Newlyweds Kellie Pickler and husband Kyle Jacobs may have spent a coupleÂ romantic days in theÂ CaribbeanÂ during their wedding, but their honeymoon destination was a little less glamorous. Â The two jumped on a plane and flew to Iraq where the country singer performed for Â troops as a part of the USO, and she said Jacobs loved it. Â “That was part of my honeymoon,” Pickler said according to People. Â “It was so romantic! Â No, it was just that I had already committed to going over there and I wasn’t going to cancel because that wouldn’t have been right.”Â As a long time supporter of the troops, the singer said it was a great experience for her to share with her new hubby.
What do you do if you don’t have time for a traditional honeymoon?
People live busy and hectic lives, and taking time off from work may seem impossible. Â If you don’t have time for a traditional honeymoon, Cupid has some tips to make sure you spend time together as newlyweds:
1. Make time: Â Everyone is entitled to some rest and relaxation, so plan to take time off from work together, and plan a trip. Â It might not be right after your wedding, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t call it a honeymoon.
2. Quick trip: You may not have a week to jet off to somewhere tropical, but you can go on a weekend trip to a destination where you know you’ll both have fun. Â Regardless of where you end up, you’ll be able to enjoy spending that time with each other, flaunting your wedding bands.
3. Take time: Â It’s important for newlyweds to enjoy alone time together, especially during the honeymoon stage so don’t take it for granted. Â Set aside one or two nights a week where you turn off your cell phones, put your work away and focus on doing something together whether it’s a dinner out or staying in and watching a movie.
