Friday Phone Dump

“Flowers of the field
Here today, vanish in the wind
Go to sleep, you may not wake up with a morning sunrise
Move so fast, baby, right before you close your eyes

So you better run
Move fast like a bullet from the gun
Over the hills, salvation rests in the sun
You’re turnin’ it, baby, rest in the sun
So won’t you come
So won’t you come, baby”

1-4) Hahaha, this is a series I like to call “sleepy pups” in which I photograph Bozeman sleeping in different places around our apartment.  So far he seems to be adjusting well to his new home, he just doesn’t understand the concept of other people (and pets) being allowed to live in the same building as him.  He barks at everyone…sooo we’re working on that.

5) My favorite spot on our walls so far!  We’ve not hung too many things up yet since we still need to buy some furniture items (and it’s hard to know how tall or short they will be), but of what we do have already, this is my favorite.

6) Geeze.  I’m sure there will be a day when palm trees cease to impress me, but right now they just feel so exotic and vacation-y to me.  That probably just comes with the territory of an Okie living in California though, huh?

7-8) Yeah, our pool is ok I guess :)  Y’all come see us when you’re in Cali!

This weekend we’ll be exploring more of our new city!  It’s been a busy week getting things done (and with Colin starting work at his new job), so we’re looking forward to relaxing and exploring.  I hope your weekend brings new ideas and maybe a chance for a nap?  :)

Friday Phone Dump (Monday Edition)

“Theres a place I know
Where the redwoods blow
Where the Colorado River feeds the sea

If you care to share it with me
There are wide blue skies
In your cloudless eyes
And I think that California is what they see
Will you come to California with me”

I said yes // California

1-4) My sweet friend (and Blake’s younger sister), Whitney, got married last weekend!  I got to do her hair for the wedding, and it was so special because I’ve done her hair for pretty much every big event in her life since high school.  When Whit was a freshman and I was a senior in high school, we were in band together.  I drove her home from school every single day for the whole school year, and I taught her how to have a dance party in the car!  She was shy at first, but by the end of the year she was breakin’ it down at every stoplight right along with me :)  I like to think I taught her all the dance moves she knows haha  So happy for you, Whitney!

5) Coffee date with these lovelies–I’m so thankful that I got to see them before we left!  If I didn’t get to say goodbye to you, I’m so sorry!  The amount of time between Colin accepting his new job and us leaving was very small, and I’m sad that I couldn’t see everyone before we moved.  Hopefully I will see you all soon!  This is me send you a virtual hug :)  If you’re confused about what I mean by “moved,” maybe you missed last week’s phone dump?

6) Blake and Brian have the best house–random thought haha

7) We drove this moving truck halfway across America!  Bozeman loved and hated it at the same time, what a trooper.

8) My heart is still full after getting to have lunch with Tabitha in Amarillo!  We love and miss you, Tabiwan!

9-14) New Mexico (my very favorite state) is so beautiful I could cry.  Every single time I go there, I wonder if it will enchant me as much as it did before.  Every single time, it does.

15-20) We stopped at my favorite restaurant in the whole world, Maria’s New Mexican Kitchen, for dinner on our first night.  I’m still on a high from the red and green chiles–and also the Mexican hot chocolate I grabbed from the Teahouse on our way out of town :)  We were so sad that we got into town after Iconik Coffee Roasters and Santa Maria Provisions had closed, but I guess that means we’ll have to head back to Santa Fe soon!

21-23) See what I mean?  How beautiful is New Mexico?  And these are just views from gas stations and drive-by phone photos…I can’t handle it.

24-25)  Speaking of gas stations–here we are in Arizona, a state I also love :)

33-39)  Some details from the end of our drive, our walks around San Jose, and our awesome apartment.  It’s so so beautiful, and I haven’t even begun to process the fact that we are actually here.  In California.  To stay.  Give me a year or so, and maybe I’ll have it figured out haha  For now though, I just feel so blessed to have so many places and people in our lives that help us grow and love and experience beauty.  I feel blessed to have a space of our own and new opportunities and each other.  I’m grateful– so so grateful.

We’re still getting settled in here in our new apartment (and new city), so this week will be about getting work done, unpacking, and crossing the many items off our to-do list.  I hope your Monday feels fresh and inspiring!  And thanks for letting me post this Friday Phone Dump on a Monday :)

1) So, big news this week…WE’RE MOVING TO CALIFORNIA!  Colin accepted a job in San Jose, CA last week, and we will spend this weekend packing up a moving truck so we can head out on Tuesday.  So. Crazy.  We haven’t had a place of our own since January (which has been the loveliest), so we couldn’t be more excited to have a home again!  If you happen to know anyone in San Jose that I should meet or who needs photos taken–hit me up at hello[at]maryophoto[dot]com.  I can’t wait to bring you photos of palm trees and mountains and the ocean–what a dream come true!

2-5) Bozeman + Riley = BFFL  They’re the cutest pair of best friends I’ve ever seen :)

6-8) Colin and I spent some time wandering around OKC last weekend.  It was lovely–this city is so sweet!

9-11) We’ve been in Tulsa all week celebrating birthdays, the 4th of July, and my Uncle’s wedding!  I took zero photos on the actual 4th, and it was really nice.  Those crepe myrtle flowers are actually from Beth’s front yard, but I thought they looked pretty next to the pool sooo that’s where I put them…

07072017 phone dump5

12) We got to see the Chelsea, Sean, and baby Townes last night, so naturally Beth and I took a selfie with our best’s baby :)  What a cutie!

13) Emergency ice cream stop!

 This weekend we’re loading up our boxes so we can drive out on Tuesday!  I hope your weekend is inspiring :)

“what if all the constellations were railway stations

i’d buy us a ticket to the northern star

once we got up there, we’d look down at the people

looking up with their telescopes to where we are

we’d say oh oh, what a beautiful world we live in

what a beautiful world we’ve been given

what a beautiful beautiful world”

1) It was sweet to see a few of my lovely friends from the Changed Retreat team last weekend!  I miss you all, but it was great to see you, Amy and Tina!

2) Get ready for all the dog pictures–these two are the best of friends and the worst of enemies at the same time!

3-7) We’re staying at Beth and Ostin’s house at the moment.  It’s been great for lots of reasons, but one of the best is getting to hang out with both Bozeman and Riley all the time haha  They are crazy pups, but we love them!  We love Beth and Ostin too, of course :)

06302017 phone dump4

8) Just some pretty moments with coffee

9) The Wedge (our favorite pizza place) has BOGO pizza on Mondays with a KeepItLocal card, so we went and had a lovely dinner on their back patio.  What a gorgeous Summer night.

This weekend we’re spending time with friends before heading to Tulsa for the 4th.  I hope your weekend is awesome and that you get to spend it with people you love!

Friday Phone Dump

“We stood
Steady as the stars in the woods
So happy-hearted
And the warmth rang true inside these bones
As the old pine fell we sang
Just to bless the morning”

1-2) All the Bozeman snuggles since we have him back–we just love that little guy :)

3-4) Commonplace Books is the newest (and best) bookstore in OKC, and we finally got to stop by and peruse.  It’s the kind of place you could spend hours (and lots of money) reading or chatting or just enjoying the vibes.  We’ll definitely be back!

5) We’ve been flying a lot this week for Colin’s job interviews–this is from our connection in Salt Lake City.  So beautiful!

6) The only photo I took in California while we were there :)  It’s imperfect, but I love it.

Sorry for the delay in posting this weekend (again).  Colin’s sweet Grandma passed away this week, so we’ve been with his family this weekend.  The photo below is from our wedding (taken by Josh McCullock).  When we were taking family photos, Grandma decided she wanted to stand in between us instead of next to us which made us laugh real hard.  We miss you, Grandma.


I hope your weekend has been restful and lovely!
