Goodbye July!


July was a complex month that flew by in a matter of days…  At least that is how it felt!  I do know that I am not quite ready for the end of summer to be here.  It feels unreal that August has already started.  Luckily, I have about 2 months until my fall classes begin.  2 months is enough time to get a lot done!

In the meantime, let’s talk about July!

I cat-sat for my friend Tara.  Her cat goat, is 19 years old!

I was reunited with my friend Phuong & I started running again:


I think running was one of  the best changes I could have made!  Now I sleep well at  night and I have more energy than I did.  Also my study habits have improved.  I think that I must be one of those people who needs exercise to function well.

I got a new set of tires delivered right to our door!

Do our cats look tired?!?!  Haha…

We celebrated life and had more wine, chocolate, and cheese than we knew what to do with!  

That was over the course of a month…  Not a daily thing of course!

I took lots of time for self-care.  Read books, journaled, explored, blogged a lot, went bra shopping, visited the spa, and went exploring.

And of course we made time for friends because “we all need somebody to lean on.”

What kind of month was your July?  Happy, sad, adventurous, stressful, bountiful, luxurious, thrifty?  Comment below to share your stories and adventures!  I would love to hear all about them!

What is the status on your summer goals?  Have you completed some of your missions or are you halfway there?  Maybe there are some missions that you have yet to begin.  What ever your goals are, just get started and start moving!  YOU CAN DO IT!!!

Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,
