My life has been insanely busy lately, but thankfully, all in a good way. I spent the final summer days paying a much overdue visit to my sister in Chicago and as soon as I returned I accepted a job offer after a month-long run of vigorous interviewing.
The day after my return from Chicago, Mr. Baldwin hopped on a jet plane for a week-long business trip. He graciously invited me along for a few days but although I would have loved jetting off for a whirlwind weekend with him, I knew I was too busy and sadly declined his enticing offer.
Realizing how hectic both of our schedules have been lately, we agreed to make time for a relaxing getaway before I start my new job. Somewhere away from the big city, surrounded by nature, peace, quiet and each other.
The past few days I’ve caught myself fantasizing about cuddling under the blankets with Baldwin, sleeping in for a change, breathing fresh air and enjoying the star-filled nights away from the city—among other things (wink, wink).
But mid day-dream, reality came crashing down on me. I’ve haven’t gone on a trip with a guy in over five years! A slew of questions immediately began racing through my mind: Will we agree on the same tunes for the long car ride? Will we get on each other’s nerves? Will we bore each other? Will we end up in a nightmare of a hotel and have only bad memories of our first trip together?
Although I’m ecstatic to head to the great outdoors with Mr. Baldwin, I must admit, I'm kind of nervous, too! So chicas, do you have any pointers or tips when it comes to traveling with your honey?
