Conversation #30: Where has the time gone?

Is it just me, or is August flying by?  I seriously don’t know where the first half went.  It is funny because now that Hunky Law Student is Hunky Law Graduate (almost to be lawyer in a few months after those pesky bar results come in), I find myself much busier.  I guess I got used to “single” life there for a bit.

Well, to celebrate being done with this huge milestone, we decided to take a trip to the Dominican Republic.  I am so freaking excited!!!!  We haven’t been on trip since our honeymoon 5 years ago that wasn’t to visit family.  Technically, this trip we are going to be seeing some friends we have that live there, but since we’ll be staying here:

I’m okay with taking a trip to visit more people!  It will be so great to see our friends, and I think it will be fun to have another couple to hang out with at the resort.  Our friends got married back in March in the Dominican, and we had to miss it so we wanted to find a time to go out and visit and celebrate with them.  We will still have a couple of alone days too so I think it will be perfect.   

So I’m sort of sad to admit this, but I am crossing something off my bucket list: getting a passport and using it!  I have only been out of the country once, and it was to Tijuana, Mexico for the day.  It was an interesting experience, but you didn’t need a passport 13 years ago so it is a bit different.  Plus, the hubby has never been out of the Country either (we did both go to Hawaii together to visit his Dad which is a bit different traveling out of the contiguous 48 states, but still no passport).

Today we went to apply for our passports, and I was literally so excited I couldn’t write very legibly.  Our trip isn’t until November so I kind of hope the days keep flying by.  Weird side note, I think we were the only Americans in the passport office?  I don’t know why that struck me as odd, but really, I have no experience to base it on anyway.

Just a couple of more pictures for me to dream about until November!

What?!  I can lay on a bed on a beach and read a book all day – heaven!

August is TOTALLY flying by. Can you believe it's already the 18th?! Hooray for getting a passport! It's about time my dear, this item will become so valuable!! I don't know how many times I've used mine, not only for traveling, but for proof of identity. Keep that sucker close to you, too and don't lose it :)
