"Upon this stump...

... sat the most beautiful bouquet of flowers."
What a wonderful September Saturday. A cool 75 degrees, with a light breeze and cotton candy skies. I could have been a bit more active, but hey it's my first day off in 5 days. I deserved to sit still and relax.
I had the pleasure of house and dog sitting again this weekend. This time it was out in the country. My only complaint was no internet and spotty phone service. I think the view, open spaces, fresh air and the abundance of flowers more than made up for what it was lacking.
The dog sitting job ended a day earlier than expected, so I packed up my things and took a [short] road trip to my parents. This trip involved 45 min of Led Zep, Tom Petty, Eagles and ACDC on the stereo with my windows down, ball cap on backwards, with my favorite sunnies. If I snap chatted you, you know what it was like- you're welcome. xo

This past week I came across a new obsession: Latte Coconut Water. Oh my wow. I've been attempting to make my own, and I finally got it down pat.
1 cup cooled and chilled coffee (or 1 shot espresso)
1/4 cup coconut water
1/8 cup milk (a splash will do)
1/2 teaspoon of sugar for a bit of sweetness (or as much as you need. I'm SO over sweet coffee)

Make certain all ingredients have been pre-chilled. Otherwise it will be too watered down.

Another obsession- my Stella and Dot Somervell and Christina Link necklaces. Check out below.

Oh- and watch out for the bees. They're the bees knees yo.

  1. You look gorgeous in these photos as always!
    Those bees scare me! They look very intimidating!

  2. Gorgeous flowers (did you hand pick them?), gorgeous views, gorgeous necklace, gorgeous lips, and gorgeous you!! :)
    Did you house sit your parents house, or was it a friend's?
