life is full of adventures...

...and if it's not, create one! so, we are in the beginning stages of planning a three-month stay in hawaii. yes, we are so excited. we've never been there and can't wait to do tons of hiking, exploring, and see many new things, like volcanoes! we will be staying on the big might be difficult to be away from home for an extended period, but as long as we're all together, we'll have a blast and it will feel like home. i think it will be a fun and fabulous experience for us. we want to travel with the kids, see things, and experience different places. we don't want to wait to get started on our adventures!

what will the future hold...?

who knows?! and this is really starting to excite me! my husband and i love our home, our little family, and where we live...but we also want to experience other cultures and see the world. he is not happy with his job and is honestly bored of it. same thing, everyday, sitting at a desk...and i'm at home with the kids. we want to be together! spend time together, do things together, work together, whatever! well, we decided that things aren't just going to change on their own...we have to make a we are planning an adventure! lol! in the near future we will set out on a three month "journey." we are still narrowing down the exact details but are considering a cross country trip to alaska or spending a few months living in another place. perhaps bali or hawaii...we are so excited and i think it will be a great experience! we will still have our home to come back to, but i think we might enjoy this and will find more time for long-term travel in the future! hopefully for a month each year!? hehe. everyone we have told about this, so far, has the same reaction, "what about valon's job?" we're not that concerned. yes, valon has a "good" job where he makes good money. but honestly, we have realized that we are after something else in life. we would rather have time together and we'll figure out work when we return from our trip! perhaps we can work primarily on the internet, so it's portable! lol! there will always be money...there won't always be time. we want to do this now, while our children are young and we can enjoy time with them! if we can afford this trip now, and our lifestyle allows for it, why wait?! i'm sure this topic will be coming up again and again! lol!!!
