Friends. It was 102 degrees today in Utah. We don't have air conditioning (except a small window unit in our room, thank goodness.) It's HOT. SUMMER IS HERE! And while I'm super stoked about all the summer things we've got planned this year, like a trip back East for Beach Week and a day at a water park here in Utah, I'm already over the heat. I'm a fall girl - give me all the cozy leggings and sweaters and jackets and scarves. BUT! I'm trying really hard to not rush through the present and enjoy time as it is right now, instead of complaining and waiting around for the summer heat to end. No sense in waiting for cooler temps to live a vibrant life, right? As . . .

I had the opportunity to attend the Build an Awesome Brand workshop put on by Alison Faulkner from The Alison Show on Friday and my life has been changed in so many ways. Everything from here on out in my life is going to be different. I'm still wrapping my head around some of the things I learned about myself and still sorting through all the emotions that were dug up through the workshop, but I can tell you this now: I've never felt so sure or confident that I'm . . .

I nervously get into the passenger seat of our Ford Edge at 7:40 AM on a Friday morning and buckle myself in. I tell myself over and over again that I shouldn't feel so nervous, that there is no reason to worry, that this is my 12th year of going through this process, but I'm still shaking a little bit.

I don't know about you, but even though this year is literally flying by, I'm so, so stoked that it's summertime and that the 4th of July is around the corner.
