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.

End of the day playtime outside. It was so gorgeous today! ☀️ #wildercobalt It was a good mail day today! A sweet 6 month gift for Wilder (♡ @kisforkara), a thoughtful thank you card from a dear friend (♡ @narine__), & a super special note from a fellow mama (♡ @goldpresspaper)! Feeling loved! ⇢ Make sure you check out @goldpresspaper's new online shop and send this original Mama Bear card to a mama friend to make her day! (& to support this wonderful local stationer!) ✉ My big 6 month old is so good at playing on his own these days. Of course I still love playing with this cutie, but I sure do like that I can get a few things done around the house in between our exhilarating rounds of peek-a-boo! Being this boy's mom is the best. #wildercobalt Okay, Wilder, we get it. You are really strong, and can do push-ups all day on your toes, without even breaking a sweat. I'm really PROUD of you, my sweet boy! 💪🏻👶🏼
[Our official 6 month photoshoot was pushed a week due to the rain! So, I snapped this today as a place holder!]
#wildercobalt #birthfitbaby #proudmomma Today this little sweetie is 6 months old! I cannot believe my darling boy is 1/2 a year old already, not to mention that I've been a momma for that long! Wilder is my everything, and every day I realize more and more how lucky I am that he's mine. We are having official 6 month photos taken of him tomorrow, so will wait to post that when we get them back. We also got the approval from the pediatrician today to start solids! Here we go! 🍌🍐🍊🍎🍇🍴 | #wildercobalt "There's no better way to spend the 4th of July than to watch the sun set over Canada!" - @janellereid 🇺🇸/🇨🇦 Today we went to a really beautiful lavender farm here in Friday Harbor. Happy 4th of July! 🇺🇸 My 2 guys on the ferry out to San Juan Island. It's so stunningly beautiful here - Wilder was not impressed and decided sleeping was better. 😴🚢 #wildercobalt We are trying to forget that we had a travel day from hell yesterday (that is trying to bleed into today), and just enjoy being with our family on vacation in beautiful Friday Harbor. These two sweet cousins are together again and they just get cuter & cuter together! #wildercobalt #judeemerson Kicking off our vacation with a 5 hour flight delay out of LAX, so we went and got some tasty breakfast at our new favorite diner, Pann's! We learned today that our favorite server from our favorite Marina Del Rey spot works there now! 🍳✈️
