Etcetera #9

Hello, dears!

I’m back with another etcetera post today! If you’re new here, I use these posts to combine all the “orphan photos” and mini topics that aren’t quite big enough for their own post. It’s basically a virtual scrapbook of little moments from the past two months. 🙂

Enjoy this collection of summer adventures, memorable explorations, golden hour photos, etc.!

Vacation 2019 {Part 1}

Hello, dears!

Last week, my family and I went on vacation to North Carolina. We had a lovely time, both staying at our vacation house, and visiting my friend Aria and her family (but more on that next time 😉 ). Today I’m going to be posting about the first couple of days, including some photography from the beautiful space where we stayed and a bunch of pretty pictures I got when we went boating on the lake behind the house. Enjoy!

Cousins, Pools, and Ice Cream Spills

Hello, dears!

We recently took a trip to our old farm for several events, including attending a funeral, swimming, and going out to eat. I didn’t take pictures of the first, but I did of the other two. 😉 If you like swimming, ice cream, or summer adventures, you might enjoy this post! I’d love to hear about what summer adventures you go on after you finish!

And since that’s apparently all the intro this thing needs, let’s get straight into the post. 😉

In Which I Meet a Pen Pal

Hello, dears!

GUESS WHAT? I recently got to meet one of my pen pals and blogger friends, the amazing Charis Rae! She and her family visited our farm and spent the night in our guest house last week, and we all had SO much fun together, ahhh!

Charis is pen pals with Megan and I, and her sister is pen pals with my sister Carmen. It was super neat to see each other in real life for the first time! The rest of our siblings got along wonderfully too, and it was just all around a lovely time. 🙂

Enjoy some of my favorite photos from their visit!

Summer Aesthetic + Playlist

Hello, dears!

You guys seemed to really enjoy my last playlist post, so here’s another one! This time I chose 18 summery, fun, upbeat songs that are perfect for road trips, outings with friends, or just for putting yourself in a summery mood. 🙂 

Since these songs tend to be more focused on happy melodies than deep lyrics, I’m not going to share my favorite lines this time – you’ll just have to discover some yourselves! Instead, I’ll tell a little bit about the song, accompanied by a link to a YouTube music/lyric video and a summery “polaroid” picture that (sometimes) goes with the song. You can find all the songs on Spotify as well. (Check the end of this post for a link to my full summer playlist!) And just so you know, all these songs are clean and family-friendly. 🙂

Now then! Unwrap that ice cream sandwich, put on your sunglasses, and let’s get listening.

Whatever Floats Your Boat {Pond Swimming}

Hello, dears!

Remember the post from last year about swimming in our duckweed-covered pond? Well, it’s swimming season again and “our pool is open!” XD It’s a rather greenish pool, but hey, it’s water, right?

One Sunday evening a couple of weeks ago, we all went down to the dock and my siblings went swimming and canoeing. Sort of. I stayed on dry land and took photos instead, heh heh. I managed to capture quite a lot of amusing action shots and funny expressions, which I hope you enjoy as much as I do!

Ready? Set? Go!
