september is typically the quietest month on island, it’s the peak of tropical storms and hurricane season, and most restaurants are closed for vacation and refurbishment. ours was quite the opposite, with all the packing and organizing for our move. it was also a very emotional month, saying “see you soon” (would hate to say good bye!), spending as much time as we could with our friends and trying to make the most out of (barefoot) island life – we still managed to fit in one more trip to parrot cay and a long overdue weekend in south caicos. now, we’re so ready for what october has to offer!

myseastory turns 4!

myseastory-turns-4it’s been 4 years today since i first started blogging – it’s been interesting to share my last years on the blog, with highs and lows, with more or less inspirations, before and after attending blogshop, and pre and post pregnancy. through the blog, i’ve met amazing bloggers and (hope) to have helped many people who write to me asking for tips and recommendations on turks and caicos.

the purpose of the blog was initially to create a place to find a more personal view on life in turks and caicos, wether you’d want to move here or spend your vacation. then i decided to share our traveling adventures too. but most of all, i really, really enjoy having a visual diary of my experiences on island, now being julia a big part of it.

april-instagram-by-myseastoryin april julia and i had a girls trip to denver – we had a great time with our friends who used to live just next door to us in provo, and met julia since she was a newborn. we also had my cousin finally visiting and it was so much fun showing her around the island. the weather’s been really hot, sometimes it feels like summer has arrived way too early – not complaining though, we’ve been really enjoying late afternoons by the beach and pool.

guest-post-rita-1my cousin rita finally came to visit – she’s not only my cousin, my bestie and almost like my sister. and it felt strange, in some way, that she wasn’t part of my life here in turks and caicos. it was specially nice having her, meeting our friends, showing her our favorite places and being part of our routine for a week, helping me plan the meals for the week and much needed catch ups!

so i asked her a few questions about her stay in turks and caicos and this is what she thought – Continue reading
