JUST ME AND YOU
one of my favorite blogs, bleubird vintage, did a “what we wore” feature on arian and i this week. head over there if you wanna see where to shop any of the items! thanks for the photos, kim! and for the post, james
i don’t read a lot of mom blogs…because, well…i’m not a mom. and i’m not even close to being ready for that. but there are some family oriented blogs that are so approachable. they make having a little family someday seem very exciting. i often have thoughts of “i’m so messy, and unorganized and easily distracted…how am i going to have a kid!? i can barely unpack my own suitcase.” but i have a few friends that put my mind at ease a little. when i go over to their house, there’s still dishes in the sink and clothes on the floor…you can still be messy and that doesn’t mean you’re a bad mom! i’m learning that your whole life doesn’t have to drastically change just because you have a child. of course i don’t want to be messy forever…but that’s just the way it is right now.
i’m looking forward to spending some time with this guy in paris + spain next week. we keep saying to each other “i’ll meet you in paris.” which is pretty fun to say. we’ve probably said it too many times, but oh well. i’m taking the train from london and he’s coming from LA, we are meeting at the apartment we rented, and then goin straight to cafe charlot for eggs.
the last real vacation him and i took ALONE for more than a day or two was august 2009 (!) when we went to costa rica. wow. that is a long time ago. pardon my trip down memory lane here for a sec…
something i’ve noticed lately is how disconnected you can get from your significant other if one of you travels a lot. if you aren’t seeing the same things, or on the same time zone it can be easy to drift into your own seperate worlds. so this trip is really important for us to experience another place together. and make our own memories that we don’t have to try to explain to each other over the phone or in an email. have you dealt with this same problem?
i guess 2009 was all about taking couple photos with one extended arm. i remember having so much fun on that trip. and being a little chubby because all i used to eat was pad thai and buttered noodles and then one day my metabolism caught up with me and was like “nope, you can’t do that anymore.” ha. which brings me to this post about how i lost it. (which somehow is still the top read post on my blog ever!)
anyways, i’m rambling. yay for alone time with arian. that’s all. -bri
