For over two years straight I did a photo an hour post once a month. In 2014 I only did it once before falling out of the habit. I've been meaning to shoot another one for a while now. The Saturday before last I went out to my parents to spend the weekend with them for my dad's birthday, while I was out there I took a photo an hour.

8am // My little toasted marshmallow.
9am // Packing up some clothes to take to my parents for the weekend.
10am //  My new favorite new snack. I actually just tried nutella for the first time this month which is kind of strange. Jeff even said something along the lines of "I have no idea how you spend so much time on the internet and haven't tried nutella!" I'll never be able to eat apples without it again!
11am // Klaus in the car, ready to head to grandma and grandpa's house for the weekend.
12pm // My parent's kitty, Baby Kitty. Not quite sure how he managed to squeeze himself between those two photos and not knock them down.
1pm // The two best buds there ever were.
2pm //  "We should wrestle as close to people as possible"
3pm // My mom's flowers. If there is one thing I miss living in my apartment, it's gardening.
4pm // No trip to my parents is complete without a ride in the dump track. I actually had to google it to see what these are really called since when I looked up "dump track" it kept correcting that to "dump truck". Apparently "dumpers" is what these things are actually referred to as buuut I just can't, sounds too weird. It dumps, and it's on tracks so, dump track it is.
5pm // Finally catching a break from Klaus, the pup with never ending energy.
6pm // Took the time to wash clean my car out and wash it down. My dad even fixed my air conditioning for me! Hooray!
7pm // Weenies over the fire for dinner.
We ended the evening with a cheesy horror movie and some ice cream. It was really nice to spend times with my parents. I see them a few times a month but usually only for a few hours since it's kind of a long drive there and I don't necessarily love driving home late. I'm thinking sleep overs should happen a little bit more often.

Hopefully it won't be another long stretch of time before my next photo an hour post either. I miss having them back to look on. Some of those from last year really seem like they were another lifetime ago.

August was a pretty swell month! Hard to believe it's over already. It always seems like later in the year the months go so much faster.

A few of my favorite posts from August...

new (to me) movies + tv shows I watched this month:
Paris is Burning. Why had I never seen this before? Does anyone have any suggestions for similar things?!
BoJack Horseman.
The Killing - Season 4. Honestly, I thought the ending was dumb, but I really miss that show already.
Frisky Business. I finished this show in no time at all. I'm bummed there weren't more episodes!

songs on repeat:
 • You're Gonna Go Far, Kid - The Offspring
 • Island in the Sun - Weezer
 • Breezeblocks - alt-J
 • Riptide - Vance Joy
PS. If you want to see what else I'm listening to, you can find me on last fm here!  

exciting happenings online and off: 
I celebrated six months in Cleveland. I could go on forever about how happy I am to have moved here. Seriously, I just love this city so much.
I biked three times more miles in August than in July! Feels so good.
• I had the best birthday ever! Jeff and I shot the building we went to on our first date, biked with my best buds, got pizza from my favorite pizza place, and ate my favorite local ice cream,
Here's to making September the best month yet! I'm certainly looking forward to the weather cooling down.

226 : 365 One of the things Jeff got me for my birthday was a globe of the moon, it's basically the coolest.
227 : 365 Spent a good chunk of the evening writing post cards.
 PS. If you want to send post cards back and forth, you can find my address here.

229 : 365 Buildings covered in ivy are just the prettiest! 
230 : 365 I love that the windows in my apartment are perfect puppy peeking height.

This birds and blooms pillow of the US is adorable.

Love this cactus brooch

I love this little desktop storage container shaped like a house. I have something similar that I use except it's just round, a house would be so much cuter.

If there ever was a set of ice tongs made for me, it was these!

You guys! Kate Funk is coming out with a book!!

Explorer's Press once again killing it with this keychain!
 I love the idea of a scratch off map of the USA. I crossed a bunch of states off this year mentally, and I know there are websites you can mark off states you've been to but a scratch off map is way cooler. I could only like this more if it were a different color scheme.

One of my favorite things about fall and winter is getting to buy a new coat. Not that I ever really need a new one, but I just love coats

 I have a slight obsession with award ribbons, this one is no exception! I'd be tickled pink to receive it.

Hope you have a great Friday!
