“Bright yellow sparks glisten around the landscape
Sheer environment expose
Warmth slinks down every step
So– Invigorating
Spur like rays muster in long light
The wolves wait to howl
Soon–Bunch of flowers
Huddle in with sunlit love
Luminous rave.”

Good-bye Summer. I guess I’m ready for Sweater Weather. 

My Future Home?

Adventures

Welcome to the most glorious home in Captain Jack’s wharf, also known as the the nation’s most beautiful row of bay bungalows. Located in the heart of Cape Cod, this home is almost persuasive enough to make me cheat on the West Coast. These cottages surrounded by the sea are maintained by their unofficial captain, Gregory Saint Jean. I’ve decided I am going to contact this man and demand to live in the lighthouse. Enjoy these pictures and fall in love just like I did!

Limited Edition Print!

Adventures, Artwork

So guys! I had the RADDEST opportunity to work with the non-profit Fight The New Drug to design a limited edition print for their store. FTND is an organization that provides information on the harmful effects pornography has on society today. They are an awesome group of people who have a wonderful insight on how to help our youth overcome their addictions.

Here is the link to the interview I did with their Social Media Director, Robbie Tripp:

and here’s where you can buy a limited edition print:

Today me and the siblings, minus Erin, (we miss you SOOO much) explored downtown a bit and went to Craft Lake City. I could’ve spent ages there. The artwork there was top notch. I ended up buying two prints, a bracelet, and a pair of earrings (I went a little overboard.) Although I was literally mesmerized by every artist, my favorite booths were Crow Leather Goods, My Little Belleville, Love Frida, and Bee Teeth. Check them all out.. you will fall in love. There was soothing live music everywhere, a bunch of trendy little families, amazing SLC artists, I was there with two of my fave people, and it was right in the heart of the city I call home. Can’t wait for next year!

Mini Golf Adventure

Last night I needed any excuse to get out of the house after staring at a screen designing all day. So Zach and I drove around trying to think of things to do. Bowling wasn’t gonna work because I have the sweaty hands syndrome so it always results in me getting way too frustrated and bailing. Then Z requested mini golf. Do people even mini golf anymore? Anyways, I was super stoked because I basically kick ass at it. We went to Cherry Hill to play (the place gives me the creeps, sorry for those of you who have lovely childhood memories here.) It was so fun! Zach actually kept score the whole time, something I’ve never done. We were pretty feisty the whole time. Zach’s really competitive, so he gets in your head and basically convinces you that you aren’t good. What a guy… Sadly, I ended up losing by only 4 points… so devastating. Oh well, he knows I’m better 😉 he just got lucky this time.

After I ripped up the score card, we grabbed some In n’ Out and called it a night.

Being home this week has been so wonderful. It’s been surfing and family time non-stop. Two of my favorite things. We’ve been surfing Old Man’s in San Onofre for the past couple mornings and the waves have been perfect (small and slow.) And of course, we finish off the surf session with a little Pedro’s. Hopefully we can figure out a way to move out here! I can’t stay away from the ocean too long.

SO while we’ve been in Newport, Zach has been learning how to surf. Gotta have a surfer boy husband! Hopefully he can stand up by the end of the week? Or we’ll just have to move here…. After surfing we headed to the US Open of Surfing to watch the girls’ heat. My girl Laura Enever was out there which I was stoked about. I love the Billabong and Roxy girls. We’ll probably be back there this weekend. US Open is always prime people watching and obviously great surf watching. I love being home. Wish I could stay forever!

I’m refusing to believe that summer will ever end. Looks like I’m going to have to move back to the beach before sweater weather creeps up on us all. Here are some gorgeous photos that have been my inspiration for the week. My husband and I are visiting California next week so I’ll have a lot more summer pictures/photoshoots for the blog. I’m so excited about all the positive feedback we’ve gotten for The Sailor’s Song. We have many wonderful changes coming your way soon, that we are really excited about. So keep posted!

All my love, The Sailor’s Song

For Utah’s good ol’ holiday “Pioneer Day” Zach and I visited the Red Butte Gardens. I don’t know how I’ve never been there before. It’s so close to us and SO beautiful. I felt like Alice in Wonderland. I could’ve wandered around there for hours. Zach took a majority of these photos…he’s getting pretty good with our new little gadget. Hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
