I am scrambling to get caught up on the blog, folks. Starting with the fact that Henry and I were regular jet-setters in November and I haven’t even recapped here.
Who am I?
So, forgive me but I’m wrapping it all up in one massive post of photos. If you don’t love recaps of other people’s travels (and who WOULDN’T?) then you can skip this. But, because the blog is really meant to document our lives (and because I have approximately 19,832 photos of the trips), I’m going to do a bit of a download.
Now that I’m home with Henry, I have a lot more flexibility to travel. And I’m not going to lie, it’s awesome.
My folks spend the winters in sunny Arizona so I jumped at the chance to visit them in November. My mom found a great deal on flights and Henry and I packed up and spent 10 days in the sunshine. After a bit of a rough start with our flight being cancelled and delayed and OHMYGODIHAVEATODDLERTOENTERTAIN, we made it to Arizona and to visit my parents. We love them.
Did I mention that I slept in every.single.day? Ahhhhh…… thank you, mom and dad.
Mom and I went to the fabulous Street of Dreams one day, too. So much house inspiration. I took tons of photos and hope to come back in another post to share more. But for now – you can check out my mom and I. And that backyard? Can you imagine looking at that every day?
And lest you think I just soaked up sun and slept in and enjoyed the relaxation, (which I did), I also had the chance to meet up with some of my very favorite bloggers – including the fabulous Caitlin from Desert Domicile. She and I went shopping in Phoenix at a variety of thrift shops. We really clicked – wish we were closer so we could hang out more often.
Speaking of clicking – Henry and I also had a play date with Michelle from Making Our Dream and Adrienne from Dream Book Design. I had a chance to meet up with them earlier this year and I’m so glad we could get the kids together this time. The train park was a HIT!
And don’t even get me started on the cuteness of all these babies. I mean …. seriously? Killing me with the cute. In this picture, the four of them are discussing ways to drive organic traffic to our blogs. Kenton had some excellent ideas about Pinterest. But Bray has some other thoughts about Facebook. Henry thinks it’s all hogwash and Camille is focused on her snacks.
Thank you so much to my mom and dad for being such wonderful hosts.
Once Henry and I flew home, we had less than a week before we packed up the car to drive to Memphis, Tenn., to visit Ryan’s family. I only took a handful of photos this time. But, it was wonderful to see Ryan’s family, many of whom hadn’t met Henry.
And while Henry had never met his second cousin Shelby, he knew who she was immediately. (I think he recognized her from a picture on our fridge.) He bopped right over to her when we arrived and rarely left her side.
