Travel “Light”

Well, when it comes to visiting other countries, I was secretly a bit apprehensive even though a cruise is like the Disneyland version of traveling. It was a perfect warm up. Of course it went very well! It is extra exhausting doing things with little ones and even more rewarding. I am really proud of us-Grant included. Sometimes I feel like I may hardly leave the house if it weren’t for people inviting me to things.

That saying, “The days are long and the years are short,” is going up in our house one of these days for certain. Do you have any sayings that keep you motivated to live life?

PS I am so much more obessed with Instagram now that I’ve gotten back into square photos. Funny, huh? These pics are from Cozumel and Jamaica from my iPhone.

  • oooh i love that quote and might need to steal it. i’ve been wanting to travel more lately too and that quote is the perfect inspiration for doing it!

    • Oh, Jackie! Thank you! That quote really makes me more present! Travel makes my husband and I normal people! HA! It’s in our blood…and now that we have Grant, we’re doing it even if it kills us..or we kill each other. Ahahahaha.

    • Thank you, Jessica! I am a big fan of the Caribbean. My favorite may be Grand Turk and St. John. Cruising is a great way to sample the islands or do it inexpensively! Girl, I miss being able to just drive down to Mexico when it was safer!

  • These pictures are so great! I love the window selfie!

    • Thanks, Chelsea! The window selfie was a little trick to get Chris into a photo. He is SO uninterested in social media etc. Opposites attract? 😉

  • Sam

    I loved insta-stalking your vacation pictures! I can’t get over how cute Grant is, next time you’re in San Diego just drop him off with Auntie Sam and let me cuddle him all day? Ok. 😉

    • Thank you, SAM!!! HA! How about I drive down right now! LOL You are so kind! We have been “house hunting” in San Diego (mostly via the internet). Still unsure of where we want to live…just know we are quickly outgrowing our current place!! Happy Monday!!

  • It looks like you had an amazing trip!

    • Thank you, Macy! It was so awesome…and we barely made it out alive. Hahahaha.
