I always thought I’d travel a bit more before starting a family. (fyi – this pregnancy was a surprise! a wonderful, beautiful, UNEXPECTED surprise!) But I’ve always had dreams of traveling Europe. A dream i’m afraid I will have to put on hold for now. Perhaps down the road on one magical anniversary we will make it happen and leave the babe with mom! (listen to me, I am already jumping years ahead. ha!) Sam and I both have jobs that make traveling pretty tough. We cherish the times we get to vacation together, and while it’s not often, it’s usually just what we need to rest our minds and “rekindle the romance”. I want to take the next 5 months, before this baby graces us with his or her presence, and take as many mini vacations (and hopefully one longer “babymoon” ) as I can. By mini vacations I even think about driving up the coast a few hours and staying at a bed and breakfast over the weekend, or booking a hotel for a night in Coronado and biking on the boardwalk. A vacation doesn’t have to mean buying a plane ticket…there are so many things we could do by just packing our bags and jumping in the car. I wish we did this more….and I have promised myself that we WILL do this more pre-baby! Because we all know how life can change with a newborn! It will be an amazing thing, but certainly a huge life CHANGE. And by the way time has been passing lately, August will be here before I know it.
….I am packing already.
