I'm back.

I told you I wouldn't be gone forever!

The Dominican Republic was really fun, the resort was beautiful, and we had a couple really fun excursions. One excursion off the resort took us to the "Adventure Buggies", where we we drove through some dusty trails that lead us to a gorgeous beach, and then to a cave with a freshwater pool in it. However, the dusty trails were transformed by a night of rain, and became muddy trails. The header image was taken after a day of racing around muddy tracks in the DR. Although incredibly fun, my once beautiful blue suede shoes have seen better days.


My question is: Have you ever had to say goodbye to some clothing that you absolutely love?

If you don't want to talk about this, then feel free to talk about anything else!
