I love that she has confidence to march to the beat of her own drum...and that we had the beach to ourselves so she could wildly throw sand.

This mighty one has gone from straight hating on the beach to requesting it daily and I’m loving it.

Golden Autumn ll. 12x9”. Soft Pastel!! SOLD!! A beautiful slough in Cap Tourmente! Marshy wildlife refuges are so peaceful and calming! They always remind me how we are all part of something bigger than ourselves!

There’s no point in sleeping in when this moment is possible.


Twinkle twinkle little star ✨ My first try at night photography. Not too shabby, if I do say so myself. #bragging.

A delicate balancing act. That pretty much sums up life in the desert. We made our first ever visit to Joshua Tree National Park today. Beautiful desert landscape. Intense sun. The hiker ahead of us in the final pic had the perfect accessory - a sun-blocking and -reflecting umbrella. Great hike up the Boy Scout Trail to the Willow Hole Trail and then out and back. Lots more to explore here!

What’s your favorite National Park east of the Mississippi?
We give a lot of love to the large, wild, Western National Parks - but there are so many great parks further east, too!
