    "Colorado and Wyoming are America’s highest states, averaging 6,800 feet and 6,700 feet above sea level. Utah comes in third at 6,100 feet, New Mexico, Nevada, and Idaho each break 5,000 feet, and the rest of the field is hardly worth mentioning. At 3,400 feet, Montana is only half as high as Colorado, and Alaska, despite having the highest peaks, is even further down the list at 1,900 feet. Colorado has more fourteeners than all the other U.S. states combined, and more than all of Canada too. Colorado’s lowest point (3,315 feet along the Kansas border) is higher than the highest point in twenty other states. Rivers begin here and flow away to all the points of the compass. Colorado receives no rivers from another state (unless you count the Green River’s brief in and out from Utah). Wyoming’s Wind River Range is the only mountain in North America that supplies water to all three master streams of the American West: Missouri, Colorado, and Columbia rivers." Keith Meldahl Happy one week anniversary, you cuties.

regina’s mighty shores

Do you remember a few weeks ago when I mentioned that my husband and I took a spontaneous road trip? It was honestly such a short but an incredibly productive mini-vacation. We seem to be good at those! After working 8 hours on a Saturday, Geoffrey picked me up from work and along with Truman we headed 2.5 hours away to stay the night in Regina, SK. We originally went to purchase tires for one of our vehicles, but ended up not getting them. Instead, on Sunday I was able to go to an amazing clothing store called Cade Style Lounge that I have been following on Instagram for months, visited Chapters book store, ate a lot of disgusting fast food, and went antique shopping. Cade doubles as a new and vintage clothing shop with the best brand names. WILDFOX, Cheap Monday, Rails, Free People, Jeffrey Campbell, Elizabeth & James, and more! I discovered Cade after their vintage supplier The Dress Form began following me on Instagram. I just find it so amazing what discoveries you are able to find on social media! I always read about people forming friendships through Instagram and meeting up in person, but I’ve never done it myself. Going to Cade and talking with the employees is the closest that I’ve come to doing so. Have any of you made any real life connections through social media?

During that trip, I had also spent a good hour in Chapters rifling through interior decorating books. I went in there thinking that I would be coming away with hundreds of dollars of new material, but it seemed like I would only like a few pictures out of the few hundred that were in these books. I was shocked! I started panicking only because I am in need of finding inspiration for our new home. Then I thought, ‘hold on, maybe it’s a good thing that my style is not in any one book. That way, what I do create, will be completely independent and original.’ Who knows, maybe one day I’ll be able to create a book on The Little Barn’s interior. ;-)))

    Emma you purchased some great clothing finds. I love the deconstructed black sweater…..Cheap Monday? I cover it. Totally off the subject, I am watching the dragonflies right now in the tall grass. Doing what they do best…getting rid of those mosquitoes. Translucent. Little helicopters. Just going about their business quietly. Kind of like you. Blog them baby! I love them. All are individual.
