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.

Got all gussied up for a 1st birthday brunch for our sweet friend. Wilder had about 25 waffles, played on the dreamiest swing, and attempted to drink my mimosa all morning, all while chasing around the big kids at the party. I'd say that's a good morning! #wildercobalt This dreamy little hunk is mine! 😍 #wildercobalt #21months My little bruiser at the pumpkin patch yesterday. ✨🎃🍂 #wildercobalt Took Wilder to the park today after work/babysitter. He's been pretty grumpy due to his black eye (see IG story...I think it's still there?), and ended up having a super fun time. Sunset park times are my favorite with him these days! #wildercobalt Today @_derekhansen got home from work really early, so we booked it over to @lacma to show our boy some fun! He loved the #levitatedmass and the exhibit shown here, as you can tell by the look of pure joy on his face. We missed the children's gallery...but next time! #wildercobalt We are packing up to head back home to our sweet little boy after a weekend away kid-free. I did it, you guys!!! I miss Wilder like crazy, but it was amazing to remember that before a baby, we were us...and we still are. Walks with this guy. So much fun and so much drama. #toddlers #wildercobalt This week was a big one in the life of these two. Their budding friendship is already so precious. Thankful that Wilder has a cousin he is so close in age with. Can't wait to see them reunite in 9 weeks when they come see us in LA! ❤️ #wildercobalt #judeemerson #cousins
... + HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JUDE! 🎈✨ My sweet little travel buddy truly did an amazing job of behaving and listening to his momma today. I knew he'd be a good boy, but he really far-exceeded my expectations. Then seeing him (re)unite with his cousin was just the absolute most adorable thing ever. This kid has my heart, and is such an all-star traveler! 🌟✈️ #wildercobalt #solowitha19montholdonaplane😵 #LAXtoMCO This morning, this little wild child and I are hopping on a plane to visit my family in Florida to celebrate my sweet nephew's 2nd birthday! 👋🏻 LA! #wildercobalt #prayforme #solowitha19montholdonaplane😵
