Europe, Part 4

Wow! It's been crazy around the Millard home(s) these days--we just completed our move from Sherman Oaks to Redondo Beach (big thanks to our amazing family for helping us out!). This video has been done for a while now, but I just couldn't find the time to get it posted. So forgive me for being brief, but here is the final leg of our European vacation! We cruised to Cannes, Marseille and back to Barcelona. We could have spent two more weeks simply enjoying Barcelona; we LOVED it there. But let's be honest, it's always nice to come back home after a long vacation, especially with a baby onboard!

Back to the grind, but I'll be back soon to post some bump shots and other fun happenings. Promise! ;)


Europe, Part 3 - plus EXCITING NEWS!

It's that time again...the next chapter of our European vacay is here! I have to say I think this is our best video yet. Why? Well, just watch all the way to the end and you'll see. Get ready for Florence, Italy and a little snippet from Marseille, France.


Who knew this trip would be SO life-changing?!


PS...secret's out now, obviously. :)


Europe, Part 2

It's here! Part 2 of our European vacay is complete, courtesy of my handsome hubbiness. Join us as we dive into all things Rome--our absolute favorite place. We hit up some awesome sights, like Trevi Fountain, Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Vatican City. It was a whirlwind of a day, and luckily we had an awesome tour guide who kept us going smoothly from place to place. From tossing coins into Trevi Fountain (we're going back someday, woohoo!) to walking around the Colosseum completely awe-struck, it was a total dream. And it didn't stop there, Vatican City was unbelievable as well. We loved seeing St. Peter's Square and St. Peter's Basilica. I could go on and on, but I'll let the video take it from here...Arrivederci! 


Europe 2012

You guys...guess what? We went to EUROPE! And we have video to prove it. :) The trip was kind of spontaneous and maybe a little impulsive, but SO worth it. A few weeks ago, we took a 7-day Mediterranean cruise out of Barcelona, with stops in Italy and France. We had the time of our lives, and feel so blessed that we were able to take this incredible trip together.

We took a few pictures here and there, but really concentrated on getting some great video. I mean--Rich is the video wiz, so it just seemed appropriate. We came home with A LOT of footage, so we're breaking the video up into 3 parts (to keep you coming back for more, duh!).

So with that, kick back and enjoy Part 1 of our Mediterranean tour, where we set sail from Barcelona and cruise to Naples, Italy for some fun in the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii.




......have I been? I don't even know where to begin. These last several months have been a complete whirlwind, and I'm yearning to get my feet back on the ground. How does life get so crazy? Sometimes I get so overwhelmed when I think about how fast time escapes me, but I have to stop and think about how incredibly blessed I am to have such a crazy full life.

Lately, I feel as though I've been just barely surviving each passing week and month, and I hate that feeling. I cherish the slow, quiet moments where I can breathe deeply and just reflect, relax, and enjoy. This morning was the first time in a while that I've felt that way, and it was simply lovely.

Despite my feeling a little tired and burned out, life is really good. I have the most amazing husband, wonderful family, and freakin' rad friends. And more importantly, I'm loved by Jesus and there's nothing more I need than that.


ps.. Speaking of lovely and quiet movements, Kinfolk (with the help of the talented Tiger in a Jar duo) makes baking bread seem like the most lovely experience ever.

Now I'm off to make some bread!
