Summer in the Southwest

July 3, 2014 6:56 pm Published by

You know, many people bemoan the sweltering heat and blazing sunshine that consumes the Phoenix Valley during the summer but as an Indiana native, I will gladly deal with 100+ temps for a couple months to avoid bitter cold snowstorms! They say, after all, it is a dry heat. 🙂

To avoid sunburns and ward off heat exhaustion, you will find me working away in the new air-conditioned Zenned Out Studio and searching for fun items on Etsy! The Arizona desert is truly a beautiful place and I found a few little gems that make me smile about life in the Southwest–even during the summer!


1. This suit is just too adorable! 2. My husband is the one with the green thumb–I had better stick to handmade succulents. 3. I just love this banner! 4. I think I could definitely wear this dress everyday! 5. My summer mantra. 6. I always love seeing these little guys running around! 7. These colorful, geometric cactus earrings are fantastic!
