August - An Idea for Every Day - Week 1

The final month of summer is upon us. I hope it finds you well, with summertime goals accomplished and plans for the fall filling your mind. Although, I have to say, I was not prepared to see Halloween costumes and pumpkin spice coffee already shelved at stores. Anyone else feel like it was March just yesterday? It has been a year! This summer has definitely been eventful for us. Our highlight from last week was witnessing my brother's wedding. It was beautiful! And we felt honored to witness it.

June - An Idea for Every Day - Week 3

This is it: the week of my birthday. It’s funny how when we get older, birthdays don’t mean as much. It’s just another number, another year, another day. But perhaps it does provide an opportunity to reflect. The first time I felt a loss to my youth was on my thirtieth birthday when reminded I was no longer a “twenty-something.” Then again as Harry Potter hit its 20 th anniversary. Seriously, how has it been that long!?! Time passes so much faster as an adult. What makes you feel time’s speed? Check out the line-up we have for you this week (click each link to jump to details about that day): Flag Day (6.14.2020) Electricity Day (6.15.2020) Fresh Veggies Day (6.16.2020) World Croc Day (6.17.2020) International Picnic Day (6.18.2020) Pets in Film Day (6.19.2020) Summer Solstice (6.20.2020) And remember, we’re serving it to you several ways.
