playa on the brain

In about 72 hours we will be here again. We have been seriously thinking and talking and planning and shopping and dreaming about this all year. We will be going with a bigger group this time around - 10 peeps total, 7 of whom are newbies. Can't see how they respond life in the desert!

I stole these photos from Instagram. So excited!

project life | week 30

{Jul 21-27}
full spread
Where has the summer gone? I can't believe this is from the end of July and it's already the middle of August! I am actually current with my album; just a bit behind on sharing ;)

Things of note that happened this week: R taught a led primary class on Sunday to honor Guruji's birthday. She had a great turn out in class and I hope we can do it again.

And a good friend texted me randomly on Friday night - I was already in my PJs but threw on a dress and met her and her fam for drinks. Her kids are so cute - definitely minis of her and her hubs!

right side
Just more random photos from the week. One thing I would like to do for the rest of the year? Hang out by the pool more! When you have one you take it for granted; when you don't you're always on the lookout for one!

Happy Tuesday :)

7 days...

27/30. A #tutu and #docmartens must mean prepping for #burningman #burningman2013 #ABeautifulMess #fromwhereistand
We are flying to Nevada next Saturday and returning to the Playa on Sunday for the whole week. Packing outfits for 8 nights in the middle of the desert is more difficult than it seems! I'm not sure if I have enough tutus ;)...

project life | week 29

{July 14-20}
full spread
Yes, we're in August and this is still July, but I am actually current in my album, just a little behind on posting. And I seriously am still in love with this project. Just photographing it is a bit of a pain ;)

left side
Lots of people photos this week. And I kept things pretty simple. The stitched card on the upper right pocket was made from an Amy Tan embroidery kit. I thought it was kind of fun.

right side
I am trying to include more random ephemera from the weeks so this time around I added a grocery list that Joe made (because of his purposeful misspelling of babaganoush) as well as the receipt. Otherwise a super simple spread to document an ordinary week. I've probably said this before and I'll probably say it again, but documenting life like this has made me more appreciative of the mundane. And that's a good thing.

summer vacation, part 3

Vegas, baby!
We stayed at the Encore, which was a fabulous hotel.

The last morning. 3 nights in Vegas is more than enough. We returned on Sunday evening and are still in recovery mode.
