Corpus Christi: Selena stamp

Did anyone else grow up listening to Selena? I learned how to do the cumbia to "La Carcacha", danced it with my uncles across the dusty floor at my hometown VFW, and like every other South Texan Latina girl in the 80s and 90s completely identified with her and the fine line she walked between being connected to her Mexican heritage, but also completely American. In 2011 Selena Quintanilla Perez gets her own United States Postal Service stamp. You can be sure that it will be on all my outgoing mail.


  1. I always think of Selena when I go through Corpus. I love seeing a fellow Texan blogger! I would love for you to check out my blog, The In's & Out's of Sometimes Having It All, I am new and love any feedback and new followers!! ;)
