Marrying in March during your first year of teaching isn’t super conducive to a long honeymoon. We only took 2 days off for our wedding, then jumped right back in!

The good news is, when your husband is also an officer in the U.S. Army Reserves, you just might get to live with him all summer in Virginia during his military training! 🙂 We considered Summer 2014 our one huge honeymoon, and planned a bunch of awesome weekend trips! It was a summer we’ll never forget. I’m glad we did it this way. 🙂


Follow along with us (these trips are in order), or, if you happen to be traveling to one of these places yourself, click on a specific post for a fun preview and resource!
