After spending a night in Eureka Springs we headed to Devil’s Den outside of Fayetteville to hike and camp. We had amazing weather, saw lots of wildlife (including a few too many spiders) and really enjoyed some time in nature. Enjoy!
Last week Dale and I spent the week in Arkansas leading up to our friends Michael and Joanna’s wedding. One of my favorite parts was finally getting a chance to visit Crystal Bridges! If you are visiting Arkansas I would definitely recommend visiting. Here are a few of my favorite pieces we saw:
Some quick lettering inspired by a vintage sign I saw while in Eureka.
Hiking in Park City was one of my favorite parts of my recent trip to Utah! We were in town for my friend Joanna’s bachelorette weekend and I took these photos hiking in the Deer Valley Ski Resort. I would love to come back to this area to ski, too, but the perfect summer weather was pretty hard to top.
Last week I had the chance to visit the Love Letters Museum in Salt Lake City! I’m so happy it worked out to see the work of so many inspiring lettering artists in person. The exhibit is only open for a few more weeks but if you find yourself in SLC it’s definitely worth a visit!
We spent Dale’s last vacation week of the summer with a quick trip to Chicago to visit family and explore the city. My favorite parts were visiting The Art Institute of Chicago, making clover crowns and bagel breakfasts. I hope you get a chance for a quick summer getaway, too!
Summer is upon us and May is already coming to a close! This month started out with our California trip and so much has happened since then! This month I’ve been working hard on an internal project on top of some fun lettering assignments, Dale and I have celebrated two weddings (with another this weekend), we spent a weekend at the lake for my Grandma’s birthday, and I’ve been to lots of Holiday Mart meetings and a few Fusion classes. The rest of our summer will be much more laid back and I’m looking forward to time at home and (hopefully) the pool. This month I also loved The Everygirl’s Summer Bucket List. I’m definitely adding the DIY Popsicle to my summer to-do’s!
Speaking of the royals, this month Archie (in case you somehow missed it) was born!
Pretty mini-bundt cakes!
Morocco is high on my travel wish-list
Prosecco punch, perfect for a summer celebration!
A recipe I’m hoping to try!
Bookmarking this post for when I make it back to Santa Barbara
I’m fascinated by hanging florals, I just need to find the perfect occasion for some!
No rain no flowers, friends!
After a long drive through Big Sur we finally arrived in Santa Barbara. That evening we had dinner with family and then were off to bed. The next morning we stopped by the rose gardens near the Old Mission Santa Barbara before breakfast at Summerland Beach Cafe. Then we were on the road again!
Our last stop was LA! We spent two nights with friends in West Hollywood. Immediately after arriving we headed to grab ramen and then went on a quick hike up to the Griffith Observatory. That night we visited with friends and were up and going early Friday for a visit to the Getty Villa! The beautiful villa and grounds really did remind me of Italy and all the Greek and Roman artifacts inside are amazing. Our last evening was also spent visiting with friends during dinner in Santa Monica. I am so grateful we were able to fit in seeing so many people throughout the week and can’t wait for the next time we can head back!
