Travel Diary, Chapter 50

A few weeks ago I traveled to the Dominican Republic for a friend’s wedding. I’d heard so many things about this popular “romantic getaway” destination, but turns out it’s a great vacation for a loving mother and son duo too.

We stayed at a beautiful all-inclusive resort in Punta Cana and it was worth every penny. As much as I love eating, I can easily say the buffets were where I got most of my return on investment. Well, there and the bar – best Pina Coladas I’ve ever had! I was truly in paradise.

I’ve always felt a little indifferent about beach weddings because the thought of dressing up to spend time on a beach seemed oxymoronic to me. I have to admit this experience changed my mind and my life because everything about the wedding was absolutely beautiful. Not only did the beach set the stage for breathtaking backdrops both live and in pictures, but such an intimate venue shared with a small gathering of family and friends made this ceremonial occasion even more special.

I would definitely visit Punta Cana again, but preferably when I have more time to venture out on some of their thrill-seeking excursions. Me in an ATV or zip lining ought to make for an interesting story (after recovery).

You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am but rather I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for a first approach; stick around and you'll understand the power behind that statement. What I do is another story! I embrace life hoping to live my purpose as a mother, daughter, sister, confidante and friend; I laugh, cry, and support; I admire, like and love; I listen, read and write. Most importantly, I have faith and thank God for all of me. My intent is to inspire others using my gifts and "Don't Forget the Half" reminds me to cast nothing aside. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.
