I have been blogging on another site, where I have been trying to do posts of a holiday we had two and a half years ago. We were living in England at the time, and got a good last minute deal on a two week Mediterranean cruise. I have been wanting to document this for the boys, as they were only 3 and 6 years old when we went on it, and I would like to help them have as much of a memory of it as possible.
This is one of the pictures that I just came across, that I am fairly sure my husband took, probably of a sunrise. Not enhancement of colours, no filters, this is pure.
This is the stuff dreams are made of.
I sometimes, during the drudgery of day to day life, look at other families and feel like I should be 'keeping up with the Jones', ie, that we should have bought a house by now.
But when I look at pictures like this, I realise that we have just made different decisions.
Our journey has been a scenic and winding one.
I don't regret any of it. I feel privileged to have had so many choices and opportunities, and for us to have chosen to take the path less travelled.
I hope that I manage to live the rest of my life like this.
What about you?
What are some of the really special memories you have?
What are some of the things you have done that have made no financial sense, but you wouldn't trade for anything?
