End of Summer
And just like that the summer is almost over. Although there were some stressful moments, I'm grateful I also had a chance to relax and enjoy myself with friends and family. Thanks be to God! ;) As we approach Labor Day I'm hoping to take advantage of the sun and warm temperature before fall and winter arrive. Here's a little recap.
Enjoying s'mores in New Jersey as we celebrate our friends' one-year wedding anniversary and their new baby. Good times!
I've been trying to go out more. I love being home and watching Netflix while snacking on guac and chips, but "los tiempos que se van, no vuelven," and I'm trying to "live it up!" I've been hitting the Meatpacking District way more than I expected this summer - just like the good old days. Heck, I even went to Piano's in the Lower East Side. I haven't been there since my early 20's!

I love this romper. Too bad I can't really wear it out of the house.
Paris! It was my first time in Europe and we tried to visit as many places as possible. We took a Mediterranean Cruise and stopped by Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Rome, Naples, and Pisa. We then flew to Portugal and completed our trip in Paris.

The orange rooftops of Alfama in Lisbon, Portugal. Some of the streets here remind me of my late grandmother's home in San Francisco de Macoris. - #Lisbon #Portugal #travel A photo posted by Mercedes Sanchez // BeChicMag (@bechicmag) on
Beach day in Palma de Mallorca, an island not too far from Ibiza.

And of course the fight to save the local church these past couple of months.
Do you have any end-of-summer goals or trips?
