🌞 Summer can be such a magical season of late nights full of laughter and lazy days of sun and fun 🕶 ☀️ so let’s talk about some simple joys of summer such as camping (glampers here ⛺️ ✨) and weekend getaways!
Getting outside during the summer can be an amazing reset for your mind and body. When you’re camping 🏕, you can remove distractions, get away from screens, connect with nature 🍃, marvel at the beauty of God’s creation, and leave behind all the stressors of your everyday life. It’s a great time to reflect on what’s important in your life, what you want more of, what you want less of, and how you want to LIVE. And eat s’mores of course!
And road trips/ weekend getaways are one of the best ways to see the world God created and make memories with friends and family! You get to see new things 👀, eat different food than what your city has to offer, talk to new people, connect with a whole different side of the world around you!
Getting outside in nature, outside our city, outside our comfort zone is a great way to have fun, experience personal growth, and enjoy the joys of summer!

Face Mask Recipe:
So far this week on my IG & FB, we’ve talked a lot about the bad things that can happen to our skin this summer. 👎 Sorry to be a downer but I want everyone to have healthy shiny skin! 😍 One way to do that is to keep your skin well moisturized! Here’s some ways to keep your skin super soft all summer long!
🔎 Find a facial moisturizer with SPF and reapply as often as you would sunscreen. Consider getting two ✌️ of the same moisturizer – one for home and one to keep with you when you’re about so you don’t risk skin damage. (Get 15% off my favorite here)!
🙅♀️ Avoid using cleansers with alcohol, heavy fragrances, or antibacterial detergents as these ingredients can dry out the skin. (Again, I use Fre skincare – click link for discount- It’s formulated for skin that sweats)!
🔒 Apply a moisturizer to your skin after bathing to lock in hydration. (Fre again)!
And to add some extra sparkle to your skin – and give a few minutes of deep relaxation – here’s a simple moisturizing face mask you can make at home!
1/4 ripe avocado
1 tablespoon rolled oats
1 tablespoon honey
In a small bowl, mash the avocado until smooth.
Add the oats and honey, then mix ingredients until they are blended together.
Apply the mask for 10 minutes, then rinse with cool water.

What’s your favorite part of summer? 😎
For a lot of us, it’s staying up late, being with friends outside, maybe around a fire pit or a bonfire 🔥, telling stories, laughing, connecting with others.
The Word says “how good it is when brothers live together in unity” because God created us for one another, for community, for a brotherhood and sisterhood. He knows that we need people. 🤝
These summer moments are so special and memorable to us because we all so deeply crave connection 😍. We want to know there are people out there who “get” us. Who respect us. Who think we’re funny or smart or a good friend 🤗.
We want to know that we matter, that we’re seen, that people get our jokes 😂 and love our stories. When we know there are people out there who love us, care about us, want what’s best for us, it helps us feel safe when the world gets crazy and can give us the confidence to go after what we want.
So this summer, invite some people over for dinner, or a game night, or to simply hang out in your backyard until the moon is glowing bright 🌕 and everyone starts to yawn. Create connections and make memories this summer!
