David and I got to have a couple hours of alone time in the city yesterday and it was pretty amazing. We didn’t do much but it felt good to just walk around baby-less and get hot coco and play in the snow and dance around. I have never wanted to leave the kids for a vacation but this made me realize I think David and I need a vacation alone not to get a break from the kids but to just get time for us – we haven’t been alone together without babies overnight since Atticus was born! Anyways – that no baby vacation is a ways out and we will see if I ever even get the courage to do it but is it terrible that yesterday made me excited for it? (I still love you kids!)

Speaking of vacations.. I am not sure if you guys saw my instagram from yesterday but David and I have been wanting to do something to celebrate 1 million instagram followers/say thank you for following for a while! I hit a million around the time Rosie was born and it wasn’t good timing so we are late but we wanted to do a giveaway. The winner will get flights for 2 to NYC, 2 nights in a hotel, we will take you to dinner (optional but if you do want to go to dinner, I will braid your hair for it!), blogging and photography tips (also optional!). This is open to international followers. If you ALREADY live in NYC instead of flights and hotel we will do spa day, lunch, and shopping. TO ENTER: comment on this instagram (here) and tag the friend you would bring with you!

Good luck and thank you so much for following! We so much appreciate it!!!! XO

PS Miami vlog will go up today, we had technical difficulties yesterday and some of the footage didnt get saved 🙁 but oh well!

  1. Amber! I love these photos! So cute! I am so going to miss seeing NYC photos when you move but so excited for your new adventure!
    I was wondering if you were going to do a New york travel guide soon( I am going to New York in December:)

  2. Your blog is the best. Everything about it, the transparency, the beauty, the style, your family. Forreal, I love looking at your posts. Blessings!

  3. I absolutely love this and think this is so rad of you guys! My husband and I would absolutely LOVE this! I of course entered on IG the minute you posted it, but I also wanted to let you know we will be in NY this May and would love to meet up if possible! I could definitely go for some braiding tips. 🙂

  4. Amber, I didn’t think it was possible for you to get any cuter!! I love the simple color of your coat + those amazing colorful mittens. NYC is always so gorgeous in the winter time.

  5. Hi Amber! I absolutely love this one. The snow looks so beautiful & you guys look like you are having such a good time. How nice of you guys to have such an incredible give away! Not sure if you have already picked a winner but if I won I would definitely take my sister who is my best friend. I need a break from my hubby and kid hahaha! I moved to southern California 5 years ago from Connecticut & my sister is still in CT & we both love love love NY & you guys. 🙂 anyway great pics as usual. Looking forward to the next post! -Karen

  6. Amber! Ok, so I’m 10 years older (*sigh*) and all of my mommy friends and I follow you religiously (although HOW did we miss this giveaway, I don’t know :() We get together once a month, like a book club, but not-it’s our blogger club (long story but we all bring our most FAVORITE blog post of that month and you are always top on everyone’s list, so we sit there, sip our wine, go through blogs and all wish we were 10 years younger and living in NYC!! Ha!
    Anyway, we haven’t ever even commented on a blog let alone ask what I’m about to….. (am I a complete nerd for even asking?) but……. we are doing a little girls trip (4 of us) to NYC (we live in Annapolis, MD) and would love to meet you(again, I feel like such a nerd doing this, especially bc we’re 10 years older), and take YOU out to lunch….. You’ve probably stopped reading this by now(and I wouldn’t blame you), but on the off chance you’ve subjected yourself to this comment….my insta is @Lindseyfoundos we’ll be in NYC the end of Feb to shop, see a show….and YOU!!!….Hey, we’d be pleased to see Chauncey 🙂 If you take anything from this comment (aside that you think I’m probably a freak creeper…you inspire us 35 year old moms and we think you are pretty darn adorable and blessed and we all in a good way envy the heck out of you 🙂 thanks for doing what your doing….now go stalk me on insta, I promise I’m not a weirdo!!

  7. I love and live for your blog. It is the little shining moment in my day where I get away from it all and check out your funny stories about Atticus, Rosie Belle, Chauncey. It makes me so excited to start my own little family (31 weeks week). I love the beauty/shopping tips but also the sense of family 🙂 keep doing what your doing you’re amazing!

  8. You look stunning! Love the bright red lip in the white snow. I just discovered Stila products and love them!
    Also, how generous are you two??? What an amazing giveaway. Y’all are the sweetest! I’m sure that lucky winner will enjoy every second of it. I’m excited for you to announce some more meet ups this year. Hopefully there is one near me 🙂

  9. The pictures are really really pretty and as cute as your little family is! You just inspire me every single day and I’m so thankful I found this blog, I love it! And I especially love reading your texts in which you talk about your every day life – I would be super happy if one day I had the possibility to meet you and just talk to you in person! (I’m going to contact you if I’m one day in the USA haha -just be prepared). And of course I would love to meet your little kiddies as well, every time I see pictures you post of them I get really excited to have this one day too 🙂
    Just be who you are: I think you are a super mummy and you are doing everything so good and with so much happiness!

  10. Hi Amber! this is just a gorgeous idea!
    You have such a lovely blog and the adventures of your little family are great.
    I hope i will win because i will be very happy to meet both of you, you are so inspirationnal!

  11. I gave a try and commented (ok I admit it, I commented twice when I saw there was 680000 comments. It is a small shot, but it is a shot anyway) so hopefully I will be the luckiest girl in the world to win it, and I will just have to blame myself for cutting 30cm of hair a month ago (still have enough to do braids, but not as long as your talents deserve!). Your tips on bloggin and photography would be perfect as I am a babyblogger for a few months now and still have to work on it, especially pictures, my husband David (yes, he’s name is David too, how funny, see, we should totally win!) still has some work to make amazing pictures like your David does ! And last, but not least, we could totally welcome you, Atticus, Rosie, and Chauncey in Paris next time you are visiting France ! Or just you and David, if you’re planning a romantic vacations just for two 🙂 Well, I’m done with trying to influence you, it is so bad, I am almost ashamed of my comment. I just have to wish me luck. Bonne chance ! xxx

  12. Oh man. I would totally bring my friend Leanne with me. We are both anxiety ridden moms who need a break! I’ve been following you forever & would absolutely LOVE to meet you in person AND have my hair braided. I need some tips. I just can’t braid my own hair! Here is to hoping 🙂 Congratulations on 1 million. You are an amazing person and definitely deserve it!!

    1. Aww I loved reading this!! Thanks so much for the sweet comment!! So glad you entered the giveaway!! Good luck!! xo

  13. I’ve probably commented on your Instagram picture like 20 times, but my sister Bella and I would be so happy to win the giveaway. I’ve been following you on Instagram since the first day you got your dog like four or five years ago haha. you are such an inspiration and an icon to me. meeting you would be a dream come true. especially in New York, my sister and I have always planned on taking a New York trip for her senior/graduation trip. we would be so excited to see our names announced as the winners of the giveaway.


    1. I don’t know why I said five years it was like two or three haha. so random.

    2. Yay!! So glad you and your sister entered 🙂 I am so glad!! And thank you for the sweet comment, I loved reading it!!! Good luck!! xo

  14. Hey Amber!!!! I was wondering, what camera do you guys use? My mom wants to get me a camera for a graduation gift, and I just love the quality of your photos more than anything!<3

  15. You guys look like you’re having so much fun in the snow! No of course you two deserve a romantic getaway. 🙂 I have a little girl of 16 months and the few times we’ve been away makes us love her all the day-to-day stuff all the more (if possible ).. ! Greetings from Denmark 🙂

  16. Lovely pictures, I want snow here now! We’ve had a one week holiday without kid so far, and it was worth it! Especially if you can leave them with your partents and not be concerned at all, it’s just really amazing to go back to spending time as a couple for a whole week. Even though we mentioned our son about a 100 times a day and missed him a lot, we enjoyed that week and think it should become a once a year thing..

  17. These pictures are sooo cute! And I love the givaway! I would LOVE to meet you, David and your two angels! Visiting the big city with my best friend is a dream coming true!

  18. HELLO! Amber ???? I would be absolutely honoured to have you braid my hair and spend a day/ evening with you and your husband! You are not only my #hairspiration but a substantial inspiration in MULTIPLE different aspects for a young aspiring artist (as myself). It would be absolutely INCREDIBLE to receive photography/ blog tips as I am always trying to expand myself with my work! This would definitely be something I would want to do with my best friend (and sister), Kristy, as I got her obsessed with your blog too! Our dream is to meet you! ???? hope to hear from you, fingers are crossed!!! PS – If we get selected, I will embroider you something! hehe
    My instagram is: emilydoylee

  19. This was the most exciting news when I saw it on Insta! I had literally just sent you an email asking for advice about my new blog that same day haha Getting to talk to you in person would be a dream, especially because I look up to you and David so much! My boyfriend and I would love to hear all the advice you guys have to give, (he photographs me too). This would be so perfect! Thank you for offering such an incredible giveaway!
    Any who, you guys are the cutest in the pictures! You definitely deserve a vacation for just the two of you, you guys are the best parents. It shows so much! Have a great day 🙂

  20. The hubs and I took our first trip without our munchkin a few months back. The hardest day for me was the day we were supposed to leave. I was completely heart broken. But, I knew I was leaving him in the best hands possible (aside from me and my husband)…Grandma! After a good pep talk from my hubby…I was able to relax and enjoy our trip together. It’s amazing how quickly you forget what it’s like being just the two of you. I missed my munchkin more than I can ever express in words…but the trip and much needed alone time for me and my husband was amazing!

  21. This was the most exciting news when I saw it on Insta!

  22. Amber! I love your giveaway idea! You guys seem like you would be so much fun to hang out with! I, too, just made the decision to take my first baby free trip with my hubs (we have an 8 month old little lady and will be going away in March), so I completely understand all of the emotions that come along with that choice! Everyone keeps telling me that an occasional trip without the babies makes everyone happier- we’ll see! ????❤️

I, too, just decided to take my first baby-free trip with the hubs (we have an 8 month old little lady and we’ll be going away in March) so I completely understand all of the emotions that come along with that decision. From what I’m told, baby-free trips every once and again make everyone happier. We’ll see! ????❤️

  43. When I read this post, my jaw literally dropped. Every morning I am always excited to look for new posts on Barefoot Blonde. Pictures of you and your family literally brighten my day. I cannot get enough of Atticus’ smile! I left a comment on your Instagram post but there are so many comments that I’m sure you probably won’t see it. I wanted to leave something on here because maybe you’ll get a better chance to read it. I just want to say that I’ve been following your blog for many years now, and you and your family inspire me so much! It feels like we are friends but we’ve never even met! My best friend lives in New York she just got her masters degree in Fashion Studies at Parsons. I have always wanted to come to NY in the Winter and it would be such an incredible experience to meet you. It would literally make my life, and I know my bestie would love to meet you too. Even if I don’t get picked I wanted to show you some love no matter what. I hope you have a great week 🙂 These photos of you and David are great, and congratulations on 1 million followers! xoxo – Christine

  44. Congrats on 1M! What a fabulous giveaway! You two seem like such a well rounded, down to earth couple so whoever wins will be very lucky. Hope your kiddies are well!

  45. What an amazing giveaway! My husband and I have not been to New York but it’s on our travel bucketlist. I love these snowy pictures. May I ask which wide angle lense you use? You guys always have the best camera selfies! 🙂 I shoot with a mkiii too and am searching for the best ultra wide lens.

  46. I totally think getting away just you two is so important! My parents would go on dates or vacations all the time growing up! It helps for a happy and healthy marriage I think!

  47. I tagged the BF because he knows how much I enjoy your blog and all things long braided hair! You guys are certainly sweet for doing this!

  48. Hey Amber! Your blog is absolutely beautiful, and so are you. I love that you’re wearing ripped jeans in the snow ???? You’re my favorite blogger and my neice and I have commented for your competition so many times ???? It would be an honor to meet you!! Keep up the good work and have a blessed day ????

  49. Hi Amber
    I love your blog and have been trying to do your braids at home to myself and my 11 year old daughter. She was born 11 years ago in February during a very snowy winter in NYC

  50. I wish it snowed more in England! 🙁 I would love to go to nyc, it has been a dream of mine for a while. I would love to meet you 🙂

  51. How wonderful! Couple time is so important, especially when you get so little of it while taking care of your beautiful kiddos.

    The giveaway is so generous of you! Definitely entering 🙂 My friend Lindsay (BFFs since 3rd grade) would LOVE to fly out and meet you guys! <3 Happy Wednesday!

  52. My sister and I would love to come to dinner and spend time learning from you, braid my hair?! Yes, please! Sister trip!!!

    Sara Kate Styling

  54. Glad you two had the chance to explore the snow on your own. While I am exited to have babies here in NYC, it is fun to have just hubby & me time. And the snow brings out the kid in all of us 🙂 Hope we have at least one more good snow here in the city!

  55. Oh my goodness, Amber, I think I would cry and sob for days! Congratulations on all your success. It has been so wonderful to watch you and your family grow over the years. I think you and David deserve some R&R

    Much love from South Africa x

  56. Hi Amber, I am Silvia from Estonia and I´ve been following your blog and youtube videos for a year now. You are such a good inspiration for all the women! Thank you so much for sharing your beauty tips, styles and hair turtorials 🙂

  57. This is sooo true, my husband and I are staying with my parents for a bit so we have taken every opportunity to have time just us two while our little guy naps at home with the grandparents- although we rush home to see him cause we miss when he’s not with us 🙂 EEK this giveaway is too cool, not sure if you would fly people all the way from South Africa but flip we would LOVE this trip 🙂

It would be so amazing to meet you & your family. I have entered 🙂 I have always dreamed seeing NYC winter time, I miss snow so much (From Estonia, winters are really cold and snowy), haven’t seen it for like 6 years. That would be perfect trip to visit NYC, especially with people who live there 🙂 so awesome! Xxx

  63. Oh baby!!!! I’ve wanted to go to NYC for as long as I can remember!!!!

    I would take my mama!!!

  64. HI AMBER,




  65. Hi Amber!
    I don’t have an Instagram, but I would like to comment anyway here if it still counts. If not, that’s okay, I’m gonna write on how much I love your blog 😉 I wanted to say how inspirational you are to me, because you show the raw moments in life which is so amazing because some bloggers don’t do that, they try to sugar-coat their life. Besides a beautiful, honest blog I love your outfits! They are all so gorgeous and I love how each outfit means something to you(btw your lipstick color in this post is adorable! I wish I could rock that as well as you do!?) Also, your family is absolutely stunning! David seems like such an amazing guy, and Atticus and Rosie are so precious. I look forward to reading your blog every morning and wish you guys a wonderful day!! Much love xo
    P.S., I would bring my mom, sister, or my friend Lily to NYC. Annnd getting my hair done by you would be a dream!! I seriously don’t know any fancy braids but the basics, so getting a night to have beautiful hair would be absolutely wonderful!

  66. Dear Amber,
    My name is Erica. I am 14 years old and live in Iowa. I would just like to say how much I enjoy your work. I watch your blogs, vlogs, and other videos on YouTube. I love the way you do your makeup! Although I would not be expecting it soon due to how busy you must be with your little ones, maybe you could do a makeup tutorial sometime! I also have you on snapchat. Your snaps of Rosie yawning and stretching or Atticus eating snow are simply the cutest things I’ve ever seen. You inspire me to chase after my dreams because you are living life to the fullest, from traveling so much to spending time with your precious family. ???????????????????????????? I am an aspiring photographer. It would be such a privilege to learn photography tips from you and David. I am currently saving up for a good camera, as where now I am using an iPhone. New York is on my bucket list, and so is meeting you! 🙂 I recently tried to recreate one of your hairstyles, and with your YouTube tutorials it became quite simple after a bit of practice. I posted a picture of it on Instagram. I’d love for you to check it out! I would be absolutely stunned if you even read this. But if you do I hope it makes you smile!

    Your friend,

  67. Hey Amber! I just wanted to comment on here to tell you what an inspiration I think you are to not only women who live similar lifestyles as you (kids and a husband) but also to younger ladies such as myself! I’m nineteen and I have been watching you on YouTube and following you on your blog for a while now and I just think that you are such an amazing and sweet person as well as a really good role model! Congrats on your 1 million followers it is so deserved and such a great accomplishment! Also this is such a great giveaway . Myself and my best friend entered but even if we don’t win I know whoever does will have such and amazing experience and be so lucky to hang out with you and your family????

  68. So fun! I entered myself and my husband! I have sort of a random technical question.. How do you get your high quality pictures from your camera to your phone to share on social media? Do you do the traditional upload from camera to computer and then send photos to your phone via email? Or is there a short cut that you use? Thank you!! 🙂

    1. Hi Caitlin, I’ve found uploading them to your computer then emailing them is best. Makes it easier to brighten up the picture to your exact picture settings too 🙂

  69. Also ps this post is WAY too cute, I am buying those gloves ASAP before this snow melts.

  70. UGH. Dying to win this one!!!! You guys are so awesome. I entered – my Instagram is @rachaelburgessmusic…. 😉 <3 xo

  71. I LOVED THIS. Amber, you are STUNNING and these pics of you and David are adorable!!! I love how your red lips pop against the white of the snow and your colorful mittens and blonde hair! So beautiful!!

    You and David are the SWEETEST to host such a generous giveaway for your readers and fans!!! I will be praying I win, because I have passionate hobby for photography, and blogging (when I can find the time! lol) I would love to learn any tips from you two!!! xxoxo


  72. I loved the photos of the two of you!! No kids reminded me when you posted pictures of you and David in your honeymoon and your solo trips!
    Congrats on your 1 million followers!!!

  73. Hi Amber! I just wanted to comment on here and say what an inspiration I think you are too not only women your age who have children and husbands, but also younger ladies like myself! I’m nineteen and I’ve been watching you on YouTube and following your blog for a while now. You seem so sweet and amazing, and also look like you are an amazing mother! Congratulations on 1 million followers that is such a huge accomplishment and I think the give away you are doing is so generous and truly amazing! Whoever wins is going to be one lucky person????

  74. Ohmygoodness these are like the cutest pictures of you and David!!! Love them! Your mittens paired with your adorable mittens and beautiful blonde hair is STUNNING!! So in love with it all!!!!! xoxoxoxo


  75. Entered! I would love to win this for my best friend and I–my fiancé. 🙂 He has never been to NYC and I’d love the opportunity to bring him! Happy 1 million!! 🙂


    Suzanne Toth

  76. That looks like so much fun! I’m jealous of all the snow you east coasters got!

  77. Hi Amber! I’m Fiona from Boston!! You have the most beautiful family! The kids are the cutest!! You inspire me more and more every day!! 🙂

  78. I was having a similar conversation with my sister about getting out and about without your kids. It’s important to make some time, but it can be tricky to organise.

    Good luck picking someone for your NY trip! I don’t know how you guys will pick, there are soo many comments!

  79. I entered and my fingers are crossed! My bestie has never been to NYC and it would be such a treat if we could hang out! We live in two different states now and haven’t seen each other in awhile! We are going on 27 years as besties, I can’t believe it! Your mittens are too adorable, so colorful and cute Amber! xoxo

  80. I love these pictures of you two enjoying the snow! Those fur hoods on your coats look gorgeous!! And girl, I can’t believe this was your first night without the kiddos! That’s amazing. You two are obviously amazing parents — and deserve a little getaway just the two of you!! No one judges you for that (or at least they shouldn’t!!).
    I was so excited when I saw your insta post about the giveaway you and David are doing. How fun!! I admitted to my husband a few weeks ago that I’ve always kinda dreamed of starting a blog, and he’s been so encouraging. And he knows you are my total inspiration – so I would love love love to come to NYC with him and meet you two amazing people and your beautiful babies 🙂 crossing my fingers!! xoxo

  81. Amber and David! I already commented and tagged a friend on Instagram but I just want you to know I’ve been following you for about a year and I’ve gotten so many people hooked on your blog, youtube, and instagram! When people ask me how I do my hair, I always send them a link to your videos. I would LOVE to meet you and your sweet family and get advice from you guys! I have a hair and makeup business – even if I’m not chosen for the trip I would love for you to just take a peek at my website and some of my work. I’m also in a photography class so that I can have a lifestyle blog similar to yours. You’re an inspiration for beauty and lifestyle! Thank you!! Best wishes for everything in the future.

  82. Amber, you guys are so fun and I love seeing all your family adventures! I hope I win but if I don’t will you and David please, please do an ebook for blogging and photography? I’d buy it 🙂 Not that you don’t already have enough to do, traveling, new baby, toddler, working, and spending time with your hubby. Haha! Thanks for sharing your adventures!

  83. Im so happy you and David are doing this giveaway! That is so generous! My bestie Allyson and I have been following you forever and adore your blog/vlogs and hair tutorials! This would be a dream!! Keeping our fingers crossed till Friday!????

  84. I’m sure it was nice having some alone time away from the kiddos

  86. I’m so glad you and David had some alone time! I entered the giveaway and I hope I get the chance to hang out with you guys! Also I love the Miami vlog!

  91. I really love how much your blog is about your family! Of coarse we all love to look beautiful but I love that ur all about your kids! So inspiring! I would love to be a successful blogger one day and seeing how successful you are motivated me so mich!

  92. Spending time with just me and my hubby is the best! I always look forward to it! 🙂 This giveaway sounds so fun! I entered 🙂 Congrats on a million followers! That is so awesome!

  93. Such an amazing gift to give! I tagged my sister, we are turning 21 in April! How exciting would it be to have two days in NYC!

  94. The end of the vlog with him sitting in the sand looking out at the water for a couple minutes melted my heart! I died! That was sooooososo cute. My fiancé and I would love love love to win your give away trip!!!

  95. Hi Amber, how are you:)
    I love the idea, and this is so nice of you but what if do not have an instagram account ? 🙁
    I love your blog and love your family. Ps. You are a beauty inside and out.

  96. so that is? you just travel a take picture? with so much makeup? what kind of exemple are you for your kids and another ladies?

  97. What a generous giveaway! Congrats at reaching 1 million followers. I love the style ideas you give as well as pictures of your sweet family. It’s fun to see the amazing trips you take as a family as well as the simple weekends you have. It’s so neat that you do include the kids on all your trips as you guys are building amazing family memories but you and your husband definitely should find a time as Rosie gets older to have a more dates and a trip together. Your children seeing your love and relationship as a priority will learn the importance of that as well.

    It would be so fun to visit NYC! I’ve never been! I’ve also never been on a vacation since having my 3 kids and a few day trip would be an awesome break (although I’ll miss them like crazy)! It would be fun to meet you and your beautiful family! I’m not into blogging myself but I’d love tips on photography just so I can capture beautiful pictures of my family! Oh and of course I’d love for you to braid my hair!!

  98. I was soo excited when I saw your giveaway I’ve been following you for Years! I saw all the snow warnings for new york, Now it looks like up north canada

  99. So that is ? You just travel and take picures? That ‘s your way to live ? What kind of exemple are you for your kids and another ladies?

  100. Hi Amber and family:) I am 14 years old and I am from Iowa. Me and my friend, Erica are obsessed with watching your YouTube videos and checking out your blog! You are our inspiration and we hope to be like you someday! We love getting to see your cute family photos (especially of Atticus and Rosie)! It has also been our dream to visit New York someday, let alone get to visit the city and see you! We have entered your contest and are hoping that we will be able to look back someday in our lives and say that we had the chance to meet you! I think it would be so much fun just to hang out and see the city with you and your family! thank you so much for everything 🙂 xoxo -Grace (our instagrams are @gracegudenkauf and @emaehoff)

  101. I love this idea for reaching 1 million!! And, congrats! You totally deserve it. Reaching 1 mil at the time Rosie was born is totally not a coincidence, she’s so adorable! <3 🙂

  102. You guys are so generous! It would be an incredible experience to meet you, and your family!

    I would absolutely love some blogging + photography tips from you – Maybe in the future, you could do a post or something on it! I’ve stalked your blog pretty far back, and it’s amazing to see how much you’ve improved and grown as a blogger and just as a woman in general. I just started blogging, and I can only dream to have your success some day! You’re definitely an inspiration, Amber! Something to be proud of.

    – Amanda

We’re a couple of Colorado girls that would love to meet you in the Big Apple!

  123. Looks like so much fun!! It’s so hard to get away and actually enjoy your time away from the kiddos. We live in Dallas, TX and we had to go to San Antonio one night for my husbands work so we left our daughter with her nana and the whole time I wanted to go home and hold her!! I also forgot my pump which was a total nightmare so I was sad and in pain.. And it was just ONE night!! I think I could do it now but I don’t know for sure.

I have loved following your blog for the last couple of years! XOXO

  129. I’m so glad you two finally got some alone time! You are such champs about always being with your kids, but as a mom, I know it can be tough always having to take kids along on dates or even having a convo without getting interrupted! Haha. Very happy to see you two happy. xo

    You, your blog and your instagram inspired me to also start blogging. I did not started yet but it would be great to get some tips! (I will start this summer, when I go to Nicaragua and after that to New Zealand)

    My boyfriend also likes to takes photos with his camera and we both follow you! It is really fun to see what you do and get new tips or ideas. I also comment on instagram because it would be great to meet you!

    I’m looking forward for your next photos and wish you and David more often togetherness (even though your kids are solo sweet and beautiful)

    xo Charlotte

  138. What a wonderful giveaway! Entered and thank you for doing this – you are the first bloggers I have seen do this and it is so kind. Have a wonderful day in the snow (if it’s still around!) and enjoy your babies…A vacation for you and David is so needed – marriage needs that time but I know how hard it is when you have little ones!

  139. Yaaay! I entered the giveaway!
    And I totally agree, leaving the kids is soooo hard, but every married couple need some time away to just re-connect! 🙂

  140. Amber this is an AMAZING giveaway! you had me at “braid your hair for it”!! I entered on your insta, me and my sister are HUGE fans!
    Lovely pics as always 🙂 XO

  141. I am seriously sooo excited for this giveaway!! It’s so generous of you guys! I can’t decide which part is the best: the photography/blog tips, the spa day, or the hair braiding! 😀

  142. I don’t have IG but would totally come to NY with my friend to have my hair braided! Any other way to enter?

  143. Maybe if I post here and on Insta well get more of a chance 🙂 Amber braiding my hair with my bff=life complete! hahah

  144. Amber,
    You are so sweet! I will never get tired of telling you this, but you are so inspirational and amazing. Thank you for all that you do! I am sure whoever gets picked will have the time of their lives with you and your family! You are my biggest inspiration and it’s because of you that I started my blog and have been planning everything that I am, so thank YOU for just being such an incredible role model. My boyfriend (who I said I would take with me to NYC) and I aspire to be like the both of you, spread positivity and love.


  145. Hi amber and David! I just wanted to let you guys know that I LOVE following you guys on Instagram. you guys are doing a wonderful job with all of you beautiful pictures! keep up the good work!

    XO MariePascale

  146. Heck, I’ll pay for everything myself just so you can braid my hair! Haha

  147. The right way to say thank you! I adore how personable and real you are Amber, keep it up with your cute fam and we can’t get enough of you guys <3

  148. This is the ultimate giveaway! I love NYC. I commented on your instagram post (I may or may not have commented a few times, ha! I hope that is ok and not against the rules to enter). My fiancé and I are the same age as you guys and have a daughter so you and your family are kind of like an inspiration for us. It would be awesome to meet you both! We don’t get snow down here in Tampa, even though Aubrey keeps wishing for it. Congrats on 1 million followers, that is HUGE. Keep doing what you’re doing, you guys are so great and the kids are the cutest!


  149. I want to enter! I’ve been dying to go to New York but I’d want to bring my husband and I’d have to bring my five month old son cause just like you I don’t want to go on a vacation without my baby ????

  150. I wrote this on your Instagram but I think this is a great giveaway. Probably the most appealing one I’ve seen from any blogger.

    Hope you guys get your alone time. It’s needed! You guys are husband and wife on top of being a mom and a dad!

    PS: As a Canadian, I’m super pleased with your choice of Canada Goose. I love my Trillium Parka in Black. Been with me 1+ years and going strong.

  151. These are the sweetest pictures – so glad you were able to enjoy a little quality time just the two of you! And in that dreamy snow no less – what is it about snowy walks with husbands that make them the best things ever?! I think they are even better than walks on the beach!

    Your giveaway is about the coolest thing I have ever seen a blogger do and have my fingers all tripled crossed hehe. I met you twice last year and the girl crush deepened because you were everything I thought you’d be and more and meeting David would be the cherry on top! You guys are precious!

    xo Mary-Katherine |

  152. Oh nooooo, you’re wearing Canada Goose! Did you know that your coat’s hood was made with real coyote fur? The wild coyotes are cruelly trapped in Canada and left to starve for days before the trapper comes back and kills them for their fur. So upsetting because there are so many faux fur alternatives that are equally warm that don’t harm animals for fashion’s sake. (Read more about Canada Goose’s coyote fur trade here:

    1. Omg, how awful. Thank you for sharing this information so we know to look for faux fur clothing.

  153. Congratulations on your 1M followers, such an incredible achievement and so well deserved. I found your IG and blog whilst I was pregnant (our babies are about 9 days apart) and I’m so glad I stumbled across your IG one day, you’re one of my favourite bloggers and your children are just adorable. I’ve entered the giveaway but couldn’t tag my partner as he doesn’t have an account but I would take him if I won. We have always wanted to go to NYC and getting blogging tips from you would just be brilliant!

    Congratulations once again, and as alway, beautiful photographs!


  154. Hi Amber, I’m from Honduras and I’m 20 years old. I found your account on Instagram and I just couldn’t help not loving it!!! At first I didn’t follow you, but I would always (almost daily) lookup for you to see if you had posted new stuff???? I just wanted to say that you’re so sweet and gorgeous, and you have such a beautiful family. I love your youtube braid tutorials, I’ve been really inspired to practice doing braids haha! I left a comment on the giveaway picture, I’m dying to win it???? It would be such a dream come true to meet you someday❤️ Lots of love and hugs from lovely Honduras! -Gaby

  155. What kind of camera do you guys use? Love your blog!!


  156. That’s the best giveaway ever!! My twin sister and I both have young kids, and we love to follow your adorable family! We always talk about starting a blog and that would be so so fun to meet you and ask you questions about blogging 🙂

  157. such a nice idea!! what if the person i want to bring (husband) doesn’t have instagram because he is an old man in a young man body??? haha

  158. I entered the give-away last night! Best give away ever!!! The snow looks so pretty, wishing for some down south (fingers crossed). You and David should go to Costa Rica ! It is so beautiful.

  159. Hi Amber! I love all you pitures with your family! I enjoy so much wacthing all you videos, I am looking forward to the one in Miami! 🙂 I already comented on instagram picture, your idea is great, meeting you guys has to be so fun.
    You are so sweet and beautiful, such an inspiration! 🙂
    I bet once you have kids it is kind of hard to get some time alone with your partner, but once you get it, enjoy it! 🙂

    Lots of kisses and enjoy the snow! xoxo

  160. I would seriously die if I won this ( okay maybe not die ) But oh my this would be incredible, my husband and I are both in school and working so a two day get away would be a dream!! especially to New York one of both of our dream places to visit!! also, I’ve been following your blog for like 2 years so to meet would be so awesome!!! 🙂

  161. Super cute photos! It’s so good to make time with your spouse a priority! Looks like it was a happy time together. 🙂 those bright and crazy mittens brought a smile to my face!

  164. Hi Amber, hope all is well with you today 🙂 you are seriously the best.. When i saw your Instagram post I instantly got so excited and thought “wow, she is so nice and caring toward all her followers.” Even though I’ve said that before haha. Anyways, you and David are the cutest couple ever!! And love your multicolored mittens 🙂 xoxo

    Stephanie Spring

  166. I love parents who go out and enjoy the snow. If you love the snow EMBRACE IT!
    There is nothing wrong with parents wanting a night without their kiddos, it is well needed sometimes.
    Looking forward to the vlog!
    Have a terrific week and enjoy the snow, who knows when it will all melt away 🙂

  167. Amber, I think it’s amazing you and David are doing this. You are the sweetest, most genuine person and that’s why I love following your blog. You are beautiful on the outside (obviously), but it’s your inner beauty that really shines through. That’s what makes you such an inspiration.
