I'm really slacking on posting photos from our vacation. I'm trying to touch up a bunch of them before they are all uploaded for my free Shutterfly book. I love it when I get those coupons - it happened to come at the perfect time!
Readjusting, has also thrown me into a kind of a funk.
I remember back in 2005, calling my mom after she had just gotten home from a month-long stay in France; and she seemed like she wanted nothing to do with any of us or just life, in general. At the time, I was kind of hurt because Steven and I were seriously dating and I was hinting towards my parents meeting him. I sent her a text on Wednesday morning, letting her know how I completely understood her frustration with coming back to real life...especially when it's crappy (she was under a lot of stress at the time).
Wednesday afternoon, I didn't want to think about my next doctor's appointment or dropping a large chunk of change on four new tires. Who knew that tires were so expensive?! Yikes! Reality slaps you in the face. . . quickly.
That's life and I know it. . . we could have it a lot worse. It just makes me realize how grateful I am for good vacations!
A few of my favorite things that we brought back from our trip. . .
Steven's new wedding ring! We renewed our vows. . .kidding. . .but we kind of renewed our spirits. It's Titanium (good for him - he hates the weight of jewelry) and koa wood. I think it fits him!
All of this goodness - minus the pineapple. . . we're having that beauty tonight. Hopefully, it lives up to the Maui Golds!
