Honeymoon Finally!

I’m sure you know, but Derek and I have YET to go on a honeymoon.  Yes, we got married almost 2 1/2 years ago….but I started graduate school the weekend after we got married.  Oh and we had to move in between those 7 days as well.  Whew…..but good news ladies….we have something planned!


Next year, we are going to Italy!!!!!!  We have been planning this for so very long.  I was fortunate to study abroad in Italy, so I’m soooooo excited to go back!  However, this will be our first out-of-the-country experience together so it will definitely be fun!

I would love to hear of any suggestions or “go-to” places or just any good travel planning websites.  We will be traveling for 12 days and probably plan to stay northern.  So PLEASE suggest away!

I thought I would reminisce a bit with some Venice pictures from the first time I was there!

That's awesome! I've been once when I was a teen and did not appreciate it to it's fullest. I was too worried about all the cute boys and could care less about the beauty and culture. I'm so excited for you guys to go! It will be so romantic!

You guys are going to have a blast, and you deserve it after waiting 2 1/2 years for a honeymoon

New follower here found you through Faith's blog, Life, Love&Marriage! Congrats on your award nomination. Hubs and I will be returning to Italy in 2 weeks....eeeek, I can't wait. I wish I could make suggestions but we'll be in the south (roma, florence) then head up to Milan to visit friends. Hope you have a wonderful honeymoon. Perhaps when I return I can suggest a few places in Milan.
