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.

& a Happy Father’s Day to my own dear ‘ole dad, who is such a loving papa to his clan of grandsons. I’m so thankful I have such a great dad. Love you @johnhenrygates! #wildercobalt
Happy Father’s Day to my wonderful husband @_derekhansen. The day you became a dad, the world changed. The look on your face said it all — a proud papa from the first second this adventure began. Can’t believe we only have 18 weeks till we are doing this again! ♥️ #wildercobalt
As always, New York was magical and beautiful and so full of life. Not to mention, we couldn’t have asked for better weather (or company!). Bye, New York! Love you! ♥️
Last day of #nss2018! I’ll be sad to leave this beautiful city tonight, but I’m so thankful for all the fun we’ve had! It went too quick. 💌
🎈Happy happy birthday to my wonderful husband! 🎈 I’m on the opposite coast from you at the moment, but I sure do hope that you’re being shown the deepest love from the family you’re with. Love you, @_derekhansen!! ♥️ . . #wildercobalt
Good morning NYC! ☀️ I walked over to this sweet establishment for a quick bite en route to the train! 🚊 It’s a little muggy and rainy and perfect. Magical in any weather.
We made it to New York! The bump and I nearly puked in the hour cab ride from JFK...but we made it. 😅 And we are living the high life in our gorg #airbnb on the Lower East Side. 🙌🏻 NEW YORK, I LOVE YOU! 🚕🍎🏙
Today I felt so blessed celebrating Mother’s Day with my little family. Wilder is an amazing, kind, unbelievably caring, joyful child, that I cannot even begin to believe is one I get to call mine. My husband is thoughtful and generous (& so much more), and to be showered with love and appreciation by him and Wilder was just what I needed today. Which is why I am more than thrilled to say that Wilder will be a *big brother* come October, and we will officially become a family of 4! We are excited for what this next chapter holds for us. ♥️ #wildercobalt
A beautiful & fun * but CRAZY windy * day in Morro Bay watching the kites! Boy are we all exhausted after the 22 MPH winds all afternoon! #wildercobalt
Just watching their dads play softball from the best seat in the house. 💙💗
