summer fun

today, we have some fun summer date ideas and fun activities for a girls night out. have fun!

with nature:

1. this all depends on where you live but how about… cliff jumping? paddle boarding? lake swims? beach volleyball?

2. if you are willing to invest some money, some really fun outdoors activities are these eno hammocks, gibbon slacklines, or these super fun lily pads for a lake day.

fun and exercise:

1. sunrise yoga. [or maybe it just turns into watching the sun rise, either way its a great way to start the day!]

2. run/rollerblade/bike to the date! go for a run and finish with ice cream or coffee.

after sunset:

1. drive in movie! or if there isn’t a location near you, make a variation of one with an outside fort and laptop and/or projector.

2. bonfire! s’mores anyone? with a big group or just one person, you pick.

bonfire date tested and approved by laura herself!

cali part two

this past weekend, over easter, jane made another trip to cali because she just couldn’t stay away after her trip to san fran. (what’s not to love about the golden state?!) this time though, she stayed on the santa monica beach and made day trips to and throughout the city. she enjoyed relaxing on the beach, walks to the pier, shopping, and even a warner brothers studio tour where she got to see the set of the ellen show, friends, and the fosters! here are her adventures and vacation in pictures all edited and posted on the vsco.co app.

we are back in california again! this time, jane spent a weekend in san francisco and absolutely loved it. she enjoyed biking along the beach, picture ops at the golden gate bridge, the gorgeous houses, the one and only lombard street, and even made a day trip to sausalito. here are some of her many photos from the weekend.

spring break– photography

we had an awesome spring break in naples, florida. although we don’t have too much to share other than we spent more time on the beach than we should have, we do have some cool pictures! so here’s our break…in pictures.
