on my mind: a day in the mountains 06.06.2012

As Morgan said, summer vacation and getting away from our hectic schedules is front of mind for both of us, and in my case it will be a reality before long. We aren’t hitting the beach though; we’re heading to the mountains. So, I thought I’d share my wishlist for the trip. The only thing that didn’t make the cut here is a hiking backpack/ baby carrier. I’m not sure which one to get for toting around our guy on our (not-so-challenging) hikes.

    I was just asking my family yesterday if they wanted to meet for a mountain vacation next month! I hope it works out – I could use a relaxing vacation, too! Enjoy yours!

print & pattern: Moroccan inspiration 01.31.2012


oh yes, we kind of feel like we NEED both of these little numbers…although, we have to let you know right off the bat, the prices are not the most friendly. So for now, we can dream….we spotted these Sass & Bide shorts on pinterest last night and had already been dreaming of this gorgeous Agadir Twists Rug. We’re thinking we might need to be sent to Morocco to get inspired for some future surface patterns, right? These are just perfection!
