It wasn't so long ago that I had, perhaps, unusually high expectations when making plans for long weekends and vacations.  I would spend lots of time planning, shopping, and generally prepping for these times.  Vacations weren't a complete success unless I could be where I wanted to go and could wear what I wanted to wear and be with whom I wanted to be with.

This past week, I've spent a lot of time hanging with the girls doing things that, in the past, I wouldn't have found especially interesting, and certainly not relaxing... and I've had the absolute best time.  It's amazing how the simplest things seems to be the best.

Nowadays, having a good time means watching the girls have a good time, regardless of my own comfort.  Of course, having a stack of my favorite magazines makes it even better.  I can at least enjoy fantasizing about the vacation of my dreams.  I must be growing up...   


  1. Sometimes simple is so much better... not to mention less stressful than trying to make everything perfect!!
    Hi! New follower from VoiceBoks Members to Remember... Nice to meet you!
    Angela @ First Comes Baby...

  2. I love it! I am so in agreement! Sometimes it is the (not so anticipated, not so quiet)small things that matter most! I wish I could always remember that!! Stopping by from Voiceboks - new follower too. Hope to see you soon!

  3. Not sure what's sweeter - your baby in fur or the revelation. Precious! My mom said 22 years ago: You have kids, help them grow up, what really happens? They help us do so. So true :)

  4. I think the times spent with our little bundle of joys are the best. Visiting from voiceBoks.

  5. I can very well relate. These days, I am content and happy just seeing my little one play and discover new things on her own.
    Nice catching up with you via vB.
