Friday Favorites

This photo is one of my favorites – my dad, grandpa, and some guy behind that pole.  Being on the water is such a happy part of the summertime. 

I am so excited about all the little side projects and collaborations and contributions that I’m happy to throw out into the world.  It’s fun, I’m doing things I love, and staying so very busy.  And, so very tired lately!  I think it’s the heat, staying up late and waking up early, and not enough coffee.  I have a grand plan to tackle the beginnings of a cabinet makeover in the kitchen this weekend…we’ll see how that goes.  The lake and sprinklers, birthday parties and lazy brunches just may take priority.

Here are some things I’ve been watching, eying, and adoring:

I love this lady’s hair!  And this braid, too!   I am adoring braids, thinking back to the days when I would have my mom braid my hair, right up until I moved out of the house for college.  Whenever I visit, I’m still always trying to get her to braid my hair.  I guess I’ll just have to try out this tutorial today!

If you haven’t watched this yet, you must!  It gets me all weepy and sentimental for California, and the outdoors in general.

Addicted to the wood category here.  So lovely.

Just got this beautiful print of the Kalamazoo neighborhoods.  If you live here, or ever did, you should get one!

I’m feeling gutsy, and I think I want to paint something like this pattern on the wall of our staircase.

Happy Weekend!  Happy Summer!

    My mom used to braid my sister’s hair and for dance competitions they often used the crown braid. Love! I loved it so much I learned to do it myself, and often use that style, and it impresses people every time.

    I love that picture of your dad. It makes me love photography, because those pictures of our parents when they were young are so dear.
