Next year, it will be my 10th wedding anniversary. On the way home from our honeymoon, like most newlywed couples, my husband and I decided that we’d return to the site of our honeymoon (Hawaii) in 10 years for our anniversary.
Well, now, almost 10 years later, we have kids and jobs and a mortgage and a leaky shower. Still, we tossed around the idea of leaving them with the grandparents for a few days or a week and going on vacation without them. But that was short lived. Money restraints aside, it’s because we started talking about the all-American vacation; the rite of passage; the reason we won’t be going on an adults only, lie in the sun and drink cocktails kind of vacation for a very long time.
Disney World. We’re going to Disney World.
I’m happy about it and my boys are going to be beyond thrilled, but a little part of me is mourning the nice relaxing getaway that I could really use right now. Now I have a more simple daydream of going to a nice bed and breakfast, with a fireplace in the room where I can rest, read, watch movies and enjoy yummy meals for a day or two.
