    Tuesday’s Adventure: Camping! Part Two.

    As you know, my family and Mr. Owl and I went camping a few weekends ago (if you didn’t see it, part one is here.) On the last day, we headed out of Kalaloch to Ruby Beach, and on the way, we stopped by what was (I think) just called “Big Cedar Tree”. Which… it was. Huge. What you see in the above picture is only about half of the base of the tree. I was absolutely mesmerized by its roots. They were twisted and straight, rough and smooth, a poetry of entanglement and contrasts. Nature is seriously amazing. Mr. Owl decided to climb around the tree without touching the…

    Friday Links

    Moss; tiny barnacles.¬† Weekend Cuteness: You totally need to see this kitten and this bunny wrestle. (Warning, cuteness overload) Lazy Walruses! (Am I the only one that wants to scratch their bellies?) Weekend Weirdness: Mrs. Doubtfire recut as a horror film. Simulatiously hilarious– because we all know Mrs. Doubtfire isn’t a horror movie– and kind of creepy. Weekend Giggles: This girl doesn’t get how automatic doors work. Dogs… are weird. Weekend Food: Not really a recipe, but I totally want to make a Killer Whale cucumber. I want to make pretty cupcakes like this. (You should just browse Sweetapolita’s entire website. SO pretty. So tempting. I need to bake more.)…

    Camping! Part one: the road trip, a rock, and some trees

    Yesterday, I burst into tears because we had no bread, and then I tried to laugh at myself because I knew it was a stupid thing to cry about… but that only sufficed to make me cry more. Because nobody likes to be laughed at when they’re crying, even if they’re the ones laughing at themselves. (Can you guess what week of the month it is?) Suffice it to say… I have no outfit pictures. What I do have, however, is pictures from my family’s camping trip to Kalaloch Campgrounds! It was one of the most fantastic camping trips I’ve ever had– partly because Mr. Owl got to come along,…

    Fish in trees

    ¬†Details: Shirt ($3.99), camisole ($1.99), and skirt($2.50), thrifted; shoes (unknown, under $10), Target; necklace, gift. Approximate outfit cost: ¬†$18.48 My brother bought me this necklace. I rarely wear it, since its chain is quite long and I prefer my necklaces to fall just below my collarbones. But the neckline of this shirt is perfect for a longer necklace. I went out for coffee with an old friend this morning, and had planned to do one of those picture an hour posts… until I realized that the rest of my day was incredibly boring. So instead, you get a picture-an-hour for the first half of my day. That should be enough.…

    These are a few of my favorite things

    There was a really lovely breeze yesterday, so I decided to haul some of my favorite wardrobe pieces and accessories outside to take some pictures and share with you a few of my favorite things. Found at an antique store for $12. I’m afraid to wear it. It’s really delicate. Found at Goodwill for like… $7. I never wear this, either. It’s good for photoshoots, though. Given to me by my bride-friend for being in her wedding. Authentic 1940’s cocktail dress. I looove it. I have yet to wear it anywhere. Goodwill. $15. Local thrift store. $5… or maybe, maybe $6. This was… seven or eight dollars? Goodwill… again. Vintage…
