I’ll tell you a secret, there’s no secrets this year

4 May

Well there’s never any secrets with me to be honest but this year has been pretty life changing for me in many ways.  I’ve been all over the map and indulging in as much music, friendship/family time, travel, horseback riding and fun as possible.  One thing is for sure and that’s I’m not going to deny myself good times with the amazing people in my life.  Here’s another instagram post about my life as of late and the things that make me happy – Friday being one of them 🙂

Naturally, Coachella was life changing.

A small M83 show my work put together.  They sound SO good live.

Our family’s beautiful golden turned 11 years old this year!

I recorded with some great friend’s on an album!  Just a small part but I’m sure I’ll post it when it’s finished.  Definitely not something I’d ever thought I’d do but it was way fun!

NEON INDIAN!!!  Tahoe friends came down and we danced the night away to this AMAZING band.

I won some awesome jewelry from SF based LITTER.  I’ll be doing a shoot soon to showcase how much I love their stuff so hopefully I’ll be able to do it this weekend and post about it next week : )

Love this one.  We have very domestic date nights which consist of target nights, crafting and making dinners.

We. Met. Wally. from Gotye…. and he was the most adorable man.  He even invited us to his show which was a great live show.  I really love the Making Mirrors album.

Craft store perusing.

Lots of park lounging at lunch time.

Summer hair = no brushing allowed.  Time to be carefree for a few months 🙂

Inspire yourself.  I find quotes like this give me an extra push on some days.

We had an album listen of Rebecca Ferguson from the UK.  She’s about to launch an entire US press tour so you may not have heard of her but you will.  She’s extremely talented and I won’t forget her voice.

Our friend Rani is moving back to Texas 😦  I’ll miss her but now have a new travel destination of interest.  ❤

The weather is warming up in Northern CA!  I see more surf days in my future..

Wayne Brady stops by one of our stations.

A successful craft night with Chels.

It’s baseball season and any chance to spend outside with friends and family is a guaranteed good time.

Of course, you can’t forget about half of my heart.  Horses will be a good portion of my summer.

You might be able to find me here on warm days.

The best upper peninsula I’ve ever seen

3 Jun

I thoroughly enjoy my visits up to the upper peninsula of Michigan.  It is truly one of the most beautiful places I have been in the states.  I just got back last night but wish I could have stayed for much longer.  I flew into Marquette so the majority of my photos are from around Marquette but we did take a road trip to Houghton/Hancock where it is equally as beautiful.

The bridge over the Bayou to the beach.  Even though it’s Spring, the colors are still vibrant like the end of fall.

From Ian and his family’s back yard.  This is the walk down from the house.

Duke dog loves this place, too.

Frida’s flowers, she is quite the gardener and keeps the yard beautiful with flowers!

A June bug in the back yard.

The back yard… Lake Superior!

I love seeing this guy run free on the beach.  I like this photo too because he is in full gallop down the beach, ears flailing and all.

A storm was about to come through.

What an amazing place to play cards.  I just love looking out these windows.

They live on such an amazing lake.  I have so many photos of Lake Superior but somehow it always looks different.

Here’s the view from Founder’s Landing which is a really neat real estate project that Ian’s dad has invested in and his mom works on.   I will have to dedicate an entire post to Founder’s because I have a ton of photos of the development of this project from the past year or two that I have visited.  Here is a view from one of the upcoming condos.

Low tide.

The sand is so soft and fine on Lake Superior, I love walking barefoot in it.

Sun setting on Lake Superior.

I have MANY more photos to come but I’m exhausted, will catch up over the weekend :)!
