So this is about...a month late. But it's never too late to share stories and snaps of blogger babe vibes and sunny, sandy days. In early July, Internet cutie-slash-adorable friend Payton of THE TINY DARLING blog flew into Colorado for a visit. Her first day here happened to be the 4th O' July, so early in the morning we threw on our suits and took off in search of a beachy place to lizard on.

albie update

I know, I know. You don't particularly care about my travels. "Sure, your monthly faves are cool and all but..." and "Okay, okay, we get it, another outfit post." Don't worry. I know what you want from this blog. It is small, and puffy, and has a cute snoot. 
Well, folks, here he is. The real star of The What's In Between. Albs has been loving the recent move to Colorado. He's quite popular at the dog park about three minutes from the house and is totally thriving in the cooler temps and endless dog-friendly establishments throughout town. 

While I was off touring the globe, he spent a few days in my tiny hometown in Nebraska. My mother thoroughly spoiled him. 
He took lots of naps. And apparently, a dog bed isn't quite up to his standards anymore. It's human pillows or bust, baby. 
He also dined on his favorite dish--pizza. AT THE GROWN-UPS TABLE.  (Okay. So maybe this one didn't have anything to do with my mother spoiling him, but rather the slices left unguarded table-top with a chair in the prime position for even the smallest of legs to clamber onto.) 
But  something tells me he still missed me...:) 

and because I'm not obsessive about my puff enough..,
follow him. <3 his junk

virginia is for lovers

I felt I needed something decidedly patriotic after a month of indulging in foreign sights.

We still have a bit of travel to get through before our adventure posts are over, but I thought after the excitement of Europe, it'd be nice to take a break and do a lil' style blogging.

zandvoort in the sand

 In my never ending inherent ~quirkiness~, I've found I much prefer a cloudy, cold beach to a hot, sunny one.

Although our second day in Amsterdam promised left over blue skies from the day before, after a quick brunch at the most delicious Buffet van Odette...
...the clouds rolled in. Luckily, we had scheduled a day at the famous Rijksmuseum, a palace packed with Dutch art from all ages.
