Tiff & Stu’s Honeymoon Redo

Tiffany and I met on Christmas night of 2009 in Fort Lauderdale and were engaged in Vegas a few months later. We got married on November 7, 2014 in St. Petersburg, FL and immediately left on what was supposed to be a two-part, three week honeymoon. However the first night on the cruise, I fell ill (with what became a lifelong rare vomiting disease called CVS). The medical professionals on the cruise were concerned since this was during the Ebola outbreak, so they quarantined me to my room until the last day of the cruise. I missed the entire, all inclusive trip. Because of this, we thought it best to cancel the second half of the trip at Breathless, Punta Cana. Most of it was non-refundable. The illness I mentioned hospitalized me many times over the next couple years and I eventually had to resign from a job I loved, as a Rep for Police Vehicle equipment. We moved to Las Vegas in 2016, and I met a whole group of new doctors. I went through several bouts of medications and am now starting to get it under control with the addition of medical marijuana. I was able to get back to work before covid hit. 2020 was supposed to be my year to grow back in the career I loved, 2020 was supposed to be the year we started saving to take our first vacation since that failed honeymoon trip in 2014. But..Due to covid restrictions, we now have to push that back to 2021. My nurse wife has been working tirelessly the whole time, while putting herself through school to make a better life for us. I’ve never tried any type of fundraiser before, so if this gets us there sooner, great. Otherwise It looks like by the time we save enough to go on the trip, it will have been ten years since we’ve taken one. It’s our dream to redo that missed honeymoon as soon as possible. If our story touched you in any way and you can help, we love you for it. We’re going to video some highlights and make a YouTube video once we do finally get the opportunity. Thanks for reading!
