We booked this trip last minute, in true Kara fashion, when we realized this may be our only opportunity to get away before the baby arrives. It was a baby moon, family vacation, spring break and a celebration of me going back to work all wrapped up into one trip. We traveled with Palmer and Kevin was working remotely Monday - Wednesday so it wasn't a super relaxing vacation by any stretch but it was a nice change of scenery and a chance to see some sunshine.

Apparently it's a thing! We just returned from our family trip down to Rosemary Beach and I'm a bit obsessed with this area. I'm planning to share our full itinerary soon but first I want to cover the 30A area of Florida because I had never previously heard of it. Technically, 30A [aka County Road 30A] is about a 20-mile stretch in the Florida panhandle between Destin and Panama City.
A lot of thought, a few tears and a bunch of undue anxiety went into picking our honeymoon destination so I figured I'd share our considerations for anyone currently in that stage of wedding planning. I put a lot of pressure on myself during this process because I had unreasonably high expectations of what I considered to be "the perfect honeymoon" and if I can spare even one person a fraction of the stress I experienced, this post is worth it!
As I mentioned in my original post about Planning a Safari in East Africa, there's really not much to do since the Safari company you select organizes the entire thing [at least that was our experience]. We simply provided a rough budget, ideal travel dates, where we were coming from and where we were going after and andBeyond did the rest! It really is ideal for a honeymoon since so much planning goes into the wedding and reception. Read more about our experience on Safari here.
