Beyond our Means to our Dreams

When Jeff and I married just over twenty-five years ago it was beyond our means to have much of a honeymoon. We did get away to a cabin for a few days and went to an amusement park. We dressed up in old-fashioned wedding garb for a tin picture at the park. We came home because we ran out of money.

“Someday we’ll go on a big trip---maybe on our 25th anniversary,” my love promised.

So we did it! Twenty-five years later, we boarded an airplane and took off to Paris. We spent ten days in France and it was beyond what I could have ever imagined when I was twenty-three.

I went with low expectations because I thought that would be wise and came away thrilled.

In fact, my life has been more than I imagined---beyond what I could have ever dreamed.

  2. Years ago, my husband won a trip to Paris. We traded it for a trip to the Bahamas. And while I am a bit fan of the wonderfulness that is the Bahamas, I'm still dreaming of a trip to Paris. Thanks for sharing these beautiful images this morning.
