Cheers to another celebration!

After looking through a couple memories from 2012, it surprises me that I didn't automatically think of this year as one of the greatest. I think it might be that so many wonderful and magical things happened, I might not have believed them to all be jammed packed into 365 days. 
That excites me. 
That  means another year of potential is about to begin. Usually I have an idea of what the year is going to hold- This is the first year in a long time that I have absolutely no clue. While normally that's fine , I'm kinda nervous about it this time around. Then I read this quote: 

Bring it on 2013 and Cheers to 2012
To family- both the ones I'm blessed with and the ones I've made

To welcoming new family 

To travel (lots and lots of travel!)

To new experiences

To growing old, but never up

To Florida State University

 To hard work making big dreams come true 

And to Jake Gyllenhaal <3

Too close for comfort

The end of summer is getting closer and closer. In other words, I've been thinking about the past few months. When they began, I was excited, but also wondering how in the world they were going to stand next to the summer I had abroad the year before. Not to shabby. (: Even thou I'm so excited for my senior year at FSU to begin, it's going to be hard to put an end to a summer that's gone from Monaco to Muir. Luckily, I can reminisce here!

It took me a while to realize what I was doing in Tally this summer. On my way home yesterday, I had 8 hours to realize not only what the reason was, but how well worth it it was. I spent the summer doing a lot of everything and a lot of nothing with my best friend. I always think about on my wedding day saying "oh that was my roommate in college". I think I've heard that phrase in about 8 movies, and since I pretend I live in one, I get pretty excited knowing I'll stay so close to mine to be able to say that one day. The thing is,  roommate and best friend underestimate the fabulous. I may have said my goodbyes to who I have been living with for 3 years, but it was just a simple "see ya later" to my sister (:  #keepitcheesy

With Spain's win in the semi's yesterday, I almost hopped on a plane to go celebrate in one of my favorite cities on the planet. My bank account is a little more realistic than I am, and so, I'll travel back here with you all (: 

The first time we met I had fun and I flirted and like every newbie, I fell in love. Second time around, we grew a little closer and Barcelona even met my family. 
This time, things got a little more serious.
 It was one of the best feelings in the world being able to show off the beauty and intelligence that make Barça so damn sexy. I can't put into words what comes over me here, but I can say that the next time we're together may the last time we separate (;

B to the Ack

Guesssss Who's back!!!
After globe trotting for a bit, I'm back in Uh Mer I Cuh!  Took about 2 hours until Debbie Downer hit. (Ya see what I did there (; ) 
Debbie is the tropical storm thats been hanging out in FL delaying my trip back to the Nasty. While she was off crying, I was home doing pretty much the same, because my holiday was over.   
and then wackata- 
Both the storm and my blues cleared up yesterday! 
I'm now happily typing away with a window full of bright skies behind me. Things may not have gone according to plan, but "the best is yet to come"  

Stay tuned for posts about this year's adventures abroad!

Sun day

I've been so wrapped up on going away, I've forgotten what a dream my own backyard is here in Miami.
Thinking about what's to come has me smiling.. but so does looking back on today (:

Blue skies up ahead.. or in today's case, even pink!

The Wedding

Almost a year ago, I got the call that my blonde bombshell was engaged!!! Last weekend happy tears were shed yet again as my cousin made her way down the isle (: 

Couldn't be more grateful to be her maid of honor! Love you so much Tata! 

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Carballo!!!!

I first came in because of the name: Serendipity.
It's one of my favorite words. 
It is? Why? 
It's such a nice sounding word for what it means: 
 a fortunate accident.

Celebrating 21

I started celebrating my 21st birthday when I was probably 16 years old. Finally, the US government joined in on the excitement May 7, 2012. Surely, the Mayans were aware 2012 was the year my friends and I blew out 21 candles and dubbed it the end of the world.
In which case, the celebrations have only begun.

In true fashion, I might have already misplaced my ID already. 
Not to worry, little can stop me.
