It was a conversation that would change the future. One of my dearest friends asked me if I would want to take a trip somewhere warm with her. I didn't miss a beat, absolutely I did! I didn't even care where, I trusted her fully. She messaged me the next day and told me where we were going. She found a place called Breathless resort and spa in the Dominican and this place looked divine. The beach was everything I wanted. To top it all off every room had a tub on the porch. Baths are amazing, and a bath on a porch with the sound of the waves and the wind through the palm trees was a dream come true. It was March and I was turning 26. To me it was do something now or regret it. Life is short and here I was a quarter century into my life and I had never had an adventure like this. I had never used my passport. It was time. We set off on our journey and after a few minor setbacks we arrived.

This weekend was a magical one. We went to our favorite coffee shop, had brunch at Scramble and explored the farmers market. I managed not to bring home a plant but it was tough! There was a beautiful succulent garden in a giant clay teacup that I was swooning over. We went by the nursery and picked up some organic fertilizer for our vegetable garden and I got to work nourishing them right away. While out and about we stumbled on some awesome window decals that are yet another reason I am falling in love with Roanoke. A unicorn AND a stag ?!?! Pretty much my two favorite animals ever. My spirit animal is either a deer or a unicorn, maybe a unicorn deer. I'm pretty sure that's it.
