Dave and I talk about going places quite often.
Recent conversations have included:
New York (after my trip and the need to share its awesomeness with Dave!)
Chicago (to see his mission stomping ground and check out the windy city)
San Francisco (because I've never been and have always wanted to go)
A cruise. To anywhere. Because we love cruising that much.
And recently, Washington D.C.
I always get a little excited, so I search the airline websites and check fares, look up hotels (checking for the cheapest places to try to persuade Dave we should go). I even look at the calendar to try to find what works with our schedules and non-conflicting dates.
But it all ends there. We never book flights. We don't commit to anything.
Don't get me wrong, we travel. Some may say more than the normal, given our Europe, New York, and Alaska destinations over the last year. BUT, those were family trips. Fantastic vacations, but different than taking off just the two of us.
I would like to commit! I want to get away. Just us. Of course we will probably spend time with friends, maybe even see some family. So I'm going to use my blog like people use a "vision board"? Maybe it will become reality!
