  1. I love these posts so much! I know that you'd love Charleston and Washington DC, so I hope that you get to visit them soon! And yes to all the wine! It's my favorite drink too, even though it's not a cocktail.

  2. Oh you have to visit DC, Charleston, and Oregon. If you can save your trip to Oregon for fall one year, I would definitely do that. We went last fall, and it was just magical! I'm loving reading these Three Things posts. Such a fun way to get to know you a little more!

  3. I am so excited for you to be a mom!!

  4. Wine is definitely an acceptable cocktail haha. I don't drink many kinds of liquor (allergies) so I tend to skip cocktails altogether...I wouldn't even know what to put in that section! Wine, cider, and more wine?

  5. Charleston and Bora Bora are two dream travel locations for me as well! Loved reading more about you.

  6. Dont feel bad, everything makes me cry & I'm not pregnant ;)
    Red Velvet cheesecake??!?! Never had it . a must now.
    Reading with it raining is my fav too!

  7. Yes please to Australia and Bora Bora!! I'm with you on the photos and traveling - definitely things I don't want to give up either!

  8. Omg, I've obviously missed a post or two because I'm just learning that y'all are expecting!! And a boy?! Omg, congratulations!! How exciting! Love the Alaska pictures. That's a place on my list too.

  9. Glossy gloss is a girl's best friend. Wine is definitely a cocktail if you ask me. I love these posts. I think I may have to do one too!

  10. We're pretty much cocktail twins, lol. And why is Skyler so darn cute??
    You just seem like the sweetest person ever, Olya! We need to meet and get crab legs some time. Lol!

  11. I love this. Um yes on all of the cocktails. I also love a good margarita or mojito. Lime for life I guess. hehe I love Skyler, I sometimes forget!! So cute! I would never want to give up travel or reading either. Fun post, good luck with all the third trimester feels. :) XO - Alexandra
