Our Move to Tennessee

Memorial Day weekend, we made the cross country drive from Colorado to Tennessee. Because we had two vehicles and a U-haul truck, Nathan and I had to drive separately which made the trip challenging. We loved our time in Colorado and will always cherish those four years. We are excited to be starting a new chapter in Tennessee and couldn’t have asked for a more perfect home or area to live in.

 

Christmas Road Trip 2019

This year we stayed home for Christmas and Nathan’s parents came out to visit and spend the holiday with us. The day after Christmas we took them on a roadtrip to Utah and Arizona, sort of a redo of the trip we took before Noelle was born because we loved it so much. This time, everything looked completely different though, because of the snow. It was below freezing for the majority of our trip which limited the amount of hiking we were able to do, but we still had a great time. We went to the Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park in Moab, Bryce Canyon National Park and Zion National Park in Southern Utah, Horseshoe Bend in Page, AZ and Mesa Verde National Park near Durango Colorado on our way home.

Wisconsin Family Vacation

This year, we decided to do a family vacation with Nathan’s family to Door County, WI which is right on Lake Michigan. All of us (21 total!) shared a big Air BnB together. We visited the maritime museum, went cherry picking, did some hiking, visited some lighthouses and took a ferry to Washington Island where we visited a lavender farm. We all had a really fun time together, and I was really amazed at how pretty Wisonsin and Lake Michigan were! Here are some pictures from our trip…

Pennsylvania

At the end of July we flew out to Pennsylvania to spend time with my family. We stayed for about a week and a half which was so refreshing, compared to quick holiday time trips. I always love being home in the summer and enjoying the yard where I grew up in. Noelle loved Grandpa’s garden and he would frequently take her down there to pick berries and feed them to her. We took a day trip to the ocean while we were there and Noelle enjoyed playing in the sand. It kept her entertained for several hours haha. The rest of the time, we had our whole family together at home which is not a frequent occurrence, and it was so special.
