There Are Babies Everywhere!

What is happening people, is it in the water? Seems like every time I turn around someone is pregnant. Even people that just got married the other day (or so it seems like). I don't understand the rush....are you really looking forward to the lack of sleep, the fact that you'll never even go to the bathroom by yourself anymore, forget going shopping or a quick trip to Walmart to get some toilet tissue!

Forgive me if I'm being crass, I don't mean to offend, I just don't understand. I guess people are starting to look around and ask, are you next? Lately I don't even stick around long enough in the conversation, I am gone before they can even utter "What about...."

I love my life, independence and being to able to go when needed and I've seen what a child can do to your life. I know....I know that once the child is here I'll say, "I don't remember what life was like before him/her". I know I would love them to death and love them a bit more each day but I don't want to change my life as it is right now. Am I being too selfish? Is anyone else considering remaining child free? Why?


Why Travel?

As you guys know I planned my wedding from Iraq in about 4 months, it was stressful but I booked wonderful vendors that were responsive and helpful given my situation. By the time we were ready to plan the honeymoon it was not as easy. I emailed various travel agents/agencies, I asked for Fiji, some people didn't answer, some recommended Antigua (what part of NOT the Caribbean, didn't they understand?) and simply told me I couldn't afford Fiji. I ended up planning my trip to Fiji and we had an amazing time. After we returned I was still fuming at the bad customer service I received with the honeymoon and figured I could do better. After much research, training (I ended up taking a course and hiring a business coach) I felt like it was time to go ahead, just in time for our 1st Anniversary!

I've been planning travel (and traveling) for the last 17 years, it's about time I put my experience to work!!!


Huge Announcement!

My blogging activity had slowed down much after the wedding and it wasn't because I was too busy with housework! After the wedding I decided that I wanted to pursue my entrepreneurial dreams and it had to be something related to the wedding industry. After much think and evaluating the things I am passionate about I decided that I would merge my love for weddings with my passion for travel. I've been working relentlessly for the past year and here I am just a week before my 1st wedding anniversary ready to share my project with the world! So now (drumroll please) Ladies and gentlemen (that's you hubby!), please give a round of applause (no really, stand up, take a deep breath and explode in cheers! To my new baby:

Go ahead' click on it!
