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.
