our day at devil's lake

sometimes i just need to take a day and head to devil’s lake. it’s a short drive from our house and always puts things into perspective.
we packed some peanut butter, apple butter and pita for lunch by the lake.
popped popcorn for snack breaks in the woods.
and got lost climbing these rocks for a while. 
being in the trees just helps me remember what really matters.
the beauty of nature brings me straight back to what makes my heart soar.


ps. my first podcast! an audio interview with the totally amazing beth nicholls on her do what you love blog! i am completely flattered about this. beth interviews some incredible women and i cannot believe she asked me to be one of them! listen to our podcast and check out her super inspiring blog right here!

pps. in case you haven’t noticed, i’ve added an FAQ page to the navigation beneath my blog header, where you’ll find all of the details on my PRINTING + MAILING SUPPLIES! I’m sure there is a ton of other questions I can answer there too, so if you have any, ask away!

ppps. find all of the details for my upcoming HOW TO PAINT AN OWL workshop in the classes section of that same navigation or click right here!
