Will You Take a Babymoon?

Are you pregnant?  Then chances are you’ve heard something about this thing called a “babymoon”  (or “baby moon”, depending on how you feel about spaces :) .  Babymoons are a relatively new idea, but a great one I might add! In a nutshell, a babymoon is the last vacation, hurrah, unadulterated sleep, totally selfish, whatever-you-want-to-call-it you are going to be able to take before becoming parents.  Will you ever vacation alone again? Sleep through the night again? Of course! However, it may be a while, so if you, can I think these baby moon vacations are a wonderful idea to take advantage of before your baby comes.


What are your plans?  Will you be taking a babymoon?

I'm already saving up for and brainstorming places to take my babymoon. I am going to be a single mom, so this is a really important goal for me - as self-care is going to be hard to come by after the baby comes. I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and I'm thinking perhaps a visit home to one of the Puget Sound islands, staying in a B&B, lounging for a weekend might be just the ticket. Especially because I live in California and if I stay here over the summer, I'll be struggling to say no to margaritas! Some brisk Northwest air will do my soul some good.

Best, Jessie
