Una cittadina in stile inglese, con i cottages e i fiori, le casette romantiche e i tetti spioventi. Una piccola Europa in California, sulla costa pacifica a sud di San Francisco. Oggi ho camminato in un piccolo sogno: Carmel by the Sea. 🌸💖✨
We spent our last few days chilling with some beach and pool time after all our road-trip adventures. The kids loved the waves and collecting crabs.
We’re so thankful for this concentrated family time and this experience together. I knew foster care, the visits, kids coming and leaving, and all the emotional stuff that comes with it would be hard, but not until our youngest 2 boys left and we knew we could adopt the “Ys” did I start to feel the impact of the last few years, and more greatly see it in the rest of my family. These kids are strong, our family is resilient, but I’m thankful for God’s perfect timing in this little reprieve for this family of mine. #fostercareishard#fostercareisworthit
We’re almost home and school starts tomorrow! Everyone’s ready and all are excited but the one taking a few high school classes - but he’s totally got this 👊🏼 They all do!! #emersontroupe#Emersontroupegoeswest#santamonica#pacificcoast
|| The Beach Life || Today was my last day in Portland and me and @joelcedar had most of the day to travel out to the Oregon coast, eat some delicious clam chowder, relax with some @eclipticbrewing brews in the shadow with haystack rock, and then wander up to Astoria. All before he just dropped me off at the airport. Today has been wonderful, beautiful, and peaceful. Now on to the next leg of the trip. 😊
