We’re back!!!

Good morning! It’s so great to be home and getting back into a normal routine…

I am happy to report that the wedding went off without any major hitches (the downpour stopped just in time for photos and our outdoor ceremony) and the honeymoon was a fantastic adventure. John and I enjoyed a blissful week of delicious island food, plenty of fruity beverages beach- and pool-side and even went on a zip line excursion up in the tropical mountains. I wish I could tell you every single detail, but it would take several posts and I always think that photos speak louder than words…So I’m going to cut myself a tiny break this morning as I get back into the swing of things at work and share some of my favorite photos from our honeymoon (in no particular order). Enjoy!


For those of you who are curious about the hotel, we stayed at the Excellence Punta Cana resort in the Dominican Republic. We L-O-V-E-D it and would definitely go back if given the opportunity. We booked through VIP and were treated like king and queen. The staff was super friendly, the room was gorgeous and the grounds were very well maintained and spread out enough so that you didn’t feel trapped. We both felt very safe on the plantation too. The only complaint we had was the noise through the door – It was a bit loud, but we had a ground floor room so we heard everyone walking by. If we could do it again, I think I’d ask for one of the upper level rooms for a little more peace and quiet. We highly recommend checking it out and have already discussed going back for our ten year anniversary…

P.S. A HUGE “Thank you!” to my fabulous guest bloggers last week, Amanda, Lisa and Jessi. Knowing they had things covered here on DG-DIY helped me to relax completely while away. If you missed their posts, check them out here, here and here.

    Yay! Congrats! I’m glad to hear everything went great – and wow, I’m jealous of the honeymoon! It looks great! How did you do on the plane ride?

      Thank you!!!! The plane ride was so much fun and early both times! I couldn’t stop giggling after experiencing my first take off =)

        I’m glad it went without a hitch! I travel fairly often by plane but I’m not a fan of long flights (although who is, honestly? Maybe if you’re traveling first class, haha)

    Wonderful photos, looked like lots of fun! What a lucky break it was that the rain stopped in time for your ceremony. Am I the only person who noticed the towel animals? I’ve actually watched a couple YouTube tutorials and am nerdy enough and have enough time on my hands that I’m dying to try some of them, lol.

      Thanks! It was =) And it was SUCH a lucky break…Don’t know what we did to deserve that! I’m glad you noticed the towel animals – They were so much fun! I’ll have to check out those YouTube videos to DIY my own…

        Well, I’m glad I’m not the only person who is excited by the prospect of spending about half an hour folding and unfolding towels to make swans and monkeys and elephants.

What do you think??
