While I have so many more pictures I haven't posted, I finally picked through our last day to give you the final installment of our Iceland vacation! Looking back through these is making me so nostalgic for this trip. It was such a good adventure together and it still feels surreal that we got to see these things in real life. I'll never forget the feeling when we turned the corner of a huge mountain range and saw Skogafoss in the distance, or how fresh the air was as we hiked alongside of Fjadrargljufur and felt like we were in Narnia. This trip was a bucket list item fulfilled and so much more. It was so sweet to spend these days driving and laughing with Aaron and enjoying this country just the two of us. While I know we'll be intentional about family adventures after our baby arrives (we already have Yosemite booked for November!), this will be one I cherish for a long time.

I took a whirlwind trip to New York yesterday for some bonding on the water with my co-workers. Back in the original days of ONA, our first monthly field trip was sailing so we recreated that yesterday with the current team. It was an idyllic summer day and such good time spent together sailing around a city we all love so much. Bonus, after we sailed I introduced my co-workers to Christine and her new pug puppy, Gertie! So very grateful for my job and the opportunity to be back in New York so frequently because of it.

Back to Iceland pictures! I still have so much to share and next up is from the amazing day driving to our second hotel. We stayed at Hotel Lambafell which literally sits at the foot of a huge mountain that erupted a few years ago! It's about 30 minutes east of Vik and put us in a perfect location for easy access to some of Iceland's most incredible sights. We spent most of the day driving in that direction and stopping along the road anytime there was something beautiful... basically every few minutes. We stopped at Seljalandsfoss on the way, and we both agreed it was a life highlight getting to walk behind such a huge waterfall. Later that evening, we hiked out to Seljavallalaug (one of Iceland's oldest swimming pools) for a dip in the warm water. We lucked out because it was just a quick hike from our hotel which made it easy to come back and round out the day with some wine and cheese.

It's no surprise at this point that my sister is an expert party planner and I have pictures here to prove it! When we started talking about the shower a few months ago I knew I wanted Aaron to be a part (it's his baby too, after all!) so a co-ed fiesta was the direction she headed. After all sorts of planning and purchasing, my sister and Sam opened their home to around 50 people who came to celebrate baby Wishart. We joked that it was like having another wedding! The afternoon was so much fun, with delicious food, amazing decoration and detail, and so many people we love in one place. Our baby girl was showered with SO many wonderful gifts and we left feeling overwhelmed with love and support as we head into this next phase of life. Thank you so much, Sees! It was the best day.
