It isn’t often that Ryan, my husband, and I escape from home together. Just the two of us? Alone? It’s quite rare.

When we do get a chance to slip away, it’s typically to a local event or for a quick bite to eat. It’s almost never in the form of a real vacation.

Well, this is changing in a few days, thanks to Carnival.

Yup, it’s true. On July 9th, Ryan and I will set sail on the Carnival Magic on a 7 Day Western Caribbean from Port Canaveral. To say that we’re overjoyed is a huge understatement.

This will mark the longest we’ve ever been away from the kids, as well as our first time cruising with Carnival. The reality of yummy food, entertainment, excursions, and relaxation at our fingertips cannot come soon enough. We are counting down the days until we leave!

Of course, I will be sharing my journey on the Magic with all of you as it happens on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat, too. I hope you are ready for a big adventure.

Twitter Chat!

I also hope you will join me on July 6th at 12pm EST to a fun Twitter chat with Carnival!
