Where have I been and what have I been doing?
A very good friend had a birthday that needed to be celebrated and it just so happens that his family planned his bash with an all inclusive presidential suite in the gorgeous Dominican Republic.
Could we please join them? But of course.
The resort was absolutely beautiful and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect.
Of course it was kind of romantic too…
The place had a very rigid caste system according to what bracelet color they snapped on your wrist. We started off with blue which was still very incredible and meant we had access to almost everywhere and then two days in (thanks to the parents) we were upgraded to GOLD.
That gold bracelet moved us into a private villa mansion with our own backyard and pool. It also provided us with private chefs to come and cook meals throughout the day. Needless to say, a girl could get used to that!
As a fun birthday outing we all got up early and went horseback riding in the mountains! By far my favorite part of the trip.
His sister brought a bottle of Fox Creek Vixen sparkling Shiraz all the way from Australia for the big day. I want MORE. I actually tried to order a few bottles to send to his parents as a thank you but unfortunately their international shipping is $400. I’ll figure it out somehow!
I can’t say enough wonderful things about our short trip to La Dominica Republica.
I look forward to sharing the article I wrote about this vacation in LAFamily’s online magazine soon!
