Sunshine on My Mind

Well, the sun is shining today! And it’s a whopping 7* outside!

That’s not the kind of sunshine I have on my mind!

In case you haven’t heard me mention it before, I am so.over.winter. It needs to be done, and gone. And never come back, as far as I’m concerned.

So, today, instead of complaining about the cold, I thought I would link up with Peach State of Mind and Life in the Lowcountry to write about sunshine on my mind!

Life in the Lowcountry

And NOT cold sunshine. No, I’m gonna recap the best sunshine I have ever experienced…the sunshine from my honeymoon!

THAT was the best vacation of my life. It came right after a full semester of college, on top of planning a wedding. Plus, it was just me and Theo, and we soaked up every minute of it!

Theo planned the whole honeymoon, and I did not know until we got on the plane where we were going. He told me what kinds of clothes to pack, and I knew I needed my passport, but that was IT! It took so much stress off my shoulders to know that I only had to plan the wedding (as if that isn’t hard enough!)! And so there we were…two young newlyweds headed to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic!

We stayed at an all-inclusive resort…for 10 days. It was fantastic. I’ll let these pictures tell the story. Now THIS is the type of sunshine that I have on my mind…

Ahhhh, now looking through all those pictures was a delightful break from the cold!

Now can we go back, pleeeaaasseeeee?

What about you? What was your best vacation, or where do you want to go this summer? Link up, post about the sunshine on your mind!

    I’m from Canada and I’ve never minded winter. But now that we are preparing to go to Niger, I am so over it! 😀 I’m looking forward to no winter, yet I know I will miss walking out in breathing in the crisp cold air. There’s something special about it, believe it or not! I guess it’s all about what we grow up getting used to, isn’t it? 🙂

    All our vacation time, in 8.5yrs of marriage, has been used to travel for intense seminary classes for my husband, or deputation. Except for one time where we traveled to WI for a friend’s wedding and stopped at a famous water park for a day. It was WONDERFUL and definitely a sunshine experience. 🙂

      Just curious…did you stumble upon my blog from a Niger connection, or through another way? That is fantastic that you are headed to Niger! Very ‘beachy’…but no ocean for miles haha! We decided we wanted to go big for our honeymoon, because we didn’t know when we would have another chance to have a NICE vacation! Turns out we were right…now with student loans, debt and a baby on the way, vacation to exotic destination doesn’t look too possible!
