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.

"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! 🍳✈️ Happy 1st Father's Day to my wonderful husband, @_derekhansen. I am so thankful our boy will grow up with such a loving, fun and adventurous dad. We love you! | #wildercobalt #1stfathersday | PS>> His Father's Day gift was that Wilder tattoo! It's official now! 😉 These two...I can't even handle it. Wilder was giggling and flirting, and Ellie was playing along too. Just so sweet. Wilder is 5 months old today! I can't believe I've already been this sweet little boy's momma for that long. This kid loves carrying on deep conversations with anyone who will listen, laughing like crazy at his silly parents making fools of themselves just to hear that sweet sound, grabbing at (& holding onto) anything that crosses his path, and *finally* rolling all over the place (I swear he becomes an acrobat when I put him in his crib)! I am so lucky to be this sweetie's momma. He definitely makes my world a better place. I love you, Wilder! ✩ #wildercobalt On this June Gloomy day we went to #menottis for a latte and to listen to a little Modest Mouse. Turns out, Wilder really likes that band. [Not pictured: abundant smiles, then sadness while waiting for the record to be flipped.] #wildercobalt My darling and I went on a little park adventure today to get out of the neighborhood. I love getting to watch this guy see and experience new things with so much curiosity. Such a joy. #wildercobalt
