We're back from our honeymoon! We may be a little burnt and a few pounds heavier but we had a great time. We stayed at Divi Aruba Phoenix Beach and really enjoyed the resort. The pool and beach were fantastic as was the food. We were also in walking distance of a ton of other resorts and restaurants so the location was perfect.

Some of our favorite spots:

We didn't have any activities planned except for a sunset boat cruise which my cousin and her husband booked for us as a gift. We also had drinks with a former co-worker of mine who happened to be in Aruba staying nearby. Otherwise, we lounged on the beach and in the pool and drank a ton of Balashi beer and daiquiris.

We only stayed five days which may not seem long enough for some people but for us it was perfect. We both start to get a little antsy to get home if we vacation for too long. There's only so much lounging one can do. It was the perfect amount of time for us.


  1. Sounds like the perfect honeymoon to me. Yes I think "lounging" holidays are great for a limited amount of time. The beach looks beautiful.

    1. It was. I'm so used to freezing New England water. It was perfect.

  2. Looks wonderful! As do you both. You've reminded me that we've never had a "real" honeymoon. Maybe we should get to it.
