Celebrating Ten Years!

Waring and I went to Blue Ridge for our 10 Year Anniversary! We spent three days exploring, ZORBING, and living the camper life. This was the longest time that we had left the girls since Ella’s birth. We missed them, but had a great time just being us….which is where everything started ten years ago. I am so thankful for each passing year with this little family that God has blessed us with!

Summer Bucket List: Painting Pottery

For the last three years we have made Christmas Ornaments over the Summer. I have loved this little Summer Bucket List Tradition. Last year Ella was only a few weeks old and NOT amused. This year she was a bit more cooperative!

 

Trip Report: Spain

Our first trip to Europe with the girls proved to be magical and exhausting. Raising travelers is tough business and certainly NOT for the faint of heart! Waring and I were determined that we would raise our girls with wild hearts for exploring the world and a heart for learning and curiosity. Even though it isn’t necessarily¬†easy to take the two little nuggets around on all of the adventures, we hope that it instills in them a sense of adventure and perspective that allows them to see the world through the eyes of others and not just from their own fixed point on the globe.

 

Spain was everything we thought it would be and MORE. Here are just a few of the memories that we made along the way:

-Practicing our Spanish everywhere

-Churros, tapas, orange wine

-Beautiful beaches along Costa del Sol

-Bullfighting rings in Seville

-Rowboating in the Plaza

-Staying up late!

-Train rides

-Learning what a bidet is the wrong way…
