We snuck away to Asheville for my birthday weekend. We’d actually planned the trip twice before but moved it in the fall due to calling for bad weather and moved right after the holidays due to double pink eye for L.

Our sweet boy turned TWO this weekend and we had the best time! We had a small party with our parents, siblings and a few friends.

Okay, so we’re closer to 20 months as I write this but our likes haven’t changed much in 2 months time (or really even 6 months time). Trucks and books are still our favorites over here. It’s fascinating to watch this little guy with a new truck and how he examines everything about it, including… Continue reading 18 month update + what we’re loving
