I got married quite young, which was very normal at that time in the south. We didn't have very much money, but we already had a passion for travel. No money and wanting to travel aren't a good mix! So we did what we could...we started small. We traveled within our own state. We stayed at the cheapest hotels we could find. We ate cheap food. And we had a blast! Knowing that we planned to travel our whole lives, we decided to start a tradition on our honeymoon. We would buy a souvenir spoon in each new state or country that we visited. We literally started this tradition ON our honeymoon by purchasing the spoon rack and our first spoon. It has been 19 years and our marriage and this tradition are still going strong!
