Marriage || Just The Two Of Us

10.10.2014


Today Jon and I leave for our babymoon at the beach. I'm extremely excited for a small vacation and a little time away with my hunny.
 
I'm trying to be extremely intentional about realizing these are the last few months we have as "us". Although we are both so excited to have a new addition to the family, it's going to be a total life change for us. For the last 2+ years we've been able to do as we please without a schedule. Dinners out, late night movies, spur of the moment trips, etc. I know we will still be able to enjoy moments like that, but we will have someone else to think about and plan around.
 
I'm just trying to reflect on our solo memories and soak up the last few months alone together before we embark on the best new journey, ever!
Side Story - Jon emailed the lady we were renting a house from a the beach and asked what time we could check in. She emails back and says, "Anytime, my cousin lives there. He can let you in whenever you arrive." Ummmm, what? Please tell me Jon and I aren't crazy for jumping all over this lady and demanding a full refund considering she never mentioned we were going to be staying in a house with a COMPLETE STRANGER! That crap should seriously be in the fine print or something.

So we are on our way to Charleston, with no clue as to where we will lay our heads tonight. It's an adventure :)

Oh and the winner of the beautiful handmade scarf giveaway from The Provision Shop is....

That's Mrs. Burns To You

  5. Maybe she meant in the same condo/plex? I hope you don't have to share a space with a stranger!

  8. Enjoy the vacation! And yes, you should definitely know ahead of time whether you'll have the place to yourself or not. We stay with strangers all the time because we're cheap and rent rooms from Airbnb--but we know in advance and plan for that.

  10. Oh my gosh..that would make me so nervous. I hope yall have a wonderful vacation! Before we had our first baby we were trying to do as much as could together because we knew things would change. I am so grateful for that time we had before babies!

  11. I hope you two had a blast on your babymoon!
    And no, you aren't crazy for asking for a refund. I would have most certainly done the same thing!! How creepy!

  13. Just came across your blog- such a cute site! Congrats on expecting!! My husband and I have a 5 month old daughter, and just celebrated our 5 year anniversary last weekend. You are so right about the changes coming your way and that you just can't do things the same way anymore! It is so sweet and wonderful though and you won't really even mind though : )
