emptying our minds out by the ocean

i recently took a trip up to the northwest to visit my mom and family. the weather was impeccable and it was such a treat to just travel with francesca. there is something so nice about a solitary road trip and time spent surrounded by water. i am heading back up this week and am dreaming of a repeat of fresh seafood, whale sightings, and lots of walks in the forest.


  1. Looks like a relaxing time with your little one. Beautiful photos.

  2. There's nothing better than the seaside... What a magic photos!

  3. Beautiful photos. I agree, the mind and soul needs a getaway in nature from time to time.

  4. That second to last picture looks a lot like Coupeville. Pretty pretty. I love the northwest. I'm glad you were able to travel with Francesca and spend that special time together.

  5. There's something about the ocean just relaxes me! We were there just last night :)

  6. What is it like living away from your parents? I yearn to move away from my home state, but have mixed feelings about not being a short drive from my parents. Especially with my young girl who is so attached to them.

    (I'm in awe of your words and lifestyle with your family. I hear a peaceful soundtrack when I read your posts and look through images.)
