About Bubbly Bride
This might be one of those posts that you read and put aside for after the wedding planning
. After the wedding you jet set off to an isolated romantic island where you have earned yourself a week of relaxation together. You spend a year on details and plans and surrounded by friends and family members and finally are able to spend time on each other.
I have great memories from my honeymoon
in St. Maarten - a private villa with a beautiful pool, delicious food and my new husband. We spent the week reminiscing, celebrating, laughing... and sleeping. We were exhausted! We were finally experiencing peace and quiet and privacy, which we had not had in the past year. My honeymoon was exactly what I needed at that point in my life...but my "2nd honeymoon" vacation a year later is in close competition. We jumped on a short cruise for a long weekend. We had spent a year getting to know each other and had settled into the comfort of marriage and we were so lucky to be able to go away together and keep the romance alive.
2nd Honeymoons...and third and fourth's are so important because they are set aside time for you and your husband to spend focusing on each other and why you fell in love in the first place. You might be tempted to simply call it a yearly vacation
with your husband - Personally I love the phrase 'going on a Honeymoon
' and go on one every year for the mere fact that it puts you back to an exciting time. Vacation reminds me of a time of relaxation, honeymoon tells me the trip will be full of passion and love and newness.
Also, as you accumulate kids along the years, taking your kids on a vacation to Disney world does not fall into the category of a 'honeymoon'. I think it is so important to go on family vacations together with your kids but I also think it is equally important to save money
and plan a getaway (or honeymoon) for just the two of you! I realize some years might be rough finacially and you have to save money somewhere- but when you have the time and have saved the money don't let this tradition go!
I urge you to save this post and take this idea to heart. In no way am I discounting the romance and excitement you will experience on your honeymoon. You will make fabulous memories spending your first week together as a newly married couple! The main point I want to get across is the importance of keeping the romance alive. Remembering the commitment you made to each other and laughing at the past year of up and downs.
I am planning my third honeymoon this year where we will spend 10 days in Hawaii! If you are already married - where will you spend your honeymoon this year?!
