slowing down, catching up

sean had to go out of town for work for a few days.
i wasn’t ready to be apart again, so we packed up and joined him.
we’ve been sleeping in, catching up on family time, visiting the happiest place on earth, and eating all our favorite foods.
amidst all the craziness life throws at us, i am reminded that life. is. good.
can i get an amen?!

and come back on monday morning because i have something special, just for you!

    Sometimes it is just so good to have that time away together. When mine were little we would do the same thing since my husband traveled a lot. Have a wonderful time. Jackie

    Amen! Glad you're visiting the happiest place on earth. I wonder if your happy place is the same as mine? Disneyland? The weather is perfect. Have fun!

    Great thought!

    I used your Under The Sea decorations last weekend for my daughter's 3rd birthday and they totally made the party!

    Thank you thank you thank you!

    Very nice!

    By the way, I just LOVE your Poppy Pins on Etsy … so I just had to add them to my wishlist on my blog. So cute!

  18. 18

    Amen to that for sure! :)

    We did the same thing – my dad was in the military (he actually just recently retired from it), and he had to go out of town alot. We would go with him too! But, we [myself, my mom, and my sister] would have fun! Go to Disney World, go shopping at outlet malls, see the sites – it was fun!
