So, at 5 months pregnant, I think it’s sinking in that our lives are about to change. It’s terrifying and amazing all at once. I’m already making peace with saying goodbye to lazy Saturdays with breakfast in bed and the occasional brunch with mimosa’s, because I have a feeling I won’t be experiencing those for quite a while. That’s being said, I’m OK with this and getting used to the idea that things will never be the same – but they will be so much better.
Dave and I love to travel, but I don’t think that will happen in the next year or so, because we just bought a house (bye bye vacation money), and again, WE’RE HAVING A BABY. I know people love to take “babymoons”, and I’m sure we will make a day trip somewhere before the baby is born, or have a really nice dinner before we say goodbye to candlelight and elegance for a while. . . but honestly, I’m looking further into the future – to our next trip. I’m thinking about our next trip WITH the baby!
We are so excited to have a new member of the Ficken clan and we cannot wait to bring he or she (that’s right we’re NOT finding out the gender) with us on our next adventure. My husband LOVES the beach. Loves it. I mean, I like the beach just fine, but I also love traveling to different cities and exploring different cultures and regions of our country and others. However, I think I may have found the perfect compromise for our next big vacation. A yacht charter to the British Virgin Islands!
Now, I know it sounds expensive, but the cost isn’t too bad (especially if we invite some of our closest friends), and I know if we save up it will be the trip of a lifetime.
We love the Caribbean and the BVI, so I was thinking either of those locations would be beautiful, and it’s a short hop from Nashville and flights are reasonable. I mean, I even took a quiz 🙂 Looks like a motor yacht through Addison Yacht Charters would be the way to go! So, here’s to saving and our next adventure for 3 in 2016!
