Hi.

Welcome, friends! This here slice of the Internet revolves around lattes, bookshelves, Pinterest, Emily Henderson, white wine spritzers, China, brass anything, passports and my sweet family. Grammar and important worldly events? Not so much. Consider yourself warned.

Pure Unadultureated Awesomeness

Pure Unadultureated Awesomeness

There are seriously so many amazing and awesome things in this world of ours. Think about it: Coffee, Egyptian cotton, freshly fallen snow, HGTV, color runs, babysitters, funnel cakes…the list is endless. But what happens when so many awesome things collide in one fun-filled 5 day excursion to Thailand?

Pure happiness, that’s what.

So what made it so awesome? Let me provide you with a pictorial essay:

  1. Fresh Air

Delicious Thai food delivered to your room (no picture as I am somewhat opposed to taking pictures of my food, mostly because it prohibits me from stuffing my face right away).

  1. Tropical plants and flowers

Feeling the baby inside you wiggle and squirm and knowing that the next vacation we take, we’ll be a family of four.
