Travel Diary: Arrival at the Resort

We arrived at our hotel in the afternoon and the first thing we saw when we entered the lobby was this
enormous rustic chandelier, they have several in the lobby area, then the water feature in the center 
of the lobby surrounded by beautiful furnishings from the island.  After check in, we walked by 
the court yard and caught a glimpse of the architecture and cafe style iron tables and chairs.  
Did I mention there are flamingos, peacocks & turtles?  We were all loving it!

Back from Vacation!

If you aren't content to just sit by the pool at the Iberostar Costa Dorada, there are activities all around the resort, from archery to merengue lessons. (From: Photos: Best Beachfront All-Inclusive Resorts that Fit Your Budget).

These glass magnets are available at the Inspirations by D Shop.

I missed you guys!  You have probably noticed a two week respite on this blog
and perhaps other social media pages.  That is because I was spending time with
my family, I was researching ideas for my Etsy shop, soaking in the the beautiful Caribbean
sun,  and I participated in a destination wedding; my sister got married!
It was a beautiful, fun and inspiring wedding.  I am so happy for my little sister
and wish her & my new brother in law much happiness.
The photos above are a snip of the two weeks, this is the resort we stayed in
for the wedding and it was gorgeous, we loved it so much we extended our stay there.
 I have so many more and it is so hard to choose the ones to share with you, but no
worries I will get to those soon.
For now enjoy your weekend and Monday morning!
