Well, I'm back from my amazing Colorado vacation. I said goodbye to cool summer breezes and hello to hairdryer wind.
I hope you enjoyed my wonderful guest bloggers! Thanks, Sarah and Kate! Y'all are awesome, and I loved reading your posts and seeing that others were inspired by your words, as well.
I always look forward to vacation because I usually learn something new or gain a deeper appreciation for something I hadn't thought of before. This year in Colorado I learned a lot. It's such an inspiring place; you'd be hard-pressed to not learn something. I have been several times before, but this was the first time I had been with kids, so it put a totally new spin on it. Here are some of the nuggets I took home with me:
1. I am most uptight and unhappy when I am the least empathetic and selfless.
Nutritious food makes for happier and more well-behaved kids (and parents), and crappy food makes for crappy attitudes and behavior.
My kids can do way more than I expect out of them.
Contentment is necessary before dreams can be fulfilled.
Having three boys beckons me to live adventurously.
Having experiences like this with my family is absolutely priceless.
