Honey I'm Home

Tahoe Sunrise

Hello hello! I finally have internet in my house so I'm back to blogging!
I've been working like woah so I haven't had much time to do anything. Last month was eventful, filled with serendipity and spectacular things. I moved house to live with some good friends and wonderful people. There are eight of us and while I think we were all worried that it might turn into an "animal house" sort of situation, it has been amazing! Most of us are super into music, and four of the guys that live here are in a band, Terraplane, so we all go out and support them at their various gigs around town and in Reno. We've also been cooking up a storm and are going to buy lots of veggies to plant in our garden. My favorite part about the house is the porch swing we have made out of an old ski chair lift. It's the perfect place to spend the mornings with some super fresh juice, now that I have resurrected my juicer...it requires a lot of counter space! We spend most of our evenings chillin in our hot tub or watching ridiculous sci fi movies from the 80s. I'm sharing a room with my good friend Rachel and we've been having an awesome time trawling the local thrift stores for decorations. We call the room our egg because of the way the rafters are it is almost dome shaped! It is super cozy.

I've been working three jobs, at a boat company on the west shore, as an "umbrella girl" at one of the rafting companies, and renting paddle boards at my yoga studio, which teaches stand up paddle yoga. Life is sooo good, even if it is busy! While I dislike most things about having to wake up at 4am for work, watching the sun rise over the Lake is one of the best parts of my day. I took these photos at the dock I work at, isn't it gorgeous?
Tell me what wonderful things are happening in your summer!

Goodness you busy busy girl! Three jobs? That's fantastic for you! Your life sounds like dream. Seriously. Your porch swing made out of an old ski lift is such a brilliant idea and a nice way to bring a part of work home :) This view is glorious and certainly makes waking up at 4am so much easier!

I would totally love to see your porch swing! Some friends used to have a set of airplane seats in their living room and I am imagining your swing must be equally awesome :D

Your new place sounds great (and what amazing photos of the lake!) - sharing a home can be such fun when you have likeminded housemates :)

Things have been sedate since I got back from Glastonbury music festival (which was such a blast!)
