Yellow T, a quick Utah trip, and Spring I love you!

Struttin his step in his yellow T at the ripe age of 19 months.
I really feel like this should be to a JayZ song.

 Seriously my child. You and your skinny jeans kill me.

When you are as cool as Ryan, you get a "going away dinner" with these two before leaving to Utah for 10 days.

Oh the life you live little boy.

 We packed up the next morning and headed to the airport.
I really wish you could see our child truck through the airport with this thing.
You would die.

 Aaron was on Spring Break (which I'm convinced is close in happiness to Christmas morning)
He was able to come with us for 3 days before flying back for school.

 Delta cookies, you never fail us.

Utah was blissful.
I was in heaven being with my family.
With all that has happened in the last few months, it was the perfect boost of happiness.

I never thought I would say this,
but the airport no longer terrifies me flying alone with a baby.
We have come a long way and we make quite the flying duo.

Ryan and I kept ourselves so busy while we were gone that we got home to an empty house and didn't know what to do with ourselves!

However, after a week of being away from each other, this was a really really happy reunion for us both.:)

Spring..... ohhhh Spring. 
Please come every day.
I'm so in love with you.
The beyond pretty green and low 70 degrees happiness.

I'm pretty sure my run this morning was as good as it gets!

Happy Friday!

  1. He is such a cutie! So glad you guys had a great time!

  2. Stop it with Ryan's yellow tee!!! He's too much, and is it Polo!?

    Happy Friday! xo

  3. Ok, one that trail is BEAUTIFUL! I am so jealous. I hate running, but if that trail was by me, you better believe I'd go running, okay maybe walking..haha.

    I'm not going to say I'm sorry about what happened to you, because you're probably tired of people saying that. However, my heart does go out to you and your sweet family. I have been following your blog for not too long, but I have just adored you along the way. You are such a sweet sweet mommy and a great wife. Seriously. Ryan is so so blessed to have you as a mama. I do believe one day you'll be able to hold that sweet baby of yours in your arms. But I do hope for you and Aaron to be able to experience having another baby on this earth when the time is right. You both are terrific parents. You're in my thoughts!

  4. That would be a adorable Jay z song. (not sure those two things go together, adorable and Jay z) but it works for me
