i’m excited to share all these photos from the last few days of our switzerland trip. it’s been really hard for me to try to put into words just how much our time there meant to us. i feel like the videos and photos don’t do it justice. but i also don’t think my words could ever do it justice either....

LOVE TAZA 8965501801210

here’s a big batch of some of my favorite photos from our first stop in switzerland. we spent our first few days in meiringen, an area where josh’s good friend from high school has lived for the past several years with her husband, who is from the area originally, and their two little ones.  the entire area was breathtaking, but the lake named lake engstlensee that our friends took us to, was on another level of beauty....

hello! sharing lots of photos today from the day we took a boat out around lake maggiore. this was so much fun! i don’t know why i get hesitant to do water activities with the kiddos, i always anticipate that they are going to hate it and we’re going to be stuck on a boat far away from land, but it turns out that all three of our kids are water babies through and through and never want to get back onto shore....

good morning from italy! we have just a few more days left here in this incredible place, but i have so much to say and share about our trip, i figured i better get started. we flew into milan and spent the first couple of days at lake maggiore. that place was a dream, seriously. i couldn’t get over the views, from the street OR the boat, in any direction you looked, it was photo worthy....

LOVE TAZA-15

i wanted to share some photos from last week in utah! it’s so funny, because i didn’t bring the camera out with me very much in utah, and so i didn’t think i really took very many photos, if any at all, but of course as i downloaded and went through them i had to laugh, because sure, most are random (what happens when you don’t have the camera handy during most picture worthy moments), but there were still a ton of photos....

since we’re in utah, we drove down to zion national park on friday night with big plans for a sunrise hike the next morning. but in typical davis family fashion, we didn’t get out of our hotel room and onto the road to the trail until 10am. but actually, in all honesty, high fives for getting on the road AT 10am and not later....

i spent the weekend in nashville with two of my dear girlfriends, lizzie and mary martha! i definitely cried the night before i flew out to meet them, because i hadn’t been away from conrad yet and leaving my kids in general makes me anxious, but josh is such a rockstar of a father and of course he handled everything so well back here at home while i was away....

how beautiful are those lanterns and lights at the new city center in DC?! we were driving by on our way to someplace else last week while visiting the district and those pink lanterns caught my eye out of no where and i was all, “we gotta pull over and go check that out!” we got lucky with a parking spot around the corner and BAM!...

LOVE TAZA Cherry Blossoms_-18

if you’ve been following along on instagram or snapchat, you probably know we are in DC right now. we drove down the other night for a day or two so we could catch the cherry blossoms while they are still in peak. they never disappoint. and they make me feel all sorts of happy. it was a little windy out while we were there so the loose petals were blowing in the wind around us while the kids ran near the tidal basin and the sun started peaking out....

the australian open (photos + a video!)

australianopen-10

without a doubt, our day at the australian open while in melbourne was dreamy. when we started talking about making this dream trip of ours a reality, we knew we needed to make sure we timed it to be there for the open. i’m so glad we did! the arena is much smaller than most tennis stadiums (the US open arena feels twice as big) so we were able to snag seats on the third row which made the entire experience feel a little more intimate....
