Winter Weekend in the Woods

Hi Lovelies! This last weekend Taylor and I spent a wonderful weekend in the woods near Mt. Hood. As always, we had an amazing time full of adventure and fun. We stayed in the quintessential mountain log cabin (built in 1937, charming, rustic, and oh so comfy), drank coffee at the river's edge, strolled through the snow to a hidden waterfall, and did a whole lot of snuggling by the fire. We always have so much fun and this trip was no different. Here are our Instagram reels from the weekend. Be sure to check out Row 4 to see pics of our awesome cabin! 
Row 1: Pics from our hike in the woods
Row 2: Just me being me :)
Row 3: Taylor and I, Taylor playing guitar 
Row 4: Our cabin!!! So cool!
Row 5: River pic is the view from the cabin's property! So beautiful! 
Next adventure coming soon! T minus six days- Taylor and I are off to Colorado for Thanksgiving!

Easy Hair Tutorial

This is my new go-to hair style for those lazy days when you just want your hair out of your face, but still looking good. It's as easy as 1, 2, 3, done! 30 seconds max!

All you need is a headband. Preferably use a headband that is not too tight. The tight ones tend to not stay in place. 

1. Place the headband on the crown of your head. 
2. Grab the loose hair below the headband. 
3. Tuck! Tuck hair wrapping it around the headband. If you have layers and some pieces fall, you can always tuck them on the sides of your head. This hides the headband a bit more. 
Voila! Easy as pie!

Adventure calling.

All I can think about is adventure. 
I must find it.
I need it.
Where is it?
I'm consumed by it.
I dream of it.

Where are you?
I'm melting without you.

I remember you. 
Sinking our hands in the sand together.
Running away giggling in the dark together.
Picking up sticks and fallen branches for the fire together.
Jumping, hand-in-hand, in the ice cold water together.

I look out my window and wonder, what are you doing?
Should I come find you?
Should I get up and go?
I want to.
I want to.

Let's break free together.
Run from monotony.
Fly away and explore the world, the state, the city
I don't care where, I just want to be free.

As you please.

Feeling like I want to do it my way today.

Weekend Beach Adventure.

Had a wonderful weekend at the beach with my guy. We spent the weekend lounging in the sand and exploring the many beaches of the Oregon coast. It felt amazing to escape from the city and slow down to appreciate the simple joys in life. Here are a few Instagram snapshots from the weekend:
The ocean really is a mesmerizing thing.

Take me to the ocean.

Heading to the beach with my guy for a weekend getaway! Can't wait to feel the sand between my toes! Beach adventures ahead! I'll be sure to share when I get back! Happy adventuring!

Gone adventuring.

 Going to play in the woods this weekend! Excited to find adventure, make new memories, and explore, explore, explore!

DIY Flower Head Wreath

It's beautiful outside. The sun is out. The flowers are in bloom. The berries are ripe. It's summer, a time to adventure and explore. But what to wear on these adventures? My vote is for the always in style flower head wreath. Whether you're off to a music festival, attending a wedding or going hiking in the woods, a little natural flower power never hurt anyone.

All you need is:

Floral tape
Flowers & leaves

*FYI:Dollar Tree has wire and floral tape

I've found a few good tutorials for making your own wreaths:

Personally, I would add a few feathers to the mix and maybe some ribbon too. 

Have fun! Happy exploring!

Just a note.

Found a lovely little note and flower attached to my windshield this morning. Pretty much made my day. Thanks babe :)Funny how the little things can mean so much.

P.S. The reference to 'a yellow weekend' just means a bright, fun, & adventure-filled weekend. A little inside joke for people that have taken the Insights Discovery personality profile 

Happy Friday!

I've noticed a lot of fox themed artwork lately... Must be the cool kids new animal of choice. So I thought I would share some of my favorite foxy pieces. All the artwork can be found at Society6 for pretty reasonable prices.

A day in the park

The Best Things in Life:
1. Curling up on the blanket
2. Playing on the swings
3. Grilling some grub
4. Running barefoot in the grass
5. Bumping sunglasses as you steal a kiss
6. Cloud gazing
7. Running through the sprinklers 
8. Slowly creeping the other off the blanket
9. Trying not to embarrass yourself throwing   
   the frisbee (blame it on the wind)
10. Drinking wine from a red cup

If this hasn't convinced you, I don't know what will! Go out and enjoy the summer with the ones you love most!

Don't forget to smile today!
Remember how lucky you truly are!

Yesterday's you.

It's easy to get distracted in this world. 
Too easy to lose our purpose 
or stray from our path. 
Sometimes we need someone 
or something 
to push us back, 
back on track, 
back on our own path. 
Don't forget who you are are, 
where you're going, 
and what keeps you moving.

Dangerous Dreams.

All people dream, but not equally.
Those who dream by night 
in the dusty recesses of their mind,
Wake in the morning 
to find that it was vanity. 
But the dreamers of the day are dangerous people,
For they dream their dreams with open eyes,
And make them come true.

          - D.H. Lawrence

Another move, another room

I'm moving again and I'm very excited. :) I'm moving back to the East side with a few great people. I can't wait. The house is great and you know I always love an opportunity to decorate a new space. So I  thought I'd share some design inspiration I've found for the new room. Enjoy!
