E X P O S E D - Northern Belle edition

Hey peeps. I'm Lisette from Northern Belle Diaries and I am taking over Jess' blog for the day. 

Jess is in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic for the week. When she asked me to guest post, I thought, "duh!" When she asked me to EXPOSE myself...I was a little nervous. You never know with Jess :)
Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic
I hope she is on a beach nicer than this, getting the locals to chop down coconuts for her.

Fresh coconut water + rum is something EVERYONE needs to experience at least once! Swim up bar, too!
My family actually is from the Dominican Republic. And while Jess is probably enjoying her coconuts on the beach right now, (literally) I am here to share with you some of MY pictures from trips from ages none other but the Dominican Republic.

In 2008 my husband (then boyfriend) and I, along with my parents, traveled to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic to enjoy some beach time. It is a FAR cry from the roads you take to go to where my parents grew up:
Mountains of Santiago, Dominican Republic.

Puerto Plata is much much nicer (not as nice as Punta Cana) but it is littered with tons of beach resorts. Here we are one of the first nights there. Man, we look like babies.

Circa August 2008
This was actually the magical night we got engaged. YES! Engaged! We took a moonlit stroll on the beach while my parents enjoyed the outdoor concert. I'll never forget it. I can still remember seeing the little shell crabs running sideways into the shadows. And....the couple having sex on the beach. Yeah. That happened. Jess, you and Josh should be THAT couple enjoying the beach! ;)

I can still here the tamboras (drums) and guirras of Dominican Republic. I wanna go back! Visit Northern Belle Diaries and say hi sometime. You can also catch me on Twitter and Instagram!

Now it's time to EXPOSE yourself! Rather, expose anyone guest posting on YOUR blog! Grab the button, place it in your guest's post, and link up here. Capish?

  1. I loved the Dominican. It has been a while since I was last there but it left a lasting memory.


Thank you so much for taking your time to leave a sweet comment. They make my day :)
