How to Through A Larger Than Life Small Wedding on a Budget

This one is as simple as crowdfunding your honeymoon. It might sound strange at first, but do you really need another blender or set of dinner plates? Instead of having your guests purchase a bunch of things you’ll end up trying to return anyway, why not let them chip in for…

So the kids are out of school and it's time to hit the road. The summer marks the official start of the vacation season and it's time for fun. One of my favorite vacation destinations is Disney World. I absolutely love everything about the House of Mouse.
My daughter and I visit this magical world about every two years. Now when it's time to get ready for Disney, I plan extensively. I do an extremely amount of research on what are the best days to go to which parks, I map out what's the best time of day to ride Space Mountain and plan where we are going to eat each meal. Each day on our vacation is usually from the time we get up until the time we go back to the hotel and pass out. Some would call this a little extreme. However, I call it getting the most bang for my buck.

I have such a great time when I'm in Disney world. It just brings the kid out in me. One day when we were in line at Animal Kingdom, I looked over at her and she looked a little miserable. I asked what was wrong. She told me she was tired. I couldn't understand why she didn't have extra energy. After all this place was magical. I thought that maybe Tinker Bell's fairy dust contained a little extra energy. She was having a good time. But she was tired and worn out.

Vacations are supposed to be fun and relaxing. Our time in Disney was fun. However, it wasn't balanced. I was trying to impose the same over-scheduling strategies that I used in our daily life to our vacation. I didn't really begin to understand how she was feeling until I got home. By that time I was feeling the exhaustion that she was feeling when we were in Florida. Even on vacation I didn't have balance.

I was so focused on trying to maximize the fun we experienced that I forgot about what vacations are all about. The whole purpose of going on vacation was to relax and get out of the rat race. All I called myself doing was focusing on the fun. I had completely forgotten about the relaxing part.

Vacations give us an opportunity to connect with our family and friends. It's a time to forget about work and enjoy a change in scenery. Even while we are away on vacation we should be striving for a sense of balance. Take your time and enjoy yourself. You don't have to do it all on one trip. After all when you get back home you shouldn't need a vacation from your vacation.
