A Leap of Faith

Ryan and I are going to celebrate our 10th anniversary this year.

We've wanted to take a fun trip to celebrate 10 years together.

Last week, in an incredible leap of faith that the economy will get better and that we'll still have a job in a few months--or in a ridiculously stupid and careless move--we booked a trip.

To Paris.

I was there in 2005 with my dad and sisters, for a trip of a lifetime. I told Ryan that I couldn't go again, I haven't even finished my scrapbook from the first time around.

He thought that was the most ridiculous reason to NOT go on a trip that he had ever heard.

He might be right.

I can't wait to share it with Ry.... I'm guaranteed to get way better photos this time anyway, which is good because I don't think we'll be buying many souvenirs.

We both decided that if Ryan doesn't have a job down the road, at least we'll have been to Paris.

Oh oh oh oh! Happy Anniversary! Troy told me about this and I was meaning to email you comments with tons of exclamation points in them but hadn't gotten around to it. Holy Cow though! What a great trip. Eat so much wonderful food for me and come home and tell me all about it so I can feel like I went. Do you know French?

We've been thinking about a fall trip too. Something about difficult times inspires optimism in some of us, I think!

Oh. My. Goodness. That is fabulous! I am SO excited for you! Economy schmonomy. Who even cares about that? (I was kidding karma, don't get back at me.) I am so happy for you two!

Oh Paris! What a great idea....maybe when my kids get a little bigger. Spencer and I went to Europe when we first got married and I will always treasure the memories!

Heidi said...

Wow! I can't wait to hear about it! Happy 10th Anniversary! XOXOX!

lucky you!
I plan that for my 20th!
I wonder where people who live in Paris would think is the place to go?

Kristi said...

Yea! Yea! Yea!! I'm so excited for you and Ryan. I'm sure it will be great!

Julie Pia said...

Awesome! I think that is the smartest decision. I like the idea of booking and forgetting about it. Plus, it's something to look forward to and we all need that when it's FREEZING outside. Sooooo fun!

Yay, Lisa....that sounds like fun! It' our 15th this year, maybe I'll have to have Matt read your blog and talk him into an amazing trip somewhere, too!
I'm so excited for you!

Hooray for Paris!!! A down economy is the best time to travel because you can get really good deals...right?
So excited for you :)
