J + M: Kauai 2012

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy here.

I never anticipated 30days turning into a daily thing for me when I started it in 2007.  I just wanted a place to share my favorite posts and ideas. Somehow over the years it has grown into a five day a week thing.  It’s awesome.  And yet, sometimes it can feel a little overwhelming with everything else I have going on in my life.  Three active kids, involved in church, fun friends, QBM, family and more…  In talking with other blog friends- it seems I’m not alone.  (right?)
Last week Josh and I were able to get away- our moms took over our crazy kids so we could go on vacation to Kauai.  It’s been a super busy year and our vacation couldn’t have come at a better time.  We hadn’t gone away, just the two of us, (other than a night here or there) since 2006.  
It was exactly what we both needed- to just relax and spend time together.  We ate great food, sat on the beach and by the pool, toured the island, played games, laughed, talked, talked and talked some more.  A wonderfully fabulous week together that I will cherish forever.

Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed with everything you have going on?
How do you unwind?

    We were there at the same time! Your pictures were fun to look at because we have so many that are similar. We thought it was so amazing too and can’t wait to go back. I’m thinking we need a vacation home there. Someday…

      Kat- Kauai is my favorite too! We went a few years ago with our kids. This time it was fun to just be able to relax alone! Thanks for the comment.
