Hello friends! Today we are at UCLA for doctor visits for David. Just routine. We are heading home this afternoon. It’s a lot of driving, but it’s nice to get some time as a family. How about some hellos for a new week?


Hello fun weekend with cousins. My sister’s home is so lovely, isn’t it? So much light and texture.


Hello succulents around the bathroom tub {also in my sister’s home}. This is such a great idea–I think I’ll steal it.

Hello hike with the cousins. It was hot but we made it to the top of the hill. So fun!

Hello family themed costumes. Steve was Obi Wan, I was a storm trooper, David was Finn {he’s a character in the new movie} and Matthias was Kylo Ren {also in the movie}. We had so much fun. And everyone was supportive as we trick or treated. Getting a family pic was definitely challenging–but we did it.

Hello visiting the pulmonologist and dentist today at UCLA.

Hello walking around Westwood to waste time between appointments.

Hello sunshine and LA traffic.

Hello missing a day of school and work and jumping into the week a little behind.

Hello cleaning out the garage. I’m on a roll and it’s my next project. Yay!

Hello no school on Friday. What?!?!

Hello home from 6th grade camp. I missed Matthias last week–so glad he’s back. He had a fabulous time!

Hello couch shopping. Kind of fun and a little stressful.

Hello to you! It’s a brand new week with beauty to be found. What are you saying hello to this week? Leave a┬ácomments with your hellos. Happy Monday, friends!
