Small Town Explorations {Fourth Fun, Part 1}

Hello, dears!

Today I have some fun city photography for you for a change! I took a bunch of pictures when our cousins came to visit us on Independence Day weekend and we all went on a lovely day trip to a nearby town. As you’ll see, it’s quite an aesthetic and well-kept place, with plenty of excellent photography opportunities – from painted murals to vintage diners. Enjoy this little walk about town!

In Which I Meet a Pen Pal

Hello, dears!

GUESS WHAT? I recently got to meet one of my pen pals and blogger friends, the amazing Charis Rae! She and her family visited our farm and spent the night in our guest house last week, and we all had SO much fun together, ahhh!

Charis is pen pals with Megan and I, and her sister is pen pals with my sister Carmen. It was super neat to see each other in real life for the first time! The rest of our siblings got along wonderfully too, and it was just all around a lovely time. 🙂

Enjoy some of my favorite photos from their visit!

Summer Aesthetic + Playlist

Hello, dears!

You guys seemed to really enjoy my last playlist post, so here’s another one! This time I chose 18 summery, fun, upbeat songs that are perfect for road trips, outings with friends, or just for putting yourself in a summery mood. 🙂 

Since these songs tend to be more focused on happy melodies than deep lyrics, I’m not going to share my favorite lines this time – you’ll just have to discover some yourselves! Instead, I’ll tell a little bit about the song, accompanied by a link to a YouTube music/lyric video and a summery “polaroid” picture that (sometimes) goes with the song. You can find all the songs on Spotify as well. (Check the end of this post for a link to my full summer playlist!) And just so you know, all these songs are clean and family-friendly. 🙂

Now then! Unwrap that ice cream sandwich, put on your sunglasses, and let’s get listening.

Sweet Sixteen Barn Dance

Hello, dears!

Remember how one of our friends had a barn dance at our shop last year for her birthday party? Well, this year we did it again and it was SO much fun! The shop was a mess, so it was a good thing we had a dance motivating us to clean it up. 😛 I took plenty of pictures throughout the preparation and actual party, of course, and I hope you guys enjoy browsing through them!
