Spring Break

Taking Spring Break as an adult is so different than it was when I was a teen or in my early 20s… Instead of heading to the nearest beach we take time to get in a mini trip in to see family. ✈️ This season of our lives is so busy that it’s really not even feasible to take more than 3 days to go anywhere, so when we get the opportunity we want nothing more than to spend quality time with each other, or the ones dearest to us. Last week we finally got the chance to meet our sweet new niece and go back to the place my husband proposed. ❤️ We had dinner at our favorite restaurant and enjoyed the cityscape where he popped the question 7 years ago. 💒

[Rittenhouse Rye is my new favorite whiskey – it’s like drinking everything enchanting about a spice market!]

[A little glimpse of the view I had during his proposal. It was freezing cold but I was so excited I didn’t notice!]

[I’m certainly a bit biased, but don’t you think she darling for only being 3 weeks old? She’s already smiling involuntarily!]

What are your favorite things to do when you finally have a few days to breath?


Things I Love Thursday // Visiting Huntsville

It’s no secret I really love my home town… the people, the weather, the shops and the fact that *most* of my family and close friends still live there — Families come and go but it’s amazing how often they move back to Huntsville, Alabama! After living away from the US for the past 3 years and not knowing where we might move next I would *still* be fine with eventually making it back to Dixie Land. It’s so hard to explain… the sunshine is warmer and the rain is fresher… you’d just have to be here to get it.
