We are back in California and it feels soooo dang goood. This weather is amazing. We stopped by Santa Monica Beach and let Atticus play in the sand for a while – he loves it and each time we go its a new experience.. he went from hating it – to loving it – to eating it – and now he just crawls around in it and looks for objects to eat.. aka cigarette butts…. we DONT let him eat those or even get close to eating them but he will see them in the distance and power crawl towards them and reach for them! I have to grab them before he does 🙂 those and wrappers. He is all about eating paper and wrappers these days just like Chauncey… those two become more and more similar by the day. I think Atticus looks so old in his flat brim hat and especially since two of his top teeth are poking through he is just looking so much older! Eek. And as much as I don’t like that he is growing up so fast it only gets more fun. He is so hilarious I love it.

If you haven’t been able to tell, I love Wildfox sweaters!! I love soft sweaters in general and if my closet could be filled with every Wildfox sweater I would be one happy camper. I wore this floral one to the beach since it was pretty breezy and we walked the pier and listened to performers.

Now we are at the Madonna Inn for a couple days which has been on my bucket list for a long time and its just as amazing as I thought! I did a little meet up this evening for anyone in the area to come hang out with David and Atticus and I and it was so fun getting to meet some of you!!! I am going to be doing them in all the cities we travel to so I can meet more of you and hang out so look out for the locations/times on my insta!

  1. I’m sorry if this has been asked before, but what model are the Porsche sunglasses? Dying to get this pair. You make them look amazing!

  2. Hope you make it back to Nashville sometime, would love to get my 6.5 month old little man together with Atticus and chat with another cool mom 🙂

  3. Amber-

    I have lived in CA for 19 years now and never heard of the Madonna Inn! How fun!!

    I think you should put San Diego on your list of next destinations. It would be so fun to meet you and your cute family!

    XOXO Ann

  4. Hi Amber! Just curious after you had your son how long did you lose hair for and were there any things you did to help diminish the amount falling out? My son is four months old and since he was two months mine has been falling out like crazy! Seriously I can pull multiple handfuls out! I have super thick hair and lots of it so it’s not like I’m going bald or anything it’s just annoying and my poor boy ends up covered in my hair every day haha thanks! X

  5. Gorgeous, Amber!! Is that Atticus donating a dollar to the ukulele man?? Ahhh LOVE! Enjoy California!! So sad I couldn’t it make it down to the Madonna Inn to say hello! Next time! XO!

  6. You should come to Miami! We are having beautiful weather. I just spent 4 hours at the park with my toddler. Glorious day!

  7. You have the most perfect little family. Every time I read your blog or see your instagram posts I wish we could be best friends even more. You seem so genuine and sweet and your little boy is absolutely taking on those same qualities that you have. Hope you have a great little vacation 🙂

  8. It looks like it was beautiful sunny day to spend at the pier (even if it was a tad breezy). I love your Wildfox sweater. If I had a closet filled with soft sweaters I would be one happy camper too! 🙂
