My Husband Planned a Surprise Honeymoon – Part 2

Have you been on the edge of your seat? Probably not. Especially considering you probably follow along on Instagram and have seen where we went on our honeymoon ­čśéRegardless, let’s jump back in to the recap.

Cam was slammed with organizing the move, setting up everything at our new place, and also starting a new job – which required him to spend 2 weeks in California over a 2 month period…once for an orientation and then a second for a finance conference his team was attending. read more
