Good Reads: 31 July 2015

Hold the phone – tomorrow is August? 

It's a cliche thing to say but really, how did that happen? I can't believe the year is going by so fast. I mean, August, guys. That's nuts.

Lots of fun things planned for this first weekend in August, including at trip to Patchwork Market as well as a day trip to Raleigh. I can't wait to check out Raleigh Denim, Ramble Supply Co., and several other shops and restaurants I've been internet stalking for a while.

Thanks for your kind words and comments on my photos from our first month in the States, and for all of your awesome car recommendations. Glad I asked – this is one helpful bunch!

What are you up to this weekend? Whatever it is, I hope you have a great one and I'll see you back here next week or on Instagram in the meantime.

been listening to these guys a lot. 

hipcamp is the best idea. (thanks for spreading the word, joanna!)

a mid-summer reading list (including my favorite book of the year, so far). and p.s. – what are you reading? i'm always curious to know.

now this would be a cute gift at your next baby shower, etc.

thinking back to our summer trips to devon around this time last year.

eating up my new stationery set. nothing beats black ink letterpressed on white, as far as i'm concerned.
