August Outtakes


Hi.
It's been a while, and since we don't like lame excuses, we're not going to give you one. The thing is we've been so in love that we didn't really think too much about blogging or really documenting our adventures as of late--in love with the world around us that is (and I guess each other). Every palm tree, every sunset, and all the little things in between have gotten us stopping in our tracks to pause and enjoy life. Ever since my move to LA, we've been creating a little love nest to romp around in--adding new favorites to our list of frequent haunts. With a bit of adjustment, it finally feels like we've started to acclimate to being a few miles apart instead of 50, and have just been enjoying this new phase in our relationship. There have been some hiccups along the way, so much so that we started calling this season "Bummer Summer," but like all bloggers, we're really looking forward to a fresh start with Fall beginning soon. For us, the start of Fall always feels more like a new year than January ever does. In LA though, we'll have to wait to enjoy pumpkin-spiced anythings until after Halloween.




We can't promise that we won't disappear again (at least not until this awful heat wave cools off), but we do promise that we will continue to enjoy the little things in life like 80-degree evenings, ice cream bars, pretty blooms, central air conditioning, and thrifted goods.

  1. Wow, these photographs are stunning. I apologise if I have asked already but what camera do you use/editing program? If anything, taking a break to enjoy love and life is the only good excuse to take a break from the blogging world. I have done so myself. Hope life continues to be sunny and filled with love. x

    1. Hi Louise,
      We use Fuji X-Pro 1 cameras and we just use photoshop and/or lightroom to edit our photos. Thanks for your support!

  22. Lovely photographs (as always!). I especially love the palm trees. This makes me want to hop on a plane to Cali, but the weather in NYC is finally starting to calm down (hello sweater weather!) and I can't wait to see what fall brings!

  33. Everyone needs a break every now and then! Often times I find myself getting wrapped up in how "Instagrammable" an experience is. I definitely need to take some time to just appreciate life as well. Lovely photos, by the way!

  35. I think it's a great thing that you two took a break from the blogosphere and made time to just enjoy life and spend time with each other. Blogging is very fun just as long as it doesn't start dictating how you spend your time. It seems like you two have been up to a lot during your break. I love all these photos and they make me wish I were back home in California.

  58. Lately I've loved putting away the camera too. As much as we love taking photos sometimes it's hard work documenting things lol. I finally made it down to SoCal twice in the past month or so and it is as lovely as it looks in your photos!

  59. I love that you guys have been loving life and appreciating what surrounds you. We get so caught up in life that we forget to look out the window and watch a cloud pass by. I know I've been far too guilty of that lately. Keep enjoying LA and it's fabulous sunsets and palm trees. <3
