Today is my husband's 30th birthday.
I didn't want to get him a "regular" gift for such a big milestone birthday (even though he really does want an iPhone!), so I did something that I've never done before.
I planned a trip without his input.
I know. Totally difficult for someone like me, who can be indecisive to a fault, especially when it comes to something that has so many options (like, um, TRAVEL). There were so many times during the process when I wanted to turn to Michael and say, "What should we do?? Flight A or Flight B?!" Or "What do you think of this price for hotel? Yea or nay?" But in the spirit of pulling off a good surprise--which I *love* to do--I did not say a single word.
I'm sure you want to know where I chose to take my birthday boy husband, don't you? This is also going to be our first trip with our little Nora. It will actually be a much better "first trip" to help ease us in to traveling with a baby, rather than jumping right in and immediately taking her all of the way to the other side of the country.
We are going to Charleston, South Carolina.
And so, now that Michael knows, it is OK for all of you to know, which means... I can ask, like I always do, for RECOMMENDATIONS! Wheeee!
Charleston restaurants, landmarks, activities, etc. If you've done it and liked it, we want to hear about it, please!
And, of course, I can't end a birthday post without officially saying...
