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.

Back at @Disneyland today, and Wilder went on tea cups for the first time. Not into it. Really sorry I tried to take you on this super fun ride. #wildercobalt #missedhisnap #happiestplaceonearth #assholeparents So thankful for this little bug. Always. ❤️✨
#wildercobalt We had a lovely day (despite the rain!) kicking off the holiday season with a little @urbanic pop-up gift wrap station at #therowdtla 🌲#urbaniclove I can't believe that this was nearly a year ago...which means my sweet little babe is going to be 2 years old so soon! • Motherhood is the best and most difficult challenge I've ever taken on - in every way. My love for this little heart and soul is beyond what I thought possible; I'm blessed beyond measure to be this boy's momma. #wildercobalt Taking a little bit of me-time at nap time. Mom-life is tougher (& even better) than it looks...I'm just feeling emotionally exhausted these days. His day was made when the first thing that happened at the grocery store is a lady gave him >>>🎈🎈🎈<<< !!! JACKPOT! #wildercobalt #21months Got all gussied up for a 1st birthday brunch for our sweet friend. Wilder had about 25 waffles, played on the dreamiest swing, and attempted to drink my mimosa all morning, all while chasing around the big kids at the party. I'd say that's a good morning! #wildercobalt This dreamy little hunk is mine! 😍 #wildercobalt #21months My little bruiser at the pumpkin patch yesterday. ✨🎃🍂 #wildercobalt Took Wilder to the park today after work/babysitter. He's been pretty grumpy due to his black eye (see IG story...I think it's still there?), and ended up having a super fun time. Sunset park times are my favorite with him these days! #wildercobalt
