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.

Today Wilder and I flew home from home (to LA from Orlando). We had the best time with our family - the week went way too quickly! Can't wait to get back there at Christmas! ✈️ Cousin bath on our last night in Florida! Love seeing these sweet boys together. #wildercobalt #judeemerson Play time at Grammy's house this morning! Exhausted Wilder and super excited Forrest. Best interaction ever to exist. 👶🏼👶🏻😂 #ForrestRyder #wildercobalt We have been in Florida the last few days, but now are in Savannah, Georgia for the night! Lots of fun meeting more babies! Nighty night wild boy! ✨ #wildercobalt On Thursday this sweetie turned 8 months old. He loves crawling as fast as possible after the kitties, eating anything and everything he can get his hands on, and being tickled all over. He dislikes falling asleep most of the time (😒), though once he's asleep, he's usually good. 😉 #wildercobalt #8months My little munchkin is so into looking at (& trying to destroy) books lately. We found his current favorite (for reading and demolition attempts) at the library the other day: Solomon Crocodile by @catherine.rayner 🐊 This book is so gorgeous, has a fun to read little story, and Wilder actually LOVES having it read to him. He laughs at the same places every time, and gets SO excited when I pull it out. This talented author/illustrator is my (our) new favorite, and all her books are on our wish list! 📚👶🏼 #wildercobalt #babybooklover #littlebooksbigworld Sweet Wilder, you are 8 months old today! You are shaping up to be a determined and adventurous little fella. (Two qualities I hope you carry with you for life.) To see your eyes light up with wonder as you create your own little adventures crawling around the house is so fulfilling and exciting for me to witness. At the end of the day, I love to watch you snuggle up with your lovey, tuck your knees up underneath you, butt in the air, and fall asleep peacefully...every time I'm tempted to pick you up again and kiss you all over...but of course I don't. You are a constant joy to be around, and I am beyond excited to continue to watch you grow and learn through the years. 
I am so honored to be your momma. I have you, and you have me. Forever and ever. ♡

PS: An official 8 month photo coming soon...he's always on the move now. It's trickier to get a good snap of that sweet face! This gloomy weather is looking like fall, but feeling like Florida. However, my loving husband just reminded me that it's only 100 days till Christmas! SO EXCITED. 🎄🎅🏻🎁 Someone figured out that he can see me when he's in his stroller! When he turned around (I think looking at a bird or the sky), he did a double take when he saw me! 😍 #wildercobalt
