Stairway to Heaven

Heaven

During a girls trip to the Dominican one year, my friend Patricia had taken a very cool photo of the staircase leading down to the beach. As a memento of our trip & as a thank you for the invite to our vacation property, she wanted to gift a framed copy of it to me.
I waited in anticipation….and waited…and waited…..and then…..on a couples trip she & her husband recently joined us on…

She one-upped herself!

(the railing was added after our girls trip)

Definitely worth the wait. 🙂
My lovely friend had commissioned a local artist to paint the staircase from the original photo- which made it an even more special and thoughtful gift. She called “Stairway to Heaven”, because the beach IS Heaven….isn’t it?!

(Patricia hanging onto the painting for dear life! There’s a reason people from all over the world come to Cabarete to Kitesurf!!)

Now when I see it hanging on the wall, I will forever be reminded of what a wonderful friend I have.
