Caught My Eye: Celebrating Dogs

“If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home and examine your conscience.” Woodrow Wilson.

Dogs never fail to make me happy. They want to run, play, snuggle, bask in the sun, watch the world and go where you go. They have soft fur, floppy ears and an abundance of curiosity. Mine loves hiking as much as I do, whether we’re in the woods or on the beach. She loves dogs that are bigger than her (and not so much tiny ones.) If her friends are around, she’ll play hard and then jump into the car with them (then sulk when I pick her up later.) She’s full of love and sass and is the best dog ever. I couldn’t be more grateful. What do you love about your dog? xo, Ev.

Caught My Eye, Traveling.

This is the road trip edition!

You really and truly can’t go wrong with a beach trip. There’s nothing like the sun, swimming in the salty water, playing in the waves… (Other favorite places include woods and the jungle!) This was taken at Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester, MA. (Sensing a favorite spot in the world from all of my posts?)

Niagra Falls… Next time we go we’ll have our kid in tow and we’re going to the Canadian side.

biltmoreProvidence, RI is such a cute city and it goes without saying that it has some cool coffee shops and great places to eat. We stayed at the Biltmore Hotel where it is rumored to have hosted satanic parties, decades ago. It’s dog friendly so of course we brought our dog, Sprocket, with us and needless to say, she was pretty spooked. We had to drop her off at a friend’s house 40 minutes away for the rest of the weekend! I highly recommend staying there just for the freaky factor. Nothing overly strange happened; there wasn’t a ghost sighting but we definitely felt the presence of something, and this was before we found out that the Biltmore is supposedly haunted (whoops.)

Beach Romps!

One of the things I miss about living in Gloucester is being able to walk on the beaches any time I’d like, with my longest drive being 20 minutes (and my shortest walk being 5 minutes.) The other being my friends, I decided to go visit and meet up with a couple of which who happen to have awesome dogs and go take my pup for a walk on the beach. There is something inherently magical about the coastline and this is especially true, for me, in the winter time. Enjoy the photos and post yours (with dogs or without!) to instagram, using the hashtag #knowloveknowcolor for a chance to be reposted on my feed! xo, Ev.
