Hola! so I was on my Facebook and I see this notification/collage showing me everything I did this summer. I was like.... OMG! I forgot I did so much this summer. I honestly can't complain, I am content with everything I've done this year so far. Do you ever look back at what you have done? I think it's great to remember those moments some how. Whether it be written down in a journal, a printed booklet or writing a blog post about it. It can be something small like going to a baby shower, or a big accomplishment. I LOVE taking pictures of everything I do because at the end of the year I print out a little booklet. What did you do this summer?
WHAT I DID THIS SUMMER;
< Graduation/Girls trip to Puerto Rico (this was in late May, but I'll consider it summer):
I graduated May 3, 2017! My friend Amanda and I went to PR to celebrate. It was our first time going to a rain forest, El Yunque was lovely. We had the absolute best time, we stayed at a wonderful resort that had amazing views. I loved every single moment of that trip, it was such a magical experience. The food was amazing, the architecture, the rain forest.... such beauty.
ANOTHER BUCKET LIST CROSS OFF; MY FIRST WATERFALL
< Trip to Nicaragua
Last minute trip to see my family, I literally planned everything with in a week. Even though it was so rushed, I had a great time seeing my family and discovering new places. This time around I discovered San Juan Del Sur which was absolutely stunning! I also went to La Laguna de Apoyo which is a nature reserve located between the departments of Masaya and Granada in Nicaragua.
YOU MUST VISIT NICARAGUA!
< Cirque Du Soleil birthday present
Oooooof my best friend Amanda knocked one off my bucket list! She took me to see my very first Cirque Soleil show! what a wonderful surprise, and wonderful friend.
< Lissette's baby shower
My childhood friend of like.... 20 years had her first baby this year and it was so exciting to see her all dressed up for her baby shower. It's insane how fast we all grow up.
< Tri-rail adventures
I did a post about this like 2-3 posts ago...
Basically I surprised my boyfriend on an adventure to Deerfield Beach on the Tri-rail. We had never even heard about this local train in Miami. It was a great alternative to getting around. SO MUCH FUN!
