Hi guys, Happy 1st day of October. October is my favorite month because it’s my birthday month, and because Fall is in full bloom! Last weekend our family took a trip down to Marriott’s Newport Coast Villas for what we deemed to be our new spot for an annual family vacation. We LOVED it! When the East sister (and Roman + Fiona) come visit, it’s sometimes hard to relax and spend some qualitly time together (with work & school everyday)…so our little gettaway was exactly what the Dr. ordered! My favorite memories were: Eating my weight in sugar. I found my new favorite macarons at ‘lette, and cupcake at Sprinkles (<–First cupcake shop ever!!!! Owned by the famous Candace Nelson from Cupcake Wars). I also saw the most beautiful bakery/cafe EVER! Sweet & Saucy Shop is the kind of bakery I hope to have one day…even if it’s just in my house.
We went to Laguna Beach & caught some rays of sunshine and some waves. I LOVE the ocean SO much!…as I’m sure do you. When I was younger I used to think about how my life would turn out, and who we would marry and what our kids would look like. It’s so crazy that we are living out those dreams now! I am so thankful for how the Lord has come through and blessed our family. We are so far from perfect, but at the end of the day we love each other and accept each other’s wackiness. <3 At the end of our trip I felt like I was saying goodbye to summer as well as the East Coast family. It was bittersweet. I’ll leave you guys with my favorite four pictures of our trip!
