i think i might have said this before, but my jeep is hands down the best thing i’ve ever purchased. i’ve only had it a year and it’s taken me on so many adventures.. i’ve given hundreds of jeep waves, gone through every muddy puddle, and drove on so many roads with the windows down and the radio up. you don’t know that feeling until you’ve ridden in a jeep, let me tell ya.
last week we went to the river to celebrate these two girls birthdays and spent some quality time with jolie before she left to start her new journey in montana. i already miss her tons but i know she is going to have such a great adventure. it was a nice last hurrah before i start back to work on monday. so many memories have been made here, the river will forever be my favorite place.
i miss this girl so much already! our sunset adventures will always be my favorite, hopping in my jeep, pulling over on the first dirt road we find and taking loads and loads of photos. there’s something about the high desert at sunset(and right after it rains), it may be the desert, but it sure has it’s beautiful moments. we could have spent hours out here, but perfect lighting just goes away so quick. i think our next sunset shoot should be at the beach surrounded by palm trees.. what do you say, meg?
p.s. my shirt/ the adventure project
“um excuse me nice looking ikea worker, can you take a photo of us? wait.. just let me awkwardly climb into the basket first…. okay we’re ready” i’ve been a little MIA lately but that’s because i’m moving! my friend chloe and i just got an apartment down by the beach and we couldn’t be more excited to officially move in next week! we adulted hard in ikea the other day, and by that i mean we drifted the shopping cart around the store and bought a toilet bowl brush. #winning hello real world, please be good to us. ps. we are going to be starting a youtube channel where we vlog all our new adventures, so be on the look out for that to stay updated on our lives!
um, first, how did july get here so quick!? i am pretty sure this year is flying by quicker than last year. anyway, next to christmas, 4th of july is my favorite holiday (it may or may not be the reason my jeep is red, so it can be festive for both)! for the past few years i have gone out to lake mead with some family friends, we take the boat out, barbecue, play corn hole, and let off our own fireworks, it’s tons of fun! my nonna would be very proud of this outfit, levi shorts, bruce springsteen (her favorite singer ever) on my shirt, and a kimono. she was a hippie for years and some of that flower child gene was definitely passed down to me.
on tuesday this one (along with four others who are near and dear to me) got on a plane to spread God’s love to the people in Haiti. i am so proud of her and can’t wait to hear about how the Lord used her on this trip. my outfit|

i’ve been wanting to make my own popsicles for the past like, five summers, and i finally went bought a popsicle mold last week. these are the first ones i made, and they turned out so yummy! and they are totally healthy and super easy to make, so win, win!
-one cup plain yogurt
-one cup blueberries
-one cup spinach
so easy! just mix all the ingredients in the blender, pour into the mold, and then pop in the freezer until frozen! seriously so good, i can’t wait to make more!
you know you are true friends when the first time you hung out you got in a little fender bender on the freeway and had to calm each other down, you’ve survived countless boring staff meetings (and been yelled at, at a few), and gone on so many spur of the moment adventures together. oh and ’cause of that one time i waited with her until her husband got home so she wouldn’t have to sleep on the front porch (like she was going to) because she was locked out of her house. but seriously, she calls me up and decides we are going to drive to the middle of nowhere, with no service, to take sunset pictures on the side of a road.. how could i say no to that!?my outfit|
