This is the last time I’ll say it, I promise… summer is officially here! Happy longest day of the year! I’m commemorating the official start to summer by camping in the Rocky Mountains for the weekend. Doesn’t a night under a big full moon and away from your phone and laptop sound nice? What are your weekend plans?

There sure is a lot to celebrate this father’s day weekend! A special congratulations to Ryan who is his spending his first father’s day with baby Caroline.

I’ve enjoyed seeing many touching father of the bride photos surface this past week – what are your favorite memories with your dad? Or do you have any fun father’s day plans to share?

The beginning of summer is so magical. There are so many things to love about it – the first trip to the pool or beach, an early season family barbecue, anticipation for an upcoming vacation… But my absolute favorite thing has to be the light at dusk right before the sun goes down entirely. What is your most favorite thing about summer?
