As the season changes to Spring and the new flowers emerge, I start thinking about our future plans of becoming parents. As we get closer and closer to the time we want to start trying, I find myself having more questions about parenthood and what we can do to better prepare.
We recently went to a funeral of a family friend on the same day that we visited our friends' new baby daughter. It was somehow so fitting to celebrate a new life and mourn a death on the same day, a true circle of life experience.
We have asked our friends what we should do prior to having a baby, and immediately everyone said to travel. That was the one thing they said they wished they did more of because it is so much harder to travel with kids.
Do you have kids? What advice do you have for us before we have kids?
Of course, my husband took their advice of traveling more as camping more. We now have two camping trips planned. One trip was rescheduled last weekend because it rained so much. We will be camping in Malibu and Joshua Tree National Park.
I can't wait for Joshua Tree. I am a huge lover of the desert and cacti. There is something so beautiful about a plant that survives the harshest of conditions. That is why my favorite part of Huntington Library is the desert garden. I love how powerful cacti look!
Have a great weekend!
