After lots of traveling, Bentley's 1st birthday photo shoot, celebrating Bentley's 1st Birthday and spending many late nights crafting, doing a cake smash, having visits from lots of family, and everything else in the world going on I needed to take a little break from the blogging world for some us time. I am feeling so rejuvenated and grateful for this much needed break. I'm so glad to say I have a full month of nothing planned until we head back up to Utah in August for Brady's break. I'll be honest, it feels so great! We have lots of updates and so many exciting things coming up. Get ready for a flood! :)

Right after my segment on Good Things Utah, Bentley and I headed straight for Lake Powell! Every year Brady's family spends a week up there and it is like heaven on earth. If you have not been, you must! It is so beautiful and the scenery cannot be beat. The day after we got there, it was my birthday! The big 24! It sounds so old and I never imagined I would ever get here but here it is! 23 was a pretty great year... we'll see if 24 can even compare. 


Brady was still in California and didn't make it to the boat until early the next morning but he made sure to still surprise me! As soon as I got into our room I found the most beautiful roses and a sweet little love note. Best husband ever? You better believe it! :)

Here is a glimpse into our fun filled week and Bentley's first time at Lake Powell!





Bonding with sweet baby Say. This girls got a cuter wardrobe than any adult I know!


Lots of boat rides with my boys :)




What's a boat ride without a dance party!?






5 minutes spent with Bentley...




Who wears short shorts!?








We had the best time ever! :)
