Yes. I’m one of those girls.
A girl who has dreamt of her wedding for a very long time. Actually, to be more accurate, I’ve dreamt of my honeymoon for a very long time. Because let’s be real; a dream vacation with a new husband sounds pretty incredible. I’m all about taking a few weeks off and celebrating being newly married in style.
I remember being younger and scouring websites for the perfect-looking cottage in places like Martha’s Vineyard, Maine or near some beautiful mountain lake. I think I still have about 25 bookmarked websites for places I thought had potential. Not kidding. But I wasn’t quite dreaming big enough, I don’t think.
Although a quiet seaside cottage really does sound delightful still, we’ve kicked things up a notch.
While I’m not ready quite yet to reveal our wedding plans (they’re still in the works, but I’m SOOO excited about when I can finally share them with you), I will reveal that we will be honeymooning in Europe.
Ireland, Italy and Paris, to be exact. For 3 weeks.
A dream come true? Yes. We are very blessed. And very excited.
So here’s my question now: for those of you married people out there, what was your favorite thing about your honeymoon and what are your most invaluable honeymoon tips?
And if you’ve been to Paris or Italy, what are your must-see places? Or the best places to stay?
Seriously. PLEASE share. All this planning stuff is a little overwhelming. Any and all feedback would be most appreciated. Thanks, all!
And because posts are always more fun with photos, here are a couple from the last time I went to Italy in 2006. It’s going to be so much more fun traveling with a husband!
Eating tiramisu in Italy. Heaven. This time I suppose I’ll have to share.
Andrea, our gondolier, let me steer for a bit. I’m not sure Reid would be okay with this now…good thing I got in my single girl traveling when I did 😉
