10 Reasons Visiting Jaime Leaves Me Rejuvenated, Inspired and Feeling Loved

You may have heard me shouting from the rooftops that I spent last week in the land of my roaring 20’s, Los Angeles, California. My BFF Jaime and I had an insanely busy and fabulously productive week making video magic for the Prudent Baby YouTube channel. We crashed in exhaustion every night but managed to eat some delicious meals, play with with a cute kid and puppy and fantasize about opening up a Prudent Baby studio in a storefront on Third Street where we could work together every day. While it wasn’t a vacation, here are 10 reasons visiting Jaime has left me rejuvenated, inspired and feeling loved….

    A man who makes coffee. He sets it up the night before and schedules it for the morning. I've heard that all coffee pots do this but it's just not in my nature to make that happen.

    Seeing Prudent Baby Editor/Swimsuit Model COLLEEN! She braided my hair, braved advances from flower sellers and let us fantasize about fixing her up with cute single boys even though she's got a man. She delights me.

    Spending quality time with this sweet girl. Scarlet and I did some major bonding. Without the responsibilities of home, I was able to stop and talk and cuddle and laugh. I came home inspired to slow down my own morning and make time for early morning secrets and snuggles.

    Princess Cheese! I will never have a dog, my husband verbal pre-nuped it *shakes fists*, so I have to fill my needs elsewhere. Enter P. Cheese. I adore this pup.
