Time flies by when you're having fun, or so they say, and in our case time has also helped us accumulate all the things we need to start our new life together - before the wedding! We would love for any blessings that would have gone towards a traditional gift registry to be applied to our honeymoon registry: gifts of new experiences together that will create memories to last a lifetime.
Why Honeymoon in California when we live here? During our early dates, we chatted about places we wanted to explore. We discovered that neither of us has traveled all the way down the California coast by car. We've since traveled as far down as the northern part of Big Sur, but have dreamed of going farther. Some day. When we had more time.
For our honeymoon, we are super-excited to finally be taking that trip. We plan to take a week to explore the coast from Monterey to San Diego. We are looking forward to stopping at beautiful beaches, driving along fabulous cliffs and coast lines, and picnicing all the way down. (And enjoy some wine, of course, in the evenings.)
We looked at the typical honeymoon resorts, the islands, and places further afield. Seemed complicated, and expensive. Oddly enough, the thought of sharing a liesurely ride down the coast and being delighted by California's everyday beauty and loveliness fills us with happiness.
If our trip inspires a vacation memory of your own that you'd love us to experience, feel free to add a Custom Gift with notes below.
Hopefully it goes without saying that gifts are not expected. We are just thrilled to be able to celebrate with you and appreciate all of your love and support during this special time in our lives.
