Nerd-ing it Up

(Before movie... we had read some of the reviews so expectations were low / After movie... speechless at its awesomeness)

Darlings,
It's true.

This last weekend brought out Sean's and I
nerd alter egos.

No, we are not ashamed.

Best movie EVER... after Gone With the Wind, of course.



PS. Don't worry Wonder Woman, you're still my girl.

Traveling with Brenda

Darlings,
I have a special treat for you.

My lovely friend Brenda has decided to share with you 
 all about her travels this summer.

You will love her. 
Promise.

----------------------

Ce fut une expérience merveilleuse. Paris, la ville de l´amour, était très romantique. 

Favorite memory from this trip? Boat ride on the Seine River. Hands down. I thought my heart would explode of joy, definitely one of the most romantics experiences in my life. On the riverside you could see couples 
kissing under the moon light and groups of friends having picnics as they enjoyed of parisian music. Along the Seine was a park where couples were dancing tango to add to the romance. Definitely this boat trip wasn't meant to be taken without that special someone by your side.

You don't need magic to disappeared. All you need is a destination.


Even a few kilometers before arriving, could already distinguish Mont Saint-Michel imposing silhouette. I was VERY   impressed.  The chilly fog hid most of the top of the castle making it look somewhat gloomy and gothic. Truly one of the                                                    most magical and unique experiences of my life.

Sandwiched between Brugges, Brussels and Antwerpen. The little gem of a city is host to some of the most gorgeous attractions. Unfortunately, this medieval art-town between Belgium's big three is often overlooked by tourists.  Good thing I didn't because I had
 a scrumptious waffle dipped in Nutella and the very best French fries there.

Gruyeres is a medieval town located in the upper valley of the Saane river.
What I enjoyed the most was looking at the green mountains with the cows and sheep grazing. 

I mean, that's not something you see a lot of here in the States.

Monaco is located between mountains and sea in the very heart of Europe. I would say this makes it the ideal destination for a romantic vacation. I was impressed at how dynamic and oriented towards the future Monaco's economy is. Of course, money doesn't seem to be lacking in Monaco with expensive stores like Chanel, Valetino, and Versace in every corner... and casinos, of course.

Love,
Brenda

today is a good day


Darlings,
I got the job... a month before graduating.

I get to put aside my STUDENT badge sooner than I had dreamed of.

God has blessed me beyond words and for 
that I am so grateful.

This is going to be an amazing learning/growing experience 
that will prepare me for med school in ways otherwise impossible.

 I just hope this midnight shift treats me good hehe

Happy Happy 4th

My lovely aunt


Darlings,
This year's celebrations was probably one of the
most laid back yet and I loved every minute of it.

I rode the train the night before to my aunt's town
were I spent the night. After a delicious home-cooked
breakfast, a walk downtown, fro-yo, and a break
dancing performance (definitely not by yours truly),
we concluded the days celebrations by sitting
on a small hill "ooooh-ing" and "aaaah-ing"
over the fireworks.

It was a good day.
(Instagram-ing it... of course)

The family

Darlings,
So like I mentioned here, we liked the Falls so much that 
we had to go back a couple of days later for more. 

Great times.
