I haven’t written anything on here in a hot minute, but I thought it was time to update y’all on what’s been happening for the past few months!
Let’s jump straight to the topic that everyone is most curious about: the Coronavirus.
Taylor and I came back to the States December 17th for our scheduled Christmas vacation. We had one month to see family, enjoy the holidays, and take a few trips! If you follow me on social media, than you’ll already know that the Coronavirus threw a wrench into our plans to return to China, because as you can see, we’re still in America. On the morning of our flight, we got a call that we had to cancel our flight to China until further notice. Currently, we’re being told that we can’t fly back until March 10th. However, that’s still subject to change because most major airlines aren’t flying to China until later this spring. Originally, I was supposed to return to China at the end of January and then fly back to South Carolina on March 10th, where I’d remain until the baby comes (did I ever mention I was pregnant?). Now, I don’t have time to go back to China without it being too close to our delivery date.
It’s very bitter-sweet, because I was looking forward to spending a few weeks in China before coming home for the birth. All my belongings are in China, and I won’t be able to get any of that back until Taylor returns in May. However, I’m grateful for the extra time at home and I don’t have to worry about long travel days during the third trimester.
If you know Taylor and I, you know that we’ve been filling all this extra time up with loads of adventure and quality time together. Really, the second trimester has been one giant baby moon! 🙂
In January we rang in the new year in Ireland!
Then, we spent a few days exploring the countryside of England and the streets of London.
My family in Pennsylvania threw us a beautiful baby shower for baby Stevens!
We’ve been to a couple of Clemson basketball games.
We went to visit Kendall in Arizona for a week, where we watched the Waste Management Open.
We explored Joshua Tree National Park while we were out west.Where we stayed in the cutest tiny house via Airbnb! You can see the house HERE.
Joshua Tree was the perfect park for me because I didn’t have to hike in order to see all the beauty. Taylor and I were able to drive through the park and relax.
That leaves us with today, where we’re spending time getting boring adult stuff done and trying to plan the next month. 🙂 We don’t have plans at the moment, so we’re taking each day as it comes, snuggling with our favorite girl.
Stay tuned for more updates, and have a great week!
