Easter Sunday

Monday, April 17, 2017


This weekend was great. It was everything I hoped it would be. I take full advantage of long weekends. I love making plans with friends and throwing parties. It makes me so happy to bring people together to have fun and enjoy life. Friday night I through a little get together at my apartment with mine and Paolo's friends and Sunday we spent the afternoon and evening on our friend's roof top.  The weather was beautiful and there was such a good energy all day long. The spring weather really does bring such a happy feeling with it. I love having the windows open in our apartment and feeling that breeze come through. Winter exists only to remind us how great spring feels! I swear we would forget to appreciate beautiful weather if we experienced it EVERY single day. I feel like variety in life is what keeps it interesting. 

It's been really fun dating Paolo because he has introduced me to a new culture of people. I love that we were raised so differently and we can share our backgrounds with each other. The Spanish culture is such a party and I love it. There is so much music, dancing and happiness. They really know how to celebrate life in a very good way. I think they just really know how to embrace what it means to enjoy and let lose! So much of our life is spent being focused and strict. We have so many responsibilities: work, relationships, finances etc. that we need to celebrate the moments that remind us that life is also fun and happy! Last night, Paolo and his friends were playing salsa music and dancing and I just thought it was so interesting because it is new and exciting to me. I guess the next step is showing him around Utah....lol and introducing him to how I grew up. It seems like a bit of a let down since Paolo was born in Dominican Republic and raised in New York City. But then again, his friends are always like, "What is Utah like?" They are so interested to know about my life and how I was raised. I guess life is all relative right? And our differences are what makes us so interested in one another.

Welcome Spring

I have to say, I really love photos!! And I love that it allows us to document our lives so well. Some mornings or nights before I go to bed, I scroll through my blog or Facebook and take a walk down memory lane. It makes me so happy to replay certain moments in time. I go through my college photos and remember my wonderful time spent at Utah State with all of my amazing friends. I go through photos of when I first moved to NYC to start a completely different chapter of my life and I go through photos of my two months spent living in Fiji which was also an amazing experience. 

Life has so many different stages and it's really great to be able to have snap shots of our lives to keep forever!! I am going on my fourth spring/summer living in NYC and I can't believe it! It really seems like yesterday that I moved here and I can't believe how far I have come! It's nice when you can look back on your life and feel like you have constantly been progressing. You take all your experiences, all the ups and downs and just think to yourself, "wow I have learned A LOT!" Because right? That is what life is, it really is a learning process and we are our experiences. 

The weather is FINALLY getting warm and beautiful. I am welcoming this spring with open arms. The sunny weather really does make me feel alive again. Last Sunday Paolo and I spent the afternoon in Chelsea area of the city. He wasn't feeling very well, but I really wanted to be out all day long! So him, being the amazing boyfriend that he is hung out with me. We ate good food, walked on the Chelsea High Line and just enjoyed the nice weather. I am really looking forward to this coming weekend, because it is a holiday which means and an extra day off work! YAAAY! 

Also, I included a song below from my favorite TV show Big Little Lies on HBO. They have an amazing sound track! :)

You're My Lobster

Saturday, April 8, 2017

Anyone who is a fan of the tv show Friends (like I am) gets my blog post reference. And it's funny how fitting it is for Paolo and I... not only because we love each other (and want to mate for life haha) but because we LOVE lobsters rolls too!! 

Paolo introduced me to Burger & Lobster, which we have been to a couple of times. Once on a date night and another time with friends!! Last night we went on a cute date to Luke's Lobster, a lobster roll restaurant right next store to my apartment! It was DELICIOUS! I feel like I am the worst at describing food because I am not like a foodie or anything....I am always just like yeah it was SO GOOD! You should try it lol. I am also not the best person to ask for recommendations, because I am easily pleased and I don't have strong opinions.

Isn't it so fun to have a boyfriend you can like totally hang out with all of the time, and do face masks, and just like talk about life? J.K..but seriously Paolo and I did a face mask together the other night, and believe it or not it was his idea. Maybe it was mine....I may have recommended it...but he was definitely excited to try it out. And we had a blast, like we always do when we are with each other. He is my lobster that I love so much!! xoxo
