Our Perfect Christmas Babymoon

Our first baby is going to be born in less than three months... I can't believe it! We are so excited to have a new little love in our family. Both Joe and I have always dreamed of being parents one day. It's almost a dream that it's actually happening! Joe and I are also super intentional about putting one another first in our own lives because we just love each other so much. We don't want that to change after the baby comes and we know that it doesn't have to! We want to date each other even after we are old and grey so getaways like this one only make me more excited that I have such an awesome husband. We wanted to celebrate this Christmas season in a special way since it's the last Christmas ever without kids.. ever! What better way to celebrate than to a mini getaway to Opryland Hotel in Nashville...
 
 

 
 










 
These are just a few of the hundreds of photos we took! We had the best time. The staff were so kind, the resort was gorgeous, the food was yummy. On the morning before we left, my sweet husband brought me breakfast in bed... my favorite Starbucks coffee and delicious food. Then, we shopped until we dropped for two days and headed to spend the weekend with our families! We cannot wait to take our kiddos back here in a few years for Christmas since there were so many things to do for families with kids. It will be so fun but this weekend just the two of us will always be our favorite! It was the best weekend ever!

  3. Just down the road from me! I've never been inside though. You're so cute with your bump!
    PS. Did you recently change your blog name? I think we were emailing a few weeks ago because you and your husband look soooo familiar. Haha! This blog name didn't sound familiar though.

  4. I was at the Opryland when I was 12 for a family vacation & it was gorgeous back then. I can't imagine what it looks like at Christmas time, let alone 15+ years later. :)

  9. It looks like you had such a lovely time!! We're trying to figure out where to go for our babymoon with baby #2, but we can't even decide whether to bring baby #1 or not! It may become less relaxing than I had originally anticipated ;-) -- Lisa | Two Martinis

  10. Oh my word -- it's breathtaking!! Amazing! I'm so glad you had a great time!
    I wish my husband and I would have gone on a babymoon. At the time we were both sooooo busy and didn't think we could take time away from work (plus my husband was finishing school), but we could have, in retrospect, and we should have.
