My husband Josh doesn’t read my blog. He just doesn’t. (Yes, this has been the topic of some “conversations” in our household). So, I feel pretty safe about brazenly posting this piece about planning a secret trip for him, because he’s not gonna see it (what a great silver lining to this situation, don’t you think?)
Here’s the deal:
We’ve never done this before.
If you are a regular reader, you may recall that Josh and I have never taken a vacation without our kids. I know, I know…
As each year passes, I feel more and more embarrassed to admit this, especially since I write a blog about travel.
And our kids will be ten and twelve this year. I KNOW, I KNOW…
2015 is the dawn of a new era.
After a little bit of friendly public shaming, a lot of kind support, and a few genuine offers of kid-watching, I’m going for it this year. I’m going to surprise Josh with a trip to New Orleans!
It’s not going to be a super long trip – just three nights – but I have to take baby steps, people. I chose New Orleans because it is my favorite city ever, and I’m already looking forward to the trip, even though it’s in August. (Yes, I know about August in New Orleans. I like it that way.)
God only knows what will happen.
Wish me luck.
Place your bets.
Do you think Josh will see this post?
I’d love to hear what you think about all of this.
