Prairie Camping

My best friend Heather is getting married! To celebrate, we went camping at Nachusa Grasslands in rural Illinois... it was SO much fun. 

Our camping night included: campfire stories, almonds, chocolate, pita chips, cookies, a night hike and lots of stargazing :) 

Did you hear? I'm moving to Portland, Oregon! I've officially fled the state of North Carolina for a change of scenery. I've loved every minute of Asheville, but the gypsy in me is saying, "time to move!" I'm excited to be closer to the ocean... collecting treasures on the beach and getting new inspiration. 

For now, I'm in Northern Illinois until Heather gets married -- I'm her maid of honor! Shortly after that, I'll round up Luke and Basil and high tail it out to the Pacific Northwest. Adventure awaits!
