Lessons that need to be learned!

Lessons learned about booking Babymoons | Looking to the joy | Durham Wedding Photographer I was raised around motorcycles all my life.  It is a thing in my family. Chris and I are literally the only people in my family without motorcycle licenses in my family.  I can't recall the first time I rode on one or the first time I was around them because they have always been there.


All that to say when we planned our last little trip away/babymoon for this past Thursday and Friday, I should have realized it was bike week at Myrtle Beach.  This trip was much different to our first trip there, which was winter and very little people, but all the same fun.

Things I learned this trip: Don't trust resort websites... or at least the one we booked with.  I decided to be adventurous and try a different place then last time.  I looked at a whole bunch but landed on this particular one... to say the website was misleading would be more than an understatement!  Past the initial irritation of feeling duped, mainly me cause let's face Chris just rolls with any and all punches.

To give you a taste of what I mean: We parked in the underground garage to avoid the heavy rain but it leaked so much that it didn't make a difference.  The room smelled of a cocktail of mold and musk... And we are pretty convinced that the tile floors in the bathroom and kitchenette area were literally sweating... we dried them with towels constantly but they never quit being wet.   We were greeted early our first full day by a knock on the door from the Orkin man... yes, that did happen.  

In the end, we had an amazing time.  We spent very little time in our room.  Poor Chris was stuck on the beach and in the pool pretty much all day everyday we were there!  (PS: yes I am a pool/water rat and the moment our neighborhood pool opens up I will be swimming laps there at least once a day!) And of course we hit up our favorite mini golf course: the amazing MINITOR GOFF!  (I mean I have a life time membership of free play... how could we not?)

 It was a perfect trip to sum up our silly playful lives.  We have been so worried about how this baby will change us and our life but if we keep an attitude of being grateful for all God has given us and look to the joy instead of irritation we will be more than fine!

So my advice to those of you thinking about making a trip away in the near future:

Don't believe the company website...or at least not fully
No matter what: if you are determined have a great time it really doesn't matter where you stay!
Remember at the vary worst: you are still on a mini vacation enjoying moments alone with someone you love

Live. Love. Loud.
