• What Honeymoon is Right for You + A Lovely Vacation for ME

    Hi lovelies!  I’m headed to my brother’s wedding this weekend (probably my last time as a bridesmaid and Charlie’s first time as a ringbearer – can’t wait to see him in his little suit!) and then I’m taking a bit of time off to spend with family.  I have some great guest posters lined up for you.  I hope you enjoy reading their posts as much as I have.  There are some DIY’s, cocktail recipes, inspiration boards, and more!  Leave them some love if you have a minute.  And if you want to see Charlie as a ringbearer (probably not, but indulge me a little) or want to see me be a tourist with my sweetheart in NYC, be sure to follow along on instagram.

    Oh, I’m also on Bloglovin now. Follow my blog with Bloglovin, especially now that Google Reader is going away!  That’s how I’ll be keeping up on my blog reading.  And I’m making an effort of finally getting to know google + too.  So be sure to find me there as well.

    Now, are you planning your honeymoon but aren’t sure what type of honeymoon is right for you?  Not sure if you want to go sightseeing in Paris or lounge on a beach in Jamaica?  This infographic quiz from Phase Eight may come in handy.

    what honeymoon is right for you?
    Since this weekend is Mother’s Day, tomorrow I’m sharing my birth story. It is a long and sometimes rough story, but it has a happy ending. I read a lot of birth stories when I was pregnant, and they helped me get mentally prepared for the possibilities, but eventually I went overboard and they started making me anxious and I had to cut myself off. I don’t want to scare anyone, so don’t read it if you scare easily, but just know I’m only sharing in an effort to let you know you aren’t alone and if I can do it, you can do it!  And ask questions – I’m happy to answer anything in the comments or in an email.

      Going on a honeymoon especially during the touristy season can get really annoying sometimes, especially when you have to rush around with the other tourists, and not be able to get any quiet time with your partner. So on your honeymoon, i would suggest you to take it in a slow and relaxed pace. On my honeymoon with my husband, we went to Rome and Florence. We did all the regular sight seeing but it was getting quite tiring after a while. So on one of the days we just spend the day strolling by the parks in Rome, and had a bike tour with one of the locals in Rome. She then suggested us to try out dining with BonAppetour. They are a website where travelers can book meals with locals who invite travelers for a meal at their home. We loved it! It was fun, relaxed and a perfect end to our honeymoon. BonAppetour also has cooking classes with the locals, which I want to be trying out on our next vacation! Getting messy in the kitchen is actually very romantic!

    •  Can a person be your happy place? Because I'm pretty certain that Quincy is mine ☺️✨ #quincyrhys #thatdimpletho  This week was a rough one. I feel like I say that every week but this one really was. Today alone had me at my breaking point. All three of my kids seemed hell bent on driving me crazy. Quincy literally wouldn't let me put him down or leave the room without a major scream-cry fest. He rode around on the fuss bus allllll day. Tropical storm Calvin left destruction in his wake everywhere he went (if you follow me on snap/stories you got a little sampling but that was nowhere near the extent of it). At one point I went into a room away from my kids and sat in a chair and cried. Within three minutes one of them found me (of course) gave me a hug, and we were all better (except Calvin -- I think this is his permanent state ). This photo is my version of thinking happy thoughts. Bougainvillea vibes ✌️️✨

Not wanting to be outdone by your big bro. Cause look who's pulling himself up, so he can keep up  #quincysmilestones #calvinandquincy #lawdhelpme #charlieandcalsroomredo
