[back to life as we know it]

We had such a wonderful vacation in the Dominican Republic, and as is usually the case with a good vacation, we're also really grateful that we've had a long weekend to recover from it :) To back up the story a little bit... my talented, hard-working, devoted, and oh-so-handsome husband just finished his masters in architecture, and we also just celebrated our 3rd anniversary. So to mark both of these occasions, we decided that we would treat ourselves to a much-needed week away in the Caribbean. The Dominican is such a beautiful country (despite what I estimate was 100% humidity. translation: out of control curly hair), and we spent the week laying by the pool and beach, eating great food, swimming with stingrays and sharks, and snorkeling in the coral reefs. It's kind of amazing how a vacation can make you feel refreshed and rested and ready to hit the ground running again.

Now it's back to the daily grind, and I also plan to be back to blogging regularly! Hope everyone has had a wonderful long weekend.
