How has your August been, Darling Hearts? Remembering to wear your sunscreen, I hope! Our heat index is usually so high I have to restrict my outdoor activities to errands, and early morning and evening stuff only, but the past couple of weeks have started cooling off and we’re getting a taste of Autumn here. I’m loving it! I’m a Kapha dosha, if ever there was one! Here are some things other I’ve been especially grateful for the month of August. Hope you enjoy reading up on what I’ve been up to!
First of all, I’m FINALLY working on my aromatherapy certification! 17 years in the making and the curriculum was written by a personal hero of mine. Dreams are coming true daily over here! I can’t even think about it without tears of gratitude streaming down my face. This is happening. It’s really happening.
I also took the leap and am about to begin doing some health and fitness coaching in the incredibly near future. I’m still learning the ropes and am working on my own weight loss journey, but I am looking so forward to hosting some accountabity groups soon and encouraging folks to take control of their health and their lives. I’m a remarkably different person than I was when I began just a few months ago. I have more confidence in myself, I’m happier, I’m grounded, I eat and sleep better, not to mention the pounds I’ve dropped. I can’t wait to see where this road takes me. I’ll be sure to invite you all to my first challenge group when I get going!
But, a girl does have to treat herself sometime, am I right? I discovered this heavenly watermelon coconut ice cream recipe that has been my favorite indulgence to date. It’s vegan, too. I’m always thankful for a good recipe, especially if it combines my favorite flavors into my favorite kind of treat. The beauty of this is that you don’t need a fancy machine to make it, either!
I have been on a DIY kick lately, and have been making a lot of jewelry and home decor stuff when I have a spare moment, so when I found this tutorial for handmade earrings that look anything but, I thought I should share. It seriously couldn’t be easier and there are three cute variations for you to try.
I hope the remaining days of August find you well, happy and healthy. Please feel free to comment with anything exciting that’s been going on in your lives, anything cool you discovered, or anything that you’re especially thankful for this month. I love hearing from you!
Wishing You Total Well-Being,
