5 things on turks and caicos

5Things_TC-700x944hey friends, i’m over at hither & thither today, sharing a few of my favorite things about turks and caicos.

ashley is the freelance writer and blogger behind hither & thither, a lifestyle and travel blog based in davis, in northern california. in her 5 things series, she asks bloggers in different cities to share what they’d do with a visiting friend to best show off what their area has to offer. also, check out her home tour at a cup of jo, it’s pretty amazing!

julia-3352julia at 19 months –  our favorite coffee dates at lemon 2 go, where she gets spoilt rotten with attention. she brings toy, her favorite pet, for a walk.. i’ll ask her if she wants to go to the coffee shop and she’ll reply “chá” (which means tea in portuguese), coffee seams so much harder to say, so tea works fine ♡

on instagram lately / 09

august-instagram-by-myseastoryoops, i’ve been totally slacking on these instagram lately posts, too bad because i actually really enjoy posting these, and looking back at the past month.

august was hectic, and fun. the first couple of weeks we were in lisbon, had a lot of family time but some great mom-daughter time too, which i really missed. then we flew back to provo with my mum, with the usual pitch stop in miami, and got to enjoy her for a few days here on island.

this is a very tricky time of the year in provo, most families come back from vacation and are getting ready to go back to school this week. at the same time, most restaurants and stores close for the month of september, if not longer, so the island becomes very quiet.
