HAPPY DECEMBER! I cannot believe we are in the last month of 2019… are you ready for 2020? I am really looking forward to the New Year!
Eloise had her FIRST birthday on November 30th & I truly cannot believe we hit this milestone! Instead of having a big birthday party- Dex and I decided to take a family road-trip to Colorado and rent a nice Airbnb. My two sisters and their partners also came! From where we live, it took around 15 hours to drive to Carbondale, CO (which is super close to Aspen). The drive there we made a pit-stop in Utah at Arches National Park. It was unlike anything I’ve ever seen! Huge rock formations, it made me feel like we were in Star Wars land or something. haha!
We got to explore Snowmass & Aspen for one day and it started snowing like crazy! I was so excited to see snowy mountains, people skiing and snowboarding. Aspen is a gorgeous place and I would definitely go back.
It was so nice to spend quality time with my family, and just celebrate Ellie turning ONE! I swear it’s the weirdest feeling having a one year old. I feel like I just gave birth to her, how did time fly by so fast? It’s beyond bittersweet!
On our way back home, the drive was KILLER. We decided to stop back in Utah and visit Zion National Park. I’m so glad we did! Another gorgeous National Park with beautiful rocks, deer, and red cliffs. I’d love to explore more national parks in the future. But the rest of the drive home was brutal… I think driving 6 hours in a car is my limit!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I’m really looking forward to Christmas this year with the kiddos. We are having Christmas dinner at home, and I cannot wait for all the delicious food. Talk to you guys later!
