i’m moving my blog!

home sunday cozy

it’s sunday morning + i have no idea what i’ve gotten myself into! i’ve set up my own space on the internet for self hosting and i think my new web hosting company is in the process of transferring my wordpress.com blog ( this blog you are on right now! ) over to my new space. all of this is so exciting + frees me up to do so much more, like to create a whole new website and keep my blog! but, warning! my blog may be a little crazy for the next few days, or disappear, or… I don’t know. in any case, this is fun stuff!!

i have been thinking about moving over to a self hosted website for about a year now, and i decided that since i am physically moving to another country, i might as well move my blog/website at the same time. make sense, right?

so, wish me luck + and hang on! don’t leave me or think that i have disappeared, depending on what happens. and… just a head’s up, you may have to choose to follow me again once i am moved over to my new space. but, i’ll keep you posted on the progress, i promise! until then, just keep checking back here. it should (hopefully) be normal for a while!

how are you spending your sunday/or monday?!

light + love xx

a video of our road trip: starring paige, lina, me & first aid kit!

first aid kit

there are perks to being married to a graphic design student. and one of the new ones is homemade videos. that’s right, my love has gotten into the groove of making videos  – and she is goooood. so, during our road trip to see first aid kit in concert this past weekend, she did a whole bunch of filming using her iPhone throughout our entire trip. and then she spent last night & this morning creating, editing, and finalizing an amazing and fun video of our trip! what a great way to preserve memories and laugh at how silly we are. i’m so excited and can’t wait to see what other videos she creates after this crazy, amazing, event-filled summer.

but, for now, check out this awesome 6 minute video of our weekend road trip!

peace and love. xx

disney world: incredible, imaginative epcot!

DSC_0460

day two of our week-long disney world party continued at the amazing world of epcot – a place of imagination, science, techology, and international flair. and let me tell you, we soaked it all in. every single stink in’ bit. it was a beautiful day to explore, ride rides, and visit all the countries, but when the sun went down it turned windy & cooooold, so we enjoyed a three course dinner in paris (hee hee) at a fabulous french restaurant and watched the fireworks from there. well, just check it all out!

we grabbed breakfast after a few rides and some starbucks coffee to warm us up. like i said, it was beautiful, but it was cold.IMG_7733

after some space and dinosaur stuff, it was time for the land area… and an amazing ride called soarin’ and then some more sun worship.

time for the countries!! they are all situated around a lake, so we planned to start on the left and walk all the way around. each country had authentic architecture and natives working in their stores/restaurants. it’s like taking a mini trip around the world. sooooo cool.DSC_0477 DSC_0482

as much as i have loved epcot and magic kingdom, i cannot choose a favorite between the two… and there are two more parks to go! all of them are so individually fantastic and inspiring. stay tuned till tomorrow, when i explore hollywood studios!
