The weather was very hot but the scenery did not disappoint. We visited the Yosemite Valley, Merced Grove (sequoias) and Hetch Hetchy. Also hiked to Carlon Falls and hung out there. A must see! Hope y’all have a great trip!

As for flooring, have you ever seen epoxy rocks? It’s small polished pebbles mixed with epoxy and smoothed onto floors. A pretty, natural and durable flooring. My brother had them in his Idaho home.

I especially loved the Taryn Brumfitt one! I am so there with the hating my body thing and I watched a related video where she gives tips on how to reframe your thoughts about your body and they were so helpful! Thank you for sharing that! I also appreciated the article on the parenting crisis. My mom just recently told me about the article but this was my first chance to read it. It really rang true to me. I’ve been trying to work on some of those things with my own kids previous to seeing this, and it’s nice to see some validation. Your road trip sounds like a blast! I loved road tripping when I was a kid! I hope you guys have a great time!

Fantastic, courageous. It made me pause and wonder what one word I would use to describe my body. I decided on “powerful.” I plan on sharing this video with my 3 daughters. Thanks.

It’s a bit more laid back than Bozeman and the people are friendly. There are great rivers to float, wonderful farmers markets, good food and in general fun experiences. I love where I live. Let me know if you want more info. Happy to help.

Looking forward to following along on instagram :)
Enjoy Point Reyes tonight. It’s such a beautiful place.

And many of the kids I went to school with went to Germany as exchange students themselves. Some stayed for the full school year and other for a “short” exchange of 10 weeks or so.
I would love to send my kids on an exchange when they’re older. Actually, I’d prefer to go with them and experience life in another country as well – which is actually what we’re doing right now :)

I would feel so uncomfortable sending my children off to their friends’ places for more than a week or two! It is such a great experience for the kids, but I would feel crippled with anxiety that I would be burdening the hosts.

The whole picture reminds me of a painting by Vermeer, with that crips light (don’t know if you know what I mean…)

I also love the little stairs. What do you use them for?

A good weekend to all.
