We found a coconut in the woods that was actually fresh and edible! Fran was reallllly excited about it :)

Major attempts to open it, and we were actually successful! A few sips were definitely worth it ;)

A few of my bests and I took a trip to The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort in Puerto Rico earlier this month. We escaped just in time (we quickly arranged to leave the night before instead of the morning after when the blizzard in NYC hit or else we would not have made it!) 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!

Warm Winter Weekend in LA

A quick weekend trip out to LA with the hubbie for an event to attend and to also see Cynthia and baby Miles (ahhh!). I'm told LA winters are usually pretty mild, but it was unusually warm that weekend, temperatures rising up to 80 degrees. We had no complaints about that tho :) We spent most of Saturday exploring the Arts District (which evolves radically and has a plethora of new stores and restaurants on every visit) and Little Tokyo where we had some really yum bubble tea out of a bubble tea truck and Japanese street food bites. LA trips are always too short, but always a good time. Hopefully next time will happen sooner than later!
