10 Ways to #LiveBrighter as a Family

Even though it is supposed to be a relaxing time, summer around here can get pretty crazy! Between work and our normal responsibilities, there’s also summer camp, pool parties, traveling, time with friends and family, and so much more! Some summers I’m so excited for school to start again just so I can catch my breath!


This summer we decided to set aside our busy schedules and simply enjoy time together as a family. We just got back from a road trip to Destin, Florida and it was as dreamy as they come! We spent a few days relaxing and playing on the beach and a few adventurous days at the water park.

It was the perfect week of family, food, and sun and was the definitely the chance to re-charge and refresh that we all needed.
