This past weekend + part of this week, I was in the Dominican Republic with three girlfriends to celebrate birthdays and to just… vacay. “Birthdays” were moreso the excuse to gtf away of responsibilities for a hot sec and tan our bums. It was my second time there, and this time was very different than my first time. We were light on drinking and heavy on relaxing. The 4.5 day getaway was exactly what we all needed.
