This weekend Ash and I had a chance to get away for the day and spend some time driving around Northern Arizona and exploring around the woods a bit. When we both got back from our road trips about two weeks ago and we’re pretty busy, Ash with her awesome new job and my schedule full of work and lots of rehearsals, so getting away and out of reception was bliss. It’s always perfect repeating our favorite kind of date - long drive, lots of music, great conversation, exploring a new wilderness, lunch at a cafe, and a nice drive home with tired legs. It was a great weekend. Always an adventure with this gal.
Exploring around with her.

I had such a blast playing with my pals Grace and Perry last night. We opened up for Brothers Comatose and they really kill it. Ash took some awesome photos of them gettin down.

I ran into my friend Richard the other day and we had a real solid chat. He also has an incredibly solid beard. Richard takes great photographs, does some incredible design work, and is an all around great dude. Check him out.
I got back from tour a few days ago and I missed this gal a ton. Ash also just returned from an awesome month long Pacific Northwest backpacking/road trip with her best pal Allie. Catching up with her, swapping funny stories, new memories, talking about what our trips taught us as individuals and taught us as us, and just generally being in her physical presence has been bliss. She’s been off in Denver the past few days training for a great AmeriCorps position she landed and I’m pretty damn proud of her. This gal and I got a good thing going on.
If you fancy following a gorgeous, backpacking, desert dwelling, kindhearted, photo taking, global health badass with a baking problem you can find her here:

It’s raining today. One of my favorite times of year in Arizona is monsoon season and I’m happy to be home in time to catch some of it. I don’t know a smell that brings more comfort and more thoughts of home than rain in the desert.
I’m going home…
