    • I spent the weekend in the woods where I fell asleep and woke up to the sound of water just outside my tent. I turned my phone off and left it in my car and I was completely unplugged in nature. THEN I left the woods to go squeeze these cheeks and sing songs. all of this makes me pretty happy and grateful. #vscocam #thesundayseries #babiesofinstagram

    • "that’s the paradox: the only time most people feel alive is when they’re suffering, when something overwhelms their ordinary, careful armour, and the naked child is flung out onto the world. that’s why the things that are worst to undergo are best to remember. but when that child gets buried away under their adaptive and protective shells—he becomes one of the walking dead, a monster." #vscocam
    • my boy @jedidiahl came all the way from nashville to hang out with me in seattle. or he's touring and has a day off. whatever, I'll take either one. #vscocam

    • long day so it's solo park hangs, kids. right now I'm overwhelmingly thankful for the people in my life who do what they can to make it good and for what's been and for what's not yet been and for living a five minute walk from sunset park and its ridiculous mountain view. tomorrow is sunday and I'm feeling that a lot. #vscocam

    • I got out on the water with my Dad yesterday morning. It was the first time we fished together in over a year, maybe two years. I can't remember. Anyway, we didn't catch a single fish, only snags and a couple bites. We've never gone out and not caught fish, this was a first. It didn't matter to me though. The conversations, the stories, the silence, and time together made up for it. He took me to his secret spots and favorite spots (honey holes) on the lake, all with unique names: Cadillac Bay, there's a rumor a Cadillac crashed into the lake in the 50s, The Owls Nest, and Payday Point. The other two you can figure out how they got their names. 
When I was young, I didn't want to be like my dad. Naturally. That's just the way things go. Over the last few years, that position has changed. I aspire to be like him now. I think he might be the most emotionally stable, dependable, caring man I know. He never misses work, never complains, and has always provided for us. When I think of what a Midwestern working man looks like, I think of my Dad. More than anything, he knows who he is and has nothing to hide... but isn't aware of this quality which makes all the difference. I could go on, and on, but I'll end stop there for now. Here's to you Dad and here's to hoping I can be little bit more like you each day.

CURRENTLY

HEY EVERYONE, COME SEE HOW GOOD WE LOOK!
we’ve been so busy in the studio that i haven’t had a chance to update the blog in a minute, so that’s what i’m doing.
this is what we’re currently doing.

currently watching: nate and doug play ping pong. nate is holding a half eaten pear.
currently reading: texts from seniors and brides about getting us to shoot their stuff. also, some kurt vonnegut in our spare time. (see instagram.)
currently listening to: nate call doug an idiot for thinking his pear was an apple, and also to j. tillman, the everybodyfields, and big tree.
currently excited for: the weekend! i (amber) am getting hitched to this kid. (he’s been wanting to make an appearance on the blog – here you go, ralph.) maybe it’s just me who is excited for that, but i think the guys are too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

hope you all are having a perfect wednesday.
okthxbye.
