Capitol Reef National Park

Hi. Remember me? Ha.
No excuses for not blogging over here, really, except for, honestly, it just hasn't been a priority for over the past couple of months. And you know what? I think that is just fine. There are certain things that are priorities at different times of life and for me, the past few months, this blog has not been it. With that being said, I am excited to share with you some photos and adventures that we've had this summer. I genuinely needed summer after a year of teaching. Unfortunately, I've been in meetings for new science core, grant work for language arts, etc. that I haven't had much time to really "have summer." With that being said, I am grateful that I have the luxury to be able to do these things in the first place.

Last weekend, T and one of my besties, Carli, and I went down to Capitol Reef National Park. I'm not going to lie to you: It was a rough a day! Yes, it was beautiful and I am so grateful we had the adventure, but it was HOT. So hot that my entire back and shoulders are now peeling. My hiking boots were giving me blisters. I get heat exhaustion quite easily so I was tired and out of shape and I was discouraged (more on that later). I am grateful I had those two with me because I was just a big baby on this day. Either way, like I said, it was beautiful. Next time when we head down we will wake up super early to hike and right before sunset so we aren't shriveling up in the sun! T and I want to hit up as many national parks in the country over the course of our lives.

But, you all know me, I took a million photos to document. Enjoy :)

That's supposed to say "Capitol Reef" Ha. 

This is what happens when your hair overtakes everything. This happens every night. Ha.
