Today’s post is going to be very brief. Being the first day of detox week (after Thanksgiving and this past weekend, it’s very much needed), I’ll likely spend most of my day in the kitchen, planning the menu and preparing the bases of our meals.
Planning a detox week does take a little bit of work, but, I promise you, it’s so worth it! You feel like a brand new person once it’s over.
It’s been quite chilly in Guatemala these past few days and I’ve been enjoying every minute of it! It’s finally time for indulgent homemade hot chocolate (yum!), Christmas cookies and movie marathons under fluffy and cozy throws. This is, indeed, my favorite time of the year- by far.
As I mentioned, last Thursday we attended Saul E Mendez’s fashion show and 60th Anniversary celebration. The night was, as expected, very well planned and organized, and the venue yet another beautiful Guatemalan landmark. You’ve got to give it to Saul’s team…they always choose the most interesting locations to hold their events.
Vacations are never long enough. This time, in particular, everything felt so rushed…just as we started to slow down, it was time to jump back on the plane and come back home.
I think everyone can agree that New York City is always a fun city to visit. With so much to do and see, it is impossible to sit still. Maybe it was just me, but I felt the city was even more electric that weekend with the excitement, anticipation and adrenaline from the 50,000 plus marathoners and their families.
What a weekend, huh? Traffic was unbearable. I had some important errands to run up in Carretera Al Salvador, but due to the landslide, I had to cancel and postpone it for another day.
Normally I don't mind the rain, I quite enjoy it actually (it makes for cozy movie nighs), but I think I've had enough of it at this point. Bring on the beautiful November weather!
On Friday night, I had to make a quick, overnight trip to Mexico City to meet with a friend to talk about a very complex yet fun project I am currently working on. The upside of overnight trips? Traveling light. The downside? It's extremely exhausting.
After an hour and a half delay, we arrived in D.F. at about 1:00a.m. hungry and anxious to get to our hotel and rest, because later that morning, we were going to meet with our friend for a brief breakfast meeting. So, it's fair to say that I didn't get much sleep this weekend- at all.
Hello everyone, I really hope you all had a fun and restful weekend. As usual, for us it was a weekend filled with work, errands and lots of running.
For the first time during our 4 years living here in Guatemala, we finally decided to give "Pasos y Pedales" a try during our long Sunday run. To be very honest, I quite enjoyed it! It was really nice to change things up a bit. Not to mention, it was highly motivating to see so many people running, bike riding, rollerblading and walking with their families and furry children outside. We definitely need more of that!
Happy Monday, everyone! Today I am in a specially good mood because I feel so blessed for everything that has been happening. I may be overwhelmed, extremely busy, stressed out and sleep deprived, but I am so happy and grateful that none of that matters.
This week has flown by- actually, this entire year! Can you believe it's already October? Last weekend, while running some routine errands, I noticed some stores have already put out their christmas merchandise! It's crazy, huh? And to think that exactly one year ago my husband and I were finalizing the plans of our Paris-Thailand-Vietnam month-long trip. Gosh, that was so much fun!
I think we can all agree that animal print has been huge these past couple of years. Not only was it a must-have trend for the spring and summer seasons, it is, once again, marking a strong presence during our transition into fall and winter.
