Photo Friday on Saturday

Hi friends! I have so many recent photos to share, but this is my favorite.

Atticus and I went on a solo hike to Rampart Reservoir last weekend. It’s such a beautiful place, and I’d highly recommend it. To get to the reservoir proper, you have to pay $6. It’s totally worth it if you want a good hike around a beautiful reservoir full of wild flowers and staggering rock formations. If you just want a great photo opportunity, take a right at the fork in the road instead of a left toward the reservoir road. Follow that road for about 45 minutes, and there are two places where you can pull off the road for some of the most scenic views I’ve ever seen in Colorado. You’re welcome ūüôā

Warmly,

Maegan

I love everything about this sign, especially that it rotates. I found it walking around downtown ¬†Seattle on a cold, rainy day. There were a lot of rookie mistakes that happened later that night that I’ll share in another post. Despite that, it was a wonderful adventure.

P.S. I posted this on Instagram and A Beautiful Mess liked it! Guys, they are my blog idols. I’ve been a reader since 2011. If you haven’t read their blog, go check it out!

For this trip to Taos, I didn’t bring any hair¬†product. I just put my hair in a bun after I showered. About four hours later, I took it down to see what it was doing naturally. Apparently, my natural hair looks a lot like Spencer Reid from Criminal Minds, circa seasons 2-5. I caught a glimpse of my hair plus Ray Bans in a store window, and I had to take a picture. I guess it’s an easy, go-to Halloween costume. I just need a crossbody satchel, a revolver, and some statistics about serial killers.

I took this at the International Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque in October 2015. This was the first time I was able to make it to the park in time so I didn’t have to watch the take off from the highway. There’s something magical about hot air balloons. Maybe that’s because I have no idea how they work. Which is perfect so I can stay curious.

Happy Friday, friends!

Found in Soho in NYC. My friend, Sophia and I were aimlessly wandering around NYC for thrift shops and vintage stores when we stumbled across this. It was right outside of one of the most kitschy and wonderful thrift stores I’ve ever found. There weren’t that many people around, so we were able to move freely about the cabin. Unexpectedly deserted streets and shops is one of my favorite things about NYC. I can only take the no respect for my personal bubble thing for so long. Empty stores and streets are a nice reprieve from the otherwise fast-paced, frenzied atmosphere in NYC.

Happy travels,
Maegan

One of my favorite kinds of pumpkins to decorate with are the white pumpkins. They are the slightly classier version of the time honored orange pumpkins. They look striking when you paint them as well. One year, I painted the top halves gold or turquoise. They made such a nice addition to my fall decor.

But look at these mini white pumpkins that I found at a local farmers’ market in Oklahoma City. I have so many ideas for them!

Okay, this will be my last autumn themed post for a while! Promise!

Warmly,
Maegan

I took this on my first long solo road trip. This is one of my top ten travel memories. I had just left the beach on Tybee Island. There was sand and salt in my hair and on my body. I had the windows down and I was listening to Swing Tree by Discovery. The salty sea breeze gently blew my hair around my face. And I felt totally and completely free. As the sun set in the background, I could see the moonrise in front of me. It was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. The variation of colors in the sky was dazzling. What a great memory.

Thanks for letting me share with you. Happy Friday!
