together

with christmas so early in the week this year, it made for a long weekend!! so we decided to get away after the holiday and head to the central coast, san luis obispo “slo county” to be exact. this was matteo’s first vacation, which made it even more exciting.  our little man did so good on the road,….he must be a natural. my mom use to call me a gypsy, so i may have given him a little of that traveler gene.

treethis tree was seriously amazing and the photo does no justice to it at all

bubblegum

they call this bubblegum alley and it’s exactly that. both sides of the alley were completely covered in gum on top of gum on top of gum. i’m talking like a couple inches thick here. it’s disgusting and awesome all at the same time.

pickings

just one of our tasty treats!

dancing

rolling hills

we toured a vineyard in paso robles and stumbled upon this amazing view

ribs

the weather there was kinda crazy. in the mornings and nights you would need full on winter coats with hats and scarves and gloves, and the days were warm and sunny. so warm in fact that we got to take matteo to the beach one day. we put his chubby little toes in the sand and let him feel the water, not to mention i finally got to break out the baby aviators which are just hilarious and ridiculous all at the same time.

now that we know this handsome boy travels so well, we look forward to more of these little weekend getaways. next time when we can actually go in the water though, cuz if this kid likes the ocean as much as he does the bath, then we’re in for a treat. and by then he’ll be crawling or walking and that means sand everywhere. i’m talking in the mouth and in all his yummy little rolls! the things to look forward too!!!

here we go 2014…..

hooray for 2014!!!

i’ve never been really good a keeping my new years resolutions,

so this year i’ve decided to focus more on

making mini goals for my self throughout the whole year.

sort of like makeovers for different parts of my life,

like bettering my soul, my family, my outlook on life in general.

i want to be more open-minded to change

and see only positive in everything and everyone.

so i guess that’s still pretty much a resolution, huh?

well i’ll try it out and let you know how it goes.

********

so many wonderful things happen for us in 2013,

the most obvious one being little matteo,

but something tells me 2014 is going to be pretty great too.

and so the adventure continues for us,

now just with baby included!!!

can’t wait to share them with you!

********

so happy new year friends!

make it a good one!

christmas 2013…..

2 Jan

santamatteo’s first christmas was a success!

even though he has no idea who santa is

and will never remember meeting him in this photo,

the season just wouldn’t be the same without

the jolly old man!

presents

these days we just buy gifts for the little ones

 and even though i know the kids don’t even notice the wrapping,

it’s still my favorite part. i love making all the packages pretty!

loves

the holidays felt different this year,

naturally all of our attention was focused on baby matteo

and celebrating our first christmas as a family.

i couldn’t help but to get excited thinking of

how we’ll spend our holidays from here on out,

making new traditions and

really feeling the magic that littles bring.

growing

matteo makes 5!

the family is growing fast and

my parents live for the grandkids.

i love seeing all the cousins together!

together

visiting friends is always fun too!

we’ve already have these two’s first date planned!

can’t wait for these two to play together.

********

i just love the holidays

and they always seem to just fly by so quickly.

next year will only get better though.

matteo will be one year old and

one year closer to understanding

all the joy the holidays bring.

********

we hope your holidays were as lovely as ours!
