The past month has been quite a handful. Lots of changes forthcoming (which comes with a lot of stress), but change is good and I can't wait to share with you all. Firstly, very excited for our trip to Italy next week to celebrate my friend's wedding in Tuscany. This will be a really nice break from it all and some quality time away to spend with the hubby. I'll be sure to do travel diaries when we return, but follow along on my Instagram for daily updates :)

Old San Juan is such a beautifully quaint city. I've had the pleasure of visiting two years ago while on my first trip to Puerto Rico, and it was really wonderful to revisit my favorite places, as well as discover new ones with my bests. We took a taxi from our hotel and got dropped off in the middle of Old San Juan. It was a bit sweltering that day so we made it a priority to stop by Cuatro Sombras Coffee for refreshing drinks, where they had the cutest backyard garden where we hung out for awhile. We then made our way up and down the hills to eat the most amazing fish ceviche, seafood pizza, and agua frescas (white grape was the fruit of the day!) at St. Germain Bistro & Cafe. Yujin and I bought these matching hats with custom ribbons at Ole Curiosidades (friendship hats to remember this trip by), and finished off the day with piña coladas and some delicious meat/seafood + rice dishes for dinner at El Jibarito. I'm sure there are so many more amazing eateries and places to check out, but I'm glad all these places were solid and we had a really nice afternoon exploring all of the charming streets. Until next time!

A few of my bests and I took a trip to The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort in Puerto Rico earlier this month to celebrate Fran and Yujin's 30th birthdays, we well as Fran's bachelorette (bride-to-be in May!). We escaped just in time before the NYC blizzard hit to spend a blissful four days in paradise. The hospitality was incredible, and the food must have had to be the best ever at a resort, thanks to Chef Jean-Georges leading Fern, the main restaurant on property. The octopus and hamachi we had for dinner was out of this world. The pools were gorgeous, as well as the beach just steps from our room. Thank you so much to my girls for the memories of an unforgettable trip, and The St. Regis for an incredible stay. We also took a short trip into Old San Juan one of the days, so stay tuned for my next post on some beautifully colorful buildings, blue cobblestone streets, and delicious eats!

The weather has been absolutely yo-yo so far this year, sometimes 60+ degrees one day, and blizzarding the following. It's been a great start to 2017 nonetheless. I've been trying not to overwhelm my schedule too much, as the end of last year has been absolutely chaotic and has left me mentally and physically exhausted. Spending more time with my loved ones has been a priority and just investing energy in more things I truly care about. I've also returned from a trip to Puerto Rico this past weekend with a few of my best girl friends to celebrate their birthdays and bachelorette, so can't wait to share those images with you in my next post!
