Thai Memories

In my room I have a piece of coral from Thailand, and yesterday I was looking at it, remembering the beach where I found it two years ago in Thailand.

As I look back on my high school years, our family vacations were some of the best days. Connecting Four was actually started on a family vacation in Malaysia (Our look book from the trip here).

I am so excited for my sisters to get back tomorrow and can’t wait for the fun times ahead–vacations are times to reconnect and invest in each other.

My piece of coral will serve a great decor accent in the new office.

In the tropics it rains a LOT, but the water droplets left behind are great inspiration.

Any fun memories from family vacations? Not-so-fun memories?

If you are in Koh Samui, Thailand, stay at Impiana. Quiet beach, rooms overlooking the water and great attendants.

This post is part of my Memories Collection-revisiting places where Connecting Four really connected and explored the world together. See my Guilin Memories post here. See my Tianjin Memories here.


Here are some photos that I found in my iphoto from random vacations we took in the past few years. It was funny how many emotions and memories went through my head when I looked through these (if you are in need of a sentimental trip to the past just pull out those photo albums and start flipping!). My first response is to cringe when I see some of these, happiness and amusement come next, then of course sadness over some (missing Michael)! I feel like everyone should take 20 minutes out of their lives to reminisce over old pictures every once in a while. Hope you enjoy… one of my personel favorites is at the bottom right taken on Michaels 18th Birthday.
