I kid you not you guys, these hills are evvverywhere and are 100 times more beautiful in person!!! One of the most beautiful things I have ever seen in my entire life. We were on a drive on Lincoln Gap Road going from Shelburne to Warren and we passed this amazing swing hanging from a tree! We saw a home way up above it and drove up to go ask them if we could use it and then had the best time playing on it! For sure one of the highlights for the kids as you can tell from those massive smiles. It felt like we were in a storybook with all of those perfect leaves and the kids giggles – so good. Can you tell we just a little bit loved this trip?

Photos from A Beautiful October Day in Vermont

We are back from Vermont and it was amazzzing!!! Like seriously one of my favorite trips! Everyone kept saying we came the perfect week and that the leaves would all be gone by the next week. It was peak foliage and truly SO beautiful everyyyywhere.. not just on one street but honestly every single street was insane. Such a fun week with the fam and one I will remember forever. The day of these photos we woke up and went to breakfast at Butler’s Pantry which was soooo good (we actually ate there twice because it was so good) and hung out in town then went on drives and admired the leaves. Then we went swimming for a while and then on a bike ride and fishing…

This post is sponsored by Haven Life. All opinions are my own. On Sunday we went for a little adventure out in the desert! It is finally starting to cool down and is raining today which is so nice. With the new baby on the way, I’ve been thinking more about these exciting milestones in our life and how overwhelmingly lucky I feel. But, I realize things can change in an instant. That’s why I want to talk about something that I think is super important for families. About a year and a half ago, David and I finally bought Life Insurance. With 2 young kids at home, we knew it was the right time to have this financial protection in place. We actually had been meaning to do it for awhile because we knew that this was an important precaution that we wanted to take.

I am half way through my pregnancy so I wanted to share some updates with you all! I have been feeling really good as of late and pretty much after I passed the first trimester my hormones leveled out and any pregnancy blues I had, LUCKILY went away! I haven’t felt sick or hormonal (well except for my normal day to day being a woman hormonal lol) and I have only had acid reflux and restless leg – but can’t complain because I would way rather have that than major mood swings!

Happy Friiiiday! Starting off the weekend with a 12 thing. I had the best waffle ever the other day – it was at at Lolo’s Chicken and Waffles at the Phoenix airport. It looked like a glorified eggo waffle (I love eggo waffles) and was soooo good so last night I ordered another from a different location – except this one was not as good and seemed like a different waffle. Sad. Second, my biggest pet peeve (okay not my biggest but up there) is when there are people looking for seats at the gate at the airport and none are available for them because people are taking up too many unnecessary spaces. Like one guy was alone and had his mcdonalds bag in one seat, his backpack in another. Another women was taking up FOUR seats with her belongings.

Are you sick of my Europe pics yet?! Haha I know we have so many. I love taking photos but I also love coming home and not taking photos for a while. Gotta have some balance I guess. My sister and her lil fam are in Europe now and since they are in Lake Como I was looking up all our pics we took there as a family and went down a rabbit hole looking at so many old photos. I love looking back on our travel photos they are so special to me! When we got to the La Spezia port we took a super quick 10 min train ride…

We recently got back from our families first cruise vacation together. We went to Europe to get a first look at Royal Caribbean’s newest ship, Symphony of the Seas . The 7-night Western Mediterranean itinerary started off in Barcelona and stopped at Palma de Mallorca, Spain; Marseille, France; and La Spezia, Rome and Naples in Italy. You’ve already seen posts on here from most of those places! It was really nice to be able to go to all those countries in one vacation with the kids and not have to pack everything up and take a train or road trip or anything like that!We either did our own excursion that we planned or one planned by Royal Caribbean – you have the option to do either at any port you visit! So, if planning things to do in foreign countries can be stressful for you, then their planned excursions like their “Private Journeys,” which we did, would be a good idea.

Some pictures from beautiful Cassis today!!! I love love love Cassis – it is a beautiful little port town that offers the most incredible hikes and views. We didn’t have time (or the correct clothing lol) to do a hike but instead we hung on the beach and rented a paddle boat which was so fun. The kids searched for pirates and jumped in the freezing water followed by getting some gelato which you can tell the kids were very into. It is always fun going back with kids to places David and I have been before and have memories. We kept talking about all the familiar spots we passed – the parking lot we slept in (we slept in our car haha), the place we went to get hot coco because I was so cold that morning, the hotel we parked outside of hoping to get some free wifi 😉 haha such freeloaders omg.

Last time I was in Barcelona I was with Atticus when he was 3 months old! It was our last stop of a 3 week Europe trip and I was TIRED. I remember trying to find the energy to leave our Airbnb to go explore but we only left a handful of times and mostly snuggled in bed together. I also remember sitting there nursing him as we were laying down and all the sudden seeing a spider crawl across his tummy and I freaked out!!! I hate spiders and instantly feel so dirty and gross like they are crawling all over me after I see one so I found a new bed for us haha. I love telling Atticus all…
