End of Summer Road Trip


I’m excited to share a few of our vacation snaps from a recent trip to Lake Powell today!  I’ve never experienced anything quite like it- the lake is like a maze, with little inlets that have canyon walls that tower up on either side, and crystal clear waters with orange sand beaches.  These photos don’t do it justice, sadly.  It’s one of those places where you just feel so tiny and you’re reminded again how amazing our planet is, how fortunate we are to have places like Lake Powell to explore.  Please go for a visit if you ever have the chance, I know you’d love it.  Happy trails everyone!  xx- Sarah

Inspiring Spaces – Melbourne


We all survived Monday!  Do you feel that way this week, that surviving yesterday was a major accomplishment?  Because I do.  Like, someone should probably hand me a gold plated statuette of a superhero.  I would also accept a plate of cookies, let’s be honest.  But enough about that- today is a new day and this is a beautiful home to be inspired by!  I hope you love as much as I do.  xx- Sarah {images via}

Final Days of Summer


Ok, I’m not letting go of Summer just yet, the bike riding weather is just too good!  But I figure- just add boots for a little nod to Fall, right?  These boots and a number of different pairs of denim shorts have been in heavy rotation lately.  Like, maybe an embarrassing amount of heavy rotation.  Lou recently told me I should do a major closet clean-out because “all you wear is jean shorts anyway”.  HMPH!!!!  I WILL NOT!  But really, Fall should take over quickly because he’s 85% right.  (insert worried emoji face here).  xx- Sarah
