I HATE THE BEACH



Went to the beach in Long Island yesterday to celebrate July 4th with Keith's family. I hate the beach - especially the one we went to because it filled with rocks and not sand (also I had a poor shoe choice....why on earth I thought wearing heels to the beach was a good idea is beyond me). My back is burnt - I really just dislike sweating. I'm such a complainer, I need to stop complaining.

On our drive home we saw fireworks - it was beautiful, although I was nervous we'd get into an accident since it was really distracting however it was the best firework show I've ever experienced.

Engaged







I haven't blogged in months. I figure I should write a blog post since recently something life changing happened (aha). I went to Paris + Amsterdam in May, and got engaged! It was the sweetest proposal. Keith took me on a Seine River Dinner Cruise in Paris. All through dinner he was acting really quiet - I was beginning to get annoyed because of it. When we were close to the end of dinner he asked the waiter to take a polaroid picture of us two, and that's when he popped the question (in front of every one on the boat! I was so shy!). I of course said yes! I wish I could relive the moment. As it was happening my mind was blank - it all just happened so fast, as life does. 

Once we departed from the boat we sat under a bridge and listened to wildfire by Frank Ocean/John Mayer. It started raining a little. A random guy stopped by us and handed me single red rose. 

The night ended at a random cafe by our hotel with prosecco + (I think he ordered an old fashion?).

Portugal










This was the first of many more trips I've ever taken with my mom alone and probably one of the best trips I've ever been on. I'm so happy and grateful I had the chance to spend my 26th birthday in Portugal with no one other than my mama - also she is such a fun travel partner! 

Anyway Portugal was beautiful left and right. The buildings had so much character, and I love love love all the tiling details. We stayed in Lisbon, and took day trips to Sintra, Fatima, Obidos, and Cascais. The food was so cheap, and getting around with out a car is really easy. 

I would definitely go back....especially for pastel de natas and cheap green wine :)
