It’s been positively ages since we last blogged, so we thought we’d catch you up on what’s been keeping us away from the keyboard. (Other than, you know, chasing a toddler, practicing law and keeping our family fed and not dressed like hobos.)
We are fortunate to spend so much time with our Little Lady, but dammit if mommy doesn’t need a break every now and then. Being wholly responsible for a teeny-tiny human with ever-increasing footspeed and decidedly questionable judgment is…depleting. We try to be a relaxed parent, but sometimes we catch ourselves holding our breath just watching her because we’re so terrified she’ll topple from a play structure or choke to death on a cheesy bunny. (Waking to the sound of crying each morning is also a treat which can only be described as Satan’s alarm clock.)
Simply put, we needed some R&R. Along with our dear friend (and fellow mother of a toddler), Tara, we hightailed it to the Four Seasons Las Vegas. While Vegas might not be the sort of place one ordinarily associates with, ahem, rest, the Four Seasons is a quiet and elegant oasis amidst the hedonism. We lazed poolside, visited the spa and dined with plenty of time to be asleep before midnight. (That’s how moms do vacation, yo.)
OF COURSE the weather in San Francisco was perfect while we were out of town. We fortunately returned just in time to take the Little Lady for her first dip in the Pacific Ocean (and snap some rare shots of the Golden Gate Bridge and sunshine coexisting).
Remember the butter and black vision we had for the upcoming exterior painting of our building? We sampled some yellow paint and, uh, it’s YELLOW. We decided to try some other options (Translation: CHOKE) so now our indecision is prominently written all over our garage door for the entire neighborhood to see. Awesome.
The upside? The blue color we’ve been obsessed with ever since spotting…
…this garage door a few blocks from our home might be happening. Isn’t it gorgeous? We’ve taken to calling it “French navy blue” and think it would be *perfect* for our trim and front doors. We can just picture ourselves walking through a glossy, French navy blue front door every day and we like.
