Ahh I had the best weekend unplugged with David's side of the family for Thanksgiving! The kids ran wild with cousins and slept like a rock at night. It was so fun. David, the kids, and Chauncey drove home and I took an uber to LA for some fun meetings I get to go to tomorrow with my manager! Meetings for the blog and for Barefoot Blonde Hair!! Sometimes I am reminded how much I love my job and I kinda love meetings like this. Especially when I get to meet with brands that I have loved for a long time. PS speaking of BFB Hair's sale ends today!!! So go to our site to order extensions 15% off!
These pics were from Thailand if you couldn't tell! Tessa and I were both wearing Spell by Byron Bay which we didn't plan actually... we both just love that brand! I have learned from traveling with people that you always want to pick people who are super laid back and go with the flow.. that is why Tessa is so nice to have on trips because she is legit down for anything and doesn't fuss about a thing! I love low maintenance people because you really can't be high maintenance when doing big adventures. There are going to be 20 hour layovers and 17 hour flights or really sweaty cab rides with no AC or whatever it is. I have actually really noticed that traveling has made our kids really patient. I think so much good comes from traveling and I am so happy our family has been so lucky to do so many adventures together. I really can't describe it but I think big adventurous trips bond you (which I am sure a lot of you have experienced too!) - whether you are going with a friend or a family member or like us with my husband and kids. After a trip don't you talk about those memories for years and years and always feel closer to that person? That is how it is with the family and I always feel that much closer to them. So grateful for these last few years getting to see the world with them.
Now that Atticus is in school we are slowing down traveling a lot! He has the sweetest teacher and speech therapist who are so good with him. He has grown leaps and bounds this year and I love getting to see his growth. I am feeling extra gushy about the kids right now because of Thanksgiving and the amazing weekend we just had together so I won't get started but just really love them. I am excited for a change of pace for us and to have a year that is a bit slower. I need to learn to accept a slower pace. Anytime I see a free day on my calendar and I am instantly planning some sort of outing for the family. I want to make it my goal to go s-l-o-w. While still doing lots of fun stuff along the way ;)
