That One Time...

...when I thought I was going to the Dominican Republic but didn't actually go. That's right...no DR for me at this point! In a crazy chain of events, an issue arose with our travel arrangements and we didn't realize it until Wednesday night around 11:30pm -- and our flight was scheduled to leave at 5:20am Thursday morning.

Thankfully, we were at least able to cancel the trip and receive a refund. My entire family was a wee-bit disappointed as you can imagine -- everyone was feeling kind of sorry for themselves last night and this morning when we should have been landing in the DR -- but I'm a firm believer that things happen for a reason and we weren't meant to go on this trip. There has been a little talk of maybe rescheduling for December, but on a positive note, I do think I'll be going to NYC in August which will be fun as well. Granted, I am still wishing I had a pretty drink in hand while lounging on a beach chair, but it is most certainly not the end of the world, and I will be looking forward to it even more if we re-schedule.

I had a fun post scheduled for yesterday that included some of my favorite things in my suitcase, but unfortunately, that same bikini, tank, maxi dress-filled suitcase now has to be unpacked. No worries there, though, because now I have some great pieces I can where anytime. 

On a more positive note, congratulations to Courtney Hunt, who won the $10 credit to Gravel Road Tees! I will be contacting you shortly with more information!

  2. Oh goodness. I know y'all are beyond thankful for travel insurance and being able to get your money back. I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason. I hope you get to spend some time with your family and maybe reschedule for December. I thing the weather and the crowds will be much more pleasant in the winter :)

  9. Bummer! So sorry to hear that, but you certainly seem to have the right attitude about it! The DR would be perfect in December when it's freezing cold around here. Hope it gets rescheduled for you!

  14. That's a real bummer! Hope everything is OK though as far as the reason for the need to cancel. I went to NYC in December and would love to also see it in summer or fall. Have a great time!
