After The Maldives earlier this year, we ended our vacation in the beautiful city of Dubai. Never in my life would I have imagined that I'd have the opportunity to visit the vast and beautiful Arabian Desert. Michael and I were driven up and down the winding sand dunes.. it felt like a never-ending roller coaster. Luckily, we are thrill-seekers, so it didn't make us nauseous.  During the drive, we took a pit-stop to get out of the car and watch the sun set which looked like a scene plucked right out of a movie. I ran around and played in the softest sand my hands and feet have ever touched as the sun disappeared only to welcome the bright stars. This Lovers + Friends dress was perfect for the occasion.

Next, we were taken to meet with a large group at a dreamy camp bursting with delicious food, drinks, music, live belly dancing, hookah and henna tattoos. (..best believe I partook in all of it!) I even got to ride a camel... what a dream come true! Michael followed that with some sandboarding, which apparently is more difficult than snowboarding. One of my favorite moments of the evening was when they turned off all the lights and music so everyone could take a moment to stargaze. It was such an incredible moment to share with people from all over the world. I'm thankful to God for these memories that I'll keep with me forever. The world is a beautiful place.
