John met us today, thanked us for all of our work, and said "today is all about you relaxing and enjoying the beauty of the Dominican."
It was exactly what I needed to hear after a terrible start to the morning. Most days, I'm getting only 6 hours of sleep, and am totally fine with that; staying up late sharing life stories with Jamie, waking up early to fit in some yoga on my beach facing balcony.
