I haven't been on a beach vacation in over 15 years. I wasn't sure I would remember how to relax. Thank God for sunrises, sunbathing in bed and day drinking.

I think we took a couple hundred photos while spending a week in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic but I think these 6 sum the week up perfectly.


Flight at 8:05 a.m., drinks at 8:15 a.m..



A body clock is a struggle to overcome but I managed to sleep in most mornings until 6 a.m.. Hey don't judge, I normally wake up at 3:30 a.m.. But if I slept in, I would never have seen this absolutely beautiful sunrise. And I never missed a morning.


None of us get enough sleep, so I planned to stay in bed as much as possible on this vacation. What an amazing place to put a bed. On the beach.



Morning mimosas and....


Midday margaritas


I seriously think I redefined the term 'day drinking' in Punta Cana.


This picture was proof of something that I thought was only a drunk man's theory. The women of Punta Cana are freakishly small.


The booze, the bed, the sunrise and more were great but what truly made this a life-changing vacation, was the woman in the picture below. Thank you Amy, for teaching me how to exhale and relax.
