I’m looking through my past posts and realizing I haven’t really been including the single most important thing to me- my family! I’m going to try to do better about posting more family pics- although if you follow me on IG, you definitely get your fill 😉
My little girl turned FOUR in February. I can hardly believe it. Not to mention my little guy is 20 months (WHAT?!)!!!! With my first, I always wondered why moms would say “I wish time would just slow down.” I always looked forward to watching Ella hit every new milestone and loved every new stage. But now with Brooklyn? Oh my word- I totally get it!!! I don’t know if it’s because he could (potentially) be our last one, if it’s because he’s mama’s boy, or because I’m realizing that time does just need to really slow down. Either way, I’m trying to soak in every moment of life these days. “The days are long, but the years are short” is really hitting home hard and I don’t ever want to look back and wish I had done things any differently.
I took my little beauty to get her first pedicure on her birthday… we started our date at Starbucks with coffee and hot coco and ended with french fries and milk shakes from McDonalds… I’d say my she had a good day 😉
Every once in a while my hubby and I are able to escape for a few hours… & according to this pic, we sit, enjoy the silence, hot coffee, and… our phones 😉
🙂 But seriously, we (thankfully) are blessed to be surrounded by our family who offers to watch our kiddos so mommy & daddy can get away for a few days. This time we escaped to San Francisco and Monterey/Carmel. It was beautiful, relaxing, and the weather was absolutely amazing. If you ever have the chance to go to The Spanish Bay Inn in Monterey- DO IT! We drove there for the night and relaxed by the fire pits outside overlooking the ocean. Pure.bliss!
And a few more misc. pics… my new fav dessert- It’s a local place in town that just opened up.. it’s called “The Parlor”… they serve ice cream smashed right in the middle of a donut. Best.thing.ever!
