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.

Not that anyone but me really cares, but my baby has some really cute coos and spit bubbles, and I ♡ him. #wildercobalt 👋🏻 Our darling Wilder turned 4 months old yesterday. This babe is a little ball of energy, always keeping us on our toes. (& he's not even mobile yet!!!) He is gripping anything he can get his hands on, smiling, laughing and cooing. He's 15.5 lbs & 25" long. So proud of our growing little guy! #wildercobalt Little guy decided napping is lame today. We tricked him into a few catnaps, but other than that, 😳. Good thing he's so dang cute! #wildercobalt #4months Last night I brought the happiest, most well-behaved little boy on my flight home to LA. This kid is one fantastic traveller. He was awake for a total of 30 minutes on this 5+ hour flight. 😍✈️☁️ #wildercobalt These little bugs are best buddies already! Wilder at 4 months, Jude at 8 months. Today they said goodbye to each other until we go on vacation together in 6 weeks! 🐛 #wildercobalt #judeemerson #gatescousins Wilder's first time in the pool! 🐬 #wildercobalt Wild guy is loving all the space to squirm around here at Grammy's house + it's warm enough for diaper-only time! I am a seriously lucky momma. This little boy behaved like a dream baby today on our long flight to Florida! We laughed and played (+ he napped and napped). And at the end, he got a set of wings from the pilot! ☁️✨👼🏼✨☁️ #wildercobalt Wild man's first flight! LAX ⇢ MCO! 👼🏼✈️💕 #wildercobalt I'm so lucky I get to be this sweet boy's momma. Those smiles and coos are everything. 🙌🏻 #wildercobalt #1stmothersday
