If you follow me on Twitter or read EAD Living you might know that I’m an avid traveler – in fact there is nothing I love more. (Except for puppies, that is.) So it has to be said that if I were to get married again I would jump all over setting up a honeymoon registry with Travelers Joy.

Honeymoon is booked!

Posted 11/30/2010 by in Honeymoons & Travel, Local \ 6 comments

A few weeks ago we booked our honeymoon, woohoo! We had been searching and searching for a great deal to Maui in April, but everything around that time was so expensive. We had also heard that food and drinks are very expensive in Maui and since we are quite frugal when it comes to eating at restaurants, we decided to …

Paradise Lost, and Found

My husband and I met as a result of serving in the Peace Corps in Africa, so it should come as no surprise that our honeymoon would be somewhere off the beaten path.  As much as we love relaxing on a beach with pina coladas, we also enjoy the essence of traveling and getting down and dirty with the local culture—so …

Mini-Moon in Mexico

My husband and I knew early on we wanted to go on an exotic honeymoon far, far, FAR away.  Unfortunately, we weren’t able to do it right after the wedding.  In addition to exhausting our finances and planning on the wedding, June was a very busy month for both of us at work. So we decided that we would save …

Instead of hopping on a plane right after our wedding, we decided to drive up north for our honeymoon. We knew we wanted to go to Maine where his family vacations every summer for a few days, but I also wanted to go somewhere in New England since I really had never spent more than an evening there before (except …

This recent New York Times article, 100 Hotels Under $150 by Stuart Emmrich, reminded me that we have yet to decide on what to do about a honeymoon.

[Side note: You should check out the New York Times piece if you’re going to Europe on a budget. It lists hotels under $150 in a variety of cities, including London, Florence, Edinburgh, …

Hello hello hello again! I’ve just gotten back from the whirlwind that is getting married and then spending 10 days in Hawaii. It was a long trip back to Boston but we’ve finally arrived and are just trying to stave off jetlag long enough to celebrate my new hubby’s birthday which happens to be today!

Anyways, there’s so much I want …

Is it October already?

I am in total shock that my wedding is just about a month away – where did the time go? September was a total blur – starting with a last minute trip to Paris (I know, pretty amazing), followed closely by my bachelorette and Homecoming at Davidson. Then I had two fabulous showers in Brian’s hometown, and then a work …

Back from Paradise as a Happily Married Woman

Friends! It’s been so long, and I have so many stories to share! August 28th was the most perfect day of my life — rain and all. There was spontaneous singing during the ceremony. There were bridesmaids with red umbrellas and groomsmen with mugs of microbrews. There were proud parents. There were family cookbooks for every guest. And there was …

The Proposal: Part 1

One day back in January…

Him: Hey, you should pack a bag for the weekend, because we’re going somewhere.

Him: I can’t tell you, it’s a surprise.

Me: Well if I don’t know, how do I know what to pack?

Him: Um…just bring two sets of clothes.

Me: Are we going somewhere nice? Do I need a dress? What about …
