I cannot fully express how good it feels to be writing this post right now. As I type this it's Sunday night, my whole family is fed and bathed, and I can't stop smiling as I look at these photos that we took earlier today. It was the last morning of our family vacation to Sarasota and although Anel and I were both physically exhausted from chasing around a very active little girl for four days, we were so happy and fulfilled.

I'm so excited to reveal what we've been working on in our guest room over the last few months. Our house is a split level/raised ranch style home and both of these rooms are located in the basement. We're lucky because we have a south-facing (small) window that gives the space an incredible amount of light.
This is our third spring in a row heading to Sarasota for a little vacation. The first time I was newly pregnant, last year, Amalia was only 8 months old, and this time she's a full-on walking and talking toddler. I have to say, I'm the most excited for this year's trip because she really appreciates the beach and swimming in the pool now.
Last month I promised a vegetarian recipe next, and here it is! Many of the recent recipes I've shared have been chicken-based (chicken tortilla soup, buffalo chicken bowls, and honey teriyaki chicken) which is funny because I actually prefer to eat vegetarian when I can. If I didn't live with a man who needed meat to sustain him, I would probably only make it once a week.
This is my final outfit post from Palm Beach, I promise! This dress so perfectly on brand for the location, that I threw it on after an hour at the pool to take some photos. Hence my beachy hair and no makeup situation. I've literally never seen more banana leaf print in one place... Except perhaps for my guest room that will finally be revealed on Thursday.
