Creative Crush: Road tripping with Courtney Khail Stationery
Each Friday, a special blogger friend shares their current Creative Crush – whatever is cause for inspiration at this very moment. This week, I’m happy to have Courtney from Courtney Khail Stationery. She is a seriously watercolor gifted artist. I’m selfishly hoarding two of her hand painted cards. And after you read about her crush (which has me seriously itching for a road trip) you simply must check out her latest food-related project. It’s gorgeous.
Also, she was hands-down best dressed at the Alt White party – wearing her grandmother’s vintage Halston-esque gown and belt. Great taste and style clearly run through her genes.
We live in such a beautiful country, filled with amazing views, food, andpeople, and there is something so special about experiencing it on the road.You have the opportunity to stumble across wonders you’d never see if you weresimply flying in and out. (For instance, we found a city with a population of15 right before the US/Canadian border with the very best huckleberry bearclaws!)
Whenever I’m overwhelmed with everyday life (blog posts to write, laundry towash, invitations to paint) and need a dose of clarity and inspiration, all Ihave to do is look through those photos. Before I know it my heart is floodedwith memories- star gazing with Jordan in the middle of Yosemite National Park,breathing in the fresh air overlooking the Grand Tetons, swimming together incrystal clear glacial lakes- and I come back completely refreshed andrevitalized.
I know not everyone can take six weeks to go explore, but even if only for aweekend I can’t encourage you enough to unplug, hit the road, and trulyexperience the world around you. It’s amazing how much it does for the soul.
