Similar to the wedding planning situation, I didn't feel like planning a mini honeymoon. I have Hawaii in mind for the real one so I let my husband do the planning and once we arrived, I kind of regretted letting him plan it. Why? I'm not really an outdoors person...

Overall, I really had a blast. And, Chattanooga is as beautiful and scenic as they describe. I wouldn't mind visiting again but I need to stay on the ground! :)
