~11 Year Wedding Anniversary!~

Jacksonville, Florida
March 30, 2016 3:29pm CST
My husband and I have our anniversary coming next month, we will be married 11 years on April 23rd. Since we have never had a vacation for the two of us before I am hoping if my husband keeps working and I keep babysitting that I can save the money I earn for a little weekend getaway for the two of us! I don't know if I will be able to but I would love to be able to spend the weekend just my husband and I. We would probably go somewhere in NC so I could have my family watch the kids for us. Right now it's just a dream but it would be so amazing if it happened! We have gone through so much together and a weekend away would be a dream come true for us!

I'll send vacation thoughts your way. North Carolina sounds like it would be pretty right about now.

It would be so nice to spend the time together. I had to wait until my oldest was in fifth grade before we were able to take our first vacation without kids.

@DianneN It would be really nice! I hope we will be able to because we have never had that alone time for just a few days. It will be hard to leave the kids but we need some time to get away from the stress we have had so many times.

@DWDavis Thank you, I really hope so too! I am hoping to go to the mountains, maybe Asheville? But first we have to stop in Fayetteville to see my family and to drop the kiddo's off. =)

@LovingMyBabies If you like things a little rustic, there are a couple KOAs near Asheville and they have cabins you can stay in for less than most hotel rooms cost. The cabins are nice and cozy though. My wife and I are going to vacation in Boone in June. We tent camped there with the boys many years ago. This time it will be just the two of us, with the dogs, in our travel trailer.

@DWDavis I totally forgot about the KOA's, we will definitely look into those-thank you! =) I know Asheville is expensive when it comes to hotel rooms so that might be the best way to go.

Happy anniversary to you in advanced! It's so nice to be together and still lovely for years, and with those lovely children as well. Yes, it's not easy to get away with the young children, I hope your dream will come true!

@kaka135 The only thing stopping us would be money issues, of course. So hopefully everything will go good and we will be able to. We could use the time away from bills and the stress of life. We will miss the kids like crazy though since we are used to having them with us every moment!

@LovingMyBabies Yes, I understand that. I even felt uneasy when my children left me for less than 30 minutes when they went out with the dad. It's just so unusual to me. Hope you'll still get to plan it out soon!
