TBT: Our Honeymoon!

This time last year, I was on the most amazing vacation. My husband and I celebrated our honeymoon in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic for ten glorious days. We were married in April but due to my schedule, as a teacher, we had to wait for the summer to take our honeymoon. I'm so glad that we did because it was really nice to have something to look forward to after the wedding. Of course, we were thrilled to be married but wedding planning is so time consuming and then it is over in one day. This way, we still had this trip to look forward to even as life began to settle all around us. 

Jeff planned the entire honeymoon and told me on the day of our wedding, in the limo after we were married, where we were going. He could not have picked a more perfect place. It was the best mix of adventure and beach bummin'. People told us not to leave the resort but we did and every time we did, we had the best time. These pictures are just a teeny tiny fraction of the pictures that we took but looking at them brings me right back. Here are some highlights from our trip...

First day @ Macao Beach

We rented dune buggies and had to spend $10 on bandanas to keep the dirt off our face.
