Yes!  I am here.  I fell off the blogging band wagon for a bit, but I did not quit my goal of taking a picture everyday. 

I took a little vacay with my hubby.  I have been home about 10 days, and I still haven’t recovered.  Reality hit me smack dab in the face early on my first morning back, and that first morning at 7am, it felt like 4am(that was Hawaii time, which I had adjusted to), and that was after a red-eye flight home.

So… lets just say I need a nap.

I do want to share what I have been up to. 

I also have one confession.  My goal was to take pictures with my big girl camera each day.  I must tell you the honest truth that I just couldn’t do it while I was on vacation.  I took my big camera to Hawaii, but it was so hard to lug it around.  I was also so worried it would get stolen. 

I am satisfied with my efforts, because I did take a picture every day.  It just happened to be with my Iphone while I was in Hawaii. 

I think I made up for it tho, because some days I took 2 pics.

So… lets begin with where I left off:

Skiing with the family.  I enjoyed watching them all hit the slopes, and it’s so fun to capture those moments too.  I love this picture.  It shows Jonathan doing something he loves, and a peak of me doing what I love too.

Jex is learning this Hymn.  Seeing it open on our piano was a great Sunday reminder.  I need to make more time for a “Sweet Hour of Prayer.”

I decided to put out all my Valentine decor before I went to Hawaii.  I thought the kids would enjoy seeing all the hearts as a reminder of how much I love them.  It was a good reminder for them while I was gone.

On the plane.

I spy an island in the ocean. I’m looking forward to landing there and laying on the beach.  I had fun taking pictures out the window with my big girl camera.  This is one of the few shots I got with my good camera.  I decided to add a texture to it; just for fun.  I’m looking forward to landing there and laying on the beach.

After landing we went to our hotel to check out the view, another pic I took with my big girl camera.

I went on a run this morning.  Luckily I had my phone with me and I could take a pic of this pretty flower.  I was smiling during my entire run.  It’s way more fun to run in such a beautiful place.

We stopped at the sweetest mom and pop joint, and had the best French toast.  It was made out of sweet Hawaiian bread.


The owner told us about this cool spot we needed to check out.  We made the little journey, and scored when we found this tree.

We spent most of the day lying on the beach today.  This was my view.  A sweet dad and his children built this little sand town for us to see.

It was so nice to just chill and relax with the man I love.

We made sure we went to Kona to check out the LDS temple.  It was beautiful.  I loved seeing it all lit up at night.  Even though we didn’t get a chance to make it inside, you could still feel the spirit.  Thanks to my Iphone, I got a panoramic pic.

Our last day in Hawaii and definitely my favorite day.  We went on the most beautiful hike.  We went through bamboo, a ginger forest, and the most amazing cliffs on one side of us.

We headed back to the airport to welcome my nephew Elder Argyle home from his two year mission for our church.  He served in Eugene, Oregon.(also taken with my Iphone because I forgot my camera.  I was so tired, I couldn’t think.

Jealous of your trip! Looks like it was a great time!

I really do love your blog and I get a lot of ideas from your cute decor. I hope this doesn't come across harsh (and feel free to delete, I would send you a private message if I could), but it's a little worrisome to see you home address. You have such a beautiful family and I would hate for a simple picture to lead to anything negative.
