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.

Last week my lovely friend @narine__ brought me a bouquet of my favorite flowers. Making these pretties last! Today we begin our adventure into the world of cloth diapering. Wish us luck! #wildercobalt This little sweetie only wants momma cuddles today. Can't say I mind too much. ♡ | #wildercobalt Little mister is learning how to play (sort of)! Yesterday we went to the pediatrician for his 2 month check up. 10 lbs, 10 oz, 22 inches! Tall Hansen boy. Our Wilder is definitely thriving. 👏💪 Accidental capture while Wilder and I were sitting on the front stoop today. Yes, we do still have our Christmas lights up. Cut us a break! We had a baby the weekend we would have taken them down, and haven't had a chance to since. 😁😳 @_derekhansen is back from SXSW, and we couldn't be happier about it. | #wildercobalt This boy. He is the best, and most incredible person we've ever met. Today, we celebrate 2 months since the beautiful day he was born. Every day he is more alert and active, bringing more joy to our lives with every hilarious facial expression he makes. We love you so much, Wilder! These dreamy little lips have been in our lives for a whole 8 weeks (as of Saturday). Tomorrow #wildercobalt is officially 2 months! ♡ I can't believe this boy will be 8 weeks old this weekend. Unreal. #tbt to 7 weeks ago when this photo was taken, and our little guy was so teensy (only around 5.5 lbs - now he's about 9.5!!!) at just 1 week old. We love our boy. #wildercobalt This weekend marks 9 years @_derekhansen and I have been together. (Though we met 11 years ago!) So fortunate to be doing life with this guy!
