Puerto Rico

I'm back from Puerto Rico. Jenny (she's on the picture on the left) and I went to visit our good friend Laura (she's on the photo below with me) last week. We all started working within a week from one another 8 years ago.

Since then Laura has moved to Florida, and then Puerto Rico with her husband and had two adorable boys. Jenny has moved to NYC, earned MBA and is now living in NYC.

And I'm still here...

This was my second and Jenny's first trip to Puerto Rico. I was so looking forward to seeing Laura and her family again and soaking in a bit of Puerto Rican sun.

Unfortunately Jenny could only stay a few days, while I stayed the entire week! I got to see Laura's oldest son play soccer, we made several delicious dinners, went to her in-laws for Thanksgiving, baked a chocolate flourless cake (YUM), went shopping, painted our toenails and watched Nip/Tuck and Glee. On my last night in Puerto Rico, Laura and Carlos took me out for Argentinian food and I got "a bit" tipsy on white sangria: what a perfect end to a fun vacation!

We had a fabulous time together. I did not take a ton of pictures because we mostly just hung out and did everyday "stuff." But here are a few from our day trip to the Old San Juan and one of the forts.

These gorgeous orchids live on a tree right outside of Laura's house. They only bloom for a day, and I was lucky enough to witness this rare event! They even had a very mild, but sweet scent.

And these are the gorgeous views of the clear blue water. Don't you just want to jump in?

I will blog about food later this week on Mango & Tomato.
