Kelly Clarkson just shared some family photos from vacation, and they will make your heart melt.

Kelly and her husband, Brandon Blackstock, are currently on vacation in Colorado with their two youngest kids, River Rose and Remy.

The views at their vacation home are breathtaking — seriously, they don’t even look real — which is why Kelly felt the need to share photos on Twitter.

“This is literally the view from my bedroom where we are staying on vacation,” she captioned the first photo. “So…. basically this is where I have decided I want to live forever.”

She followed up with another photo of her and Brandon kissing in front of the view (magical), plus a photo of the whole family being adorable.

It looks like a magical vacation, and Kelly definitely needed this time away from the madness of her work life. As she explained: “We need moments of stillness to enjoy the chaos.”

Totally agree. Kelly, will you adopt me?

When Kelly Clarkson isn’t working hard on the set of The Voice/preparing for her upcoming talk show/busy with one of her other million pursuits, she’s a dedicated family woman.

She and her hubby Brandon Blackstock have two kids together, River Rose, 5, and Remy, 3. Kelly’s also a stepmom to Brandon’s two older children.

The finale of The Voice aired in May, and Kelly went on a much-needed vacation shortly afterward. She went with Brandon and their two youngest kids.

And Kelly being Kelly, she’s been sharing plenty of adorable footage from the vacation with fans on social media.

First, she posted a photo of their temporary digs: a beautiful countryside home in Colorado with an unbelievable view of the mountains.

Kelly doesn’t really want to leave, and can you blame her???

“This is literally the view from my bedroom where we are staying on vacation. So…. basically this is where I have decided I want to live forever,” she wrote on Twitter.

Next, Kelly shared a photo of her and Brandon sharing a kiss with the view in the background.

“Up in the mountains with the family,” she wrote. “Grabbin’ a kiss from my baby.”

Kelly also shared a couple of photos of the kids. River Rose posed for a photo with one of her dolls.

And the entire crew of four posed for a photo in front of yet aother breathtaking view.

It’s pretty chilly up there, as you can tell by the small snowball in Kelly’s hand.

“Snowball fights in June,” she wrote. “I love Colorado!”

Man, suddenly I’ve lost control of my hands, and they are looking up flights to Colorado? Kelly, what have you done???


Sigh. Clearly, I’m not the only one. Fans are definitely vying to get an invite to Kelly’s next family vacation.

They’re also in love with how cute these family photos are.

Kelly has remained active on social media despite being on vacation, and she tweeted about how excited she is to be on The Voice with Gwen Stefani next season.

The show recently announced that Gwen would replace Adam Levine in season 17. Gwen has coached on The Voice before, but she’s never coached alongside Kelly.

Kelly wrote that she’s been a fan of Gwen’s since “Trapped in a Box,” a 1992 song by No Doubt.

“Move over @blakeshelton I’m fan crushin’ on your girl this season!” she wrote.

Kelly’s other current co-coach, John Legend, is also returning next season.

Gwen previously expressed excitement about returning to the show and working alongside her boo Blake.

The new season airs in September. After this restorative vacation, Kelly will certainly be ready to show out!
