Weekend Getaway: The Dominican Republic.

[No Filter.]

Last weekend I spent my days down in the DR in the tropical sunshine, warm weather, basking in the island breeze. These days, the DR has become my favorite weekend getaway. (1) the weather is always great, and it is a perfect escape from the currently cold Atlanta weather (2) it is a hop, skip, and a jump across the ocean, and you can be there in under 4 hours [fact: it takes me longer to fly home to Arizona than the Dominican!] (3) I get to eat endless amounts of tuna and steak [85% of ¬†their beef is produced on the island and it is bomb.com] and drink endless amounts of ros√© (4) I can get a tan in the middle of winter (5) you’re on island time and anything goes; including flowy dresses and air dried wavy hair (6) last, but most certainly not least, it is where my main squeeze currently lives, so it gives me an opportunity to see him.

Out of Office.

I am in my hometown of Phoenix for a few days to celebrate my mom’s birthday (Happy Birthday, Carla!). I had a weather shock when I got off the plane in my boots and sweater, it being “only” 87 and all… But, while unpacking my suitcase, I came across some old gems. Good news, my style and hair and has improved since then.
