Hiking the Dogs

I didn't intend for this post to become a series, but as it turns out, I can't put the camera down when I'm out hiking with Odin (and I am out hiking with Odin about 4 days a week, lately). The things I've seen are just too beautiful and too good for my soul to forget. So here are some shots (some of my favorites that I've taken) from recent hikes in Marin County, as I attempt to socialize and train my all-too-smart-9-month-old herding puppy.

And please meet Odin's new girlfriend. Her name is Cleo and she is not at all bothered by his play growls or face nips, thankfully. She's a confident little cavalier and the two of them seem to really like each other. 

I like these things...

Just a few images and words that have caught my eye lately:

  1. Hoping this month brings about a change of momentum, attitude, luck, and schedule. I'll be honest, it hasn't started off well, but I still have hope!
  2. All I want to do is pack up our dog, tent, stanley thermoses, some yummy food, a book or two and just take off to go camping with my husband. 
  3. Dreamy landscape. My ideal landscape. 
  4. Want this shirt so badly. 
  5. UGH. yes. this is so true. And it would make life so much easier to just accept those imperfections and embrace them, rather than trying to change them. Do you hear that pimples and cellulite? I embrace you all. 
  6. Babies. Babies. Babies.
