"What a difference a year makes."

Rory Feek is continuing to focus on the good times with his family in a new Facebook post recalling a “magical” trip to Hawaii last year.

In a beautiful video, resurfaced from a blog post from last March, Feek on Tuesday shared some special moments from the two weeks he spent in Oahu and the Big Island with his wife Joey and daughters Heidi, Hopie and Indiana for his 50th birthday.

"It was our favorite vacation we've ever taken," wrote Rory.

"Most of the trips that we call family vacations, are actually places where we're playing a show and try to fit in a few days of being tourists around it. ... This one was different. There was no music, no plan, no rush … just us all being together as a family. I loved it."

Traveling is not a part of the family's schedule now, but clearly they have a lot of great memories to carry them through these current difficult days.
