Locke is one of my favorite places on the planet. I feel like those of us who get to experience its magic share a little secret that no one else knows. It’s definitely one of those rare places I only share with my closest peeps, those who I know will appreciate its history, silence, quirks, cats, tilting buildings, rickety steps and overgrown gardens. Yesterday I got to share Locke with two beautiful gals, my friend Cindy and her daughter, Emma. We went to “research” my assignment for work, and I couldn’t have asked for better company or a better assignment. It was fun to see them get excited about the small charms of the town, the same things I fall in love with and photograph every time I walk through. It was also great to explore with another photo-bugg, who is finding her eye, taking beautiful pictures and falling in love with the camera. Got to Cindy’s blog to see her artful take on Locke.
Thanks, girlies, for a really great day!

Thanks for being my co-early-morning-river-lovah @janelle_meyers! #FirstWePaddleThenWeDoThings #paddleboard #sunrisepaddle #thankful #OneWorkoutDownHappy, happy birthday to my favorite Henoveva. #lalaladiesnight #WeHeartGenevieveClusters. #grapes #grapevines #winery #lodicaBeautiful paddle on Fourth of July morning. #Swipe #CoffeeNPaddles #StandUpPaddle #paddle #lodicaLast night I dreamt about happy plant babies and blossoming cuttings. That’s probably what you get when you fall asleep to videos about propagating fiddle leaf fig leaves. My own plant babies need some love this holiday week, but I’m pretty happy that my fiddle leaf is thriving after I almost tossed it when I thought it was a goner two years ago with only one lone leaf. That might be my best IKEA purchase yet. I brought a second fiddle leaf home last week and hope it likes this bright room just as much. #growlittleplantbaby #fiddleleaf #plantroom #showmeyourbohoPaddling into sunsets and beneath full moons. #fullmoonpaddle #lodica #standuppaddle #afterworkvibesReason #56,841 summer is awesome: Concerts happen in orchards under towering shade trees. #NotToMentionAmazingFriends #lodicaSwipe!
