i simply cannot believe that next month is september.
summer happened in a blink, but was filled with much sunshine + adventure, so i can’t complain.
aside from being farther from loved ones, one of the very hardest thing to move away from when we headed to southern california was saying goodbye to autumn weather.
the crisp air, crunchy leaves, bulky sweaters, snuggling, warm tea all of my heart.
we feel so grateful that our work travels will be taking us to so many autumn filled places over the next few months.
this year, and hopefully future years, we can live the best of both worlds, weather-wise.
we are currently packing up our bags for six weeks! holy moly, feeling a bit overwhelmed by that.
see you soon nyc, door county, kansas city, + northern ca!

“though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us, or we find it not.”

“life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “wow! what a ride!”

summer is here, filled with so much glory.
sunshine, salty air, late nights.
the smell of sunblock + swimming.
we honestly haven’t experienced much summer yet because we have been busy working away on our vintage RV & dreaming up some grand adventures.
our first road trip will be in exactly one week to celebrate the fourth & my birthday.
we are headed up the coast to watch the fireworks over San Francisco.
this playlist is filled with sweet sounds of road trips, campfires, & sunshine.

grappling through the thick fog, reaching above our heads as we climbed higher.
the weight of the moment as heavy as the fog hugging our bodies & filling the air.
my hand in yours, tiptoe to the edge.
hushed laughter swirling around in the air with the sound of crashing waves below.
one of my favorite memories of all time, one of my favorite memories next to you.
