Friday Roundup: A Seriously Good Belly Laugh & Beautiful Beach Pics

Daily life in the Dominican Republic is hardly as easy as daily life in New Jersey. It doesn’t have all of the “luxuries” and more dangers (aka driving) but it does have its benefits. Take, for example, this weekend. This weekend we’re going here: This is Bayahibe, a fishing town 10 miles east of La Romana. We are staying at an AirBnb in Cadaqués. Inspired and named after a town in Northern Spain, it is “the unique combination of daily...

At the Romeo Santos Concert in Punta Cana: My Proudest Dominican Moment

Alllllllllll the feels. Standing on the lawn of the vast space that is the Hard Rock Punta Cana Resort’s concert venue, drinking a Presidente, and swaying to DR’s *King of Bachata, Romeo, gave me all the feels. It was not lost on me that I was at the Romeo Santos concert in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. There was a feeling among the audience that would be impossible to create anywhere else in the world. A certain sense of ownership floated about for this...

One Key For a Happy Marriage: Nothing Gets Old

On every visit home to New Jersey, Husband and I try to get into NYC at least a couple of times. Sometimes we take the train in, sometimes we drive in. Sometimes we take the kids, sometimes we go alone. We’ve explored and been to the city in so many ways we could write a Dr. Seuss book: I like New York on foot. I like New York by train. I like New York in sun, or snow, or rain. I...

Spring Street Cocktail Cruise

Truth be told, I planned our whole 3 generation family vacation around visiting Charleston. Scheduling my parents’ time share at Myrtle Beach this year instead of Orlando was to get me closer to the historic city that I’ve wanted to check out for over a decade. We were expecting lots of charm and grandiose southern homes. We were expecting a big history lesson as Charleston’s history is long and diverse, being the biggest player in the South from the colonial era to...

If you have spoken to me anytime in the last few months, I have most likely howled something about #vanlife at least once in a conversation. I’m obsessed and crushing hard like a school girl. I even have my dream van picked out and have begun the visualization* process. I’ve also been following these van life accounts on Instagram which have me drooling with possibility and planning for our van future. I’m aware that van life isn’t as Instragrammable as it looks....
