A Weekend Trip To The Dominican Republic Was Exactly What The Doctor Ordered

A few weeks ago, hubby and I decided to take an impromptu trip to the Caribbean. I wanted to try all inclusive and narrowed it down to the Dominican Republic.

It was the BEST trip I’ve ever been on in my LIFE and it was only 4 days long!! The minute we landed we headed straight to the beach, found a hut and slept for 3 hours blanketed by the warm breeze. We did no tours (which is something we are KNOWN FOR). We had no schedule. We just floated along from meal to meal and talked and relaxed and connected. It was so magical.

I have a MILLION PICTURES and a TON of video. Going to make a condensed version so you don’t spend 45 minutes watching my entire trip. Can’t wait to share the shots!!
