The Gallery: A Happy Memory!

The photo above was taken on Stuart and I’s first holiday together in the Dominican Republic. It was June 2005 and we had been together since the previous October. It was my first holiday away with a boyfriend and it was my first holiday in a tropical climate. I did not know how hot or humid the weather could get until I was there.

While we were there, we relaxed and got to know each other better. We went horse riding, went on a truck safari,  tried lots of fantastic new cocktails, had long walks along the beach, watched American TV and ate lots of amazing food. It was one of the best holidays we have ever had and it is one of my best memories. We will probably never be able to have a holiday like this again, especially with a little one on the way. Since this picture was taken we have grown up together and are now ready to face holidays with kids clubs, play areas, early nights and not going abroad (for a little while).  We are looking forward to it and embrace the challenge of parenthood that is just around the corner.

This is a post for The Gallery and the theme this week is A Happy Memory
