Vacation, in the summer sun.
So, months later, I am finally publishing my Hawaii photo diaries. I love photos so much and I'm so grateful for the time we had on this trip. It's SO IMPORTANT to get away without your kids. Yes, the guilt gets you! Yes, it's hard to ask someone to look after them while you're gone! If you're lucky enough to have this option, please take it! We haven't always had the option to get away. There were years that we didn't have any extra money at all and it just wasn't possible. I'm thankful for those years because it makes me realize even more now how absolutely blessed I am to be able to take little trips with Gabe now. For me, it's impossible to relax unless I am actually away from the kids for the night. Going on a date, I still worry about being home to get them on time and I can't have a good time. Anyone else? Mom-ing is so complex and so different for everyone, but I feel like we need to be honest with each other and kind with our different view points. It rubs off on our children! Kindness always! :)
Anyway, I never really felt the need to go to Hawaii but I definitely fell in love with it. I mean, just look at it! I was feeling those Gidget vibes all over the place. :)
