Summer Flowers

It's fairly grey and gloomy here in my hometown so I'm missing summer quite fiercely despite my love of all things autumnal. The truth is I love summer. I wish I had just a few more weeks of it before the chill sets in. I can already see my breath when I take my dog for his early morning walk.
I find myself looking at my pictures from Puerto Rico wishing for just a couple more days of heat, swimming and sundresses.

Puerto Rico: The Big News

Despite all the chaos of our trip to Puerto Rico that included hurricane evacuations, angry roosters and lack of electricity, the trip will always be special to me because my boyfriend, now fiance proposed to me. It's hard to be upset about all the little frustrations of the trip when something so wonderful happened too.

Bits of Boston

It happened again. I blinked and the summer is over. For a summer that did not involve any extended travel plans, I traveled way more than I ever imagined.
I'm still thinking about our trip to Boston, with all the amazing restaurants we tried. I still cannot get the mini biscuits and clam chowder of the Island Creek Oyster Bar out of my mind. One of my goals of the Fall is to replicate their Bergamot Buck, one of the best drinks I've ever had.
For a quick blitz of a trip, we packed so much into it, and tried so many new places.
