On the eve of my wedding, if I would have speculated how my life would look in 10 years, it would be pretty spot on.
4 kids, good jobs, a loving spouse, a cozy little home and beautiful friends to fill it with. Yes, that’s what I dreamed about.
In just three months, Michael and I will be married a whole decade already. And most of our dreams have come true.
Fresh from the chapel, and so very young.
We’ve always said, that for our 10 year anniversary, we would take a spectacular trip. Making a marriage work is hard, and I think hitting milestones like 10 years should be handsomely rewarded.
Being an interior designer and lover of architecture (and red wine), I’ve always had my heart set on going to Italy for a couple week.
It will be 10 years in 3 months. I’ll be nursing a 4 month old, so my Rome and red wine will have to wait. Postponed, but not abandoned.
A romantic trip to Italy with my husband (and baby) isn’t exactly what I had in mind. (although we did take Nola to Hawaii when she was 3 months old.)
So instead of Italy, we need other ideas. Even though life has “gotten in the way”, I still want to celebrate somehow.
I’m coming to the blog for suggestions. I’m looking at a long weekend, end of May, with Michael and baby Paul. What do you think we should do?
And no, I don’t want to crash on your basement pullout sofa.
