I’m back. ūüôā Hawaii was wonderful.¬† I am unable to post a slideshow from flickr (if someone knows how to in wordpress, please let me know) but I am able to link them.¬† Here is the slideshow from Kauai: Click here ¬† and from Maui: Click here ¬† We were able to see some beautiful sunsets in Maui and the whole time we were there the weather was perfect. Mr. Charming and I didn’t want to leave and can’t wait to get back. It was one of those vacations you don’t realized how much you needed until you are there.

I’ll be posting more often now that things have slowed down. My next update will be about another Guide Dog puppy we had (Loyola).

Well ya’ll I was going to post an update, but I’m headed to Hawaii tomorrow for 2 weeks (Kauai for a week then over to Maui for a week).¬† I have been so unbelievably busy this vacation is much needed.¬† We have been gone/busy every weekend since the beginning of August.¬† I’m tired just thinking about it.¬†

Anyways, I’ll be back in 2 weeks. ūüôā

Life Stages

Awkward: That pretty much explains my current life stage.¬† I feel like I have been reflecting on it WAY too much lately and am finding myself in a rut because of it.¬† I’m 25, married,¬†with no kids who loves to sleep.¬† Mr. Charming and I one day will love to have a family, but¬†when we got married,¬†wanted to¬†travel and just spend time together before having kids.¬† His whole 2 years of traveling kind of threw a¬†wrench in the last part of the previous sentence.¬† We have had the chance to travel to Europe¬†and FINALLY booked our vacation to Kauai and Maui for the end of this year.¬† Before we have kids, I have my list of places I want to go because my philosophy is you never know when you might get back¬†(if ever).¬† Here is my list (random tanget I know) in no particular order: San¬†Francisco (Mainly to see Alcatraz), Phoenix (Grand Canyon), Caribbean Cruise/Disneyworld, Europe again (Back to Germany & Italy), and Maui (which is soon to be crossed off).¬† Anyways,¬†back to the topic.

I would say that 98%¬†of my friends have kids.¬† It’s like being 25 and having no kids is something not typical.¬† I feel like I don’t relate to them because mainly what they talk about is their kids.¬† Granted¬†it’s not like I have a lot to talk about so talking about their kids doesn’t bug me.¬† Just being at a different life stage is akward.¬†

Maybe I should start popping out kids to fit in….Just Kidding. ūüôā
