The perfect weekend.

Derek and I went to Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs for the weekend to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary.  Derek had been working like crazy for the last few weeks, so a relaxing weekend was exactly what he (we) needed, and it was so great to enjoy it together.  We laid by the pool for most of the time, but we also treated ourselves to a suuuper relaxing couples massage…oh man was that ever amazing.  We will definitely be back to Ace – it was very much our style.  Everything’s decorated with a vintage, hand-picked flare, and nothing is without character.  Mmm.mmm.mmm.  Love it.

Also, we started a new tradition!  Since not only did Derek propose to me with photobooth strips, but we also had a photobooth at our wedding, we are going to take a photos in a photobooth each year on our anniversary!  Lucky for us, the Ace Hotel has an old black and white photobooth in their lobby.  Meant to be.

I’m pretty sure I’m more in love with Derek now than I ever have been before.  He’s the best I could ask for.

Glitter is a huge part of my life right now, and I am totally okay with it. ✨ Today we did maternity photos with the lovely and ever talented @jadebrookbank [the letter b photography]! This is the first little taste I've seen so far, and my goodness I couldn't be happier! So excited to see the rest. #30weeks Well guys, remember my long mermaid hair? I had it chopped right off today! 💇 Thankful everyday for this man. ♡ Today we did some light adventuring. #29weeks For all of you wanting a bump pic...this is 29 weeks, y'all! #11togo #urbanicholiday The #UrbanicHoliday Social was such a fun kick-off to my favorite season! @snowandgraham came up with the cutest craft, and curated the most festive decor, as always. Oh, and she of course also gave me some excellent baby name suggestions. (I'll be waiting on the rest of that list, Ebony!) ♡ 🍁We had a lovely Thanksgiving meal today, and were blessed to spend it with family. A lot to be thankful for! 🍂 Went from wearing a down jacket in Boston yesterday to a t-shirt on the beach this morning, back in Venice. It's a beautiful 75 degree morning here! Hello, 3rd trimester! Spent the afternoon welcoming the last 13 weeks at the Boston Aquarium. 🐟🐠🐙
