Our 2 day honeymoon

2-day-honeymoonI mentioned last week I wouldn’t reveal what I got The Guy for his birthday because we wanted to experience it together first before telling everyone! Now that our unplugged weekend is over, we can explain. I took my husband on a 2 day honeymoon this past weekend, to the romantic town of Carmel-by-the-sea.

It was every bit of relaxing, breathtaking and enjoyable all with beautiful scenic views of this wonderful little town.

We needed to disconnect from the world a little bit, so that’s exactly what we did. Many people get caught up in this comparison trap, and I for one fall for it too. I try and realize when I’m doing it, so I can snap out of it. It’s an evil thing.

Instead we must create our own memories, our own happy getaways, vacations, being alone with one another and not scrolling through twitter and instagram or reading the news during supper.us-in-Carmel

The Guy and I never had a honeymoon and I don’t consider this a true honeymoon since it lasted 2 days, but it’s as close as we’re getting to one right now. Eventually I’d love to go away with him on a longer trip. For now, this was a fantastic getaway to unwind, explore the West Coast lifestyle and simply be present. I don’t want to lose that special bond I have with my husband because I’m not present with him in the moment. We’re always connected online, and can easily fall into being disconnected with the most important people in our lives.

Later this week I’ll go more into depth about our adventures, where we stayed and where we ate; but for now enjoy a couple of pictures :)Point-Lobos










Have you been to Carmel?

Where did you go on your honeymoon? If you’re not married — where would you like to go?

  1. Nancy, I absolutely love the picture of the 2 of you perched on the rocks. All others are nice as well. Looks like you both had a nice holiday for yourselves. Looking forward to hearing more of your exploits.

  2. How fun! Glad you guys had such a good time. You’re an adorable couple.

    I didn’t get a honeymoon the first time around. It’s a long story. But next time – should I be so lucky – I’d love to go to Italy. But, I suppose a staycation at the Marriott would still be an improvement. ;)

  3. Beautiful pictures of a stunning looking place and I love the name of this town. It’s great that you enjoyed your little honeymoon together and were able to unwind and get away from it all together :)

  4. Love Carmel, it is a Bay Area staple in terms of weekend getaways! I actually got married for the first time there overlooking a cliff. Honeymoon for that time around was a Caribbean cruise. Second honeymoon with second hubby was in Tahiti and I have fond memories of that trip. Can’t wait to read more about your trip and if that pasta is from Napoli?

  5. Yes, I’ve been to Carmel and it’s one of my favorite places on the planet! If you’re going to have a two-day honeymoon, that’s the place to go. We try to go every year, and we bring our dog because it’s such a dog-friendly town. I also did not get a honeymoon (boo), but that’s because we didn’t have a real wedding, we eloped (yay!).

  6. This looks gorgeous! My husband and I actually only did a 2 day honeymoon, I’m hoping for a “real” one for our 10 year anniversary, maybe I can convince him to get a passport by then. LOL.
