38. One more check off the To Do list - honeymoon booked!
I am so excited to say that we finally took care of booking the honeymoon! We had been going back and forth about this for awhile, because I really wanted to go someplace with a beach, but beaches aren't Cory's favorite place (he's not fond of the heat). Also, we were debating how much money to spend (well, neither of us really wanted to spend a lot).
We talked about going to an all-inclusive like Sandals, which I would still like to do one day, but it was just out of our price range for right after the wedding. We also talked about going to San Francisco, but I was worried that being there for a week, with food, hotel, and airfare, was going to be just as pricey. We have some friends that are part of a vacation rental network, and we thought about going someplace through them for a bargain price. But a lot of the places were near the beach but not on it. So I did a little hunting around and found a great place in Destin. It's a condo on the beach called Sealoft, it has private beach access, and it has a Jacuzzi tub in it!
The weather in Destin in early April is mid 70s during the day, and mid 50s at night, so it's warm and sunny but not too hot for Cory. With the beach right there, we can go out to the water or just enjoy watching the surf from our patio! Really, I think the Jacuzzi was what sealed the deal for him. I'm just glad we can look forward to it now!
