Honeymoon Booked!

It's official friends, we've booked our honeymoon!! 

In September, Aaron and I will be traveling to....


You guys have no idea what a "WIN" this is.  For starters, we argued for a good 2-3 months about where we wanted to go.

Aaron wanted rugged/hiking/backpacking/hosteling/adventure
I wanted relaxing/foreign/fun/culture

We went back and forth, and every conversation ended in me saying, "I'm not going on a honeymoon!!"

Compromise, people, compromise.

I've wanted to go to Greece for as long as I remember.  Greece, and building-an-orphanage-in-Africa, have really been my biggest passions.  My Grammy went to Greece when I was younger, and when she came back she couldn't stop talking about how beautiful it was and what a great time she had.

Well if my Grammy loved it then so will I.  So I decided then that I, too, would go to (and love) Greece.  In fact, I still wear a ring on my right hand that my Granny (not to be confused with "Grammy") purchased while she was in Greece.

Long story short - I'm obsessed with Greece.

So I was ECSTATIC when Aaron found an amazing deal for us to travel to my dream location.  We were able to pay for the entire trip so we dove all in and bought the vacation package!

We'll be spending 3 days in Mykonos, 3 days in Santorini, and 2 days in Athens.

ECSTATIC doesn't even begin to describe how I'm feeling about our trip!!

This will be the first trip Aaron and I have taken that doesn't involve camping, car-camping, trail mix, no-showers, sleeping bags, etc.


Have any of you been to Greece?  Any recommendations or suggestions?!  I'm all ears.

Love Always Nancy J

  5. Congrats, that's it so SO exciting! I've heard amazing things about Greece! :)

  6. Greece is amazing! You are going to have so much fun! I went 2 summers ago, and I'm dying to go back. Santorini and Mykonos are gorgeous with so much culture, and Athens is a lot of fun. Just keep in mind, that Athens is a city and doesn't really look like picturesque Greece. But overall, it's still a really fun city with good food and plenty of things to do and see!

  7. FunFunFun! I've never been but I can't wait to see your photos!

  8. That sounds FANTASTIC! It's a place I'd like to go too.
    How are the rest of your wedding plans coming along?
    I hope you're well!
