all has been quiet around here because we have been busy preparing & packing.
& in between all of our travels & this preparation, trying to stay caught up with our photo editing.
all because this fall we are headed west.
we will soon call california home.
the pacific our back yard.
we are bursting with joy & can’t wait to explore the coast hand in hand.

i dream of living a simple life, with you by my side.
i dream of bright white walls.
of open windows. of sea breezes.
bike rides. adventures. picnics.
these are my dreams.
& the best part of my dreams are, of course, you by my side.
august is here in all of her glory,
marking that summer is escaping us sooner than later.
we will be soaking up as much of it as we can.
listen to the humm of those cicadas’ sweet song. riding bikes. eating frozen yogurt.
we started our month off in new england,
completely falling in love with the foggy shores & crashing waves.
& before the months end, we will visit the city streets of chicago.
where will this month take you & what will it be filled with?

under the heat of that bright, warm sun.
counting all the colors of the rainbow, everywhere we look.
every new corner we turn, more color.
each morning waking up to our doorstep garden of cactus & plants.
best tacos on the planet. breakfast, lunch, & dinner.
sandals & sunnies. dusty feet & freckles.
i’d take that little purple house with all her little plants out back.
just a sneak peek from the wedding we documented this last weekend.
we cannot wait to share the rest of their day,
filled with thunderstorms, fields of wild flowers, & running through the woods.
