Hi Amy,

Oh my gosh! It’s August already!

For many of us, August heralds the beginning of the end –– the end of long sunlit days, the heat of the summer, night after night of BBQs, and lots of family and friends’ get-togethers.

It also means the return to school for teachers and students alike.

It reminds me to:

Stay focused on the present moment.

Focus on the joy I get from watching the birds and animals in my backyard.

Appreciate each and every bite of farm fresh produce, the delicious sweet corn and tomatoes, the zucchini, and cucumbers. It is a time to feast on fresh tomatoes with basil from my garden, fresh mozzarella, and balsamic vinegar.

Savor and extend the season in every way for as long as possible.

If this is your first newsletter from me, welcome! Through my involvement in the ELEVATE Virtual Conference and Giveaway, many people joined my the mailing list and received my free gift. (You can get it here too!)

The ELEVATE Virtual Conference is happening this week and my session is on Thursday, August 3. You can still sign up for all of the sessions and it is free! Use this link to register and get access to 21 topics including mine!

Until the next time, I love and appreciate you,

Amy 🩷🩵
