On An Adventure

"No, no! The adventures first, explanations take such a dreadful time."

      - Lewis Carroll

I absolutely love this quote because I am pretty sure that I live this every single day. Living with two little boys and one big boy (my husband Brody), this sentiment seems to permeate throughout our household on a daily. Hanes and Arrow are all about going on an adventures, and the "explanation" for them is doing anything but going on one. So homework, chores, putting their toys away, taking a bath, and eating all seem to fall in the "not an adventure category." So, as you can imagine, getting them to do any of the activities mentioned above can sometimes be slightly difficult. I used to struggle with this and get frustrated, and at times I still do, but you know what? Not so much anymore. After hearing Arrow tell of his (mostly make-believe) adventures with his older brother Hanes each night before bed, I started thinking to myself....how amazing are my kids and how amazing is their love for experiencing life. So, adventures, whether they be big or small, whether it be traveling afar or simply taking a drive to a local new place they have never been, you can bet that going on adventures has become a big part of our life. And you know what? The adventures are fantastic.

On this particular day, we decided our adventure would be to take a drive in the cruiser (Brod's old school Toyota FJ60 Landcruiser) to somewhere new. Such a simple act really, to get in the car and take a drive, but you know what, the boys loved it, and to them and to Brod and I, it was an "adventure." We got dressed for the drive, the boys and Brody in their sweatshirts and sweatpants, casual but in a cool way. The boys were in dressed and ready in their Young Versace apparel, Hanes looking so sharp and comfy in the Medusa hoodie and sweatpants, and Arrow sporting his sweatsuit look as well. I love the Young Versace vibe, that of sort of an old-school Italian glamor mixed with a playful spirit. Both Hanes and Arrow looked effortlessly cool and casual as they rocked their sweatpants and sweatshirt looks for this particular adventure. I found both of their looks on Farfetch, and could not have been more pleased with how they turned out. It's crazy how much my boys love to wear sweatpants, sweatshirts, and hoodies... I swear they don't even know other types of clothing exists. Thanks to brands like Young Versace, I am ok with it though. They can wear sweats and be comfortable and yet still look smart, sharp, and classy. The adventure had this day was simple, we laughed, we took turns "driving," we got out and explored the causeway, we put up the seats and told stories in the back of the car, and we spent time together. And it was beautiful. And you know what, I am starting to better understand more and more the saying by Lewis Carroll from above...life is short, adventures come first.

Thank you to Farfetch for sponsoring this post.

  5. This is not just the ordinary reviews about spell casters that floods the web everyday, mine is written out of a personal experience & observation. I count it a privilege to judiciously use this life time opportunity given to me by a genius (Dr. Wakina) that possess a high level of spiritual potential to make infeasible feasible.
    Idk if it is right to call him an angel because he is exceptional in incomparable for making life, finance, breakup and divorce easier to resolve with a perfect and lasting solution.
    After the experience & observation I obtained within 7 years my Husband left me, I decided to settle comfortable with the benefit of appreciating Dr. Wakina for doing what 11 persons cannot do. The difference was clear from the moment I sent “can you help me get back my husband?” to his email: (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com).
    I am happy for not being the depressed & lost woman I used to be before I met a great healer. Words cannot express my appreciation to Dr. Wakina Love Temple.
