Musings of a Chicago-Born New Yorker

Florida For One, Then For Two

I’ve been talking a lot recently about the plan the husband and I have for visiting 50 countries plus every state and American territory by age 50. Even places we’ve visited before alone are getting hit up with us as a couple. Coming up next is our trip to Florida.

Well, actually before that is the husband’s trip to Florida. At my alma mater, there is this amazing party thrown by one of my best friend’s (and my best man) fraternity. I never missed this party during college, and I’ve only missed it once since graduation.

This year makes the second year I’ll have missed it out of 9. This party is that great. It’s a lot of fun for undergrads and a bit of a reunion for graduates who had any tie to the fraternity. I was really looking forward to going this year with the husband, but I didn’t have enough time off left after the wedding and honeymoon.

But the husband is on Spring Break, so he’s going without me. I think I’ll be so sad about that. He was going to go with me last year and I ended up there without him, so I suppose this is okay. We’ll see if we can get both of us there next year. That really depends on whether or not he enjoys himself this year.

After the husband returns from Spring Break in Florida (as if he’s not damn near 30, ha), we’ll be heading back to Florida at the end of the month.

One of my bridesmen is getting married to his wife on a cruise the Bahamas, and I’m very much looking forward to going. The last cruise I went on was terribly depressing for a quick moment because I felt like I needed some romance. I’ve been on like 5 cruises, so that feeling took me by surprise.

I’m just glad I don’t have to see if the feeling will still be there because Iwillhave romance on this cruise. Food 24 hrs a day, unlimited ice cream, fun in the sun, a likely bar crawl in the Bahamas. Sounds amazing. Plus we have one of those fancy rooms with a jacuzzi and a balcony.

Let’s just say we’re checking Florida off our list with flair. And the Bahamas. Go us. I’ll really really try to take pictures this time.
