June was the craziest month for us. We started the month out right away with an extended family vacation up north on Lake Holcombe, Wisconsin for 9 days. We really couldn’t have had better weather, and the cabin was absolutely perfect—right on the water, with a private beach, and plenty of rooms for my family, my mom, my sisters and their kids & husbands. We spent every single minute soaking up the sun, playing on the beach, wakeboarding and surfing, and hitting up playgrounds and ice cream shops when we needed a little water break. The babes did surprisingly well, considering our 3 year old always sleeps in his own bed and while at the cabin, he was on a blow-up mattress on our bedroom floor. It was a perfect getaway, close enough to home but far enough away.
Once we got back, we had a week to recover, unpack, laundry (for dayssss), catch up on work, get a few workouts in, only to pack our bags again for a trip to Whistler, Canada. Just me and the husband this time…no kiddos 🙂 Brent earned this trip through work, and we debated for a few months whether or not we would go, since we knew it was going to butt up to the family cabin trip. The more we thought about it, the more we realized that we would probably never have this chance again so we took it.
Our usual vacation trips are always somewhere in Mexico. You can’t go wrong with cheap airfare, the beach and water, and all-inclusive drinks 🙂 We knew going into the Canada trip that it would be much different. It was incredible, completely insane. From true whitewater rafting, to my first gondola ride up to Whistler Mountain, the views were spectacular. We literally felt like we were on top of the world. It was really an indescribable feeling. We took a fun “nature walk” that turned into getting lost for three hours. We ended up calling a cab and heading to a bar, followed with three much deserved cases of Corona. We took razors up through the mountains for 2 hours. And of course, there was lounging by the pool, dips in the hot tub, lots of adult beverages, fantastic food, and great conversation. We even got a few workouts in, too.
It was the month of high highs and then a gut-wrenching low. I don’t want to get into details, since there are still so many unanswered questions, but just know that my sister, her baby, and our family really need some major prayers right now.
I’m hoping July will bring hope and understanding, and be a month of getting back to the grind. Focusing on work, house projects, working out, and productive weekends at home. That all sounds pretty damn amazing to me…there’s nothing I like better than schedule and routine, let’s not forget health and happiness, too.
Now onto your Free July Wallpapers. This design is bolder and edgier than my usual designs, like May’s floral wreath wallpaper and June’s abstract acrylic wallpaper. But I sorta dig it. I hope you do, too. Scroll below to get the links to your free downloads.
