Inspiration: The Great Outdoors

Inspiration August 2012 The Great Outdoors

I’m torn on camping. One the one hand I get to be one with nature and see amazing things like kajillion-year old redwood trees. But on the other hand, it’s just not very comfortable. Or clean. Or convenient.

If I get talked into camping, I almost always enjoy it, save that one time I slept amongst albino scorpions and the other time I got caught in a torrential thunderstorm. But it’s hard to get motivated. So this summer I’ve brought the camping elements I love — marshmallows, field journals, and arrowheads, a bit closer to home and thrown in a bit of stylish, hence the items in this month’s Inspiration.
