Did you have a great July? I hope so. Maybe it included sunny, breezy days, a creative breakthrough, or an indulgent summertime sweet (like the fudgy ice cream cone I had tonight). Whatever it was you needed this month, I hope you got even the littlest bit of it. And, if not, we’ve still got August!
For me, I started the month at a truly special creative retreat with Lotta Jansdotter in the Åland Islands (more on that to come). Now, I end July and begin August in northern Michigan, visiting family and reconnecting with memories from childhood summers. Soon, I’ll be enjoying a nice break from travel and hopefully reconnecting with home. What do you have in store for the final weeks of summer?
