Sunny September

The two Septembers I have spent in Spain have been oh so sunny and filled with everyone wearing shorts and skirts in a weird mixed up "why is it hot now and not in July-how long can I really pull off wearing my sandals?" way. My dreams of boots, scarves and red lips have been on's been too hot. But I bought Conde Nast Traveler magazine on Friday and have been enviously dreaming about other things all weekend:
Rome-Diego and my next big destination. He's never been, I can't wait to go back with him and eat pizzas, pastas, and gelatos next to ageless statues on stoney streets.
Wine Routes in Spain-One of many routes featured, here in Galicia white wines are king- following the trail of Albariños and Ribiero. A perfect weekend trip driving through the autumnal country side, stopping at wineries, smelling the vines, and spending the night at a rural inn.

Barcelona- Another place Diego's never been. It's so close-one of my good friends lives there-and there is pan con tomate, amazing markets, and Gaudi. I think it deserves an annual trip.

Finally, I can't stop thinking of Santorini. We loved it soo much on our honeymoon. The greek isles are so amazing, blue, friendly, delicious. We'd buy a little place on Perissa beach like Ntomatini, a wonderful organic restaurant we discovered owned by a bicultural couple-he's greek, she's American- who packed up and moved to paradise to open their cute and seriously delicious restaurant. But while we keep dreaming I'm on the search to find the scent Santorini (bergamot, verbena, vetyver, rosewood, sandalwood and cardamom) by Antica Farmacista for the house.

1. don't stay by the train station -you know what I'm talking about, hahaha.

2. I can't believe Diego has never been to Barcelona?!

...but I guess I've never been to D.C. or LA so it's forgivable.
