How was everyone’s weekend?! We had friends in town staying with us so it was lots of fun. We went to the beach, me and Atticus did some baking (I have loved baking with him!), had a lazy day at home doing crafts, worked on some new stuff for our extension line (exciting stuff coming!), and had lots of good family time. I tweeted this pic of a convo David and I had over text last week 🙂 it made me happy. We put our phones away for the weekend and didn’t bring them out with us til night time. The biggest thing I noticed was… I never realized how much I am on my phone when we drive around to and from places. I want to try to leave my phone at home when we drive around because I talked to the kids more and sang more songs with them and me and David had better conversations. I definitely want to make that a weekend tradition. So nice having no distraction family time.

Also you may notice the new lay out on the blog! This will help each post to load faster and help us use higher quality images. 🙂

Have a good day!!! xo

  1. Hi Amber! I LOVE your blog. I am 24 and really really want to start having children. Was it hard to have a son at 24? What advice do you have for me?

  2. I just can’t with your beautiful offspring. Seriously, I want to say that every time you post pictures with them, but come on! Genetically blessed little sun babies 🙂 And why don’t they make that flamingo suit in big girl sizes?

  3. I am absolutely loving Rosie’s outfit! Can you please tell me where you got her burnt orange top and bloomers? I would love to get them for my daughter who is Rosies age!

    1. I am also dying to know about the top!!! I have been on google images looking for it.

  4. Sounds like an amazing weekend! I do know what you mean about being on my phone all the time and I know it’s something I need to work on! It definitely frustrates my boyfriend..

  5. YOUR IMAGES ARE BRIMMED WITH LIFE AND SUPER! I HAVE HEARD YOU HAVE LISTED WHAT KIND OF GEAR U USE AND WHEN..BUT WHERE IS THIS LISTE ????

  6. Oh my stars! Seriously?? Rosie’s thighs in that little pink flamingo swimsuit!! I want to squish them! Love it!!

  7. every single one of your pics and posts are to die for. you’re such an inspiration with the way you live your life and how you prioritize your family and all of you guys happiness! brings so much happiness to see. and such an inspiration of how we all should be! you’ve inspired me to not sweat the small stuff, embrace the messes while raising cute, kind and happy tiny humans, and just making the best out of every moment and finding the beauty in it. love your love and how you live your life. just wanted to share because I think its important when someone (even if someone you don’t know personally) makes you happy and inspires you to be more – to tell them so! cheers from jersey! ps: of course you’re making me wanting to pick up our fam and just go move to hawaiii haha… so much love xoxo

    1. hi Amber i really love Rosie’s swimsuit with the flamingos bu cant find where its from can you help me please? xxx

  8. I noticed Atticus is wearing underwear. Is he potty trained? Would love a post with potty training tips and tricks!

  9. Ohhh my how are you ever going to leave Hawaii? You (and your fam) look so so happy in all the pictures. Life just seems pretty perfect there!

    btw I loved your blog for not having those annoying ‘continue readings’… buuuuuut ok I’ll live with that 😉

      1. Can you please share where it is from? i absolutely love it. THANK YOU!!!

  10. These pics are so beautiful! Looks like you are having an amazing time in Hawaii!! I would love to visit one day!!! Our weekend is ok, I’m currently battling with a teething baby yikes… 🙁

  11. Hi Amber!!! Do you think you could link where you got your sunnies and orange bathing suit/bra that you wore with the free people sweater? I have serious outfit envy!!!

  12. Ah, I don’t know if I could ever leave my phone at home regularly!! I’ve done it a couple times last month and it was strangely freeing 🙂 Also, I’m not sure if this is just me, but I notice it heavily in these photos that Rosie looks a lot like you and Atticus looks a lot like David! Maybe I’m just seeing things!

    P.S. Home-grown oranges are *the* best!! My grandmother has a tree in her backyard in San Diego and the oranges there are amazing!

  13. LITERALLY the cutest fam EVER! i can’t even handle it! so perfect!! atticus is sooooo cute in his lil undies! so glad you were able to potty train him! LOVE!

  14. I love these pictures so much, every single outfit in these pictures are so cute! (especially Rosie’s orange top!)
    Phones are such a big distraction, I think just technology in general is starting to take over our lives and its really sad. Im so glad I had a childhood free of technology and I definitely want to pass that on to my (hopefully) future children!

  15. Your kiddos make my heart sing 🎶 what a wonderful life they experience every single day with the most loving parents. Their smiles are infectious 😍 Seeing your posts brightens my life. (I don’t have any grandkids) Your babies make me smile every day

  16. amber, this is totally unrelated to this post lol but I just wanted you opinion on something. I am in search for a warm, durable winter coat and was wondering what was your warmest winter coat that you had while you lived in NY. I am not really concerned about price as I have to walk outside during the day and am ready to make the splurge if needed to stay warm. Thanks for any opinions! I love everything u do btw!

  17. Good job on putting down the phones! I always worry about not being “contactable” in an emergency but I love putting it away in my bag and forgetting about it 🙂
    Enjoy your day,

  18. I LOVE the new layout. I was actually showing my boyfriend your blog the other day (finding inspiration to start my own blog soon), and he said the only thing he would change was exactly what you changed! I think it looks even better this way 🙂 Also, can I ask what camera you use for your blog pictures? They look amazing!

    1. Thank you so much!! I really appreciate the the nice words and feedback 🙂 And I use a canon 5d mark iv!!

  19. Such a beautiful family!! I always look forward to your posts. You might have mentioned it, but where is Rosie’s orange yellow sweater from? It’s absolutely adorable!

  20. I did notice the “continue reading” feature yesterday! That’s so great that it will allow you to have even prettier pictures! I saw on Janelle’s Insta that they were in Hawaii and I was like “omg I hope they’re with the clarks!!!” So fun!! And those oranges are seriously so pretty they like unreal!! 😍

  21. Isn’t it crazy how much time we spend on our phones without even realizing it?? Glad you had a lovely weekend, it sounds perfect! And Rosie’s little orange top is so boho and cute…love it!!

  22. My 2016 New Year’s Resolution was to stop using social media. I actually did it! It was hard at first but now I have no desire to check my feeds every two seconds and I feel like I have way more person-to-person interactions. I know that’d be hard for you to do, but I’m sure its nice to do every once in a while. Thanks Amber for sharing your fresh and relatable posts. As always, I look forward to reading them.
    Have a great and blessed week.

    With love,
    Halle

  23. Awe Amber! I always love popping in to see those smiling faces. I’m sure your family has it’s moments of being unhappy, but you all always look so happy. I love that about your blog. Looks like you are all adjusting well to Hawaii! So happy for you. Sending love and hugs.

  25. LOVE the colors in the Free People sweater! Obsessed with the suit from Asos :)!! Cute all around!

  26. Hawaii suits you guys! Where is The hoodie from that Atticus is wearing ?

    Thanks!

  27. Such a cute post! And thanks for the link to those laces; I have been looking for some high quality (and aesthetically pleasing) laces to replace the boring pair on my hiking shoes.

    Can’t wait to see pictures of the pup!

  28. I always love all of your outfits.. but then I click the link to look where they are from and how much they are and almost have a heart attack. I would love if you would do some more posts on more affordable clothing that the average girl could buy. Don’t get me wrong, I am so happy for you guys that you have gotten where you are and that you can buy pretty much any clothing you want! I would just love a little more inspiration that I could afford.

  29. Super cute pics Amber! I really love Rosie’s swimsuit! Where is it from?

  30. I love you guys so much! You all are so cute! Rosie’s little pigtails get me every time!!!!!

  31. Your family photos are so cute! You look like you guys are really enjoying Hawaii and having so much fun <3

  32. Hi Amber, I’ve been following your blog for a while now and I just want to say that I think its really great how much quality time you spend with Atticus and Rosie especially being a young mom. I’m not married yet and don’t have kids but you inspire me to want to do the same with my kids one day, so thank you for sharing!

    Also, that ruffle swimsuit, super cute!!!
