We just returned from spending a week with my family in Albuquerque! It was a whirlwind of a trip, jam packed with great times and people I absolutely adore. I got to attend a dear friend's baby shower, celebrate my 31st birthday, go on a lovely breakfast date with Eric, as well as spend some much needed quality time with my precious fam! It was so incredible to see Luca fall in love with our family there (and vice versa). Here are a few pics:

On a spontaneous whim, the fam and I decided to drive to Eugene for the day. We stopped at Sahalie Falls on the way, then went to the Saturday Market (yummy food, some really cool handmade wares, and unbeatable people watching). Here's a little recap:

Just the Girls

by Lindsay Parnell

Eric left on a last minute business trip last Sunday, leaving just Luca and myself for 5 days and nights. The lengths I go to to entertain that girl are nothing short of hilarious, but 5 days straight of just mom trying to keep a teething 9 month old happy gets to be a bit...old.  Needless to say, we spent a lot of time outside! I find I get some of the most beautiful pictures of Luca when I'm not trying too hard. So here are a few gems I took one afternoon, whilst trying to keep my daughter from losing it. 



Johnny Boy

My fandom started around the age of 14.

I can't remember who first showed me his music, but I do remember that I basically never took that beautiful, burned CD out of my 1990 gold Honda Accord. I knew every word. For my 16th birthday, my dad, being the greatest, surprised me with tickets to see John Mayer at the Paolo Soleri Amphitheatre in Santa Fe, NM. It was one of the most memorable birthdays/nights ever, and one that we still talk about. (I LOVE YOU TAMBOURINE BOY!) 

Well, fast forward 15 years and my wonderful husband surprised me with tickets to see him yet again for my birthday at the Gorge Amphitheater in Washington! My mom stayed with Luca for the night while Eric and I hit the road!

We got a phone call a few days before leaving town saying that the tickets we purchased were no longer available for some reason (cue panic), and would we like two tickets front and center IN ROW 9?! Ummm, yes. Yes, we would.

You guys, it was unbelievable. 

I got about a million videos which will probably be pretty boring to most of you, but I'm posting a couple here anyway because I want to 😂  (don't worry they're down at the bottom!).
