Friday Favorites

I would much rather be on the road right now instead of browsing the Internet !  But since I'm browsing I thought I would look for some little things to make our time in Ruby a little sweeter ♥

Everyone likes to personalize their own space and I'm no different.  When we first dressed Ruby up it was with a beachy, aqua colored theme.  But my cute little flip flop design quilt needed washing way too often-and that got old very quickly.  So now we are going for a grey and red color scheme. Once I finish with my little personal touches I'll share the finished product with you.  Until then, these are a few of my favorite things that I have discovered while looking for ideas for  Ruby !  Enjoy.

Love these hooks from West Elm-sweet outdoor theme 

Gorgeous glaze on these rice bowls from Blue Sky Pottery Company. I confess, I bought a set and love them,eating stir fry has never been more luxurious !

This would look great hanging somewhere in Ruby ! Beautiful work by maechevrette ,find it at her Etsy shop

How sweet this would be for your picnic table ? They have matching napkins too at Anthropologie

And I'm lusting after this blanket for those cold winter camping nights !  From one of my favorite catalogs: Sundance

Or this one from West Elm:

And last but not least,these beautiful earrings made by my friend Monica from Just 5 More Minutes. She's so talented and has now opened her Etsy Shop

To my fellow campers and Trekkers, what are you doing to personalize your little space ?  Share your ideas.  And to those of you out on the road...Happy Trails and Safe Travels.

It's Been Quite a Ride

Ruby's last night in Washington

I don't know where the time goes.  I remember when I was 12 years old,sitting on the hammock with our next door neighbor,desperately wishing to be 21.  At 12years old, 21 seemed a whole lifetime away.  And now in the blink of an eye 3 years has passed so quickly.  It was 3 years ago that we started our journey with Ruby.  A lifestyle change we have embraced with our heart and soul and one we wouldn't change for anything (well only to have our family with us ! ).

When I signed into my Roadtrek Facebook group this morning, Mike Wendland (our fearless leader)  had posted a montage of his travels in 2014-take a look at it, it's beautiful.  But it reminded me that I had forgotten to post our 2013 adventures and here we are almost at the end of 2014.  It's always so much fun and so heartwarming to look back on our time together.  And I love sharing so here  is 2013.

If you missed the original video of our first year-2012, here it is:
