Freed Up Girl

Unplugged

Thursday, July 7, 2016

Living in a digital world, the amount of time we spend behind a computer and on our phones is excessive

For me, working from home has definitely increased my usage. Jer will come into my (home) office and remind me that I have not moved for five, six hours(yes, sometimes it is that long). He then likes to boast about all the times he was able to get up from his desk, walk around, and how sitting for so long is not good for you...blahblahblah.  I know, I know. But, when I'm in the zone I find it hard to walk away (working on it). 

It is refreshing to step away from everything. Take a road trip and unplug from it all. 


We drove up north to Flagstaff for a quick getaway. I can't tell you how nice it was to finally feel a cool breeze.


Luna was in her element and was all smiles when she exited the car. Instantly taking the lead.


We were on our way to Bismark Lake. This is such an easy walk with the pine tree covered mountains as your backdrop. Now, finding the trail head is a different story. We ended up taking the scenic, off-roading route. We were praying the granny mobile would not get a flat. She held up like a champ.


We raced to the lake...

{Body Suit-Here}

To quickly find out that it was completely dried up. With only a small puddle to distinguish it's previous existence. So we had to come up with other things to do...sword fight anyone?!?!


Luna was watching intently. Secretly cheering me on. Jer will never admit it but she likes me best. 


I may have taken it a bit too seriously...


He was legit terrified. (It's a stick babe, relax.)


Leaving him in the fetal position, I walked away triumphantly. (Who runs the world, girls!) 


Boys will be boys.


The clouds started to roll in and we felt a few drops so we packed up our stuff, took in one last view, and headed home.

Chill Out

Tuesday, July 5, 2016

One of the many things I love about Arizona is that you are pretty much guaranteed sunny days. I can not tell you the last time I actually saw rain. If it does happen it's like you blink and miss it. Now, we will just ignore the fact that it soars above 100 degrees at the moment. But, it's a dry heat?!? Ha.

This 4th of July we brought out the big guns and cooled off at home.  

Hiking Napali Coast

Friday, July 1, 2016

We found it! Our last day on the island we decided to head back and tackle the Kalalau Trail. And let me just say that we were so glad we did. The views speak for themselves. Insane. 

Kauai- Waimea Canyon

Thursday, June 9, 2016

Getting lost was becoming the theme of our trip. We woke up early to
hike the Napali Coastline. Instead, we found ourselves on the opposite side of the island and stumbled upon the magnificent Waimea Canyon (aka the Grand Canyon of the Pacific).

June- Book Recommendations

Tuesday, June 7, 2016

There is nothing I enjoy more than lounging by the pool with a cold beverage and a good book. My summer reading list is growing rapidly. I thought I would share a few that I just finished.
