These monthly wrap up posts keep getting pushed further and further into the next month- I love that, because it makes me realize how much I am diversifying my content on this little internet space of mine. First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who reached out last Friday after my open and honest post about my journey to a healthier me. The more love we have for ourselves, the more love there is to share with others, and that feeling was echoed with everyone I talked to! Serious virtual hugs!
This next month is my last breath of summer and calm before September hits and I take 16 glorious days of vacation from work. Yep, that’s right. A Labor Day weekend trip to Toronto for a wedding, a quick drive to Buena Vista for an incredible wedding with 14ers as the backdrop… followed by a drive to the airport to jetset across the pond! My family is going on a vacation in Portugal, and of course Noah & I had to plan something crazy to attach onto that… so we are continuing on to INDIA where we will spend 2 weeks in Northern India exploring temples, eating street food (send me good wishes), and walking everywhere. Tell me again how crazy this is because I haven’t wrapped my brain around how many incredible people we will get to visit with.
But this past month? A festive birthday, plenty of tacos and froyo, farm fresh produce and easy cooking (the reason behind my easy summer meals post!). I am just savoring each of these summer days – I can’t get enough of this late evening light. Just go ahead and feast your eyes on this goodness and tell me what plans you have brewin’ for this weekend!
