Sweet little Lily moments

This past week as exhausting as it was, it was also really fun.

Lily is such a fun and energetic little person these days.

When at home, she is babbling like crazy, crawling all over the place, standing up holding onto everything and trying to walk.

When out, she is not as vocal but she is still the same little explorer like she is at home.

She is quite the curious little one. 😉

Sometimes I like to just stand back and watch her.

And of course take a few shots when she is completely not aware of the camera.

Have a great weekend everyone!!

It’s complicated

Mine and Will’s relationship with Miami is….. complicated.

There are many things we love about this place. Our friends, the beach, the great community we now have around us, how easy it is to get around, the variety of culture, the art scene, our friends (did I mention friends already? we really love our friends)…

There are many things we hate about it too. How hot it is all year long (I think it’s hot 10 months out of the year), the lack of seasons (both Will and I really miss Fall), how flat the scenery is (it’s FLAT here!), how far Miami is from everything (if you drive for 5 hours, you are still in Florida and everything is still FLAT!)…

And just when we talk about moving out of state again (Raleigh, NC is still #1 choice), I have wonderful days like yesterday only to make things more complicated!

Lily and I had an amazing morning at the beach. It really couldn’t have been more amazing. (only Will there would have made it more amazing)

Last day :(

Today is our last full day here in WV.

We will be packing up the car and driving back to Miami tomorrow afternoon.

We are sad to leave but we feel blessed to have had such an amazing two weeks here.

We will deeply miss our family, friends, the dogs and this beautiful place.

I will also really miss the every day simple routine I have had here.

Waking up with fresh air from sleeping with the windows open.

As I’m writing my posts this morning, there is a tropical storm going on outside our bedroom window.

I love rainy, gloomy days.

Living in Miami (it’s always sunny!) has made me appreciate rainy days even more than I did before.

There is nothing I don’t enjoy about days like this.

Hot coffee, the sound of rain hitting my window, Devendra Banhart play station on Pandora … ahhhhh, blessed rainy friday. 🙂

Do you enjoy rainy days?

HAPPY WEEKEND EVERYONE!
