i thought today was a good day to play catch up!
here are some photos from the summer

Drove up to Ojai with Kate for the night. Picked fruit from the orchards, kale and blueberries from the garden. And went home with a bag full of my favorite sage.

4th of July at the Muller/Faison's. Tons of kids, sparklers and a dance party! Perfect! (Grace on the left)

Spent all the time I could with Ann and her family before they left for Vermont for a year. This is Frances with a tiny praying mantis we found outside, she named it Miss Speedy Roo Muller. Photo on right is from Grace's piano recital, drawing by Dave Muller. 

Getting into the studio every chance I can get between all the traveling. Ava keeps me company, she's a good studio assistant. On the right, making lots of cards for lots of birthdays this summer. 

Sunset after breathwork. Lil' Miss Ava napping. 

I made Palm Springs tote bags for my brother and all his friends for his 30th birthday. 

Indigo! With Britt Brown at Shelter Half. Part of the Midsummer Nights Crafts put together by Lili

Weekend in the desert! Palm Springs, and sunset in Joshua Tree {magical}

Midsummer Party at Shelter Half! I put on some New Order, my fave! Foxtrot, Foxtrot, Foxtrot... And the table with some drawings (soon to be in the Etsy store... I promise)

Bachlorette weekend up north! Hikes and laughs and all night dance parties! On the right Christopher and I jump with love for CR! (photo by Christine) 

Day at the beach, swimming in the ocean. I found two really special rocks.
