Solvang, Day 1

We're here!! We left around 10:30 this morning and arrived in Solvang around 3:30 after stopping in Santa Barbara for lunch. It is so gorgeous up here! Chris and I are having the best time with eachother! It's such a different way of life here and so nice to just slow down for a couple days and enjoy each other and all the amazing things God has up here. We checked into our ever so fancy hotel, the King Frederick Best Western (ha!) We actually like it, it's in the smack down center of Solvang. Check out the sweet picture of the entrance to our room...118 baby.
We forgot that it's a long weekend and every single hotel is booked, including ours!

Once we got settled in we hit the streets and walked around all these little cozy quaint ourselves some coffee and walked and talked and just enjoyed each others company so much. Tonight we went to the Heidelberg Inn for dinner. It was this tiny little restaurant that had maybe 7 tables and was so yummy! For dessert we had aebleskivers which I have been trying to make at home. (their's are much better!)

It's 8:15 and we're whipped.
Tomorrow is going to be a great day!

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

TwistShake Baby

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby!

10 years..

It's been 10 years since I created southernatheart. 
10 whole years. 
I remember sitting in our little cottage in Southern California logging in and creating this blog like it was yesterday. 
I've always had a passion to write.  I have piles of journals from my teen years and early 20s.  Writing has been and still is therapeutic for my soul.  Whether it's pen to paper in a journal, a blog post or like the most recent years a post on Instagram.  It's how I express myself and my thoughts best.  Documenting life through the good times and hard. 

These past three years I've simply ignored my blog because I lost the desire and all the extra time to sit and write. 
Something stirred inside me recently and that was to log back in and get this thing going again. 
I don't know what it's going to look like, nor can I tell you what to expect here but we'll figure that out as we go. 
Exciting things are happening I expect this blog along with Instagram to be part of t…
