Fun in the Sun | Sunburn & Sunset


What a gorgeous weekend to be at the beach! The water, sand and sun was simply fabulous – so warm, refreshing and calming! In and out of the water proved to heat things up with some of us getting a little extra sun. Imagine that, me as a red head under an umbrella for the better part of the day getting a sunburn 😉

I mixed up this super easy DIY Sunburn Soothing Relief with Aloe Vera Gel, 10 drops each of Lavender, Melalueca (Tea Tree), Frankincense with 8 drops of Peppermint. Cooling and very soothing to the skin with wonderful skin healing benefits as well.


At least once each summer I take all the kids on a photo walk – the mere purpose of getting similar photos each year of all the kids on the beach in the same area. This year they had some beautiful ideas of their own which really personalized the shots. I am so incredibly happy with them! These are my littles – they didn’t even plan to match and they did perfectly 😉


Saturday evening I had some time to myself – completely alone after dinner so I went for a drive to capture the sunset. Boy was it simply amazing. The sun rays came directly to me. I sat for an entire hour, by myself on the beach. It was relaxing, refreshing, cleansing and energizing all at the same time.


This little dude came along while I was enjoying the scenery and hung out with me the entire time I sat there.


Peace is seeing a sunset and knowing who to thank.


I can still feel the warmth  and energy of the sunlight shining directly at me.

“Keep your face to the sun and you will never see the shadows.”
Helen Keller


The windows of my soul I throw
Wide open to the sun.
