Is it hot where you live? In Phoenix, the heat’s unbearable right now. I think I’ve mentioned before how miserable our summers get here, and since we aren’t going on our annual Ocean Beach getaway, this summer seems especially scorching without the promise of the west coast’s relief.

Follow my blog with Bloglovin How was your weekend?!? We celebrated by going to Lake Havasu to relax, see our dear friends and observe all the debauchery. Lake Havasu is something else. If you’ve never been, it’s a little hard to describe. First of all, driving in is like, all huge garages and ugly desert at […]

   So I’m posting from my phone this week, hope it works out! If you follow my Instagram, you know we went camping over the weekend. It had a very soothing effect – aside from the freezing cold! I snapped a few pictures with my camera, but due to the extreme temps, I used my […]

Hey, hey! How was your week? Last weekend, Joe and I took a quick little trip to San Francisco and explored their amazing city, cramming as much into our day and a half + two nights as possible.
