The perfect way to start our new life here in Newport was with family in town + a week at the beach! We moved our things into our home and stayed one night, then headed down to the beach house to stay & play with…

claire bear’s second birthday!

our little claire bear 🐻 is TWO! everyone falls in love with this girl, us most of all. so glad we celebrated her with a bear party in the bay before our move, and then she had a bonus birthday celebration on her actual day…

goodbye to the bay!

goodbye to the bay!

it was hard to swallow saying goodbye to our bay area after 8 years. we started our marriage here, had our first jobs and grew careers here, made lifelong best friends, lived in almost every part of it, had our first and second babies here. we moved abroad for a year and came right back here because it was home. it opened our minds more, pushed us and made us better people. it is full of endless beauty, the center of so much incredible advancement, and just such a special place. it has changed our life in so many ways! i knew the move wouldn’t fully sink in until we were back packing up after this summer away, and although we know it’s right for our family and we’re so excited, the bay will always be part of us. our little girls better always remember their bay beginnings, and i fully plan to bring them back often. we are excited to start a new chapter with new memories in the other half of the state we call home! xoxo FOREVER to our beloved bay and the people in it who have become family 🌲🤍 somehow despite COVID and everything changing for so many, we still had such a sweet final few weeks gathering with friends every night, doing final favorite things, and even being sent off with a spaced out picnic in the park to celebrate our baby boy and say goodbye. that just shows you how amazing this people and place have been. i could only detach enough from this place we’ve called home during something like COVID to be able to leave it! here are a few favorite memories and goodbyes from our last weeks there. we’ll be back often! xox
