I'm leaving on a jet plane

This is Dave and I on a normal day

This is Dave and I before we leave for a vacation

Ok - it's really only me that feels like my eyes are going to pop out as I go crazy packing, cleaning, checking to make sure I got everything, loading up the car, packing snacks, cleaning out my fridge and just going plain bazerko before I leave for a trip. Can anyone else out there relate?

My husband? He is cool, calm, collected and had his bags packed SUNDAY for our trip which made me even all the more frazzled knowing he was all packed super duper early. Anyways, all that to say that Dave and I are going on vacation and yes, I'm even all packed and have a few minutes to sit down and write this post.

Where are we going? Good question! We are going to Hawaii for about 10+ days to celebrate our 1 year anniversary! I can't believe I've been married for one whole year! It's been a really good year and God has been good to us.

I won't be taking my computer with me which means I'm taking a vacation from blogging, facebook, twitter and e-mail. I'm even deleting fb from my phone because to be honest, that social media platform has overwhelmed me lately and I think a big break from it will be good. I'm hoping to spend some extra quality time with Dave as well as in the Word. Will you pray for me that I'll have meaningful time with Dave as well as quality time in the Word while I'm in HI? I'm also going to keep 1/2 marathon training while in HI. Wish me luck!

I will be sharing lots of pictures on Instagram! I love love love instagram and am planning on printing off lots of my instagram pictures. If you want to follow along I'd love to have you. You can find me on instagram here.

I hope you each have a wonderful couple of weeks! I have a few posts written as well as some of my sweet blog friends who will be appearing on here. I'm excited to share that with you.

  12. Oh so jealous! We went to Kauai a few years ago thanks to my dad. :). Have a fabulous vacation. Right away I was able to relax and enjoy the incredible beauty. My favorites were the sunrises so make sure you get up at least once to watch the sunrise over the ocean. I think they are even better than the sunsets.

  18. Yeah ... going through a zillion pictures is quiet the task! I can't imagine 2 months of them.

  19. Thanks, cousin! That social media break did me good. I think I'm going to keep FB off my phone. I should have deleted it way sooner and simplified.

  21. You were right that the sunrise was really pretty. I had some jet lag so I was waking up by 5am ish the first few days and I saw a couple of sunrises - so pretty!

  22. Thanks, Meredith. I appreciate the prayers. We did have some good quality time together and I enjoyed my Bible study. I'm doing one called "Jesus, the One and Only". It's been neat to see different aspects of Jesus that I had never thought about before.
