A little over a month ago Jacob and I went to Kauai to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary. Last time Jacob and I went to the islands together we were in high school and went to Oahu, so I was really excited for him to see Kauai. As you may remember I was just on Kauai and Maui in August, but Jacob did not come on that trip. My sister and her kids live on Kauai and we hadn’t seen them since our wedding so we were both so excited to see them!
Hello friends!! I am back state side! The past two weekends I was in Mexico with lots of work before, in between, and now. That is the positive and negative of being your own boss. I love setting my own hours and the flexibility, but sometimes it is dangerous! I defiantly have an issue with working “too much” and I am not very good about working my 8 or 9 hour days. Ask my husband, he hates it. I easily put in 60 + hour work weeks BUT I love it!
Switzerland has been a dream of mine for a VERY long time so when we planned our honeymoon I didn’t care what it took to get us there. Now looking back at that statement its pretty funny because I really did take whatever it took. Switzerland was by far the most expensive country of our trip, the most difficult to travel in, and the least amount of information on the web about. BUT it was totally worth it, even if the trip didn’t go as planned. Jacob and I had about 3 days in Switzerland and we packed it with zip-lining, toboggan rides, train rides through the alps, and a ton more! Unfortunately, the 3 days we were there it rained non-stop. Not the rain that you can adventure out it, NO it was a down pour where they cancel all events and excursions. The 3 days we were also there I got super super sick and couldn’t do much activity either. Needless to say we are DEFIANTLY going back to Switzerland (September 2017) so we can relive the dream again, haha. Let me tell you though, through the rain and clouds Switzerland is still one of the most beautiful countries I have ever visited. Here are the very few photos I was able to capture (yes my camera got soaked) and a quick travel diary vlog from the trip!
This past weekend Jacob and I snuck away for a weekend in the “snow”! We are so blessed to live in the beautiful city of Phoenix because we are only 4 hours to the beach in Mexico, 6 hours to the beach in California, and only 1.5 hours to the snow and forest in Northern Arizona. My mom planned a Christmas winter wonderland at their cabin for all the children to come up and enjoy (so nice)! Unfortunately we had missed the storm so there was just frozen water, really cold wind, and dirty snow pilled on people’s roofs. Nonetheless, we still had fun! We spent Saturday in the town of Flagstaff walking around shopping, finding last minute Christmas gifts, and even got a photo with a really nice but kinda creepy Santa Clause, haha. Sunday we went on a 6 mile hike, it was nice to breath in fresh air, but holy moly it was COLD! Overall the weekend was SO much fun and I CANNOT believe Christmas is in a few short days!! AH!
Here are a few photos from this weekend! The scarf around my neck is actually my great-grandmothers! She was a pretty stylish woman 🙂
