SLIDER

Hello!

My name is Erika. I'm in love with making art, collecting old things & chasing after my two kiddos. This blog is a peek into my happy accidents & plots of total world domination.

Lost in the woods.

I wanted to show you some of my photos from my woodland adventure.  In the summer I just love piling in the car with the hubs and the pups for a road trip and stay out the woods.  I just think there is something just so special about rolling down the window, putting on the shades, cranking up the tunes and hitting the road. 
We sat in the sun and lounged with the little pug monsters.  The pups left no tree, grass, and bush untouched. lol  There are lots of forest creatures that have left their finger prints all over the yard.  So the pups think it's their responsibility to reclaim their turf- I know they are very rough and tough. they wear spiked collars.. shh don't tell them otherwise- they are both very sensitive bad boys and have been to known to cry if they don't get enough cuddling.
We played some summer games (bean bag toss), BBQed, and watched old movies.  We stayed up late and laughed until our sides ached. The puggers were so exhausted  from running the yard and chasing after bugs, they slept the whole car ride home.
So many amazing summer memories for this summer :) I think it's all about the little amazing moments that make this summer so memorable.

that looks like a sweet spot to just hang out, relax, expect nothing, do nothing, ask for nothing except a little sun, a little breeze, and peace.

whereabouts in the world?

I'm with you! Roadtrips can be pretty magical. I love the chats with the hubs in the car. Something always comes up that we wouldn't noramlly talk about otherwise! Your pugs are adorable! I have a Chug myself. She is part Chihuahua, part Pug.

That looks like a wonderful day! I know I have said this before, but your pups are the cutest guys ever! Pugs seem to have such attitudes- you know? I love them so much. There is actually a pug rescue here in Maryland and as soon as I live in a place where I can have a pet, I'm gonna be rescuin' pugs left and right. :) Lovely photos, my dear!

Happy Wednesday!
