Love Lessons: The Grand Gesture

This post is part of a series about my own personal dating experiences before I met and married Marc.  I may be a newlywed now, but just a few years ago I never thought I would be anything but single, and I hated it.  When I was struggling I didn’t feel like there was anyone who could truly understand.  I was single, I didn’t want to be single, but I also wanted to be happy […]

Initially I didn’t envision my honeymoon including Dubai.  But it turns out that one of the most common ways to get to the Maldives from New York City is through Dubai.  And if we were going to be in that part of the world, well then, we might as well take a couple extra days to see as much of it as possible.
