Kyle and I are headed to Spain!! Wooohoooo!! I’m a little excited if you couldn’t tell. This will be the very first time we will be traveling outside of the country without kids, and while I’m sure we’ll miss the kiddos– the time has truly COME. I traveled so much growing up, all over the world, but when I met Kyle at just 24 years old I was definitely in a money saving mode. He had just switched careers, was working a lot, and was the same way! We got engaged quickly, and all our resources went in to our wedding and traveling back and forth to Charleston to prepare. Our honeymoon to Hawaii was the first vacation we ever took together.
With two little kids and busy work schedules, we haven’t gotten a chance to travel together as much as we would like– and it’s something we both love so much. Now that the kids are a bit older, we are finally Venturing out– and I couldn’t be more excited to head to Spain! Mallorca is a place I’ve never been, and now we have ties there. A few years ago, Kyle and I became part owners if the Mallorca soccer team– which was a dream come true investment for Kyle. This will be the first time he gets to visit the stadium in person, and we’re both excited to check it out. I just can’t wait for the food, the wine, the sleeping in, and the time alone with my husband. I think we really need it.
I was completely looking forward to packing for this trip, because I didn’t have to factor in taking care of kids at all! Bring on all the silk! LOL. But seriously, being able to just dress for yourself, and add some cute date night looks, is heaven. My trick for these quick trips (we are only gone for a few days) is to pack within a restrained color palette so everything can be mixed and matched together! I was determined to fit everything in a carry-on, so I definitely packed on the lighter side. I always take a second BIG bag for the airplane also, so I have a little extra packing room.
I can’t wait to share pictures from our trip! Let me know if you have any Mallorca tips!
