While in Dallas, I learned a little bit of family history while shopping at Design Within Reach. My mom and I were walking around when she spotted these lunch boxes. She got so excited because she had been looking for some like these for ages. When my mom was a little girl in Mexico, her father used a lunch box just like this. It has several compartments for different types of foods. It even has small dishes to serve the food on. My mom came from a broken family, that she rarely speaks of. This is one of only of hand full of things she has ever told me about my grandfather. Actually, I have never even seen a picture of the man! Now these little lunch pales offer a connection to my heritage, I would have never imagined.
