Over joyed to announce the arrival of our son, Chester Lee Crane, born March 8th, 2017 at 5:04pm, weighing 7lb3ozs and measuring 20 1/4”. The last few days have been more than blissful and exhausting. We are looking forward to soaking in this time as a family before Chase heads back to work. We will share his birth story hopefully really soon, but first, putting pen to paper. Thank you so much for your well wishes + love!
I can’t believe how close we are to meeting our little guy. We are 38.5 weeks & my body is definitely telling us that we will be a family of four in no time. While we’ve been so busy catching up from the crazy past month, we have finally finished the nursery + packed our bags for the hospital.
A few weeks ago I posted to Instagram + added a little caption about how I had been working way harder to keep up with blog posts and partnerships. Literally within a few days, the unexpected happen and here we are a few weeks without any new posts.
Before we catch back up with the Nesting Series, home updates, and some new brands we’ve been loving, I wanted to share what we’ve been up to.
First we talked food and coffee, then stores and tourist destinations and our last Seattle Travel Guide Post is my favorite yet! It makes me halfway sad that I‚Äôm done sharing this memorable trip with you!
There‚Äôs not too much to tell here, the pictures say it all (kind of) it‚Äôs kind of one of those things that even photos won‚Äôt do it justice, but hey, you‚Äôll get the idea! This was our absolute favorite day in the PNW! We plan to go back spend more of our time further North! I just picture our sweet baby all bundled up close to his daddys chest breathing in that fresh mountain air!
To add on to our Seattle Travel Guide, we wanted to talk about the typical ‚Äútouristy‚ÄĚ things we did. As well as a few shops we had to see! This was truly our first time traveling to a ‚Äúcity‚ÄĚ. Doing the touristy thing isn‚Äôt usually our deal but we decided we would spend one afternoon exploring the city in between the shops and places we were dying to visit!
Planning a trip to Seattle soon? If your not, find a flight and GO, soon! It was so amazing! We are already talking about heading back next fall with our sweet baby in tow. While we will do our next trip differently-spending more time out in the mountains and probably only one day in the city- we wanted to do a breakdown of our favorite places around town for good eats, treats, and coffee!
I am insanely thrilled to try something new this year that I saw someone else doing on Instagram! Chase and I usually sit down at the end of the year and look at our past goals/plans and see what worked and what didn’t. From there we plan forward for the year to come. At one point we had a five year plan and quickly had accomplished all of it within a year and half. I truly believe it was because of this exercise that we were able to do that.
