as i mentioned in this post i was in guerneville last weekend for a wedding. we all stayed at the riverlane resort where we spent our days lounging around the pool, barbecuing, and sipping cocktails. it was so nice getting out of the city. i need to remind myself to get out of the city more often. there are so many awesome places to go within a couple hours of san francisco that i have yet to explore. seriously i’ve been talking about going camping for months and i just never seem to get it together. maybe i’m more of a “camping” in a cabin kind of a girl. according to my friend david, we were camping (haha, we weren’t exactly roughing it). close enough for now, but a trip to big sur needs to happen in the near future. i really want to check out the henry miller memorial library, especially after reading big sur and the oranges of hieronymus bosch.
anyway since i taught summer school i didn’t really get a vacation, so relaxing at the river for a few days was perfect. AND i have another mini vacation coming up! this friday is my birthday and i’m flying to la to spend the day with my mom before heading to palm springs with friends. woo-hoo! i’m so ready.
wow this is the first outfit post that has gone up in a really long time. i’m gonna have to do something about that! i’ve decided i’m going to try to be less lazy about it. that will require me to wear something other than overalls (it’s gotten a bit out of hand), bust out my tripod, and/or annoy my friends by asking them to snap the photos (thanks for taking these rachel and amy). anyway, i found this dress while digging through the clearance section at target one summer afternoon. but given the fact that it’s generally cold in sf during the summer i couldn’t really wear it until recently. i decided it would be the perfect dress for ryan and eddie’s wedding (congrats, boys!). they had the coolest wedding at the russian river. a bunch of us stayed a few days and made a vacation out of it. we all really needed it. ah, i can’t wait to go back.
