Every year for the holidays we visit home to Park City (Utah). I can’t help but always refer to Park City as “home,” – no matter where we live. They say home is where the heart is and I guess my heart will always be here in the mountains.
But there is nothing better than hanging out with family in the home I grew up in in Deer Valley, getting cozy in the comfiest pajamas, sitting by the warm fireplace, watching a happy movie together, enjoying my coffe (and tea and hot cocoa) and snuggling up with the ones I love.
Just like my pals at Serena & Lily, I believe that living well begins at home. If you’re not familiar with them, they are known for their first-class luxurious bedding, coastal take on dining and casually classic beach vibes.
Unfortunately, this year Soleil got sick so we took her to the pediatricians office and she tested positive for the dreaded RSV (respiratory syncytial virus), which is like a normal cold for adults but can be very scary for infants. Try as we might to be feverish about making everyone in the family wash their hands, limiting those she comes in contact with and keeping her covered, sometimes it’s hard to protect our babies from everything. Especially when both my girls were born during Flu and RSV season.
Luna had RSV at four months old and it was one of the hardest things I have ever had to witness or go through. I am so sad Soleil caught it at only two months. I keep telling myself that at least it’s helping her build up her immunities. But thankfully, she doesn’t seem to have it as bad as Luna did. She has no fever (thank goodness) and seems to be getting better. Luna had a fever of 104 degrees for four solid days straight and had a straight faucet of snot coming from her nose that wouldn’t quit (and so did Mommy). Either way, it hurts to see your babies hurt.
Needless to say we have been cooped up indoors, keeping her warm and cozy near the humidifier, using the snot sucker religiously and keeping her cozy and swaddled indoors. So basically, I have been living in my Serena & Lily pajamas all week.
At least Ben has been able to get out and have fun with Luna, taking her skiing and getting in the hot tub. Indoors by the fire or outdoors in the snow, either way Park City is magic.
