We didn’t have one, either! Nor a minimoon. We just didn’t have the time off or the extra cash, and we definitely didn’t want to charge one. We are hoping to take a big trip for our 2nd anniversary, but we will just have to wait and see. We own our home, though, so we can’t feel too badly about not having a fancy vacay. 😉

We didn’t! We had a cross country move and setting up our new house in OR that ate up our honeymoon money. We’re taking a small trip (3 days) for our 1 year anniversary. I’m still a little bitter about it, but settling into our new life together was more important. We were under a deadline to get moved and settled before my husband started his job.

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose:  We won’t! We are going to DC tomorrow to visit family and then going to Louisiana to visit my family this fall…we chose family over honeymoon, even though we will see them all at the wedding in June, we want to see them more 🙂

We didn’t. We spent a couple of nights in a hotel in our home city and that was it. Darling Husband couldn’t get the time off work for us to go anywhere and then it’s been one thing after another since then (trans-atlantic move, Father-In-Law died, got pregnant, now we’re having a baby…)

I think we’re planning to go on a trip with the little one sometime in late Spring-early Summer though. It’ll probably be Italy or Ireland/Scotland.

We MIGHT have some kind of mini-moon but only because we’re having the wedding in Northern California and we live in Southern California.  He graduates from med school the week after and I’ll be graduating with my masters 2 weeks later… I dont’ think we’ll have time or money to have a honeymoon!  maybe one day!

We weren’t planning on a honeymoon because of finanaces and about 2 weeks before the wedding, my parents offered us $500 for a mini-moon (VERY generous of them, considering they paid for our whole wedding…).  We spent 2 nights (really 1 day) at a localish B&B and went out for a nice dinner.

I am still a little bitter too, since all of my friends have gone on fairly extravagent honeymoons, but we’ll live.

More then anything, Darling Husband and I are just dying for a freakin’ vacation.  We both work really hard and feel like it is kind of for nothing, since we still can’t afford to ever do anything 🙁
