Happy 4th of July! This will be a short holiday post, but I wanted to update you on my summer adventure. During the month of July, Johnny and I are indulging in the ultimate all-American summer pastime--the road trip. We will be traveling to the Badlands, the Black Hills, Devils Tower, Yellowstone, Glacier National Park, all over the Pacific Coast down Highway 1, Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon and Colorado! It is truly a once in a lifetime journey.
We are very lucky to have lifestyles that coincide currently to enable us to go on this trip. Everyday I am thankful for a job that allows me summers that are flexible for travel time. This is one of the major benefits of working for family! However, there is no one more deserving of this trip than Johnny--having made it through all the years of medical school and residency, he is finally going to start his own practice which I know will be a great success.
Even if you can't take off and adventure for such a large chunk of time, I encourage all of you to find your own wanderlust this summer and see where it takes you. Challenge yourself to not let money or time be excuses--stretch your budget, take that extra day off and see how energized and expanded your mind feels after even the smallest adventure.
I hope everyone has a fun celebration for the 4th! I chose the picture above not only because, to me, it exemplifies summer and the adventure of being on the road, but also because this would be a classic 4th of July outfit. How cute would a bikini look under this crochet top? It doesn't get more classic than denim shorts and aviator sunglasses.
