We are bringing the snapshots back!
A couple of days ago we were planning the calendar for the blog and had a sudden realization: we have been neglecting the snapshots section since April (!). But is never too late and we have today a refreshing summer edition with the snaps from our phones from May to August; there’s always a silver lining, right?
Want to re-enjoy the summer, but this time with us? Keep browsing! Also, don’t forget to let us know in the comments section how your summer looked like.
Can you consider May already to be summer? I know it actually starts on June but we already started having so much hot days (specially at the end) that I think I have a good excuse to include it. On May we visited New York City, which was a dreamy time, but we have already share too much of the city to include more pics here. Instead we have the other pics, with Juno and Dani looking for a photoshoot location.
On June we discovered places in Barcelona that have climbed up to the top of our eating list.
La Central café is one of those places that makes you wish you were the only one who knew about it, but it’s too cute to not share, so here it is. It’s a cafe located on the corner of a bookstore owned by the same guys of Cosmo & Cometa (favs) which is a guarantee for yummy sandwiches & perfect chai lattes. Also love their summer ice tea!
There is an obvious trend in Barcelona with Baos, and I think we found our favorite at Bao Bar. They are more a re-imagination of them by using Spanish/Catalan ingredients inside the famous steamed buns.
Finally the third foodie discovery was thanks to a recommendation by our friends Marcel & Silvia: a Vietnamese restaurant called Mon Viet (which, in fact, means Vietnamese Kitchen). A part from the food, good price-quality relationship we like its industrial looks.
July was one of those months that felt much longer than the 31 days it has, with still no vacation at sight and lots of things going on at work, we spent most of the weekends at home with our Juno dreaming about August. We tried a good seafood paella for Dani’s mom birthday, paella is always a good treat!
August was an emotional month but also brought a wonderful getaway to Gloucestershire & Oxford. I only wish we could have left Juno inside the travel bag as she was in the pictures, I always miss her so much but something about her “i’m-afraid-of-everything” behavior tells me she is not the travel type, ha!
The most cute thing happens when we come back from any travel. We live in an apartment building and have to walk a (short) corridor from the elevator to our actual apartment, well, Juno starts meowing very (VERY) high just as we step outside the elevator. She can totally tell us apart & knows we are coming back home, it melts my heart every time.
On August we had my family visiting, our nephew Samuel is the cutest boy although he is starting to get older (today it’s his birthday, he turns 9), has still a childlike attitude which we love. When they left, we watched Dunkirk at the movies, which was a much more enjoyable experience that I had anticipated and very thrilling, and Baby Driver, which I loved (aesthetics, music, rythm!).
I also received the best of surprises, a Moomin postcard from Copenhagen written by my lovely penpal Kate. Thanks dear!
September is already here, and with the start of the school year, I do want to go back to the standard a single-month-recap snapshots post and much more new projects. Not that I have something in mind, just a wish! Oh! and in 5 days it’s my birthday, I’ll make sure to show my Pinterest wishlist to Dani, ha! (just kidding!)
