We got back from our trip to Charleston about two weeks ago. We settled in, caught up on rest, and then prepared to kick off fall..our favorite time of the year. I want to do all the things.
It felt like it rained so much when we were home but we were ecstatic when the weekend gave us a beautiful few days. We did orchards, cider mills, pumpkin farms, and fall festivals. My heart is giddy for this season.
I’m so glad we got to share every part of our trip with you guys.. it was my favorite trip yet (for obvious reasons- Chesters first of many trips) it was so unforgettable and we are actually heading out for another trip to the mountains tomorrow. Before we set off west I wanted to share our very first video with you guys.
Guys, I have been finding myself in tears multiple times the past few days over Houston! It just breaks my heart that so many peoples lives are wrecked right now. It truly has made a pit in my stomach.
When I started this blog series of our time in Utah, I knew I wanted to save my favorite for last. Bryce Canyon is by far the most amazing place I’ve ever experienced. When we walked up to Sunrise Point that morning, tears filled my eyes and trickled down my cheeks. It was majestic and beautiful and serene. It was pure magic.
Let me throw something back for you.. .ten years ago if you would have asked me what I hoped my life looked like in ten years.. I probably would have said, standing in the kitchen that my husband and I live in, with a baby on my hip, in my barefeet. WHAT. Fastforward, ten years, here I am… While it mostly still looks different, it truly is a dream.
Although we haven’t mastered the art of packing for trips yet, we are still learning, I do feel like we have somewhat of a grasp on weekend packing. Whether we are running off to my in-laws or to the family farm, we try to be very light and organized, so we want to share some tips we have learned along the way.
