The Accidental Girl Scout (or “Who knew I’d be selling cookies on my honeymoon?”)

The Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace and Girl Scout Museum has become a honeymoon hotspot!

WEDDING PICTURE? The Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace and Girl Scout Museum has become a honeymoon hotspot!

SUBMITTED BY: Kristine Carlson    LOCATION: Savannah, Georgia (1997)

When Kristine Carlson and her husband-to-be Phil were looking for a romantic honeymoon destination, they skipped over the Vegas chapel and Niagara Falls heart-shaped hot tubs and went straight for the National Girl Scout Museum.

Kris is a s’more-loving Brownie leader who just couldn’t resist posing next to GSA founder Juliette Gordon Lowe.

“I’m sure the only reason Phil agreed to participate was because we were on our honeymoon,” she says. “Notice his happy smile.  Can’t imagine him letting that photo be taken now!”

We’re impressed by the Teddy Roosevelt Rough Rider fashions that the earliest girl scouts wore. We’d be even more impressed if Phil modeled the modern lime green uniform to surprise Kris on their next wedding anniversary.
