(The colors of my home...little bits and baubles from my apartment.)
Last Friday, I squawked about selecting our honeymoon spot and challenged you to guess where we'll shack up. (Classy, I know.) I fancied myself tricky enough to surprise you girls, but alas...you all know me too well.
It's GREECE! The whites, blues and seafoams. Alli was right: it was my color palette that gave it away! And we're blocking off two weeks to take on this country.
Week one: The picturesque island of Santorini is our backdrop, chillin' in the city of Oai, which boasts itself as the most beautiful place to watch a sunset. (We plan to check that out every night.) Ever the planner, Gabe scoured the island to find the perfect, perfect place to stay, Ikies Traditional Houses. They're sweet little cave houses carved into the side of the city, overlooking the caldera...large, comfy balconies with hot tubs + cushy seating...and the photos already have my heart pounding. Perfect for holing up if we'd like, perfect for stepping out if we prefer.
Week two: Our best friends are joining us in Athens! Did you just raise your eyebrows? We know it sounds a lil' strange. But conveniently enough, our best friends happen to be married to each other...and this past December we uncovered that they, too, are longing to visit Greece. So, that's handy, right? Week two is morphing into a seven day dream-double-date of sorts. While honeymooning with your pals might sound odd, we're all so comfortable together that we're totally digging the idea. Why not? Our group of four hasn't exactly had a team meeting, but we're all on the same page: Sightseeing. Eating. Relaxing. Laughing.
A romantic week alone with my new husband. A playful week together with our best friends. Dream. Honeymoon.
I may or may not be more excited for my honeymoon than for my wedding. That's okay, right?
Have you been to Greece? If not, is it on your travel list? Will it be just like Mamma Mia? Oh, I hope so.
