Carson and I have found a new love for the beach and typically try to sit sea side every weekend! I like to call it freckle season and I wish they would stay year long. I’m not sure if it was the move abroad, or just growing older but my skin has become SO SENSITIVE! I can’t even use Dove anymore and i’ve switched to more natural products. Now this post is NOT SPONSORED so I am not trying to sell you anything, just spread the goodness of all natural products!

You guys!!!!! The tulips were a dream! When Katia booked her trip to come visit us we decided to put Amsterdam on our list! It totally slipped my mind that the Tulips would be in bloom and it was everything we hoped for! A couple pieces of advice….book your airbnb or hotel super far in advance! I made the mistake of not doing so and every reasonable airbnb was booked! Even the hotel rooms were getting out of hand. Luckily we had a friend from the US that was willing to let us crash at their place!

Valencia’s “El Carmen” neighborhood is home to bohemian bars, adorable restaurants, boutiques, and the Institute of Art.

My parents flew into Barcelona to pay us a little visit! I was so excited to show them around Europe so we jumped on a plane and headed to Rome!
