I’m loving this whole blogging thing so much that I’ve decided to move to my “om” sparkly new website! Yep, I’ve packed up all of my posts and images and am already moved in to the new site and some new additions have been added that you will enjoy. I’m so excited to share it with all of you! And I’m one very lucky gal to have a graphic designer/web developer for a boyfriend, who has been super supportive throughout all of this. Thank you, Sam. And thanks to all of you! I love that we’ve created a great little community here in this small part of the internet.

Summer is just starting to hit me! I was starting to worry I wasn’t going to be able to get into the summer spirit, but luckily my seasonal enthusiasm came just in time. I love putting together images of what is currently making me happy. So here are some of the things that I’m looking forward to and are inspiring me this summer.
-Watching Noah and Allie’s complicated, summer romance in The Notebook for the gazillionth time-
-Reminiscing of sunny days in Catalina-
-Tulsi mala beads: believed to have strong healing properties that bring peace and harmony to one’s life-
-Old-timey circus photographs-
-I like to imagine I’m in Bali when I’m practicing yoga-
-Eating mint-chip ice cream; my favorite!-
-Wishing I owned all of Reese Witherspoon’s costumes/outfits from Water for Elephants–
Uncle Sam and Ella; a dynamic duo I could not adore more. Poor Ella is the only child on our Silver Lake trips so she sometimes has no one to play with, except when Sam is around–then the playing really begins! I think Ella has a lot of Sam’s attributes, particularly their love of performing for others. He’s the perfect companion for her as he has no problem acting like a kid and doing the silliest things with her. The name of the game for the whole trip was “playing spy” on the grown-ups. Sam would give her “missions” and she’d earnestly complete them. And sometimes they’d go on operations together, like to spy on Papa while he washed the dishes. And I was there to capture it. I was all smiles and laughter behind the camera, while trying not to blow their cover. Mike was also holding back laughter, but playing along with it; he’s a good Papa. I couldn’t resist sharing this hilarious series of photographs with you.
