it was a quick, one day trip to san antonio and to austin that we did last weekend. we did more than the stuff pictured, but i wanted to share these photos since i thought they looked pretty neat.

we were offered two spray cans to graffiti, but we declined. i kind of do feel bad for painting over other artist’s art. people come here and spend hours working on a master piece and by the next day it is gone. what you’re seeing is probably covered by now. everyone paints what they want. i guess that’s what also keeps the park interesting. you never know what you’re gonna find.

we also may or may not have spent 2 hours searching through lego pieces to build a star wars millennium falcon, and we also may or may not have eaten chick-fil-a twice in a week.. oops.

anyway, i hope you’re having a nice day! thanks for stopping by!

this is a really late post.

more than a month later, really.

oops. that was my fault. i had the intention of uploading this earlier,

but things out of my control happened.

i really did miss writing to you, my friends;

sharing my adventures and reading yours.

anyway,

boyfriend and i drove to corpus christi during the week of final exams.

(some of our friends said we were crazy for doing so. but we didn’t care. we loved it.)

it was kind of a quick, well-deserved break.

we picked up some legos from craigslist;

adopted a guinea pig who seriously needed a new forever home (named him Moose because of his long snout);

and went to the lexington (well, the outside of it and the beach surrounding it) since david had never seen it.

i love showing him new things. it’s that amazed face he makes. like a kid in a toy store, but cuter.

i live for adventures like this with him.<3

i made my first little video diary, too, if you want to see it:

song by León Larregui // “Mar” // Voluma

thanks for stopping by friends, i appreciate it!

see you soon..

a weekend in mexico city with the boyfriend

hello friends! if you read my blog, you’ll notice that my family and i often go to mexico city. we just love it. i don’t know, something about that place is special..

during spring break, boyfriend invited me to go with him, his dad, and brother. i think it’s the first time david and i travel by plane together elsewhere. we are lucky to have had the chance to do so. it was so much fun. here are some pictures of our trip in case you’re interested. as always, i appreciate you taking the time to read my posts! :)

the good and bad of life lately..

how are you!? I’ve missed you, my wordpress friends! feels so good to be writing to you again. (i mean, my last post was less than 20 days ago, but it feels longer!)

as the title suggests, i have a couple of good and bad news to share with you..

the good:

  • david and I went to mexico city for the weekend of spring break.
  • it was so neat to be in a city i really enjoy with someone i really love.
  • we went to museums and the pyramids.

the bad:

  • while we were over there, i got a call from my mother saying Linda, my beloved 3 year old guinea pig, had passed away.
  • we don’t know what happened or why she died. it was a shock for all us. my mother especially, since she’s the one who found her.
  • i think that since david and i were in a big city with his family, we weren’t able to cry or digest her death properly. we had to hide our emotions in front of everyone and keep going.
  • when we got back home, we buried her next to her brother, napoleón, who also left us this past october.

positivity:

  • if linda was sick or if she suffered, anything, she is free of it and she is now with her brother, and they are both happily eating cilantro in piggy heaven. –– at least that’s what i tell myself.
  • I planted flowers around their little tombs and they’re already raising from the ground. other plants i also have are blooming too. –– makes me happy
  • i still have one more piggy with me, and since he’s a baby he needs a lot of attention and activities. –– so i also have to keep going cuz of him.
  • life is still good. god is great. everything happens for a reason. my guinea pigs and i have people who love us and we love them. ♥

we will miss you terribly linda.

anyway friends, i guess i just wanted to write this to have a little post in honor of Linda, since this is a space i truly love. more lifestyle, diy, travel posts coming your way pretty soon. sorry this is a little bit of a sad post, i just needed to write about this since a lot of people don’t understand how losing a  four-legged loved one is also a horrible feeling.

are you well? i hope so.

love you guys.

thanks for sticking around.
