Ohhhh Spa Laaa Laaa

Today was amazing. (period) That's the only word for it. We got up at 6am (not so amazing), put on our sweats then went and got coffee and headed down to the Montage Resort in Laguna. Chris had a meeting for work there today. I dropped him off and spent the morning and early afternoon with grandma and grandpa. We had a yummy breakfast, went Christmas shopping and came back for lunch. Then I was off to the Montage! His work is..amazing. There are so many perks with working at a small firm. They provided such a beautiful day for everyone. Including breakfast, lunch and a massage at the resort. My sweet husband donated his massage to me, totally surprised me. After his boss heard how sweet he was to do that for me they gave him 2 massages so he got to get one too! We spent 5 hours at the spa. It is a very special place to us as that is where we got engaged! I totally relived that day and wished Jess was with me again. The girls remembered me and treated me like a celebrity, I'm not kidding. It was hilarious and oh so fun! We are apparently the only couple who has ever gotten engaged at their spa. Awesome! They were going crazy over Chris, thinking he is too good to be true after all he has done for me. But it's true, he is the best husband God created! :) I got to meet my lady again who did my massage as Chris proposed. They gave us champagne and took pictures of us. It was the most peaceful afternoon/evening that I have ever experienced.
Oh and the best part was I met Chris' boss and all of his co-workers in my robe right after my massage. What a great first impression. Greasy hair, smushed face, jell-o legs. It's definitely a small and intimate office. Love them all. So thankful for his new job!!! The Lord's timing is PERFECT, don't you ever forget that...

we're a little relaxed, can you tell?

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…
