As an adult, birthdays don’t seem to be as big of a deal as they were when we were littles. Unless it’s a “decade” birthday, parties are fewer and further between. Leisure time with my husband and mini is my idea of celebrating turning 36! We headed downtown and spent the afternoon on foot, and it was perfect. Our city has a fun event that happens every second Saturday of each month called Hit The Bricks. It’s held in the historic part of town, where the neighborhoods are still red brick roads. These areas are absolutely beautiful in the spring and they’re blooming with azaleas and dogwoods. Next year will be the 60th annual “Azalea Trails & Spring Flower Trail”– a tour of the historic homes and gardens on these quaint tucked away streets. So gorgeous! I definitely want to check that out.
We had a getaway to my favorite little haunted town for a belated Mother’s Day this past weekend! We didn’t get to do a lot on the “actual” day this year because Chris had been working mega overtime hours launching a new project. He made it up to me though! We used to visit Jefferson, Texas together before becoming parents and it’s been way too long since our last trip. I was so excited to show Olivia all of the things that we love about it.
I have had the best time planning every detail of our Disney trip so far, including what to wear! I don’t normally post about this kind of thing, but it was such a fun part of the process and I thought it would be helpful to some of you trying to figure out park attire. For the majority of our trip, we chose to wear Disney themed tees to pair with character greets and parks we’ve got scheduled for the day. We love Disney movies, but don’t normally sport the attire and we’re taking full advantage of it!
Our second visit to the Hope Outdoor Gallery did not disappoint! My bestie and I were in need of an updated photo sesh together and this place was the perfect backdrop. I’m obsessed with the endless walls of colorful street art. We got to explore the top section, unlike my first visit there because it was too rainy & muddy. Check out my last post to see how much it’s changed. There is always always something new and cool to discover here!
