We traveled a lot when I was growing up. My dad worked out of town and we had the chance to go many places with him. It was so amazing to see history first hand. Austin didn’t grow up doing a lot of traveling, so it was quite an adjustment for him to marry me. We have traveled to a lot of places since we’ve been married, both as a couple and a family.
You Need a Romantic Getaway
Austin and I have been on a few romantic trips since we’ve been married. Our most recent adventure took us to San Francisco. That was such a great time. Before our middle child, Tripp, was born, we snuck down to the beaches of Georgia for a weekend. We’ve had other times where we have done a 1 night stay in cities not far from us.
It is so great for your marriage to go away on trips with your spouse. I’m a huge advocate of it!
