My Life Lately {As Told Through Photos}

No matter how far or close your vacation destination, it always seems like a world away, a complete escape from reality.  And in this surreal vacation bubble, my kids fight less, go to bed more easily, and get closer to each other.  We recently headed to Miami and I swear my girls bonded like they never have before.  We came home refreshed and they came home better friends.  And that made me one happy mama.  As a friend and I were joking the other day, maybe it’s the fact that ice cream every afternoon is suddenly acceptable on vacation, but whatever the reason, it is much needed every once and a while.  Here are some of my favorite photos from our trip.

My husband and I have been to Miami before and while we loved it as a couple retreat, it was equally as awesome with our whole family this time around.  When our year-long planned trip to the Caribbean had to be cancelled due to the Zika virus, we diverted to Miami with the kids in tow and we couldn’t have been happier.  The pools, the beach, the weather, the food…it is hard not to find something for everyone.
