As I mentioned in this post, I went to Northern Idaho over the 4th of July long weekend to visit my Godmother and her family. Her and my mom have been best friends since the 7th grade and her daughter is my Goddaughter so we all have a pretty special relationship and bond. They live in a town called Sandpoint on a gorgeous property complete with a field that has a huge garden, a she-shed and a barn (pictured above). They are collectors of sorts so you may have seen the Instagram pic of me on their vintage bike or their 67’ Caddy. They had so many cool props I seriously ran out of outfits to shoot with them! Being a blogger I am constantly on the lookout for locations to shoot so passing through this cool little town, gorgeous countryside and lakeside views AND staying on such a beautiful property I was overwhelmed with ideas for photo shoots. I felt very trendy-country in my little prairie top, denim shorts and Freebird by Steven booties.
Sandpoint has been named one of the most beautiful small towns in America and has become quite the tourist destination. The town itself is filled with cute little shops and restaurants. Don’t leave this place without buying yourself some huckleberry syrup or huckleberry everything to take home with you, all the huckleberry goodies are delicious. All the restaurants serve huckleberry lemonade which is to die for. Be sure to check out the Farmer’s Market, there’s so many cool vendors. My goddaughter and I got bracelets (the one I’m wearing above) from one of the local jewelry designers Staci Schubert Accessories. You’ll also want to check out city beach and eat at Trinity restaurant. You can also rent bikes to tour the area not to mention there are so many water sports. If you follow me on Snapchat (username AmberWilk2) you may have seen my goddaughter and her friends take me jumping off a train bridge. Apparently this is a normal thing to do out there. We originally were going to go out to Green Bay to jump off the cliffs there but due to weather and time we didn’t make it out there but if you aren’t afraid of heights and up for adventure that’s the activity for you.
