Charmingly beautiful children, casually coordinated outfits, suntans to die for, smiles so wide you can’t help but chuckle as you gaze at this picturesque study of late summer perfection.
IT 👏🏼 IS 👏🏼 A 👏🏼 DREAM 👏🏼 Right?
Let’s do a little BTP. A Behind The Photo, if you will.
That beautiful day - I mean, look at the tail end of that sunset - was by far the most tense one of our entire Israel trip. I had overscheduled our itinerary and was frustrated beyond belief that we weren’t making it to each location on time. The kids were being kids and wanting to run around and explore and EAT (how annoying) and not particularly caring that my precious SCHEDULE was being torn to shreds in the hot Middle Eastern wind as we raced against time.
The sun was not on our side.
Time was NOT standing still.
Neither was anyone else.
NOBODY was feeling my stress, which in turn made me even more stressed.
I wish I could say that I look at this photo and it all melts away. That sure would make for a poetic ending, right?
But it doesn’t: it brings me back to that tense feeling.
I enjoy the sheer beauty of my kids, hello. I do have eyes.
What I learned from that day was simply to not overschedule an itinerary when traveling and particularly with children. I learned that I don’t HAVE to tick off every box when visiting someplace, even if I desperately want to. Sometimes I’ll have to choose (even if I don’t want to) and I’ll have to be okay with that. I learned that not all memories are warm and fuzzy ones, but those are important too because they remind me of what I won’t forget.
Your girl doesn’t make the same mistake twice.
I’ll make a fresh new one instead 😉
