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.

Yesterday we went to the park in between me leaving work, getting him from the babysitter's, and me having to return to work, handing him off to another sitter. It was a crazy day! But he was such a trooper. We sat on these bleachers and had a snack while watching a big kid practice soccer with his dad. Here Wilder is practicing his kicks too! ⚽️🏃🏼 #wildercobalt Tonight was such a magical, special, classy, perfect celebration for the beloved @urbanic turning * 10 *!! I feel so beyond blessed to be a part of a place that gets to bring so much love and light into our neighborhood and beyond. #urbanicforever #andever ♡ These last couple of weeks have been really busy, and this little guy has had to be with a lot of babysitters. I've been missing him so much, and cherishing every second we've had together just the two of us. I want him to know that I'm always always thinking of him, no matter what. This kiddo is my universe. 🌏✨ #wildercobalt #19months Brunching with my boys today at @superbafoodandbread. All the YUM! 🍴✨ #wildercobalt Yesterday marked 7 years since this happened! Can't believe how many wonderful memories we have made in the last 7 years, including, but not limited to: moving to LA, living by the beach, going on lots of camping and hiking adventures, traveling to Europe a few times, having the most amazing little kiddo we could imagine, figuring out how to be parents together (daily), and so much more, of course. So thankful to have this man as my partner in life, and can't wait to see what this next year brings us! #7years Some quality family time at IKEA! 😂🚚📦 #wildercobalt #18months Today we celebrated the lovely @jilly100lc and her impending bundle of joy with the prettiest flowers, tastiest bites, the bubbliest mimosas and the craftiest project for the nursery. Such a beautiful morning! Can't wait to meet baby! #welcomebabydax This sweet little nakey babe turned 18 months today. It's insane to me that I have been a momma for A YEAR AND A HALF. What in the world...?!!! It's been a blur, but the happiest, sweetest blur I could have ever imagined. My Wilder is by far the happiest creature I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. I love you, my darling boy! #wildercobalt #18months Just exploring our new little community on foot with my almost 18 month old. (Not our house behind him...he was trying to break in.) #wildercobalt #18months Even though we are still technically in the same neighborhood, we are in a new part of the neighborhood, which means new walkable spots to visit regularly. This is for sure one of my favorites (already was, but now I can walk there in under 5 min!): @flowerboyproject! Wilder was especially fond of the truck he could see through the open back door (😂...silly boy) while I was enjoying this view right here (& sharing this delicious PB toast with him). #venice
