Washington day 4

Monday with grandpa and grandma was very educational. We drove and drove some more all around town. Saw a lot of beautiful places and ate lots more good food. We slept in and then took them out to breakfast, it was one of their favorite places and we agreed. It was called the "Oak Table" and I'm not even going to tell you what I ate. All I can say was I blew grams and gp away! We drove around Sequim and then went to see their new RV which is awesome. Then we went onto Port Townsend which is this cute little quaint town on the water. We went to a little place called "Nifty Fifties" for lunch and did a little shopping. They took us to a little lavender farm. Before I go any further...lavender is HUGE up here in Sequim! They make lavender everything! Lavender coffee drinks, lavender ice cream, lavender bread, cookies, chocolates...you name it...yes, we have tried it. I'm not going to lie, I am not a fan of lavender in my food except....for these little lavender crisp cookies that Grammy got us. Mmmm delicious! We have a couple packs :) Last night we took them to this little Italian place for dinner and had just a wonderful time. They told story after story about my sweet husband and we laughed so hard that our stomach's hurt. I have learned so much about my man and even more about my new grandparents. They have been special to me since the day I met them but I have fallen even more in love with them. One thing I learned was that they like to party! We stayed up so late every night playing games, talking, laughing, crying, playing the piano and organ with grandma. I wish I could have captured every moment on film. It's been fun Washington.


beautiful.

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..

Friends. 
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…
