Zion National Park

Zion National Park

This year we went to Zion National Park! I’m not quite sure why, but Zion was actually not on the top of my list for destination locations, but it was a national park and it was relatively close, so we decided to go. As always,  I was wrong. Zion is absolutely spectacular! So many Beautiful sites and easy little hikes to do.  It’s fun to just explore with no particular destination in mind.  Beautiful sights, breathtaking mountainscapes, and cute little deer and mountain goats, are all things you’ll see along the way.

Delicious Sugar Cookie Dessert

Delicious Sugar Cookie Dessert

These little cookies are one my absolute favorite desserts to make. And, they don’t necessarily have to be a 4th of July themed dessert. It’s easy to add some different colors with kiwi, mango, or any other type of fruit combination, and it changes the whole look of the cookie. But, today, considering it's 4th of July, red white and blue it is!  The combination of berries and cream cheese frosting on a sugar cookie is perfection. They’re my go to dessert for pretty much any party I go to. One, because everybody absolutely loves them, and two because they're so pretty and fun to make.

A Floral Dress, and a Grocery Store Run

A Floral Dress, and a Grocery Store Run

So this dress from Forever 21 came in the mail today, and I'm completely obsessed! So comey, so soft, so flattering, and SO cheap!! It's was only $25. Seriously such a great price for such a pretty dress. Obviously I couldn't wait to wear it, but unfortunately, editing and grocery shopping were the only things on today's agenda. But, why not turn a boring grocery store outing into a fun little photo shoot?

The Perfect Skirt

The Perfect Skirt

There’s just something about the traditional polka dot pattern that always makes them fun to wear. Wanna feel like you’re the beautiful heroine in a 1950s romance film? Get some polka dots.  They really are a timeless fashion trend. I feel so girly and classic at the same time.
The skirt I’m wearing is so comfortable and soft. I should probably also mention that it fits like an absolute dream! It’s the perfect summer date night outfit, 4th of July party attire, or just an occasion where you feel like dressing up.  Does one really need a reason to dress up and feel beautiful?  I don’t think so. 

A Date Night At The Fair

A Date Night At The Fair

So, when I actually think about it, I don’t really hate the fair.  I love the seriously questionable food. I love that it’s a fun summer date night. I love the ridiculously expensive games, and the cute little animals. I love the Ferris Wheel at sunset and the cheesy photo booth kissing pictures. I love that it’s remained relatively the same for over 100 years.  I guess I just love what it illustrates; tradition and the coming of summer.

Santorini, Greece

Santorini, Greece

When you think of Greece, what comes to mind?  Ancient cities? Whitewashed homes and churches with brightly colored roofs tucked in the hills of its numerous small islands? The deep blue crystal waters of the Aegean and Ionian Seas?  Well, good, you’re on the right track.  But, seriously, that is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to experiencing this place. There is SO much more to this incredible country.  The culture, the people, the food, and let’s not forget that it is the birthplace of Western civilization as we know it today.  

Iceland

Iceland

Iceland, a country that is so often described as simply ‘indescribable’.  A land that brings ‘natural beauty’ to an entirely different level due to its stunning environmental contradictions. Seriously, though. In Iceland, volcano and lava meet ice and frozen tundra. How is that even possible? I don’t know the science behind it, but I do know it’s worth seeing.
