A DAY AT THE BEACH WITH FINN // WILMINGTON, NC EDITION

November 4, 2013

Finn is a pup that knows what he wants. Hungry? He’s gonna unleash the pup whimpers and get a treat. Tired? He’s going to spread out on that king size bead and gather those blankets to make the perfect, cozy nook. Excited? He’s going to run his little Westie heart out on the beach until he can’t run no more.

Thus was a day on the Wilmington, NC beach with Finn…

SOUTH(ERN) AMERICA TOUR // PART I

October 29, 2013

So…we’ve cruised…and cruised…and cruised for approximately 2,700 miles. Boy did we see, do, eat, experience a lot. So much so, I’ve decided to break my recap posts into two, if you don’t mind.

On the first leg of our #southernamericatour / #pupventure13 (did you follow along on Instagram by any chance?) we toured through the southwest. From SoCal to Sedona to Albuquerque to Oklahoma City, down through Texas to Houston (and back!), me and Mr. Harvey ventured across all the desert and ranch-land one could ever imagine.

While the terrain all blended into one after some time, we couldn’t help but enjoy the absolute splendor around us. Open land, wild foliage and roaming animals…truly majestic. And as the photo-obsessed lady that I am, we did our fair share of stop – snap – drive along our journey. So today I’m sharing a selection of pics from our trip:

We arrived in New Mexico during their annual Balloon Fiesta, and boy what a site! Hundreds of balloons floating overhead full of color and shapes…just breathtaking.

As we closed our journey, we made a quick stop in Gilbert, AZ to visit some new friends and meet the wonderful Conan the Coonhound.

As I’ve said in the past and will say again, traveling with your dog offers a special kind of magic that you just can’t find elsewhere.  Living through their excitement to see, hear, smell and simply take in each and every new environment is so invigorating and keeps gets me excited for each new destination and adventure that awaits.

If life seems a bit dull, do yourself a favor – adopt a pup and hit the road.

Cheers,

Steph

A DAY AT THE BEACH

January 22, 2013

beach day | House of Harvey

Winter was just lovely in LA, all two weeks of it.  This past weekend we had an unusual warm front, with 80 degree beach weather.  Pretty phenomenal really.

So what to do on a hot winter afternoon?  Go to the beach for a picnic of course.

Mr. Harvey, my mother and I ventured off to the famous Huntington Dog beach for an afternoon of picnicking in the sun. Whether you love dogs or just enjoy the sun, this beach can’t help but put a smile on your face.  Humans and dogs alike are running in the waves, playing catch, building sand castles and lounging in the sunny rays.

It was truly a magical way to enjoy a magical day of heat in the middle of winter.
