Summer bliss.

I'll be the first to admit, it drives me bonkers when people post a zillion photos of their amazing vacation life while I'm sitting at home, having not showered, and hearing alternating bits of Spongebob and my kids arguing in the background. 

I realize it's not the offending poster's fault I'm having a "lazy day" when they post their fabulousness. And I certainly do not begrudge anyone an amazing life or vacation. Truly. 

But sometimes enough is just enough.


But try as I may, I cannot conceive a snarky, witty, or self-deprecating way to portray our summer vacation. I've tried to find an angle. 

A way to . . .  not appear so overtly braggadocios. 

A way to . . . make it appear less than picture-perfect. 

Because, I assure you my life is not generally picture-perfect. 

In fact I hear Spongebob right now. And puh-lease don't get me started on my bathroom remodel.

But, for a couple blissful weeks in June it was . . . nothing less than picture-perfect. 

This view ensured I woke up every day on the right side of the bed. 

Eating dinner on the water's edge and watching the sun set wasn't bad either.

Spending day after day lolling around gorgeous beaches didn't kill me.

Snorkeling our way around Kauai was hardly horrible.

Spotting a few sea turtles and hundreds of humuhumunukunuku─üpua╩╗a did not ruin anyone's day.

Watching our duo surf Hanalei Bay certainly didn't stink. 

Jumping into Queen's Bath was not at all taxing {yes, I did it too}. 

Watching Little Miss Thang do cartwheels on the beach while the sun dipped below the horizon wasn't too annoying {if you don't mind sand in your face, that is}.

Enjoying "take-out" at "home" a couple nights a week was more than just economical; it was absolutely delicious! 

Spending two weeks in paradise with the three people I love most in this world certainly didn't make me want to come home!!!

So, where did you find your picture-perfect this summer?  There's still time!
