wanderlust






greetings from the last road trip of the summer! we left monday morning for the ozarks, a gorgeous area of the country that is too often underrated and overlooked, and then wandered down to texas, where i got suckered into a parking lot carnival and many other things i'd never do on my own turf. went to the diego rivera cubist exhibition at the meadows museum in dallas yesterday and picked up this fabulous book of his illustrations. see l'atelier for more stories of wanderlust! in the meantime, i'll be trucking home on country roads...

What a wonderful eye for beauty and color you have. I agree with your assertion that the typical and mundane (such as parking lot carnivals!) take on a whole new light whilest one is on vacation and can end up being magical and fun.
Great fun photos. Never been to the Ozarks (one of the only mountain ranges in the US I've not visited or camped) I just may have to indulge.

Truck back safely, dear aimee! I love your wandering wanderlust pictures, expecially the merry-go-round one. I can't remember when last I was on a merry-go-round. Maybe I should pack my rucksack and go find one ...

Hi Aimee,

I wanted to let you know that I just found your blog (via Etsy) the other day and I have been enjoying reading through it and think you have a wonderful take on life. I have written about you in my new blog if you would like to check it out. Also, do you have any helpful tips for me on how to recognize/appreciate other people's work on my blog?

Thanks!
