When I first decided to start a blog, I talked to a few friends about what I was going to write about. My initial point of view was going to be kittens and hair products and reality tv and crafts and booze and boys. Some suggested that I narrow my focus so I decided to focus on crafts. Well, I have discovered that blogging about crafts requires a lot more time and effort than I currently have, which means that it takes me forever to post new stuff to the site.
My adoring fan has requested that I post more often so I have decided to broaden my scope a bit. That’s not to say that I’m going to stop blogging about crafting, just that you can expect posts about other random topics too. If you don’t like it, then I suggest you send me a thoughtful haiku and I will reconsider.
The Mister and I just did one of the most fun wedding tasks there is– we booked our honeymoon. We are lucky enough to have the freedom and means to go pretty much anywhere in the world. I am weird and reckless so I could have ended up in a Turkish prison if left to my own devices. Luckily the Mister is more sensible so we put together our list of requirements for any destination.
1. It has to be somewhere that we couldn’t go for a long weekend. (Moi)
2. It has to have guided tour options. (Mister)
3. It has to be new for both of us. (Both)
4. We should not need a hepatitis vaccine. (Mister, because I am reckless.)
5. It should not remind us of any pivotal scenes from any of the Indiana Jones movies. (Again, the Mister. Buzzkill.)
We narrowed it down to Scandinavia or Argentina. Scandinavia was the first choice but we’re getting married in October and apparently everything fun in northern Europe (tours, cruises, sunlight, warmth, etc.) stops in September. We talked about Argentina but we kept coming back to Scandinavia.
This is where you pause to roll your eyes at the annoying first world blogger who waxes philosophic about the difficulties of choosing between two amazing destinations.
Long story short, we decided that we’re grown-ups and that means that we get to go on a honeymoon three months before our wedding if we feel like it.
