Um, WHERE DID SUMMER GO?

I love summer. I love everything about it! Warm weather, tanning, bikini shopping, swims in the ocean, boating at the lake, layin’ poolside, working out outside, hiking, staying out later and later, CONCERTS, camping, and most of all a damn break from school. For a 20 year old like myself, it’s very easy to pile on responsibility after responsibility when school is in session and you are trying balance work– then a social life as well? L.O.L.

Safe to say, when May rolls around my life gets a little bit more relax and I physically, mentally, and emotionally am able to have a break! ahhh…

This summer was HOT. Sacramento is located right in between earth and the sun and sweating 24-7 is the only option. But besides living in a complete sauna (I may over exaggerate A LOT) I have managed to have the best time ever in the school free months that have passed by way too quickly.

This has been the first summer I have officially been living with my awesome boyfriend. It is exciting because we both have very busy schedules with work, family, and friends but we managed to spend so much time together and with our “people”. Keeping a strong relationship while living your own life with your own separate work, or school, hobbies, and then friends is more than possible and actually incredibly healthy as in turns out. I moved in December of 2015 and all I have to say is I have never been happier… I know, gross right?

SUMMER OVERALL:

Traveling to Europe with my brother and grandma for a religious pilgrimage to Medgugorje was AMAZING. My life truly changed forever… if you have not heard of the town of Medgugorje before it is in Bosnia… and for any info on the amazing things that happen there visit http://www.mej.com for your mind to be blown! (CAUTION: THE MATTERS ON THE WEBSITE ARE SUPER CATHOLIC but AMAZING)

Something about traveling seriously compels me to do something amazing with my life…

CONCERTS:

The Sublime concert was probably also the highlight of my Summer… Concerts are a MUST in the summer or whenever you can honestly. I try to go to as many as possible with my family and girls (my boyfriend hates them). Seeing Sublime & The Dirty Heads blew me away! If you have not listened to them I highly suggest it… invite your family & friends drink some wine and dance your booties off!! Best. Workout. Ever.
