Have you gone on an adventure with your kids today? What about this week? Or this month?
Minimalism has given my family the opportunity to prioritize getting to know our children’s hearts and desires while helping them experience seeing the world.
Our family adventure started 10+ years ago when my husband and I said ‘I do’ in a Mexican hallway.
That’s right, I said hallway. See, even though I planned the perfect beach wedding, there was an uninvited guest.
Hurricane Ida joined us for our wedding. She moved our festivities from where our toes were supposed to be planted firmly in the sand, to a hallway. (I may have asked my Dad if he needed to stop at the ATM as he walked me down the aisle.)
Spoiler alert: There is nothing I would have wanted more in a wedding.
The hallway was a humerus representation of our life. And if rain on your wedding day is good luck, we are set.
One thing I love about my relationship with Elliot is that he has always expressed a desire to adventure. He loves to travel. He loves to explore. And he wants to give our family the gift of experiences as a family.
Minimalism has allowed us to spend our time going on adventures both big and small as a family. And for that I am so thankful.
In the last several years I have spent time talking about free, cheap, and fabulous things to do with children on Instagram, and the push has been to start sharing that here with you as well.
So, come along! Let’s ADVENTURE!
