a shameless pitch for hubby*wife vision-casting trips

dress as skirt: charlotte russe, top: macy's, belt: papaya, headband: DIY (again, can you believe it!?), necklace: some seaside shop in south carolina, boots: target

Patrick and I are young sprouts with the whole married business. But one thing I think we have done right is to take a just-the-two-of-us weekend, which we call a Vision Trip, every 6 months. While there is lots of romance & galavanting that goes on, the heart of the trip is to cast vision for our marriage & dream together about the future. We cover just about every topic under the sun (spiritual, emotional, physical, social, intimacy, job/career, financial, family, etc) We have goals & dreams under each category (short-term & long-term), which we actually rate ourselves on. For example, under spiritual, one of our goals is "consistency in personal quiet times". There's a five-star rating system. Ha! We're nerds :) We also take time to add/edit anything as we go along. It's a time to check in and dream big with one another. Yes, we are growing together as a couple, but we are also growing individually, so it's important to get on the same page with one another. Anyway... we have our 3rd Vision Trip THIS WEEKEND! Yay, so excited. We use our Discover Reward points and get a local hotel through Priceline's "name your price" deal. We go out to eat & sleep in & lounge. It's like a mini-vaca.

So if you are married, I would highly recommend gettin yoself on a Vision Trip schedule. Fo reals.

^^ here we are on our last vision trip ^^
