with us!
This 1000 piece puzzle tells Frida’s fascinating story.
Ready for the feast.
Candles, candles and more candles.
Even Diego Rivera came to dinner.
