Our 4th Trimester

As I sit here and write this blog post, I’m on the verge of tears. I just finished walking Logan and put her down for a nap. Honest, this may be my most vulnerable blog post yet — I’m putting myself out there in a real, raw and honest way. Why am I doing that? Because sometimes it’s nice to just write it down. For me sometimes it feels therapeutic. And because I know someone out there resonates with me and maybe this post makes them feel a little less alone. The first few months can feel isolating. Especially if you’re far from friends and family like I am.

Must watch summer series

Chance and I don’t have cable so we’re avid Netflix and Hulu watchers. We rely heavily on our Roku. Since having Logan, we’ve watched our share of new shows so I thought I’d suggest FOUR series for summer viewing.

Sleep. We all know we need it. But do we really realize why it’s important? And doesn’t it seem like when we’re falling behind in one area of our lives, sleep is often the first sacrifice we make?

Our Palm Springs Wedding

Oh YAS, the ACE Hotel. The perfect spot for our Palm Springs wedding. Chance and I both dig succulents, color, bold patterns and mid-century modern design so P.S. was a no brainer. Still within the U.S. but gives you that vacay vibe — snow on the mountain tops but desert terrain below. We truly wanted this special weekend of ours to be our guests mini-getaway.

N is for New Journey

I usually update the blog about once a week but lately lyfe has been crazy. June was a big month for me (us). We bought a new house. We moved. I turned the big 3-0 (gasp). We got engaged. And the fiancé is back out on the pitch!
