Music of the Day: La Luz

I cannot get over how much I dig these girls! I may be a little late to the game, but I can't stop listening to La Luz's 2013 album "It's Alive". Choosing a favorite song is next to impossible- they really are all that good. I'm sharing this one because I also love the styles rocked in the low-key video. Something about their sound makes me feel like I'm being filmed film-noir style while surfing just off a Texan coast somewhere. This is certainly going to be one of those albums that keeps me going all year long! Hope you enjoy it, too!

Up North: Bits and Pieces

It's been a busy past couple of weeks! I can't believe summer is already coming to an end and my final semester of classes begins in a few short days. I don't feel ready at all, but I'm glad that I got to go home for a visit while I still have the time. Here are a few of my favorite photos from my trip up north:

I'm so thankful that I got to make it up north for a short camping trip with my sister and my cousin! Few things compare to the satisfaction of a perfectly roasted marshmallow. I ate more than I care to admit! 

This little leopard frog hung out on my hand for a good ten minutes. I love all outdoor critters, but these little guys have always especially thrilled me. I'm now a grown woman, but I still get exciting about catching frogs! 

We had a wonderful dinner and multiple delicious breakfasts of potatoes and herbs from my family's backyard garden. Homegrown veggies complete my summer! Having a garden is the best, and I hope to plant one of my own at my new place next summer. 

Speaking of my new place...boy, moving sure is exhausting! I just spent a week up north, but now I'm currently on a bus back to Grand Rapids. When I get home, I'll return to the seemingly endless journey of unpacking. I did get my bookshelves and a few frames hung up already, so I'll post some photos shortly! I'm already loving having a full size kitchen and I can't wait to share more cooking adventures with you! 

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend!
