Tonight I got back to Denver after spending some time with my family and my sister’s new baby (who is just SO sweet), and tomorrow at the completely insane time of 4:15 am we wake up to head to the lovely Northwest (I’m in love with that area of the US) on an unofficial Babymoon (a Babymoon is an idea that has gained popularity in recent years. Babymoons are trips that 1st time parents take as one last getaway before the new baby arrives).
I say we’re going on an “unofficial” Babymoon because it just so happens that I’m pregnant and in the recommended 2nd trimester babymoon timeframe then that we were like planning a trip for the sole purpose of getting away before the baby gets here. (I really liked reading this post by Glorianna about her Babymoon)
So, the idea of a babymoon kinda sorta reeks of another commercialized idea to get people to spend money on yet another thing so it makes me curious, what are your thoughts on Babymoons? Are they just ploys to get people to spend money or are they really worthwhile trips for couples to relax and spend quality time together before their lives change?
p.s. I have lots of reader question and answer posts planned for this week along with some other fun posts. I’ll also be posting photographs of the trip on my Instagram account if you want to follow along there. xo! Anna
