Summer is my favorite time of the year. I love the heat, the sun and the salty air. Summer ’16 has definitely been one of the best so far. Because summer is officially over now, I wanted to reminisce over that magical season. The last 3 months were jam packed with lots of great memories.
We welcomed the summer season with a trip to San Diego (our favorite Cali city) to celebrate the 4th of July! R & I meet up with our friends and spent 4 amazing days in SD.
My cousin Layal visited us for a few days here in San Francisco. She was our official first visitor in our apartment here in SF! First, we showed her around northern California for a few days. We took her to Napa, Sausalito and showed her our favorite spots! We also took her to our favorite sushi bistro which quickly became her favorite too! If you’re in San Francisco or Bay Area you should check out Zen Sushi Bistro.
Then we all flew down to Las Vegas for 4 days of insanity… When in Vegas! It was her first trip to the US and we wanted to show her as much as possible! If you follow me on Snapchat you would’ve seen how much we partied, drank and laughed! It was such an amazing and fun trip.
Also this summer, I attend my very first BlogHer conference in Los Angels! I met so many lovely and inspirational women there. It really made me feel so proud to be part of this blogging community. We also got the chance to catch up with our friends while were there.
R & I travelled to Portland for the very first time this August. Portland surprised us for sure and quickly became one of our favorite cities to visit. If you’re a foodie, you must pay Portland a visit! Read about our adventures here, here and here.
Summer ’16 was definitely kind to us. Although it makes me sad to say goodbye to such an amazing season, I’m finally ready to welcome fall. Especially that in just a few weeks, R & I will be headed to Hawaii for birthdays/anniversary trip. Both our birthdays and our wedding anniversary are in October!
