I just adore this girl. She’s the bee’s knees. She’s the sweetest puddin pop in the pack. After our first colorful fall gallivant, we went up to the Dee Wright Observatory via the scenic bypass near Sisters, Oregon. It’s a short drive and totally worth the little, gorgeous detour — but, the road closes off for the [...]

I can’t say enough about the sweetness of these two and their genuine and everlasting, unconditional connection. Magnetism. Joy. Happy tears. Kind words. Happy five year anniversary. Photographed in the Big Summit Prairie in Oregon, the Ochoco Forest, the Oregon Cinnabar Mines, an abandoned hotel in a ghost pioneer town with old cabins dating back to [...]

Happy Memorial Day! Crystal is an incredibly strong woman who served our country in active duty for nine years. She’s amazing: I had a wonderful and inspiring two days to be mesmerized by her incredible stories and adventurous travels. I’m so happy she stayed an extra day so we could also enjoy a little hike [...]

I opened up shop! — it’s a humble, little Instagram order-by-comment collection for all the vintage treasures for women that i’ve collected over the years. I’m so excited to have a home for others to reclaim these pretties and give them a loving home. Enjoying browsing! RURAL RECLAIM http://instagram.com/ruralreclaim

Been listening to this one for a while now, it’s more than worthy of a post here as it’s one of the most beautiful albums I’ve ever heard. Light some candles, dim the lights. Cook dinner, sip wine. Tear up. Feel your heart’s well overflow. Matthew Perryman Jones – Land of the Living

I don’t mean to be judgmental here, but if you haven’t given a listen to Norwegian music in your lifespan, you’re a moron. No, not a moron. I kid, I kid. As you may or may not know, I lived in Norwegia (hah!) a couple years ago and what I learned is that about half [...]

I’m shocked at how many people still haven’t heard of or seen Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom. It’s such an incredibly wonderful film. That is all. Oh, and one of my favorite designers, Jessica Hische, created the fonts for this film. Go watch it in theaters while you still have the chance. Now, really, that is [...]

In my last shoot, I shot a roll of 35mm film; the scanning isn’t the greatest since it came from a local lab, but I just love the look of film — especially when it captures water. Mmm. I love the little drop falling from her finger tip. Speaking of film, have you seen the [...]

I have a lot going on right now — a big move to one of my favorite cities on earth, Bend, OR, blog designs, weddings to process, etc. — and I’m feeling so inspired. I feel like life is so full in such a good way, I’m not as overwhelmed as I usually would be. This [...]

Despite our sporadic spring blizzards, it’s feeling more like summer here in northern Arizona. I’m making good use of the backyard hammock, wearing my favorite & most comfortable platforms ever manufactured. I rarely buy myself new shoes (I prefer the thrifted, unique variety) — but Sear’s online shoe department did me right — $19 and [...]

I’ve recently taken up the practice of taking full weekends off. It restores me–especially when I find little treasures like this on the side of a back road. I am grateful for my weekend wanderings and for the friends and loved ones that choose to share the journey with me. Between Williams, AZ and Flagstaff, [...]
