Paradise






Yesterday was one of those "holy crap batman, I'm an adult" days. 
Discussing the future. Being responsible. Watering plants.
Words like "mortgage" and "401k" drifted through the air. 

I mean, "401k" might as well be a word. 
Of which, I have no clue its origin, definition, or spelling.
Probably never will.
 I'm no Mensa member, 
but I did win my 3rd grade spelling bee with the word "jalapeno."
that's gotta count for something, right? 

...


So, what's a young at heart girl {ahem. woman} to do? 

Why, 

dream of faraway tropical islands, 
selling seashells down by the seashore-raising our merbabies-and eating lovely bunches of coconuts-with nary so much as an electric bill in sight, 

of course. 



Or a three day weekend. 
that'll do.

xoxo

I'm having a lot of those "grown up" days and conversations lately. It's really scary and I try to forget about them as soon as the matter is settled ^^
Dreaming of paradise is probably the best way to handle it.

Love the pictures. You two look so happy :)

Brooke said...

LOVE those pictures. Seriously. And who cares about being a responsible adult anyway, right?!

Valerie Griffin said...

Ashley said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! So happy to find yours! I'm leave on vacation tomorrow (!) and your beautiful pictures are making me even more excited to leave!

I would very much love to go to paradise this weekend. That would be so lovely. And sigh, I'm past the point of talking about mortgages and 401k's and am smack dab in the middle of them, neck deep. And I still can't believe it's my life. Haha. Have a good one!

I frequently say: "I'm not so sure I like being a real person"...that is, 'real person' being my description for adult. All of these bills, 401k's, setting up life again in a new city...it's all so adult, sigh. When did I change gears? I want to go back to the days where my biggest worry was my outfit for tomorrow and if that cute boy I have a crush on will write me a note back by lunch time.

Ash said...

oh i LOVE that first picture...

but, admittedly, HATE all these "grown up" things that must happen.. now that i'm "grown up"

Ashton said...

This made me smile. Being responsible calls for a trip every once and awhile! Love the pictures! :)

Amy Shaughnessy said...

So funny! You made me laugh. I totally get what you mean. I am a parent to 2 little boys and sometimes I can't believe that I'm old enough to be married and have kids! One day I will look back and wonder where all the time went. But yes, I want to go to a tropical island somewhere and just relax for a week or two. Or three. I'm not picky...

I know!! I still don't feel like an adult!

Kira said...

I don't think I will ever actually feel like a grown up.

Shaylynn... I blahwg It's True. said...

These photos, well.. they gave me a heart attack.

I feel like I need to be there.

I feel like I would let you adopt me, should you ever decide to raise babies there.

Okay.

Remember me when you make this decision.

Being an adult is SO hard sometimes. I hate that responsibilities come first! Thank goodness we can take vacations and have the best memories from vacations when we need a break from adulthood :)

Sara B said...

Those pictures are gorgeous! And I also really have no idea what a 401k is. I hope I marry someone who does.

Cindy and Jordan said...

Alex said...

A long weekend is the perfect antidote to too much grownup talk. I hope it's marvelous, love!

Jessica Holly said...

don't you love those kinds of days (*not)?

Grace said...

My whole family is made up of financial advisors and in our family, 401k is definitely a word! Who wants to be an adult anyhow?
