our honeymoon was super fun, but...

is it wrong to wish that we had some of our friends there with us?

i mean, really. is that weird?

i think the main thing is that boyfriend and i do not lack alone, quality time together. we get plenty. every other weekend we don't have blake. so it's not like we have this longing to spend time alone with no one else around. we're definitely more the "WHERE ARE OUR FRIENDS?!?!?!" type of couple. so while the honeymoon was gorgeous, and amazing- we found ourselves wishing almost daily that we had some friends traveling with us. while it was so incredibly fun- we know that it would have been thirty times more fun with our friends. know what i mean?

thank the goddess that we met awesome couples there!! we really did too. we met some great locals that we spent TONS of time with- and we met some awesome couples on their honeymoons as well who were super fun and totally "our kind of people." :)

Looks FABULOUS! And I know what you mean about wanting your friends there. My husband and I often travel with groups of friends and about half way through our last 'just us' vaca, we were missing everyone! :-) I LOVE the sunset photo.

Love the pictures! I love your black and red dress---very tropical. :) You know, I would have been happy to join you guys---all you had to do was send for me. :) Glad you're back!!!

Welcome back!!

Looks like you had a blast! I think it's fun meeting people. I'd probably get so bored of Mike that I'd be begging for friends! LOL

Nah, I don't think it's weird. I think I'd be the same way after a day or too. Glad you had fun.

Looks GORGEOUS! And I know what you mean about wanting friends there. We used to take 2 couple vacations all the time, before kids, and I miss it!

Fun photos! It reminds me so much of our last trip to St. Johns. Sigh. Now I'm going to go pout!

First, I almost want to kick your photogenic ass for being so damn cute. GREAT PICS as usual!!!

It has been 14 years and you brought back memories with the photos and missing family and friends. We felt the same way. We had alone time back then (okay, I miss that) and we would have loved to have friends along on the honeymoon -- as long as we still had private time (bomp chicka bomp bomp).

I'm so very happy for you...... Next time take us with you! Hubby and I are lots of fun and love to travel.... Just sayin'.....

RWA said...

Good grief! I would say you met some folks there, huh?

I wasn't able to take an actual honeymoon because I was in grad school when I got married, and I'm still in grad school for that matter!
But I do understand your take on all of this. My husband and I went on cruise together and it was kinda boring without our friends there! There were so many old people, and I mean like over 60 yrs old or so many young teeny boppers on spring break. It kinda sucked! Of course I loved being with my husband and all, but after so many days, we were looking around for people to hang out with! So no, it's not wierd that you felt that way. I would call that normal!

Beautiful pics! Glad you had fun and I agree about travelling with friends -- we did that last time we went to the Caribbean and it was a blast!

Welcome home!!

Funny enough Mike and I thought the same thing on our honeymoon. We had a ball, but thought how much MORE fund we would have had if we brought like 2 other couples with us. We kinda thought it was wrong at the time too, but *shrug* true. We liked our time alone, but would have liked having people there for the fun parts too.
