back from Now Larimar (Punta Cana)

Back from Punta Cana and as usual, we had a great time. This is our 6th time in Punta Cana so it feels like going home instead of being on vacation. This is also our second time at this resort, Now Larimar. When we went back in 2009 for Christmas, it was called NH Real Arena. Everything is basically the same, except it got re-branded. The food, I must say, is much better. I am going to save the review for our travel blog but I will be sure to link it up to my blog. For now, I will leave you with some photos.

Now remember I said that Mike and I were going to do a little something special, well, we celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary on Tuesday while we were in Punta Cana. Instead of renewing our vows, we trashed our wedding outfits. The resort photographer did an awesome job! Here's the little slideshow Mike put together. Enjoy!
