WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU TOOK PHOTOS OF YOUR GRANDPARENTS? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For me, it was three years ago. Christmas 2016. We had just seen a movie at our first ever luxury movie theatre—you should ask me how that went down with two stubborn Mannino men in charge 😂 I begged my family to stop at this gorgeously lit dirt road for just 15 minutes so I could get some photos of us before we went home. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Of course I was met with 6 synchronized groans. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But all my begging (and bribery, let's be honest 😝) was worth it. Not only is Palm Springs a to-die-for location, but my sweet grandparents are the cutest things ever! I'm sad it took me this long to bring these to back to life, because now it's been three years and so much has changed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ From now on, I plan to prioritize getting photos of me and my family more frequently, because I don't want to wake up one day after someone I love is gone and realize my most recent photos with them are not even recent. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Not to mention, these two have a love story so adorable, it'll make you swoon. Coming soon to the #angelasueblog 💙 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Don't let this sweet gesture from my grandpa fool you... he's a big goofball! And Grandma ain't no saint either 😉 and I wouldn't trade them for the world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are your grandparents like? Tony & Irene here are originally from New York so you can probably imagine... 👇🏻
THE TRIBE HAS SPOKEN... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Any @officialsurvivor_cbs fans out there? My entire family used to sit around our TV to watch these strangers come together to complete these outrageous challenges (we often skipped the eating ones... no thanks). Grandma even made us our own family buffs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our own little tribe. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Nowadays, my tribe is bigger than the five of us at home. It has ebbed and flowed. Grown, then shrunk, then grown again. It happens! Life changes and people move on, but I cherish the season I'm in today with the tribe that is walking with me now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Who's your tribe today? Tag your people below to let em know we think they're the best!👇🏻 dresses: @targetstyle @target @windsor // florals: @wildroseandthyme
SEND FLOWERS... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Michael and I have both been on the job hunt, which means our networking skills have needed some dusting off and brisk exercise. But we're making progress! In the midst of this move, we're strategizing, praying and working towards our goals together. One day at a time! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But dang if it ain't hard work! We're saying goodbye to my apartment in just three days, so we're dreaming of a fresh bouquet of flowers sitting on my kitchen table with a healthy, fresh meal. In reality, it's dust, packing materials and a VERY hot cup of noodles for dinner. Yum. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Any ideas how to spice up your ramen? Help us! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (second shot with @ashbaumgartner 📸 )
MANIC-ISH MONDAY... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's Monday, friends, and I have FOUR DAYS LEFT in my little apartment 😬 while we've done our best to stay organized, the final stretch has me feeling a little chaotic. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank goodness for the last few days of cool morning walks and that ocean breeze bringing in a light layer of fog to keep the temperatures down, am I right? 🌬 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are you up to today? Throwing it back to this cool evening in the Marin Headlands for Carmen & Mike! Can't wait for their #petalumawedding next summer!
IT'S THE START OF A NEW WEEK... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In my mind, the week starts on Sunday and ends on Saturday. We kicked off the week with a good word from @vive.morganhill and @vive.church then *planned* to head straight into final packing mode before our #yosemiteengagement session this weekend for a 2019 #angelasuebride 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But we got sidetracked with naps and some #HIMYM reruns, plus highlights from Cara & Dan's dreamy golden #engagementsession last night in Morgan Hill ☀️ and we're daydreaming of playing with @josiethegoldengirl again someday! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Does your week start on Sunday or Monday? Can't wait to share more from these two cuties' session on the blog soon!👇🏻
