Our Love Story: Our First Trip Together

When you first start dating someone you tell each other all of the things that you would like to accomplish in life like have children, go wine tasting or travel. This was my first time in a relationship where we both meant and followed through with what we said. And we were about to take our first trip together...

I was excited and a little nervous when Honey suggested that I come along with him on his business trip to Denver. I wasn't working yet and I had the time so I accepted his offer to go away with my new boyfriend.

I was in my apartment, packing a suitcase for our first getaway and I pulled out layers of clothes to battle Denver's weather. I packed my snow boots, Pea coat, camera, perfume and flat iron. I encouraged Honey to pack his warmest clothes, hat and gloves. As Honey was from Northern California and I was from Toronto, I figured I knew a little more about the snow then he did. He told me that he wouldn't need winter things. So when he wasn't looking, I slipped his hat and gloves into his carryon bag.

Our flight to Denver was uneventful and I had a huge smile on my face. I was so excited and happy to be going away. We held hands and giggled throughout the flight. Honey had never seen the snow or felt winter before so he was shocked when we left the Denver airport while hailing a taxi. "Man this is cold." he said to me. "Well," I responded "I might have packed your hat and gloves for you and there in your carry on."

We were off to a good start...

As I was tagging along on his business trip, we were careful not to bump into anyone when checking into our hotel. I must admit that the sneaking around was fun. The hotel was welcoming and after battling the cold it was nice to be inside. Room service had stopped serving so Honey left the room, found an open steak restaurant and surprised me with dinner.

I was in heaven and wondered if it could get any better then this.

The next day Honey went to his two day conference and that night we had plans to have dinner with his high school friends that lived in Boulder. So during the day I got to explore Denver.

I enjoyed visiting the stores, talking with people and seeing the art at the Denver Art Museum. I surprised Honey with a sculpture that I had bought from the museum and I bought myself lovely Paris perfume stickers.

I remember two things at the end of our first trip together. First that somehow we missed our flight home and had to wait at the Denver airport for the next flight back to San Francisco. The two of us were laughing and talking the entire time while waiting for our flight. And the second thing was on the way to the airport, Honey asked me when did I want to get married and how many children did I want to have?

Instead of feeling scared and overwhelmed by his questions, I felt that this was the person that I was going to be with. We were on the same page. Tell me sweetie, have you ever felt like this so soon into a relationship and did you feel comfortable or scared?

Great post, life is soo much easier when your significant other loves traveling, I'm still planning the Grand Canyon camping trip next month and I'm soo excited to go.

Christian said...

Plus I agree with Braja, lol. Nothing is downhill, as long as you have 2 legs, 2 arms, a head and a beating heart.

Laura said...

Tanya: Wish you kind have been there with us :)

Christian: Well I have all of those especially the beating heart. Grand Canyon sounds amazing. Please take pictures.
