We kind of pushed it until the last minute here, but we still made sure our 12 Months of Dates for August happened in August! This month the date was actually free, minus the refreshments, and still a lot of fun.
The pre-planned activity was to go to Barnes and Noble, spend some time in the travel section, plan a dream vacation, and then share with each other what we found.I think the timing of this date couldn't have been better. When I planned this date for the 12 Months of Dates Christmas present back in November I had no idea that it work out so perfectly! I thought I would likely still be a teacher, and even though it's hot and we're ready to leave the state that never works out due to the first weeks of school and inability to miss. I thought some allusive dream trip would be all kinds of whimsical fun for our "one day" file. I had no idea this would coincide with the literal day that I paid off my very last student loan, which made talk of some of our dream vacations abroad something that could happen sooner than later- definitely making our date a little more exciting!
And guess what, we both headed for Europe!
honeymoon cruise and anniversary cruises to Central America. We are both itching to see other parts of the world. We were thrilled that our thoughts were in the same region!
Ellie and Carl in Disney's UP and start our own adventure jar. Maybe we'll have to break it often like they do, but that's not going to stop us from planning and saving. We enjoyed our date and we're pretty settled on Europe for our adventure!
If anyone has any recommendations of where to go, what to do, what to eat, or any other travel suggestions we will gladly take it!
