We woke up this morning to the most beautiful sunrise – it looked like we were floating on top of the clouds! We slept in this Airstream that I rented on Airbnb and it was such a magical adventure with the family. We drove up the windy dirt road and got to the airstream on a cliff in the middle of nowhere! We immediately explored and tried to find animals – we saw deer, butterflies, and bunnies! We played lots of duck duck goose on the deck, ate dinner, played make believe, and watched the craziest most beautiful sunset!!!! I seriously can’t even explain how amazing it was. We all snuggled in bed and could see the moon and ocean from bed — we fell asleep to the sound of crickets and animals crawling around outside. Such a fun adventure. We were cracking up because Rosie said “oh no” about 1000 times. Not sure why she was so concerned haha but she just kept saying “ohhh noo…”. And Atticus loved saying “shoo!” to all the bugs and flies. He also showed us some impressive yoga moves. He walked to the corner of the deck and just started doing all these yoga poses and his deep breathing! You might remember about a year and a half ago when I said I wanted to get Atticus into yoga. We started with these yoga youtube videos that a lot of you recommended and from day 1 he just really loved it. Since it has been a really great tool for getting him to calm down. If he is ever having a tantrum I can say, “Atticus take your deep breath” and I have my hands together while I say it — he now can calm himself down enough to put his hands together and take a few deep breaths which usually ends the tantrum. Sometimes at night when he is wiggling while I am trying to put him to bed I have him do his deep breaths and it calms him too.
Anyways – it was a really magical experience!!! If you click this link you can get $40 off your first time booking an airbnb! (this isn’t sponsored by airbnb, I paid for our stay. They give each user a coupon code to give people and that is mine). We drove back today — in the crazzziest rainstorm no less. We are back in Arizona and we are going camping this weekend. Then my cousin who has been teaching in China for the past few years is coming to stay with us and I cannot wait. She is leaving to teach in Dubai soon and I am so happy we get to hang with her before her big move. I am also hoping we can get out there and visit her next year! The flight is sooo long though yikes. I am not sure I could ever go that far without the kids either so we will see but I really hope to.
We will be back in California next week for a pop up I am doing for Barefoot Blonde Hair in LA!!!! The pop up will be on August 11th at Nine Zero One Salon from 4-6pm! The girls at Nine Zero One are insanely talented – I am sure a lot of you already follow them so definitely come and get your hair looking fab!
