alive + well

travel & adventures on beetleandfig.com
 
it’s terribly hard to know where to start since enduring such a long pause here.
we have been missing & dreaming about this space a lot lately, though.
life is so full, so beautiful.
we have so many adventures, images, & stories to share from the past few months.
& so many new dreams. many things we are excited about for this fresh, new year.
we have been stomping all over the states. holding hands everywhere we go.
meeting new faces, & laughing with old friends.
standing in awe over ocean waves, giant snowflakes, bustling cities, & towering trees.
we have been feeling more & more like home in our new space. home is so good.
you can find us snuggling & drinking tea nonstop.
sitting at our little park across the street, listening to the magnificent, crashing waves.
constantly trying to learn, & re-learn lessons on slowing down, breathing. less work, more life.

4th of july + we resolve

4th of july on beetleandfig.com
 
finally getting back to reality over here,
we spent some time in florida & then headed to iowa for the long holiday weekend.
& it was such a good fourth with our family.
so many childhood memories & feelings always flood back for me on the fourth.
unplugged, our cameras packed away the entire time.
it was a much needed break & a beautiful time with ones we love.
 
>>> i wrote a little bit about what the fourth of july
means to me over on the lovely We Resolve blog.
