Friday, July 27, 2012

this week has sucked.
allow me to explain...

that is all.


your canoe or mine?

times have been hectic. but every spare chance we get, we relax.
last weekend it was cuddles with G and Kellan.
and canoeing down the river and pitching a tent by the lake.

oh, and visiting donkeys.
iowa is so pretty in the summer.


dancin on my own.

Thursday, July 19, 2012

today is a bad day.
this whole week is one long, strewn out bad day.

you know what though?
some times you just have to say fuck it. and laugh. and dance.
preferably with your awesome best friend who is coincidentally lena dunham.

that is one of my favorite scenes from a tv show ever.
from one of my favorite tv shows ever, girls.

it really doesn't matter how bad the day was.
just dance.


makin' plans.

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

I'm not sure another song could ever be so perfect for us.

in love.

If I ever left this town
I'd never settle down
I'd just be wandering around
If I ever left this town

If I wasn't by your side
I'd never be satisfied
Nothin' would feel just right
If I wasn't by your side

'cause I'm not easy to understand
But you know me like the back of your hand
I'm your girl and you're my man
And we're makin' plans

We can go on and on
Won't ever feel too long
I'll always call you home
And we'll go on and on

'cause I know you like the back of my hand
Got a heart of gold and a piece of land
I'm your girl and you're my man
And we're makin' plans

i think you still have lightning in you.

i'm completely obsessed with this film.

wes anderson, i bow down.
and i thank you and thank you and thank you.

farewell, weekend.

Sunday, July 8, 2012

we enjoyed...
lots of supernatural | quinoa and corn on the cob | farmer's market | lavender iced tea
sunflowers | moonrise kingdom | double date | new mailbox
pretty bow rings | kellan giggles | cave ins | watching more supernatural, with G | ice cream
dropping kirby at camp | sleeping in | trader joes goodies | relaxation

i will miss you weekend.
until next time..


anywhere but where i am.

this fourth of july we headed to our favorite barn... for a little all night shindig, jamming out to the most incredible live music, including a small town band you may know as the counting crows. although my favorite act of the night is an up and coming band named foreign fields. everyone rocked out hard, in the barn, cramming 650+ bodies inside, 100+ degrees in the shade... let me tell you it was hot. but we managed just fine... tackling the 1 beer, 1 water method and lots and lots of ice cubes down our shirts... hey, you do what you have to. it was incredibly worth it.

event highlights:
counting crows singing colorblind while I swayed to the music with my husband.
counting crows, again, jamming out to romany rye's love song and shouting every word with stacey.
the most adorable bass player ever. i'm talking to you field report.
all of the bands taking the stage together during the encore to sing a special rendition of this land is your land. it was the fourth of july afterall.

incredible night. there are no words.

plus, some leftover camping photos when Kirby and I had fun with some sparklers.

happy sunday loves.

nobody knows how it feels every time
all of the time
but "it's okay"
"it's ok"
nobody knows
but i've got a good life
nobody knows
of the aches
and the hollows
the deep breathing swallows
tiny things
nobody knows
it's always there
rooted in deep
anchor to all
the line that leads straight in
weakness and strength
i feel it all.

succulents, obviously. i have them everywhere.
painting my nails a lot lately, favorites are julep.
but right now i'm obsessed with this color by essie.
i have perfected the sock bun & it is glorious.
starbucks secret drinks. i tried the raspberry cheesecake.
quinoa & brussel sprouts. i eat one or the other at least every day.
