modernmaven There are certain people in this world who have the amazing gift of encouragement...who's heart is so true and beautiful and knows just when others need that extra little lift. @jessjudkins has this gift and I am so grateful to call her a friend. Thank you for our sweet package, it was much needed this morning and my tea cup is feeling very snazzy in her new rainbow cozy, here in the rainbow state!
Remember to #encourageitforward friends...you never know how your gestures can turn someone's day around.

modernmaven Living in a condo on a golf course is interesting....there's a beautiful view and the grass is always well manicured. However, that manicuring begins at 5am right outside our window . After 630 each night, when it closes, we can go out on it and play and run like crazy. But in the meantime, there's no real yard or outdoor spot to play in (which is really hard for both C and me and a big change from our home in Colorado) But, we just recently found a nice little slice of grass in between the condos to hang out, blow bubbles and have snacks... and hopefully not get tagged by a rogue golf ball. #grayhawaiilife 3d
  •   modernmaven I hope so! Thanks Stacey @cottage_industry 3d
  •   modernmaven So true! xoxo @calikatrina 3d
  •   freebirdcollection So cute!!! 3d
  •   wearetherogers I totally get those feelings! I feel like you're having the same experience we did-the fun and excitement of a beautiful, new place (hello, its Hawaii!!) but mixed with yearning for the familiar. And we had the small condo, no yard, on the golf course too. Don't be hard on yourself if you feel like your not appreciating every single moment of it. Its normal, you're human! :) Also, camping at Volcano National Park and having a fire on a chilly night was a little slice of heaven for this East Coast girl :) 3d
  •   miss_jamiemarie Lovely spot! Lovely girls! 3d
  •   calli.sweetpeasgarden I love your shoes! Glad you girls found a spot. :) 3d
  •   shopmoonandwanderlust We moved from a house with a huge yard to an apartment and it's been very interesting trying to find a green space for my daughter to run around in without having to drive to the park. I totally get you!! 2d
  •   collecting_memories Too cute! 19h

modernmaven If you would have told me just 1 year ago that we would be on this adventure...I am not certain I would have believed you. It's been such a roller coaster of release, dedication, fear, laughter, amazement, tears, hugs, worry, thankfulness....sometimes all in one day! But today, I am most thankful. #grayhawaiilife 6d
  •   collecting_memories Isn't it amazing how much can change in such a short amount of time?! This is precious 6d
  •   deewags 5d
  •   modernmaven Thank you Courtney! This is all so new to both Luc and I who grew up in the same places our whole lives. We struggle with the balance of wanting adventure but also lack of family or familiarity around us. Thank you for your comment on this ... It makes me breath easier @courtneysnowden 5d
  •   theretromama Love those moments! We too have moved from Colorado. And there are days I wished we were back there but new is good, it keeps you moving forward. 5d
  •   modernmaven I seriously cannot believe it. So much has happened in our little world in just the last 6 months. It's crazy! @collecting_memories 5d
  •   modernmaven So very true @theretromama !! I go back and forth between craving for things to be exactly like they were a few months ago to feeling so much excitement for what is to come! 5d
  •   jessjudkins Mailed you both a package today ️ you should get it on Saturday 5d
  •   casadecupcake Love you, friend. 4d

modernmaven This girl...my happy beach bunny #grayhawaiilife 1w

modernmaven Truth: I am a little afraid to swim in the ocean...knee deep I am fine and I am in love with sitting on the beach, taking in the ocean air and each wave. I adore being out there on just about any kind of boat and someday I hope to be brave enough to paddle board. BUT, getting in for an actual swim gives me a case of the jitters. I am so proud of my sweet girl for getting right out there with her daddy, giggling with so much happiness and being pleased as punch with herself as she runs back onto land. #grayhawaiilife 1w
  •   elizak78 Me too mama. Deep waters I can't see terrify me especially the ocean! But both my babies love to swim whenever wherever so I'm happy to stand along the shore watching and waving! Thinking my son may enjoy scooba diving one day 7d
  •   thekaleidoscopeca I am both fascinated and terrified. It's the fishbowl theory, the bigger the bowl, the bigger the fish...so the ocean... 6d
  •   modernmaven That's exactly how I feel !! @thekaleidoscopeca 6d
  •   modernmaven Thank you Stacie!! I never want my fears to resonate in her so I am thrilled that she already has such a love for it @stacimagnolia 6d
  •   collecting_memories I'm not a fan either lol!! 6d
  •   casadecupcake When I come, we'll have to go together! 4d
  •   modernmaven I sure wish I was but darn it, I just shiver with the thought of getting out too far! @collecting_memories 4d
