it's been fun.

We are on our 8th and final night here in Corona Del Mar. It has been an absolute blast and a joy to be able to take care of this beautiful home and gooshie animals. I am so in love with them, its going to be hard to leave them tomorrow. I'm just going to pack them in the Jeep and take them home to add to our crazy family.
Anyway, today was beautiful. Perfect weather, perfect everything! Chris and I slept in a little and then went and had a play day at the beach. After sunning ourselves for a while we went to Balboa to walk around the rest of the island we missed on Sunday and grabbed a bite to eat for lunch. We came back to the house to rest for a little bit and then spent the evening at Fashion Island. It was a much better experience that it was on Monday! We had fun shopping together, eating, picking out things for the house and just enjoying one each others company. There was a showing on the house this evening so that's why we left. -this house is for sale :( -
I think the sun took every ounce of energy out of us today so we were pretty much bums for the rest of the evening. We went to the park and took Lily for a nice run again, I'm going to miss getting all the exercise with her every night. We ended the night with another game of Skip-Bo (of course) and I actually won! Chris is over the game now-losing two nights in a row, now he knows how I feel! Lily sat outside with us while we played and the cats were going crazy that we left them inside, check out this hilarious clip. (this is what we have dealt with all week.)

I love that Lily face!!

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! They are a company out of Sweden and they make the most awesome Baby bottles.

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…
