It is no secret that we are all growing so weary of COVID-19, on top of that list being myself (ha!), and the current holding pattern our lives seem to be locked in. Keeping away from friends and family, masks as our newest accessories, and no traveling.
But for us, we’ve decided to start easing our way back to “living” and stop letting COVID control everything we do. So, we put together a little bust out of quarantine bucket list and will start marking off that list stat!
Though with some restrictions, some things might not be possible, we are still holding out hope to cross them off the list soon.
Our big ticket bust out of quarantine items include:
Movie Date | Oh how we are itching for dinner and a movie, just the two of us. Being stuck at home, with minimal outings, we are more than due for a little uninterrupted alone time. Being that catching a movie hasn’t been an option, we cannot wait to mark this one off our list. Currently, theaters here are closed, but we’ll make it happen as soon as possible!
Family Gathering | This weekend we are getting a start on our list! We are headed to the Texas Coast with family to hangout by the beach. We decided to not let this virus stop us from being together on our yearly vacation. I ain’t mad about it!
Mexico Trip | A few months back, right in the thick of quarantine, I couldn’t take it any longer, so I wrangled up a friend to join me on an all-inclusive Mexico vacation! In late September, we be up in the skies headed to the beautiful beaches of Playa Mujeres, Mexico. Cannot wait!
Family Road Trip | The next few weeks are super busy for us with our beach trip this weekend, then next weekend we hit the open road to head north for an epic National Park adventure! With flying not an option earlier on in the quarantine, we started toying with the idea of doing a family road trip to get away and unwind. Thus, our epic family road trip adventure plan was born! We’ll hit up 3 national parks—Rocky Mountain, Grand Teton, and Yellowstone. We are masked up, stocked up on hand sanitizer, and crossing our fingers that all goes as planned!
Couples Getaway | The last big-ticket item on our list is a trip away, just my husband and I. Piggy backing on a great deal and the need for me to get back in the skies to relay back the experience to my clients, we jumped at the opportunity to visit Las Vegas once again. We’ll make our first drive to the airport in over 6 months in early September, and we cannot wait!
Are you keeping a bust out of quarantine bucket list? Let’s hear what you can’t wait to do when you’re ready to start getting out again!
Why Honeymoon Year After Year
A Yearly Getaway Can Strengthen Your Marriage
I’m constantly telling my friends that this is what they need in their lives, especially those with little ones! It is hard for me to put into words just how much traveling together has strengthened our relationship, and I genuinely want that for everyone.
For us it isn’t about escaping home life, it is about improving it, cherishing it even more, and putting each other first. To help give you a bit of understanding on why we put a romantic getaway at the top of our to do list each year, I’ve put together the top reasons we honeymoon every year and why you should too!
Five Reasons Why Couples Should Honeymoon Every Year
Destress & Relax | Let’s just get this out of the way and admit it—life is hard, y’all! Even if you love your job, work is stressful, our kids get the best of us while we get what is leftover of each other, and sometimes it is hard to shut out the noise of the world. Getting away together gives us a chance to destress and relax together. It gives us an opportunity to lay out our stressors on the table and leave them behind. We can shut out the world and just be.
Focus on Us | A vacation, just the two of us, allows us to focus on each other. As I mentioned, and like many other couples, we get what is left of each other at the end of the day. Meaning jobs, kids, house, etc. get the best of us, and we are left with each other’s sloppy seconds. Making a yearly honeymoon a priority, gives us the chance to focus on us and only us.
Team Building | This might sound silly, but this time gives us the opportunity to team build, because at the end of the day the two of us are a team. We talk about the day to day, brainstorm about the future, and head home feeling more and more in sync with our goals as individuals, as a couple, and as a family.
Sex is Better on Vacation | I said it! Sex is good at home, but damn it is HOT on vacation! #sorrygrandma Away from the stressors of everyday life, you can do it whenever, however, wherever you want! I PROMISE you’ll go home feeling way more connected than ever before!
You Deserve It | The two of you manage jobs, a home, maybe kids, bills, and all the joys of everyday life, and that deserves some recognition. Give yourself and your marriage the gift of travel, because you absolutely deserve it with how hard you work every single day. You and your marriage will thank me for it!
I cannot reiterate this enough, it is such a game changer for a relationship to make travel apart of it, and even more so to make it a yearly must. If you’re ready to start making an annual honeymoon a priority in your life, let’s chat!
