A huge thank you to Armed Forces Vacation Club® for sponsoring this post!
For the first time in years the kids are with a babysitter and my husband and I are on vacation—alone.
It’s almost like we forgot how to enjoy ourselves without the constant interruption of little voices shouting our names and little hands tugging at our shirt.
We sit there starring at each other and I can’t help but laugh. You know? We spend all this time dreaming about a vacation without kids. Then you finally get that moment and you don’t really know what to do with yourselves.
This is the dream vacation.
And it’s going to happen in exactly 2 years when we move back to the United States from Okinawa, Japan. My husband and I are finally going to take a vacation alone together since our honeymoon.
After visiting family in the Midwest and dropping the kids off, we will book a resort through Armed Forces Vacation Club. That’s where you get the best deal! Week-long resort stays start as low as $349, which averages to less than $50 per night.
Once we arrive in our room, we will enjoy silence, poolside drinks, leisurely walks, sleeping in, and breakfast in bed. We will probably spend a good portion of our trip staring at each other, not knowing what to do with ourselves. I’m okay with that.
You can take a dream vacation too.

This dream vacation talk is so enticing, my husband and I may need to book our trip much sooner. It’s easy to allow the craziness of military life and young kids to swallow us whole. To allow little voices and little hands to take over every moment of our lives. To forget that we are a couple who needs time just for us.
Keeping a strong military marriage includes getting a babysitter, going out to dinner once in a while, taking that weekend getaway, and eventually taking that week-long vacation without breaking the bank.
