oh, cupcake

while in palo alto shopping, we stopped for one of these.

it was delicious. it made my heart (and tummy) happy.

i adore sprinkles' vanilla cupcakes.

while in the bay area visiting g&g, grandma and i went to see this.

i loved it. so did grandma. it was refreshing.

yesterday caroline and i saw this.

meryl streep was fantastic.

lake powell

we went to lake powell for 5 days in june. my family plus aunt mary, madeleine, annabelle, and lucy had a great time at the lake.

we survived the intense heat and didn't rack up as many generator hours as you would think... yeah, we're tough.

i learned how to slalom waterski... i was pretty impressed with myself. (i won't mention the fat ski or the cheater rope. and no that is not me in the picture. its christian. someday if i practice really hard maybe i could attempt to make cuts like that.)

we hiked some slot canyons. went on many ice runs to hall's crossing, swam, read books, played games, and listened to some good tunes.


little lovelies

meet my latest obsession:

letterpressed stationery

yes, it is classy.
