I have been put to shame over the past month and a half… by my husband’s stellar blogging rituals and my utter and complete absence. I have no excuse. My mind (and my typing fingers) have been elsewhere. But I’m here to redeem myself!
I have only little glimpses of recent happenings to offer… but my meager contribution is merely me gathering steam. Just you wait. I will be blogging more from now on!
was how we toasted to our ONE YEAR anniversary this past Monday! I can hardly believe a year has already passed since we were dancing on the rooftop of Santa Barbara’s Canary hotel with many of you. Oh the mind reels when I think of all that has happened and all that has changed since then. How different life was only a year ago. We have a date day coming up in addition, but Monday night we celebrated with take out thai food, a scrumptious seasonal brew (thanks Kelley!!), and a movie on netflix while the baby snoozed away in his crib. Married life has treated us well 😀
Mason and I also took a quick trip down to Orange County last week. Just for kicks. We had a blast hanging with the grandparents, the aunties, uncle and the cousins (Mason’s, of course). We took a couple walks to and from the Orange circle, Mason in the Ergo pack. First with cousin/neice/goddaughter Natalee, singing made up songs and holding hands across the streets. And then with my Ker Bear and Jules (who’s long awaited DC voyage was delayed yet again by a busted car), and talked about all manner of things from religion to Disney characters to OC architecture 😉 Good times girls. Good times. We even got in on a very belated Christmas celebration.
And photos can never quite capture the gorgeousness that we see with our own eyes… but I had to catch my breath right before I went to bed that night, because I really believe that my baby is among the most breathtakingly beautiful things that I have ever seen.
So now tonight, it’s time for all of us to sleep. Mason has a headstart on us. And Ruby spent most of the evening catching z’s in our bed while Mark and I hung out in the living room. So goodnight to everyone. Or good morning or afternoon, depending on when you read this.
And a couple more sweet pictures from today, just because.
….ps…. it blows my mind, that tomorrow, Mason will be SEVEN MONTHS OLD!
