- Rosie in the first pic haha. And her poor forehead - she fell. And her mouth was covered in raspberry juice from eating raspberries!
- I love farmer's markets.
- We ate at the same restaurant every day because it was so good and every time we ordered Gratin de Crozet every time. Crozet pasta is pasta cut into tiny squares! It is baked into a casserole with cream, cheese, ham, and butter. It is soo good. Here is a recipe for it, if you want to try it at home.
- I love to visit new places but I also love the feeling of visiting somewhere that feels familiar.
- We stayed at this airbnb which ended up being so great. It was cheap and right in town.
- This dress is in my top 3 for favorite dresses I have ever owned.
- After this we went up to our room and changed into swimsuits and spent the rest of the day on the lake! We rented a paddle boat and paddled out to this giant slide that is in the water. It is so big that people fly off the end of it because you get going so fast. Atticus really wanted to do it though -- I was sooo nervous and probably wouldn't have let him but David said he could sooo he did haha and he loved it. Him and David went down together so that made me feel better.
- Rosie is sitting next to me and keeps pointing to the picture of her and David and saying "DADA!!!! DADA!! DADA!"
- I go to NYC tomorrow and I cannot wait.
- I only worked out twice on our trip which isn't a lot compared to my normal routine.. so when I got back home and did a few really solid workouts it made me sooooo sore. Like can't lift my arms.
- Started watching Vikings and I like it -- again the hair.
- When we got down to the farmer's market I realized I forgot my sunglasses - as soon as I said "I forgot my sunglasses!" David was already running back up (it is 4 or 5 flights of stairs up to the airbnb). Then we started walking and I saw flowers I wanted to get for our host and said they would look so cute in that backpack I brought so again David leaves before I could even say another word and grabs it. He never complains about having to do anything like that and loves to do it for people. Nothing ever "inconveniences" him. If I forget something or want something he jumps right up and wants to get it for me. I think its so sweet.

Hi Amber, I know it’s a long shot you’ll see this, but I am a longtime reader and I was a student when you posted this. I saw the the photos and thought, that’s my dream dress! It was wildly out of my price range at the time, but it stuck in my mind as what I would treat myself to once I had accomplished my academic and professional goals. Now as a grown person who has and wants to reward herself, I’m on the hunt for a lovely twirly full dress like this, casual enough to wear everywhere – do you remember the brand by any chance?? I don’t expect to be able to find this exact dress, but I would like to check out the brand to see what they have now – and maybe the brand of that light blue one from your BFB Hair Eiffel Tower shoot? Sadly the link is 5 years old so it just redirects to the Shopbop main page. Anyway, any help would be gratefully appreciated, and thanks for being a sweet and entertaining part of my path all these years 🙂 how precious is baby Ro?!
Magnificent Photos are the backpack baskets and the French Baskets brand?
The flower backpack! I die!!!! Beautiful!

Are you not on snap chat anymore? I miss seeing your snaps :/
Hi Amber, Just wondering if you had restaurant recommendations in Annecy, you mentioned you ate at the same place everyday and my family & I are traveling there this month and wanted to try that pasta dish (looks delish). This looks like the most adorable family trip!
That back pack is everything! Love the flowers and you also look amazing in red!
So I’ve been folowing your blog for a few months now…..And the last few entries sounded different then the usual. I looked a bit closer and noticed they were not actually written by you. (Amber) I must say I found it a little odd to see someone else named Amy writing the blog posts. It’s just not the same. It seems that your blog is what it is because you are are who you are. The secret to barefootblonde is Amber Fillerup…..no offense to Amy! Just an opinion:):)
This is too cute! I love all the scenery! Gorgeous!

Awww the part about David going back to the Air Bnb to fetch your glasses without you asking was my favorite! So inspiring. Always inspired by you two and the love that you have for one another.
You are such an inspiration! Atticus and Rose are very blessed to have you as a mother 💕 that was very sweet of david!
#12 – that is so sweet of David! That’s amazing. Not every man is like this though. What a catch 😉 xoxo M
So gorgeous! 🙂
This location is out of a fairy tail and your dress is so adorable!!! All the flowers there are gorgeous…. Love it!! xoxo Missy
Poor Rosie. 🙁 Your dress and sunnies lokk amazing. Your pics make me want to visit Annecy NOW.
Annecy looks like an absolute dream! And I love your dress and sneakers!
That first photo for Rosie is soooo cute! I’m in love with her little face, and your dress is amazing. I need to see Annecy one day, it seems so amazing and beautiful.
What camera and lens do you use !?!?
I LOVE your dress and sunnies! They both compliment you so well! And the first pic of Rosie is priceless!!! Happy Saturday gorgeous babe and good luck in the Rebecca Minkoff show, I’m sure you’ll kill it!
LOL! Number 12. Where can I find myself a David?
Amber, you are a dream! You look like a classic beauty in these photos. Your David sounds wonderful – you two created the perfect little family! xx
no. 12 is my absolute favorite. Your love for each other is so evident, and your children are lucky to have parents that adore each other so dearly. Also, you were right about the flowers in the backpack 😉
OMG Rosie is so precious, but when did she get so old?! She looks like a mini grown woman here I can’t believe it
What brand are your sneakers?
Ahh Rosie is so gorgeous, I love her little dress! Your dress is beautiful too Amber, I can totally see why it is one of your all time favourites!

What you have in David is something special. My Dad is like that and I’m hoping to end up with someone like that. Someone who is not inconvienced by other people. http://thefullcolorlife.co/five-ways-come-trends/
Ahhh you guys are all so precious!! I too love exploring new places, but love returning to a few of our favorite places for familiarity. I love returning to a restaurant and being remembered by the staff- it makes me feel like a local 🙂 Can’t wait to travel with our growing babe.

Love the dress you are wearing!
That dress is incredible – definitely one of my favorites too. And I’m not surprised at all that you are into the hair in Vikings. It’s incredible! I just finished up the last season available and its sooooo good.
This looks like so much fun! Love your hair up like that & LOVE your dress!!
What a Gem that David is😊 You two are so cute together
David is so sweet. I feel like ever since I started following you it’s been obvious that David is a great husband who goes above and beyond. I love following you guys. 💖

These pictures are so gorgeous! Do you have a tutorial for this bun??
Like a movie set! The city looks unreal! Gorgeous photos😊
Rosie is so cute with her hair in that bun! My daughter is the same age and she still almost bald! So I’m always loving Rosie’s hair! Also, that’s so sweet of David to always run back for you. Is the D.C. Pop up still happening? I’ve been looking out for news on it.
Amazing photos! I cannot believe how big the kids are getting, they are so beautiful. Your trips always looks so awesome, I cannot wait for our next vacation!
Hey amber! Im 24 and my dream is to move to Hawaii. I bought a one-way ticket and leave soon but Was wondering if you have any tips for living on the north shore? I’ve been a nanny for 5 years (graceminasian.com) and need help finding connections in the north shore!
You remind me so much of Audrey Hepburn in this post!

Awe David seems so sweet, I love your dress so pretty!
I have read your blog for about 3 years now, and have never once commented. I am from Ireland, in the Northern part (not too far from where you once visited!) and I just suddenly felt like telling you that your posts always make me so happy to both see and read. Your photographs are always so beautifully taken, your outfits are always styled so well, but reading a little about what you did or some of your thoughts is always my favourite part because you always seem like such a positive spirit and it lifts my day to read about your life (that must sound weird!) I find your family to be just the sweetest thing I have ever seen, and your husband always seems so supportive. Your children are the cutest, and I have loved also watching your vlogs from when you lived in NYC. I realise this must seem like such an out of place comment, but for being such a long-time reader I wanted to let you know how much I really look forward to a new post. Sending much warmth to you, Amy xo
Such a chic and ultra stylish mom with a super sweet mini fashionistas! 🙂 Beautiful photos!!!
soo cute! I just love her ! Daria
I love that dress and that backpack! There is a similar one I have my eye on from Mur Lifestyle! It looks perfect against that cute backdrop! Also Rosie’s face covered in raspberry is so great! haha!
You got yourself one amazing hubby ☺️
I can see why that dress is the top 3 you own! It suits you perfectly! And that backpack is so cute and perfect for days at the farmer’s market!
That first picture of Rosie is perfection! Gorgeous just like her mama.
