Welcome to the Frog Hollow Farm blog! I've been blogging since January 2010 and have switched from Blogger to Word Press, but I'm back to Blogger because, for me, it's easier to use. My husband and I live on a little farm in Northwest New Jersey. We have some chickens and a very large vegetable garden with asparagus and raspberries, and rows and rows of sunflowers, snapdragons and zinnias. Traveling, entertaining, gardening, spending time with family, studying Italian, blogging and reading keep us busy and happy. With all of this going on, moving towards a simpler life seems almost impossible but it's definitely a daily goal.

Vacation in the Dominican Republic

Early this February FHFB and I flew to the Dominican Republic with a group of friends that we always travel with in the winter - well, at least for the last 3 years!  This group owns a time share with Palace Resorts and FHFB and I have been tagging along.  This particular resort is in Punta Cana and was just purchased by the Hard Rock Cafe. 

Here are some photos to warm you all up!

 Thirteen pools, all beautifully pristine and stocked with comfortable lounge chairs and many swim up bars!

 FHFB got up early and shot a few photos of the sunrise.  Didn't he do a great job?

 Palm trees are all over the place, providing much needed shade when sitting on the beach, along with the many palapas.  Drinks and food were served all day on the beach.  Woohoo!

 I took this picture because the cocktail matched my friend's purse so well. 

Sorry, I don't know what kind of drink it is, but it looks like it would be pretty sweet.

We didn't get too many photos of the beautiful Bavaro Beach at Punta Cana. 

It's wide and flat and goes on forever.

Tomorrow I'll post some photos of the beautiful flowers growing on the grounds of the resort.

Ciao, bella!

I guess that I'm also saying peek-a-boo! 

 I can't believe it's been a month since I've posted - wait, I knew I was slacking off but I just couldn't for the life of me get myself to begin a new post.  It was like I was a little frozen, just like this little pussy willow!

But here I am - and feeling more like myself each second.

There's lots to catch up on - I am looking forward to getting back into the swing of things.

Come visit me at Metamorphosis Monday!!

Ciao, bella!
