Happy August 1st!
The poor, lonely month without a holiday (outside of my bday) MUST be celebrated!

It's the hottest month of the summer
The driest month of the summer
The laziest month of summer

And it's my favorite.
(Not just cause of my bday either)
Maybe I am predisposed to love it because I was born in it.

I think of water balloon fights, cupcakes and ice cream, playing in the park, napping in the shade, floating the river, sunflowers in bloom, dragonflies in full force, gardens gone crazy, paddle boarding. ..   Those are pretty fond memories of August.

I love spring and fall most, but August still captures a giant chunk of my heart.
