Snippets: Iron & Wine

So many projects lately… I’m writing full time, taking photos full time. It’s a dream, but that means Field Trip, the blog, gets put on the back burner a bit. As I move my retail shop to online only, I hope to post one to two times a week here.

An Iron & Wine song comes on and I’m immediately transported. I’m out exploring backroads, it’s summertime, the windows are down, a breeze comes through the car.  We stop, pull over to look at a river, or stomp in a creek. We find another road to explore, so we do. And all is good. We get back home, with pockets full of rocks, leaves, maybe a small insect to add to our nature center. I want you to feel that when you read here. Feel transported, inspired to explore.

I will also be posting more about our time at home, because we aren’t always traveling. I want to share more about how we are teaching the world to our son, from our little dot of Water Valley, Mississippi. I thank you for following along and I hope you will keep coming back.

Stay: Hotel Covell / Los Angles, CA

When we travel, we love to stay in hotels…getting to the room and finding the cozy right away. We aren’t, however, big fans of eating out every meal when we travel, especially with a child. So, while Air bnb seems like the best alternative, so that we have a kitchen and what not, that’s not...

Supper Club: France

Welcome to this month’s Supper Club- a peek into the culture, food, and music of a different country each month. I, of course, love France. It’s magical, beautiful and just so charming. I’ve been to many parts of the country, but rarely try my hand at cooking French food because it feels so daunting and...
