anastasiamika Tips needed! // There's a road trip in the future. We'll be traveling down from Portland to San Francisco and making lots of pit stops along the way. We need your help! What places do we absolutely have to stop at? Food. Sights. Coffee. You name it. 1d
  •   mrandreygorban Are you guys going along the coast? 1d
  •   anastasiamika @mrandreygorban part of the time. Not sure which coastline we'll pick yet. 1d
  •   ziggy1903 If you are going the coast plan an extra day for each section: Astoria to California-two days for the coast to SF 1d
  •   ziggy1903 Stop in Arcata CA, Napa Santa Rosa area- avoid the I-5 corridor from Redding to Sacramento- yes, a few nice places but you will enjoy more going east or west of it 1d
  •   trixiekao golden gate bakery in SF!! they have the best egg tarts I've ever had 1d
  •   mrandreygorban Take the 101 and stop in the little towns along the way in Oregon. Brandon is our favorite coastal city in Oregon. We also really like Florence. Make sure to spend time in the Redwoods. There's a little town near Eureka, CA calked Ferndale. They have a great little "downtown" with a coffee shop, restaurants, book stores, etc. 1d
  •   mrandreygorban I meant Bandon, not Brandon :) 1d
  •   helen_yano If you will be passing Sebastopol in Cali, definitely stop by. It's a cute little town. Amazing farm to fork food there. Also, #umamiburger in San Francisco is amazing. (there's a cute little card shop along the same street a short walk from there. Don't remember the name but Google maps will probably show it) Stop by any of the redwood parks (jedidiah smith, grizzly creek redwoods, sinkyone wilderness). The glass beach in Fort Bragg. Fort Ross. Bodega Bay (awesome horse back riding). Oh goodness I can go on for days! 1d

anastasiamika Someone loves being mom's assistant. Today's tasks include snooping and pulling all the drawers out, delighting in all the odds and ends inside; shouting at the neighbor as he mows his lawn; doodling on the work table with a crayon; barking at the dogs next door; and making sure the space stays "orderly" so dad knows we got work done. #henrymika #anastasiamariestudio 3d

anastasiamika Signs of fall just down the street. As much as I love summer, I am looking forward to my favorite season and all that it brings. How about you guys? 3d

anastasiamika My little frog. Yesterday was one of those days where I was tested for patience and love non-stop. Henry decided it was let's-cry-until-mom-goes-mad day and to tell the truth, I did eventually go a wee crazy. I never seemed to understand what he wanted. Never picked out the right snacks. Never understood his "words." Never played the right game. Never picked out the right play clothes. And so forth. And then he fell asleep for a 2.5hr nap. This frog of mine sure exhausts me but I've never been more happy. Just look at him. How can you not love this kid? #henrymika 6d

anastasiamika This week's #followfriday are four folks who make me want to pack my bags and go adventuring. There's so much beauty in this world that shouldn't be passed over. It was a toughie to just chose four, but here they are: @adrianasinke @helloemilie @ravivora @frostyphoto. // Who are your favorite adventurous instagrammers? 1w

anastasiamika I have dreams. I have goals. I have what's right in front of me. Yet, many times it's so hard to get my hands working. It's a sad reality that I have so much within reach, but because I choose to, I never even get close. God created me to use my mind, body, and soul to its fullest, but because I'm too scared or just plain lazy, only a small fraction of it gets any use. I'm sitting here imagining what could get accomplished in character building, home making, relationships, work (and the list goes on and on) if I use what God has blessed me with to reach out even just a little more. // ➵ Feel free to repost or tag someone who could use a little motivational push. 1w

anastasiamika Sometimes all you need is a pretty card to place atop a kraft box, some washi tape, and voila, you've got yourself a wrapped gift. #anastasiamariewraps // Find these cards and boxes in the shop. #anastasiamarieshop 1w

anastasiamika Added a little green to my space. I have no idea why I didn't do it before but I must say, it looks rather good. It took @smpliving's blog post on ways to liven up an office space for me to actually do it. #anastasiamariestudio 1w

anastasiamika Strawberries, raspberries, and grapes grown in @iyelch's backyard. Talk about tummy-filling goodness. All I can hear is Henry making all sorts of noises in his delight with strawberry juice dripping down his chin onto his white onesie. #onthetable 1w

anastasiamika Three hours later, he's still snoozing. I'm used to him only napping about 1.5 hours max, so this is incredible. I guess the big bed is just better. I mean, that pillow is sure getting some love. #henrymika 1w

anastasiamika It's been a dream of mine to learn how to do what these calligraphers do, but I still haven't managed the time to take on another adventure. In the meantime, I drool over the posts from this week's #followfriday gals and you should too: @afabulousfete @wildfieldpaperco @writtenwordcalligraphy @signoraemare // who are some of your favorite calligraphers? 2w

anastasiamika Kraft paper bags are the perfect solution for a quick package. Especially when paired with a metallic or glittering sticker. #anastasiamarieshop #anastasiamariecards 2w
