Fly Cali cool circa 1980

Meet my rad dad Cesar, and my equally rad mom Alicia, looking as fly as can be in 1980, one year before they got married. In this photo, they’re just hanging and mutually soaking up each other’s inherent awesomeness in the kitchen of my grandparents’ old house in West Covina, Calif. 

Dad’s mustache (which he still sports to this day)? Rad. Mom’s high-waisted denim and curly bangs? Rad. Weird calendar of a bull in the background? Mexi-rad.
