One Day: Take the Blur Out of Your Amazing Life

Thank you to our sponsor:
one day
The kids and I are in Rhode Island spending time with my family, getting our beach fix, and stuffing ourselves with lobster rolls. It’s a good Summer filled with perfect days that are already starting to blend together. Hilarious tiny moments quickly fading in my mom brain into another blurry, yet totally awesome, vacation. As I was telling a funny story to Rick on the phone last night, about something Quinn had said on the beach, I had a sudden urge to document it as a perfect 5 year old moment.

Basically Quinn and I were sitting on the beach looking up at the perfectly weathered beach-front houses, a favorite past-time of mine in fact, and she said Mom, look at those houses right on the beach. I asked her if she too thought it would be awesome to have a house right on the beach and she said, “Well, I’m very excited to go visit my cousin Juliette and if I had a beach house like that, I’m afraid I might forget how excited I am to visit her.”

It was such an honest and wise statement from the heart which I knew I would inevitably forget over time.

While I’m a professional blogger, I don’t blog about my family much, and while I love crafting, I’m not into scrapbooking or keeping a journal so lots of these little memories get lost. Coincidentally, we had just been asked to try out a website called Honestly, it seemed like a lot of work, creating family trees, uploading photos, creating timelines, time capsules and vaults. Phew, it appeared to be for moms much more super than me. But since I had some fresh sweet memories that I wanted to save, I gave it a go.

A Norway Itinerary for Families – Part 1: Oslo and Akershus

Oslo Pretty Prudent
If you follow me on instagram (@prudentjaime), you saw Carleton, Scarlet, and I on our most recent adventure, touring the stunning country of Norway. Our itinerary took us across the lush, green springtime hills, up snowy mountain peaks, and deep into blue fjords.

I now understand why the vikings believed in Valhalla.

With a perfect itinerary mapped out by Visit Norway, we traveled by air, train, boat, and even funicular to learn just what Norway was all about. Bonus, our six-year-old daughter saw the real live inspiration behind her favorite film, Frozen.

The Prudent families are hitting the road this week for some summer vacation fun in the sun! While Jaime’s driving up north, I’ll be heading with the kids back to my hometown, Rhode Island. Don’t worry though, we will be back next week with a whole lot of new projects to share.
