Lately is a weekly post where I share my week with you in photos. I love taking pictures and sharing them with you here on my blog and on Instagram.

My love has been doing tons of cooking using delicious veggies and herbs from our garden. We wanted bread the other day but were too lazy to go to the store, so he decided to make focaccia bread instead. IT WAS AMAZING! 

Last week I was on my way to work and decided to stop in Happy Belly in OTR. I had their breakfast sandwich with avocado, cheese, and egg. And their shop is super cute. 

Streetpops is a shop near our house and I walk by it weekly. I finally had the chance to stop in and I'll definitely be back! 

We had a dinner date in the park last week and watched Cincinnati Shakespeare Company perform Macbeth. The weather was perfect and we packed a picnic too. It was a pretty awesome evening, and it was free. WIN WIN!

Since summer is almost over I've been trying to enjoy time with my love as much as possible. Back to school means the fun is over :( 

We spent a lot of our mornings in our enjoying our awesome neighborhood and having breakfast in Washington Park

I had a show recently in Columbus, and even though it stormed most the day, the location was super sweet!

While on vacation I was set on closing down my shop, but at the last minute changed my mind. Thank God I didn't because I got another account! Here I come Connecticut! 

Later this week I'll be updating you on our garden. Our tomatoes are Out Of Control, and my love made fried green tomatoes from it. #delish

Isn't that wine packaging awesome!

We have a winner from our giveaway last week! Congratulations Melissa! 

What have you been up to lately?

We were on much needed vacation in The Outer Banks and enjoyed every single minute! We rented bikes for the week and spent the first couple days riding around the town. I loved it because there were very few hills, so I was able to keep up without needing a break. But it was so humid that after each morning ride we were totally soaked! But we had the ocean to cool us off :)

We spent most of our time on the beach where I was able to read one of the three books I brought with me. I also listened to all of my favorite podcasts a lot of the time. 

My love is quite the sand castle/turtle builder, so much so that people would stop and take pictures of his creation. I'm such a proud wife, lol!

I also tried to each as much fresh fruit as I possibly could. I eat a lot now, but fruit in Ohio just ain't like the ones on the coast....just sayin'. 

The daily sunrise and sunset off the back of our deck. What else is there to say?

Have to visited the Outer Banks? This was my first time, and I'll definitely be back.

I've been fulfilling store orders and luckily one of the stores where ap loves design is sold is literally a 10 minute walk from my house! 

I can't believe we're in five stores now, including two Simply Vague locations. I visited The Greene location in Beavercreek, OH to see how the stock was set up and to check out the scenery. It was pretty awesome watching people purchase my prints while I was in the store. 

We celebrated the 4th with a little "urban camping." Now I haven't camped since girl scouts some twenty years ago so I wasn't too excited, but ended up loving the whole experience! Granted it was in a friends backyard and there was indoor plumbing, but I did sleep in a tent that my love graciously set up for us.

Most of our friends have kids, and after the fireworks it was time to make smores on the fire. My love surprised me by purchasing dark chocolate (love), but by that time I had too much to eat and waaay too much to drink so I didn't try them, but they looked and smelled yummy.

I slept pretty good in the tent. No bugs, the air mattress was still up. But my hair was a mess and I forgot my toothbrush. Eww.. And I couldn't believe how cold it got that night. The day was perfect, but I think the temperature got down to the low 50's. At one point I could see my breath in the air.

Our view from the front of our tent was sweet. Even though we were still on friends property it felt like we were really in the woods!

We brought Layla with us so she could play with her doggy friends. Sometimes she forgets that she's the senior of the group. Clearly at this point she was exhausted and was ready for bed. 

How did you celebrate the 4th?
