Lake Tahoe Adventures!


Hi friends!  Sorry for the radio silence yesterday, we arrived in Yosemite and haven’t had much luck on finding cell reception- which is to be expected (and embraced!) of course.  It’s beautiful here, I’ll share more on that later.  But for now, photos from our time in Tahoe!  I’m sharing too many photos and details on our adventures for those of you who are planning a trip (and for those of you who are living vicariously…)  It’s an incredible place with so much to do and see, I know we’ll head back there again.  Hope you love!!!  xx- Sarah

Be Wild and Free


One of the things I love about our life on the road is that it requires us to simplify in major ways.  My closet in the RV is 18″.  I have a couple of small cubbies besides for the closet that I can store clothes in.  So it requires me to be highly selective in my packing, and to create a sort of capsule wardrobe for the road.  And there’s something beautiful about having so little to choose from- and something fun about mixing and matching every which way I can.  In this situation I find that simple pieces, paired with a few choice accessories, allows me to feel effortlessly well-styled.  And these black jeans are getting ALL of the wear.  We’re off to Yosemite today, but here are a few snaps from Tahoe (I have a backlog of Tahoe snaps to share, so look forward to more soon and another recipe post as well!!) Until then….xx- Sarah  {photos: Lou Mora}

Fig and Cheddar Grilled Cheese


Hello my friends, happy Monday!  How was your weekend?  Our was pretty magical-  hopefully you’ve been following along on my Instagram where I’m sharing all the incredible things we’re seeing!    We’re still in Tahoe- I don’t want to leave!  Saturday we hiked Rubicon trail- and since our RV is too long to be allowed in the park and we had to walk in to the trailhead, it ended up being a 17 mile hike.  I’ve never walked that far before- my legs ached and there were moments when I was so walk-weary that I thought I might rather sleep in the forest than take another step. Which made for an ENORMOUS sense of accomplishment when we made it back to our home on wheels!

All of that brings me to this meal- a fig and cheddar grilled cheese with a simple green salad. AKA the best thing I’ve eaten in weeks.  Food tastes great when eaten outdoors and even better when your legs feel like they’re going to fall off, apparently.  HA!  But seriously, if you haven’t cooked a grilled cheese on an actual grill (this was my first time) DO IT!  Do it now.  Figs are going out of season, so snap them up and make this sandwich, I promise you’ll love it.  Until tomorrow…. xx- Sarah  PS- yes that is me wrapping chocolate in roasted marshmallows with the biggest grin you’ve ever seen.  I’m quite happy here on the road, in the forest, beside campfires, and most especially when eating grilled cheese and marshmallows.  Life if good.

Lake Tahoe Style


Hi my friends, happy Friyay!!!!!  Our woodsy adventures are continuing in Lake Tahoe- it’s insanely beautiful up here!  I’ll share photos of the landscape soon- we’re wandering around taking a million photos today.  In the meantime, a quick style post for you.  I think I mentioned it before but I’m the nerd who wears plaid camping- always.  And I snagged this warm jacket since I own almost no winter clothes after years of living in the desert.  I’m having fun getting bundled up for the cold- we woke up to 40 degrees today!  Brrrrrrr!!!!  The dogs couldn’t wait to jump in our bed this am!  Hoping it’ll reach 68 by the afternoon so we can get out on a stand up paddleboard.  fingers crossed!   Have a great weekend, more soon…. xx- Sarah

Happy Thursday my friends!  As I mentioned before, we’re on the road again (horray!).  This time we’re exploring Lake Tahoe.  The drive up here was amazing, California never ceases to amaze me with it’s vastness, variety of landscapes and beauty.  I’m just in love.  We pulled over at this one spot on highway 395 and did an impromptu mini shoot.  This hat has been my saving grace as I haven’t washed my hair since we left (although a dip in the lake yesterday kind of counts, right?!)  I have to say, this RV was the best thing we have ever, EVER purchased.  I’m loving life on the road so, so much. Having our furry family with us, a kitchen and bathroom make roadtrips just a dream.  Today it’s rainng and we’re cozied up at our campsite listening to it hit the roof and on the lookout for bears.  It might be heaven.  More soon…. xx- Sarah

RV Adventures: Big Sur


I’m happy to finally be sharing our Big Sur adventures!  It’s such a spectacular coastline, and I’d never spent any time there before, only driven through, so I was so excited to set up camp for a few days and explore.  And now I’m so excited that I can bring you all along virtually- I’m sharing our favorite adventures below.  Hope you enjoy!  xx- Sarah
