Everyone should take a babymoon. (By the way, that’s babymoon, like honeymoon. Time alone with your significant other before the baby comes.My Instagram posts with #babymoon surprisingly confused a lot of people.)
Kurtis and I were getting overwhelmed with work. We haven’t had any real time off together since our honeymoon 1 year and 3 months ago! We planned to take a cruise for our 1 year anniversary and saved up all year for it. But then we found out we were pregnant and used that money as a down payment on a more reliable car instead, ha.
We had all these Southwest points saved up from our credit card and decided one day we needed to just get away together. We got permission from both of our bosses to have time off last minute, and booked a
flight less than 2 weeks away.
We didn’t have any plans and that’s how we wanted it. We didn’t want to be on a schedule, driving around trying to fit in a million things when we were only there 4 short days. We slept in every morning, hung out by the pool, drove down to the beach, ate yummy food, took long afternoon walks, and cuddled in bed eating candy and watching Jimmy Fallon every night. It was short, but it was exactly what we needed.
I highly suggest everyone take a babymoon! Not everyone has a bunch of southwest points, or can afford a trip, but just take a weekend and have a staycation with your significant other. It’s so important to make time for each other, and especially to enjoy your last time alone together before your little one
arrives. Just because you’re having a baby doesn’t mean your marriage should take a backseat!
Here are some snapshots from our weekend!
