This year I am very excited for my birthday. We have a lot of fun things planned and I can’t wait to celebrate with everyone here in Buenos Aires. It’s also extra special this year because my birthday falls on a national holiday, giving us all a nice long four-day weekend. To kick-off a week of festivities, Steph and I decided to treat ourselves to a spa day. We gave ourselves good pedicures (after being appalled by the state of our feet), deep conditioned our hair, and did açaí facials. We also decided to make a nice pitcher of white sangria (similar to this). One of my favorite summer beverages, white sangria is always the perfect compliment to a hot day. We chopped up green apples, peaches, mangos and oranges, and added it to a mixture of Sauvignon Blanc and 7Up (we unfortunately could not find Triple Sec). The sangria was great and made our spa day extra enjoyable.
