I've had a few emails come in on how to beat the heat in these blazing summer months...this is a question that i cannot rightfully answer, for this heat is most definitely beating me! But in an effort to not go down in total humiliation against the enemy, I've gathered together some of my summer essentials, for when I do get brave enough to put some clothes on and venture into the sun! Hope you enjoy--you can click directly on the image and it will take you to the site to find out more about it or to buy! Thanks for reading! And please, share any summer tips :)
Last weekend we got done with dinner quite early and since it wasn't over 100 degrees outside, we decided to take a quick stroll around the Mesa Temple to enjoy the gardens and watch the sunset. While the weather was not particularly enjoyable, it was bearable, and bearable is something we strive for here in Arizona during the summer months (unfortunately). Right was we turned the corner to one of my favorite little spots on the temple grounds, we saw one, then two, then three cottontail rabbits. They were so tiny and hoppy i thought i had entered a fairy tale! Their little tails truly looked like you glued on a little cotton swab to their behind! I was enamored--this shouldn't surprise you, coming from a girl who has spent far too many afternoons watching "Too Cute" on Netflix--but seriously, that show IS TOO CUTE!
Baby humans are cute and all, but baby animals!? Don't get me started...

For the past week I've been surrounded by extended family and it's been so lovely.
We started off last weekend at our cabin in the mountains. Marcus, Poppy and I joined my sister, Leisel and her hubs Sterling for a weekend of hikes, pancakes and shooting.
The girls in our family have a long history of being naturally good shots, so it's always fun to show off our hidden talent to the boys.

B did her best with the BB gun, but I think she still needs a few years to develop some wrist strength before her talents can be properly judged :)
Marcus clearly looked smokin', so he gets the most photos in this post, because i love him, especially when he plays cowboy.
And I, although I much prefer riffles, held my own with this little revolver.
I gave Leisel the chance to reenact her stance to photo purposes. I think she looks much more intimidating in this shot.
It was of course a lovely time in the forest.
