For our honeymoon, we stayed pretty close to home and went to a place called Branson, Missouri. Originally, we planned to do something much more exciting and go to Mexico, but we’re starting the process to buy a house, so we didn’t want to go too crazy right away. We’re planning to take a big trip for our 1 year anniversary instead.
On our first day out and about, we went to eat and look around the area. Since we rented a condo, we had a fully stocked kitchen that we wanted to take advantage of. We knew eating out for every meal would be expensive, so we went and got some groceries to make breakfast and a few dinners, as well as some healthy snacks to munch on while we hung out at home. By far my favorite snack was these dark chocolate covered almonds. They were to die for!
Branson isn’t the most exciting place to visit — mainly we went because we wanted to get out of KC to just be together and spend time just the two of us. Which was exactly what we got! We’re both pretty big home bodies, which works out in both of our favors. We were happy to hang out, enjoy the view (we were right on the lake!) and just enjoy being newly married! We watched a ton of Red Box movies, which was fun — I literally can’t remember the last time I had seen a recent movie lol!
All in all, we had a pretty great trip and even though it rained a bit those first few days, it didn’t get us down.
Have a lovely week!!
