It was such a fun trip. I can’t wait to take our girls to London and Paris. And Florence. And Greece. And New Zealand. And so many other places on my never ending I Want To Go To There list.
Sure, my husband and I may not be able to do everything we might want to do with our daughters in tow, but I’m okay with that. There’s still so much to see. So much to explore. So much to fall in love with.
No matter how much you plan on something, sometimes things just don’t work out.
C’est la vie.
That’s life, people say.
While I believe that, it doesn’t mean that I am immune to the feelings of disappointment that go along with it.
My husband, daughters, and I have the opportunity to travel to Japan this summer with a couple of our good friends, who, lucky for us, speak fluent Japanese. I can’t wait to go because I love traveling and experiencing different cultures. The thrill of being in a new city is something I quite enjoy.
Although I’m super excited to go to Japan, it means that we won’t be able to go to Europe next year for our 10th wedding anniversary .
Something that I’ve been wanting to do for about seven years.
But, a tiny part of me is still holding out hope that somehow, some way we’ll get an extra $5,000 to be able to make the trip to Europe happen.
