Perfect weekend.

Chris and I are house sitting in Corona Del Mar for the week. We did this last year and loved it and now we're back! We have had the perfect weekend. Chris had to work a few hours on Saturday and snuck away early so we could enjoy the beach. We walked around Laguna and went to a yummy small family Italian restaurant for dinner. Chris took a hot tub while my feet dangled in the warm inviting water. 6 more months and I can go back in one! I begged Chris to stay home today and it wasn't too hard to convince him. We slept in and took Lily (the golden retriever) for a nice long walk around Balboa. Came home and took a heavenly nap then went to Little Corona and played around in the tide pools. It was the most gorgeous day!! Once we got home from the beach we came back and rested up a little bit more then went to Fashion Island for dinner, dessert and more walking! We spent some time in Barnes and Noble thumbing through baby name books looking for a boys name that we could both agree on. We now have a couple! Yippee! We're now back at this beautiful abode cozy and ready for bed. I'm so thankful that we have had this time together and that Chris is completely relaxed and ready for another insane week at the firm. Back to this beautiful day....we could see Catalina from the balcony of the house today. Picture perfect! I got an awesome picture of the sun going down behind Catalina and I will post it later when I feel like walking to the other side of the house to get my cord.

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..

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…
