I realised just the other day that I haven't posted pictures of our vacation. Things get hectic and life tends to take over. Work, kids, and every day life takes over and I lose track of the small things in life. I lose track of the small and very sentimental things life.
While on vacation I tried to soak in the small things.
Every.single.day Lilah would wake up and say "I swimmy, I swimmy"
Hubs and I took the kids to the pool every.single.day and Lilah would just stand there and wouldn't swim!!
I forget to soak these moments in. I forget how sacred they are. I thought that since Eve was older I would have learned just how quick they go by, but I have gotten tainted. I've gotten tainted by the outside world and how precious the moments of innocent childhood are.
This is the first vacation Hubs and I have taken with the girls.
Looking back a few weeks after....I miss it. I wish we could go back. We were relaxed.
Hubs often works 6 days a week and I work 3 full days bad have my online business and blog. We get dis-connected. I forget how precious life is and how important it is to appreciate the little things.
When did I become so jaded?. When did I stopappreciating the small and beautiful things in life?
I wish we could slow down.
Life should say that before you have kids and become an adult. ENTER HERE IF YOU DARE!!. I wish I had a warning at how quick life passes by.
We've been back from vacation for 2 weeks. Things have gone back to normal. Hubs working 6 days a week, me working, keeping up with house work etc.
Vacations are very short lived - even if they are so memorable.
I wish we could be on vacation every day - but thats obviously not possible.
Hubs and I have to learn to appreciate the small things and milestones.
We need to slow down and enjoy life every day.
I realised just how lucky I am. I am so lucky to have 2 beautiful and healthy children. I always knew that but it didn't really sink in.
We had a fantastic vacation and we are going to do it every year.
Next vacation is Canada with the girls in July 2012.
