Happy Monday, y’all! The last four-or-so days have been a complete whirlwind, with us packing up and traveling back to Houston from Durango after being gone for a month (Isla and I, flying and Sasha, driving) and then hitting the ground running with photo shoots on Saturday night (just hours after landing) and again on Sunday (for Jessica’s blog – Feather Thread). I’m doing a sneak peek of some of Jess’ photos below, as they are absolutely my favorite we’ve done so far. I have a hippie-inspired styled shoot tonight with five other talented ladies/friends’ involvement, and I am anxious for 7:15pm to roll around for us to get started.

Some of the highlights from the past week (other than taking a much needed ‘blogcation’) include:

  • Seeing my parents and Sasha’s mom after being gone for a long time! I know they were all way more enthused about seeing Isla, but I’ll pretend it was equal love for all! Ha.
  • Getting picked up at the airport by my very best friend, McKenzie. She met us in the baggage claim area and I could have hugged her all day long. She also made my favorite vegan dessert and had it in a cooler in the car. Yup, she’s perfect.
  • Making multiple trips to the Durango Rec Center, sliding down the slides at least 50 times with Isla and hearing Sasha brag about being the “fastest person ever to go down the big slide” (which is clearly made for 13 year olds).
  • Going on multiple bike rides with Isla along the Animas River – we even stopped one day and let Isla wade around. She is a champ, because it was so cold I couldn’t even last ten seconds. I adore the photos of her holding onto her Tata’s hands. They melt my heart!
  • Eating at every single one of our favorite restaurants in Durango before heading back to Texas – Himalayan Kitchen, Cyprus CafeFired Up, Carver’s, Cream Bean Berry and Eolus. Best meals and drinks! I am going to miss each place a lot.
  • Lots and lots of swinging at the park. Isla is addicted, and I’m obsessed with her squeals of joy, so it’s a win-win activity!
  • Trying the Animas Brewing Company and having my first glass of wine from a can. And y’all, it was so good. The company is called The Infinite Monkey Theorem, and if you can get your hands on a can, I recommend it.
  • Getting a package in the mail from Bookroo – I cannot wait to share details about this cool company/concept this week!

How was your week?? Get up to anything fun?

  1. OMG…too many great pics/moments to pick a favorite from last week. I love the Belle flying into the river pic and Isla walking Belle was mega cute. All in all the entire week was amazing as you can see by the photo collection.

  2. Looks like you guys had a blast and some beautiful weather in Durango! I’ve heard so many good things about it there, but have only ever driven through, I’ll have to stop in next time.

    You take beautiful pictures and it will be so fun to look back on to see little miss Isla growing up. I love the ones of her in the water and walking the dog! Precious!

  3. Okay, okay, lets talk about Isla’s amazing suntan and of course all her cute outfits. I love all the fun you guys have. She is such a lucky girl!!

  4. Great pictures! I love Colorado in the summer, well, and the winter too. I will have to try that canned wine sometime if I ever see it.

  5. Ailee I just loved seeing all these gorgeous pics of your beautiful family. You look so happy and relaxed. So glad you had a lovely long holiday and came to some exciting work. Lots of love. Xx
