Road Less Travelled



(road somewhere on the west coast, my m by mjs, trusty Gryson for Target bag, and disposable camera)
My mom and I are currently on our annual road trip that we take every summer. Its usually filled with wrong exits, lots of rest stops, and just plain good times. Basically nothing can thwart us!

Im also carrying around disposable cameras because I think Ive gone sooo digital lately that I want something basic and rudimentary. Plus, you never know what pictures youve taken until youve gotten them developed, which brings on an alluring 'mystery' factor.

Dont worry, hopefully another update (outfit post) tonight.

i love those shoes so much. i like how there are laces and buckles. bag looks cute, but i can't really tell because of the picture. the sky looks really cool. and i love the picture because of all of the things that are going on, especially the twisty road.

have an amazing trip! road adventures are always the best. and you're so right, i feel like i've gotten so used to the perfection of digital that i NEED the flaws of film...i've been using a lot more polaroid lately :-)

Disposable cameras are such a good idea! I's forgotten about how nice it is to be able to actually have printed photos and not just pictures saved on your computer.

i think its adorable how you and your mom go on an annual road trip... I'm not that close to my mom at all :P

i also like disposable camera's, i feel like its a great way to keep memories close with their pics instead of saving them all on your computer

This sounds like so much fun! And you and your mom sound super close. I wish my mom and I were close enough where I'd want to take annual road trips with her.

I was thinking of going back to disposables as well! I bought a rinky dink camera over the weekend at a garage sale that I think I'll be using soon...

Hope you're having fun!

The picture on the top is absolutely amazing. I could stare at it all day. The shades of blue, the stormy sky, the open road, and green hills...and being in a car, safe, watching it all but knowing you can get out at any time. Have an excellent time. Sounds like it's always fabulous!

Heck yes! No road trip is complete without a disposable camera. ;)
