Stormy Weather

Last night when what looked like to be a giant storm was beginning to roll, I asked Scott if he was up for taking outfit photos next to Tempe Town Lake (he's always up for adventures, and I'm forever thankful). So we made our way down to the lake as quickly as we could before the sun had completely set. We watched the giant sun set within seconds while making our way over the bridge, and just hoped that enough light would stick around so we could get a few shots in. The view from our favorite spot was breathtaking, and for a moment I took everything in - the splashing water, the amazing sunset, the twinkling of the city lights in the background, my sweet Fiancé, and the thought that I love that I have a space to share moments like this with you all. I've said it in the past and I'll say it again, I'm continuously thankful for this online community and the joy that you all bring to my daily life. I can only hope that I do the same for you.

While I thought we were standing in the calm before the storm, the night only got better. After the winds subsided, the same ones that I thought had a good chance of pushing me into the lake (they were strong and I may have been standing too close to the edge), Scott and I took a drive down to Scottsdale to get our first pumpkin spice latte of the season - YES, they're back! I'm almost positive that only a few stores in the area have them for sale right now (even though most, if not all of them, already have the syrups in their backrooms), but I just read an article that says if you whisper "PSL 10" to the barista, they just might grant your wish and make all of your pumpkin spice dreams come true! ;)

If you're not ready yet for pumpkin spice and fall digs just yet, then I suggest taking a ride out to your local lake, river, or ocean and taking in a gorgeous sunset this weekend. Even though I'm a fall super fan, I do love a good late summer sunset on the water. Think of it as your last hurrah before summer ends and fall official starts - don't forget to take pictures!

How do you plan to spend your last few weeks of summer? Any weekend trips or big plans? I would love to take in a ball game, and munch on a giant, salted pretzel (those go hand in hand, but you get the picture).
