Welcome 2014

Well, today is a fresh start in some respects. People will be making and trying to keep all those resolutions, and in general, preparing for what lies ahead. I decided to lay out some general goals for this year. I know, I know: goals are supposed to be specific, measurable, realistic, and attainable. I think for me, though, general works better!

By the way, as I’m typing this, I’m listening to the soundtrack from the CW’s show Arrow. Ahh…new episode January 15th. Sorry, sidetracked already!! Continue reading “Welcome 2014”

Back in the U.S.

Sadly, I’ve returned to rainy and cold weather. I had spent the past four days in the sunny, warm Dominican Republic. It is the first time I left the country – got to put my new passport to use (for what it cost, I need to use it lots)!

I spent my time in Punta Cana at the Iberostar Bavaro, and I can’t say enough good things about the resort. The staff was very friendly and professional. The setting was gorgeous – the resort itself was immaculate. I wouldn’t hesitate to go back there. The food was exceptional – my only complaint was that I didn’t like their milk. The fresh fruits – delicious and juicy! I was happy that I was able to eat so healthy on vacation.

While I was there, I spent quality time at the pool and on my balcony (the view was amazing!). Given that, I did a lot of reading and some writing. Over the next couple of days I hope to post some reviews of what I read while I was there. Most of the books were on my Kindle, but I did have House Rules by Chloe Neill in paperback. I couldn’t very well go away and leave Ethan and Merit behind!

Enough for now… I have things to get ready so I can go back to the grind tomorrow. *Pouts* I will leave you with a picture of the view from my balcony. Enjoy!Iberostar_Bavaro
