What Is Your Perfect Honeymoon?

So I was watching an episode of Roseanne today and it was an episode where the kids were younger. My mom and I think after they won lottery and Darlene has the baby, the show goes downhill. Anyways, the episode where I got my next blog post idea was the one where Dan and Roseanne plan their second honeymoon. Dan thinks a cabin in Wisconsin is the perfect honeymoon, but Roseanne doesn’t think so. She wants to go to Florida. They end up at the end of the episode, staying at home while Jackie takes the kids. Roseanne tries to be romantic and lights some candles and had some wine. Roseanne teases Dan with wanting either a stream or waterfall effect done by their kitchen faucet. The last part of the scene is of Roseanne spraying Dan with the water and Dan grabs the wine and starts shaking it up and shoots out of the bottle and Dan says, “NAGARIA FALLS!”

So I decided to ask the question to both married women but also single women as well. Where did you go on your honeymoon? What is your ideal honeymoon? These were just some of the comments I got on both of these questions. My mom posted on the comment and said that everybody got drunk but her, because she was pregnant with me. It’s okay, I find that hilarious, so you’re allowed to laugh if you want to! Another person said she went to a cabin where no one knew them. My aunt posted that she went to Franklin, TN but had to leave early because there was a tornado. I only had two singles comment and she said, what every single woman wants to do for their wedding and honeymoon. Go to Hawaii. Even my two main characters of my story went to Hawaii for their honeymoon. The other said she’d like to have her honeymoon in Ireland or Paris. So far I haven’t gotten anymore replies on either Facebook or Twitter.

So that only leads to my answer for my own questions. I am not married, so I technically can’t answer the first question. The second though, my ideal honeymoon would be adventurous. Hopefully, my other half would be just so daring and has a big bucket list of travels as I do. So speaking of bucket list, I think my future husband and I should do at least four different things that are on our bucket lists. I think that would be interesting to see what each of us discover about our travels and interests. It’s also out of the box, which is what my life is about anyways. Plus, if we did this for our honeymoon, it would pretty cool to do that for every year for an anniversary gift to each other. You would have to know their lists very well though. That’s only fair. I think going to Hawaii or somewhere warm to too traditional. I mean, that’s what everybody that has lived in the colder places choose to go. I say that, but I’m pretty sure I have “Bora Bora” on my list. I think it’s best to keep that one for a later on in the year kind of gift. Or if your spouse has done stupid, but hopefully you have some common sense to see through the lies of that gift.

This is just my answer to the question. I’m welcome for some answers from you too. If you had a honeymoon, where did you go? And if you’re single, where would you want to spend your honeymoon? 

Five Sentence Fiction: Alone

What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.

This week: ALONE

It was small with ivory draps on the table with a nice centerpiece with a single white candle and red rose.

Malin only ordered a glass of wine but had the waiter leave the bottle.

She sat back in her chair, she pulled out her book that she had stuffed inside her bag and began reading it.

She sat on the side where she came into the restaurant and had her eyes fixed on the nice looking man asking the waiter for reservations, when he looked through the room and saw Malin’s face.

He took one look at her and as the waiter turned around to grab the menu behind him, the young man skipped out the door like a cat that got scared out of its mind; she was truly hurt but knew it was too easy to be true, at least now she can go home with a grin on her face and tell her family about her wonderful date alone.
