Thankful for Remembering to Chill, Planning the Next Vacation, & the Sounds of a Full Basement

Day 2,303


I need to do a better job of relaxing when something doesn’t go as planned. As we were getting things set and reserved for our vacation I was getting way too agitated because certain things weren’t working out as smoothly as they should. Long story short, everything worked out totally fine in the end – take a deep breath and it will go more smoothly next time.


Our next family vacation is all planned and ready! Canadian Rockies here we come! When Becky showed Dominic a picture of where we were headed his response was priceless – “You’ve got to be kidding me!!!” So pumped and excited to share one of our favorite places with the boys this summer.

Becky and I are both big fans of getting everything all planned and booked far in advance. Personally, when I stress early and before the vacation I know I’ll be able to take a deep breath, chill, and be more present on vacation when I am there. Get the stress out of the way early and then enjoy the trip!


Hearing the sounds of Gavin and his buddies goofing around and having fun in the basement while I type this blog has me smiling. It brings back so many memories of great times with my high school friends back in the day. So many awesome times spent with my friends doing the same thing – though we were often hanging out in an attic rather than a basement. Glad they’re having fun just like we did back in the day!
