Here are some pictures from our flight to Bora Bora and some pics once we got there! We first had to take a flight from New York to LA and then we had about a 13 hour layover so we got a hotel and Atticus ate and then slept for 7 hours. Then we took a flight from LA to Tahiti which wasnt as rough as I thought it would be. Then a short flight from Tahiti to Bora Bora. The Four Seasons then picked up us up by boat and brought us to the resort. I am not going to lie it was a realllllly long day of traveling – I think I did worse than Atticus did. He was such a trooper and got a full 12 hours of sleep in and was so happy when we got there. I just couldn’t get comfortable with my belly on the plane! We kept going back and forth if we were going to bring Atticus or not but I am no where near ready to leave him for more than a few hours (and that is usually when he is asleep!) let alone overnight. It gives me really bad anxiety thinking about being away from him so we realized it was we either bring him or we don’t go, and I am so happy we brought him. It really has been so much fun with him here and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. He has been extra extra sweet these last few weeks, always wanting to cuddle and give hugs. It makes me so so so so happy.

What kind of camera and lens do you usually use to shoot your photos? I know this is probably a question for David, as he seemingly shoots them, but I figured you would know! 😉
    You and your beautiful family are TRULY a breathe of fresh air and positivity. You remind me of myself in so many ways, and I very much look up to you. Its so inspiring to read your travel posts, and see all of the fun adventures you guys get into. Keep em’ comin’ !

  14. This looks like a dream! I feel the same way about being away from my little one. He is 2 and I still haven’t been away for more than half a day.
    On a side note: it’s incredible to look at your blog and life now compared to where you and the blog were 2 years ago. So fancy and living the dream now…..
    Good for you! And I am glad you still seem so humble and sweet on here

    1. Thanks so much Carly!! I appreciate the love and support so much!! You are amazing, and your words made my day! And I am glad you agree about being away!! It is so hard and I feel like it’s not worth it! 🙁 I am sure with my second, it may be a little different, but we will see! Thank you for reading love!! xoxo

  15. These photos are seriously so stunning! I’m so glad Atticus did well with all of the flying! I can’t wait to see more pictures 🙂

  16. You’ve been to so many beautiful places in the last few months! I have a travel list based on your trips lol I can’t decide where I want to go next because every time you take a new trip I become obsessed with that location! Whicht has been your favorite so far and which place would you recommend the most?

    1. Ahh that’s the problem!! There’s too many amazing places, it is so hard to decide!! It is all about what you want out of your trip. Bora Bora is an ideal relaxing vacation where you don’t have to do much besides relax 😉 But if you are wanting something where you’re more on the go and out exploring, I suggest Europe: Italy and France were some of my favorite countries to visit!! xo

  17. What tranquility there is in the moments when it’s just you and your boy laying together in paradise. These photos are incredible and thanks for sharing 🙂


    1. It was such a special moment, I will never forget it 🙂 Thanks so much for reading Julia!! xo

    1. Thanks so much!! I agree, I LOVE this age 🙂 So fun!! And November!! Ahh can’t wait 😉

  18. This looks incredible!

    How on earth do you guys afford to travel so often to such incredible places? When do either of you find the time to work?!

    Seems you live an incredibly blessed life.

    Your bump looks beautiful 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Ella!! We are fortunate enough to be able to work from anywhere, which allows us to work from home or on vacations. We are thankful for the flexibility of our work through my blog. Thank you for reading and being so sweet!! xo

  19. Wow!! Stunning pictures! Feeling nostalgic looking at these! I would be interested in how you feel Bora Bora compares to other places you have been since I think it’s the most beautiful place I have ever seen!! Hope you are having a blast!!


    1. Thank you so much!! Bora Bora is honestly the most amazing beach vacation in my opinion. It is one of those places were you can go and just relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery! We had a wonderful time, thanks so much!! xo

  20. Looks like so much fun Amber! Bora Bora truly is amazing. Everything is so beautiful and the water is so clear. Looks like you guys are having a great trip!

  21. These pictures make my heart burst! They are so unbelievably adorable! I can’t believe how beautiful your resort is! It’s gorgeous! I’m sure you guys are just having a blast especially since you brought Atticus along with you. I have the same anxiety about leaving my son for more than a couple of hours at a time. The thought of being away from him overnight is enough to bring on a full out panic attack haha! #momlife 😉

    Carly xo

    1. Ahh thank you Carly!!! You are the sweetest!! It was the best having him with us 🙂 We wouldn’t have had it any other way looking back! And why is it so hard?! Mommy instincts or something!! 🙂 xo

  27. Beautiful photos! I love the ones with Atticus asleep on your chest, so precious.

    You are giving me hope that we will survive a non-stop 10 1/2 hour flight from JFK to Honolulu with a very active 16 month old!! Do you have any must have tips?!

  28. Hi,
