Well, folks, I think I might as well just come right out and say it: Mr. A and I almost weren’t going to have a honeymoon of any kind after the wedding.
And to be honest, I was pretty OK with it. I mean, we’re both fresh out of college and trying to save up for a house in the next year, not to mention we’re both fairly new to the jobs we currently have and haven’t accrued much vacation time. I told Mr. A I’d be totally OK with just taking a fun trip on our first anniversary, especially after he told me he would most likely be called in for overtime the week after the wedding and there would be no way he could get out of it without using up most of his vacation time.
But then, as the weeks went by and we were both becoming increasingly more stressed about the wedding, there was nothing that sounded better than escaping for a few days after the reception to have some MUCH NEEDED R&R. So, what solution did we come up with? We’re mini-mooning for three days in the Lone Star State! Mr. A is using up about half of his vacation hours, and my boss has graciously given me a few days off after the wedding to go enjoy some time with my newly minted husband. I’m so excited! But where are we headed, you ask?
