This post was originally going up on Friday, but life happens! I have a few cool products that I’ve come to love enough to share them with you.
Who knew there was such a beautiful getaway island that you could visit with your family in Ventura, California?!?!! Check out IslandPackers.com they have a spacious vessel that is exclusively permitted (by the Coast Guard) to take passengers to Channel Islands National Park. Let’s take a hike!
Now I’m not saying blast your last dollar to enjoy day, but that’s basically what I do when I set our local family travel budget. We’re a family of 4, shit gets expensive real quick. Let me share some of my stress less + adventure tips as we stop to visit the Aquarium of the Pacific.
I’ll admit that I lose track of my goals, priorities and life in general – wayyyy too easily. With our typical family stuff, I forget to really sit back and enjoy the little things. Like -going to our favorite little ranch (Copper Horse Riding Ranch) for lessons and letting the boys run around feeding and petting the farm animals.
There are times when I get home and instantly dread making dinner, cleaning up toys, entertaining my boys (and the dogs), simply –
ADULTING! That’s when we pick up a quick subway and head straight to our local Bridgeport pond and feed the ducks.
There’s been many days when I feel overwhelmed with keeping my house tidy, clean and organized. The truth of it, I’m not tidy, clean or perfectly organized. I’m a working mom with two boys under the age of 4 years old and a husband who loves to ride his motorcycle and enjoys playing guitar. In the past, I would come home from work and feel so damn annoyed when I saw toys in the living room, a messy countertop and simply…a chaotic house. I wasn’t enjoying the simple things. Lately, I’ve said…Fuck it!
With that type of attitude, I’ve become happier!
