Freedom: From the Inside Out

Hi friends, welcome to July! I can practically smell the BBQ, sunscreen, and humidity, see the fireworks, and hear “Proud to be an American” in my mind.

August: It’s Play Time!

Hello friends, happy August! Although there is still a full month of summer ahead, back-to-school ads are already starting to pop up everywhere and I can’t help but feel a sense of “fun is ending/work is starting” in the air.
