We have been counting down the days until our local pool would open, and luckily it was ready just in time for the heat that settled in here in Atlanta. I have a feeling I will be parking it by the water to get through the last trimester of summer. Give me all the popsicles and watermelon please!

Growing up, I admitedly would go for the tanning oil over the SPF 50 in high school. I opted for the quick tan! This lasted through college ( I have many freckles to show for it) without much thought to it, until we had a loved one diagnosed with skin cancer. My aunt, who my family loved dearly lost her battle with melanoma cancer when I was pregnant with Veronica. I still get an ache in my throat when I think of her, and I have resolved since to bring more awareness not only to the brevity of life, but an awareness of the causes of skin cancer. Generations ago there was not much information on the damage of UV rays, but we now have the research that directly links the damage of UVA and UVB rays to unprotected skin. I have no excuses, and I am choosing to be more proactive with my family about skin health.

I was really happy to discover Cabana Life which has an entire line of really fun swimwear and rashguards designed to protect you and your little ones over the summer. Since sunscreen is not always enough to prevent bad sunburn, I was thankful for swim options that protect 90% of UVA and UVB rays. I can’t get over Max in his striped number. So much cuteness. Veronica thinks she got a new dress, Gabriel didn’t even question the extra coverage, and my husband thought the men’s rashguard was really well made (he’s a tough critic!). So far, I’m winning. (Wink wink.)

You can see the full Cabana Life line here, and learn more about their efforts for skin cancer awareness. They are offering IHOD readers 20% off through the end of the month with code: MAYBL256. Hope you enjoy!
