Dreaming of Warmer Days, Big Ships, And Someone Else to Plan My Vacation!

This post is sponsored by Dream Vacations, however, all opinions expressed are our own.

Over the past few weeks, I have watched five of my friends post on Facebook their countdowns for their upcoming cruises. Then come all of the fun photos that they just have to post… smiling faces as they sip frozen drinks from the Lido deck, snorkeling in crystal blue water, dancing the night away in the disco, holding up their winning bingo card. The list of fun things goes on and on.  

Meanwhile, I am here in Charleston trying to figure out which temperature to set my thermostat. I’m not saying that I am jealous BUT this mom is tired of the cold weather. I am tired of battling the next cold/fever. I want someone else to make my bed and fix my dinner! (Ok, now I sound a little bratty!)

Maybe…just maybe…I’m not the only mom out there a little green with envy.  

Are you longing for warmer weather? Looking for some R&R? Want to find a vacation where there is something for the entire family to enjoy?

Did you answer “HECK YES” to any of the questions above? Then you’ll want to read on and spoiler alert: there’s a promo code included for you!

For her, Charleston has changed so much in the past few years and she hopes that Charleston doesn’t lose its charm. She believes that you can have it all - you just have to work at it, believe in yourself, always have coffee and/or wine readily available, and forget about sleep.
