Speaking of juicing… this happened last week, right? We bought it on Thursday and it arrived on Friday. side note: Amazon Prime I effing love you.
I plan to juice and juice and juice and juice because I’m a tad bit obsessed lately. Time to get things started right, you know?

I’ve been hearing murmurs about this place for awhile now and since we were still on ‘vacation’ last Friday, H and I decided to give the restaurant a shot. Boy, were we glad to have gone out on a limb!
^Inca Kola <3 – ps. check out the napkin stamp. Cute, am I right?
^We got empanadas to start. Um… Yum?!
^The craziest part about this place? See the above picture? That was one order! I guess I should have noted that the courses are typically served family style here. Needless to say we had major left overs that we inhaled over the rest of the weekend.
It would be remiss of me not to post close up pictures. So here goes nothing:
^rice and beans? yes please!
^the main attraction – muy delicioso!
^their salad pickings… dudes. when I saw the avocado? oh. em. gee.
^sausage and fries
This was my first foray into Peruvian cuisine and I must say I am super impressed.
ps. our wallets weep. mi tierrita on one night and pio pio the next? yipes!
pps. our waistline does too, which is why I’ve been juicing a lot these days.

There is this Colombian restaurant in Long Island that my husband and I have been going to for years.
They have the best empanadas & churrasco I’ve tasted yet. It’s gotten a lot pricier as the years go by though. And their service could use a little upgrading because seriously? We go there and are forgotten by our waiters or waitresses all the time. It’s kind of ridiculous. Even still, we go back yearly just to taste their food. No more than that though because H gets pissed off when our servers disappear on us. It never fails.
So yeah… Food 4 and a half stars. Service is a 1 and a half.
Oh yes! I almost forgot to mention my favorite Spanish soda… Inca Kola. SO. GOOD.
Then we headed to the beach. This ^ was fun.
And we ended up catching this ^.
And this ^.
Amazing isn’t it?

^view from kerry park
^fresh squeezed orange juice
^the loveless cafe
^a view of home as the plane begins its descent.
As I sit here and look back at all the photos I've taken during this recent trip to places afar, I can't help but marvel at how much emotion each picture calls to memory.
This vacation was memorable for a few reasons...
-the husband and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary
-after obsessing about Seattle for a long time & watching the Bachelor this past season which made me yearn to visit even more, the fact that this dream came true leaves me speechless and so so pleased.
-visiting Nashville leads to so many thoughts about possible changes in store for the future.
There is simply too much to write about this trip and since I am a visual person, I think the following slide show will tell the story better. Oh and in case you need music to listen along with (and I am all for listening to music) here's a playlist that I think might be nice to go watch the slideshow with.
