Travel in 2021 was like a box of chocolates. You never knew what you were going to get. However, we were all excited to just be able to travel again, even if there were limitations and restrictions. We had to research whether we needed a COVID-19 test to enter certain countries, whether we needed a COVID-19 test to re-enter the USA, and what documents or insurance were required to enter the various countries. Even with all of the additional requirements, we traveled to Akumal, Cancun, NYC, Los Cabos, St. Martin, Myrtle Beach, Pompano Beach, Atlanta, and Punta Cana.

We realized more than ever that life is short and we need to live each day to the fullest. So many good people are no longer with us and our condolences are with their families!

Friends - God is good! We thank the Lord for His mercy and His grace. His word is true!! God has shown that He has a plan for our lives, a wonderful future and a hope. He has opened up the windows of heaven and has poured out blessings that we do not have room enough to hold. In 2019, Carl and I definitely lived, loved, and traveled. As far as living, we had ups and one major down. We lost the matriarch of our family after 87 years of her beautiful spirit gracing this planet.

As far as loving, we grew more in love with each other and grew even closer, although both of our hearts ache for our loved one that we loved so much and lost. We a
Friends - The media is a blessing but can also be a curse. If you listen to the media, you will never travel. We are in the DR right now. Currently, there is all kinds of press about the DR being dangerous and not to come here. We have been perfectly safe and have had an amazingly relaxing time. The most disturbing thing has been the seaweed on the beach which has actually not been too bad. We should have stayed on the Caribbean Sea side of the island and will when we come back. We are at the Secrets Royal Beach, having a blast. The resort is nice. The service is good. The food is good. As platinum Unlimited Vacation Club members, we are guaranteed preferred rooms, access to all preferred club areas, and free hydrotherapy treatments at the spa. We are having a great time! Do not believe the hype! Be smart but travel and live your life. We are doing just that and we thank God for keeping us!! Live, Love, and Travel!!
