The perfect weekend.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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.

I sure am thankful for these two turkeys! 🦃🦃 🍂🍁💛 #wildercobalt #firstthanksgiving #fbf to when my little guy was only 4 months old. He's still got those beautiful baby blues! 💙✨ #wildercobalt 📷: @_derekhansen I can't believe that this bundle has been shaking every fiber of my life for 10 months already. Every day this kid's shrieks and squeals make me laugh, and I can't get enough. He is a super speedy crawler now, and pulls to standing on everything. He is not afraid to just dive for whatever he's got his eye on, regardless of the consequences. He is super strong-willed but also so chill all at once. Sleep is a major issue again all of a sudden, but I have faith that it's a phase, and I'm soaking in the extra snuggles while I can. This boy is my heart and soul. He's growing into the most amazing little person! #wildercobalt My little Smurf! 💙 I had a meeting at Urbanic, and this sweetie behaved like a little angel in his fort under the Wedding Lounge table. #wildercobalt #tbt to a few weeks ago when the [not so little anymore] peanut turned 9 months! Golly, each day with this kid is just the greatest adventure. His giggles and squeals [accompanied by those adorable dimples] are my lifeline. I love being this boy's momma so much! #wildercobalt 📷 by my wonderful and talented mother-in-law @yrbkladycarla 💕 DJ Wild Boy spinning some sick beats this morning. 🎶📻 #wildercobalt This little pumpkin did great at his 9 month check up! 20 lbs and 29". 🎃👏🏻
Sweet Wilder, I can't believe that in less than 3 months now you will be a whole year old. You are keeping me on my toes every day with your crawling, pulling up and relentless curiosity. You are currently anti-sleep, which is rough, but I suspect that the incoming teeth are to blame. (🙏🏻) You're the sweetest, most amazing creature I've ever had the honor of knowing. Thanks for being you! #wildercobalt Miss Bo sharing her dolls with Wilder. He had so much fun exploring a new house with new toys and a big kid to observe! 💖
#wildercobalt 🎶 Someday my prince will come... 🎶 My sweet prince riding in on his noble steed. 🐎👑 #wildercobalt #disneyland #9months Thankful. I am so thankful for these two. For a husband who puts caring for his family above all else, and is happy to do it. For a son who can remind me with a little giggle or a glance how good life can be, and shows me daily how to live more adventurously. I'm just thankful for this little family that I call mine. We are a team, and it's just gonna keep getting better.

+ #tbt to 2 week old Wilder, who will be 9 months on Saturday! 😧😭💞
