HONEYMOON ISN'T OVER YET! Due to a crazy hurricane-level rainstorm this morning that flooded the airport runway and washed out roads, all flights leaving the island today were cancelled. Currently in a mess of rescheduling flights and scrambling for a hotel room, but the upside is more rum punch 🍹🍹🍹 // dominica

It's hard to express just how steep and slippery the hike was to find this, or how incredible it was to swim in this little grotto with not a soul for miles, or how crisp and cool the fresh water was, but it's safe to say it was the best possible introduction to Dominica 💯 // dominica + all the views on Stories

We went on our first date four years ago, and we celebrated today by heading to the courthouse and making it very official. There's no one I'd rather live with, laugh with, travel with or raise a pug with: so happy to be Mrs. Merrill 💕
