Another busy weekend, but it’s the last busy one for a tiny little bit while we vacation in French Polynesia!!! We leave later this week and we’re stokedddd! Ian’s halfway already packed while I just have a packing list lol, but still – we’re so excited! We haven’t been this excited to go on a trip in so long. We always love traveling, but it’s just more fun when you’re going together and going to meet up with awesome people.

On another note, this weekend has also been a sweet time for family gathering. We celebrated my dad’s birthday and Father’s Day by spending time together, talking stories, and eating a ton of yummy homemade filipino food.

This is just a photo I took of one of my many spider plant babies that have grown a lot in the last couple months.
