I never mentioned it when this series began in January, but the biggest reason for starting the 7 things love fest was to help me truly appreciate every single month of the year. So far it is working really well, even as the weather has gotten hotter I’ve managed to focus on my 7 things and show each month the love it deserves instead of just getting by until my favorite time of year arrives again. Time flies so fast (case in point, it’s August already how did that happen?), wanting to skip over the bits that aren’t our favorite seems ungrateful and wasteful.
But August? Well August and I struggle to get along. It is so hot, and it seems to go on for so long, and the retailers and magazines keep teasing us with fall fashions, and for the love can’t it just be September already! I’m pretty shocked to have found 7 whole things to love about this month, but here they are, and I plan to hold onto them in a mental kung fu grip as I try not to just shut my eyes until it’s over. I hope August treats you well, crank the AC and pass me the poptails.
