You can take the girl out of the country....

A little glimpse into life in my hometown. It's one of the most beautiful places to spend the summer (winter, not so much), surrounded by rivers and the Pacific ocean.

A Baby Celebration

A big reason for my trip down the coast was my sister. Not only my sister, but my already loved nephew growing strong in her belly, and my sister's husband flew in from Manhattan.. This will be the first baby in my family and I am beyond excited. I love my nephew so much already, I can't imagine when I first get to hold him and watch him grow. We decided to have a baby celebration. Were not big on baby games and all that but we had to celebrate.

Baby shower dress (Target), soon shed for bikini
We invited good friends, brought food and gifts and gathered way up Elk River to one of the most beautiful secluded spots, Jacuzzi Rock. The water was cold, but the sun was hot and the company good.

Grace My Garden

One day, when I get married, I predict I'll wear something simple, borderline casual. I'm no formal, extravagant woman. I feel uncomfortable with many eyes watching me, I love to dress up but never feel like myself. This dress is suited for a walk down the isle. It is white and simple. Flowy and hippie. The perfect combination for a (typically) barefooted wild child.

Digging through my mom's attic, on a search for baby clothes, I spotted the old dress up box and found long lost treasures. And while wedding bells are in a very distant future, in the meantime I am ready for evenings in the orchard and setting sun by the sea.

Coming off of an amazing five day weekend, I am inspired to travel and dream. To cancel real life and run off to India. I want to run and dance and see new places. Isn't' it fitting that this dress is representative of my mind?
Now tell me your summer dreams....

Oh, hi. Remember me?
It has been a busy July. Rain and more rain. A few days of sun. Camping, picnics, life decisions. You know, typical summer stuff.
Right now I'm on the coast at my mom's house. My family is all home and were really enjoying the sun and the company. More posts schedule in the very near future.
I've missed you guys!
