As of yesterday, Rowan is 3 years old. What the what?!? I can't believe it. We took her to the Disney store to pick out a princess dress and shoes and then partied it up last night. We wanted to keep it simple this year so we only had Derek's brother's family over for pizza, cake and presents and just used decorations that we pretty much already had. As you can see, Rowan is super into pink, princesses and fairies right now so that's what's up.

We've had some awesome little adventures over the past couple of months and most of them included the beach, music and friends. I dig it. As for what's coming up next: Rowan's 3rd birthday(?!), a friend's baby shower, Halloween (my fav) and who knows what other shenanigans after that. I'll keep you posted.

$6 Pool

Thanks, $6 pool, for entertaining my toddler for hours on end. Sometimes it's gorgeous outside but I just don't feel like leaving the house. You + a good Pandora station + iced coffee + this ladybird made for a pretty sweet morning. Let's do it again sometime soon. - Me.

A Day In The Life

I filmed these videos one day a couple of weeks ago but am just now getting around to compiling them. This is just a little peek at what a typical weekday looks like for us.

You know those moments where you feel like your day to day life is robotic and mundane but then you look back at all of your pictures from only the past month and realize you've had lots of great little adventures? There's nothing wrong with the simple life. You just have to recognize all the little ways you've made that simplicity "more." I think we're all pretty spoiled. That's the real problem here.
