Keeping this short because things have been crazy this week. But I never got around to do a post on our New York trip, although I shared our day at the beach and happy hour with Chantilly. So here are some Instagram photos from that trip and other snaps from the summer.

Hope you’re having a good week!

Oregon Coast

Here’s some snapshots from our recent trip up to Oregon. You can see why we always try to schedule our trips up there in July, it’s the most beautiful place to be in the summer (in my humble opinion). This was my in-laws first visit to the northwest and I had so much fun showing off my home state. I feel so lucky to be from such an amazing, green, creative, and beautiful place and seeing others excitement for it made it extra fun. They were really blown away by the forests.

We spent a few days in Eugene, headed to the coast for a couple of days- on what may have been the most perfect day ever on the Oregon Coast, I showed them where I grew up, and wandered around Portland for a day. We also celebrated the double retirement of mine and Brian’s moms- a big congrats to them! :)

On the Rails

I really was born to travel. As far back as I can remember, I had dreams of driving through every state, flying to far away countries, and learning different languages- although that last goal changed after a few Spanish classes and realizing how hard it is ;) I feel so lucky to have found my match in someone that feels the same way, and is up for every possible vacation opportunity.

We travel to Oregon at least once a year to visit my family, and even though there’s the restfulness of a trip “home”, there’s still the excitement of finding new things to do, places to eat, and sites to see.

We drive by these tracks in Eugene on the way from my mom’s house to downtown. Obviously these aren’t passenger trains, but there is still one that goes through Eugene, and it got me thinking about train travel. We don’t even have an Amtrak stop in Phoenix, but I love the ease of traveling by train in Europe and the east coast and wish we had that option for quick trips.

Happy Hour with Chantilly

NYC with Chantilly
Day-with-Chantilly2

When we were in NYC a couple weeks ago I got to meet up with Chantilly for some afternoon drinks. She was one of the first friends I made through blogging, and when I found out we were going to be there this summer I wanted to make a point to meet for the first time. We even ended up wearing the same shoes!

While the friends I was traveling with hit up Katz’s Deli for lunch, I snuck away for some margaritas with Chantilly. It was a quick meet up, but we talked a lot, had a few drinks, and even managed to squeeze in some photos. It was a new experience for me to take outfit pictures in the city with so many people walking by, and I definitely had some awkward moments, but Chantilly was a pro :) It was so much fun- I wish we had more time!

A big thank you to Chantilly for all of the photos! To see more of our day together, check out her style post here, or her recap here.

Beachy Keen

Coming home from vacation is HARD. It takes me just as long to settle back in as I spend on vacation. 1 to 1 ratio, at least. Vacation posts are always the most difficult too- sorting through countless photos, and trying to summarize everything you packed into a few days.

The first half of our New York trip was spent on (in?) Long Island for the wedding that motivated the trip. Out of all my trips to NYC, this was my first time spending a day at the beach and it was so hard to believe we were only an hour from the biggest city in the country. It was only about 80ยบ, which was perfect for lying on the beach, yet the water was still warm enough to swim.

Long Island beach day

The water stayed shallow pretty far out so we waded around most of the afternoon. We literally stumbled on this giant crab and some of his buddies which definitely made me watch where I was walking the rest of the way back. We also saw a bunch of ladies tanning with their chairs facing the parking lot. I guess if you live near the beach you don’t appreciate as much? Not much of a view…

You guys, I realllly want to live near the beach! If you do- please go every day and take advantage of it! This Arizona girl is jealous :)
