To celebrate my birthday, Josh and I flew to the Dominican Republic for some sun, sand, and relaxation back in December. It was magical and warm and at one point, after our second day in a row of massages, I wondered if I was actually alive or just in a really, really, REALLY deep sleep. The trip was awesome, the quality time with my husband was awesome and at the end of our 5 days away, we were both relaxed and ready to come home.
Since my birthday is only a week before Christmas, and we had just gone on the trip, Josh and I decided to not get each other Christmas gifts and instead focus on the kids. This was a brilliant plan except when I go Christmas shopping, I invariably find something(s) that I cannot live without.
