Home from Vacation…But Wanting to Go Back!

I can’t believe how fast a week of vacation can fly by!  It seems like it was only minutes ago that I loaded practically everything we own into our car and headed north.  Now I’m sitting in my kitchen, surrounded by laundry that needs laundering and stuff that needs putting away.   Our house has that funky smell from being lifeless for too long, and there’s nothing in our fridge that isn’t screaming,  “Warning!  I’m spoiled”. 

Part of me wants to go back. 

Back to the beach!

 

Back to the woods!

Back to the lake!

Back to our family!

 Back to the familiarity and sweetness of those we love the most! 

But, as we all know, there’s no going back! 

That’s why we file our precious memories and count our blessings for the magic of time spent together…

and move on! 

We have a first birthday to plan!

    I can’t believe how big Marykate is getting. She is absolutely beautiful. So happy for your family and all the happiness that has finally come your way. I’m going through a lot right now, and your posts truly lift my spirits. Beautiful AND real! Thank you!

    Thanks, Missy. The pic of the boys on the doc is very special! And we can’t believe they are almost one either! The year has flown in so many ways…and crawled in others ;)

    Such beautiful pictures to treasure forever. I especially love the group photos…the one with whom I am going to assume are the grandparents is beyond priceless.

    Just love the pictures. Did you take them yourself? I love MK’s boots with her lovely dress.

    Hi Cindy! Yes! I took them myself. I’m getting better at the whole photography thing but not nearly as good as the mama who took their first year pics. Her name is Allie Darr and her photos are featured in the Year of Gratitude post. She has an amazing talent!

    Hi Cindy, Yes…I took them myself (in a about a 20 minute window before we dragged everyone to the beach for a giant family picture…hence the fancy dress!) Thanks!

    […]  Every summer we carve a week out of our schedule and set up camp at my parent’s home.  Like last year, it was the girls and I for most of the week.  The boys joined us just in time for the weekend and […]
