August the Month of Abundance
Today marks the last day of July and tomorrow we will dive into the last month of summer. It is hard to believe, but it is true. I am sure you are feeling overwhelmed with the thought of what it means to enter this last month of this beautiful and full season.
Our days are filled more than ever. We are just trying to soak in these last few weeks of this precious season that feels we wait for all year. If there is anything in life that reminds us to live fully and in the present moment it is intentionally being aware and in awe of the seasons. The days pass quickly, fluidly, and sometimes without notice so easily. We find ourselves sitting there watching the sun change in color as it seems summer bleeds into fall and fall into winter and winter into spring and spring into summer. It is a cycle that acts as our constant reminder that nothing in life lasts forever. In fact, if we don’t keep our eyes open wide enough or if we look away for too long, it is gone. So as we enter this final month of summer, we are once again reminded of how precious time really is and the importance of living fully.
That said, we are taking the month of August to focus on the idea of abundance. That fleeting feeling of the season is becoming extremely real and we find ourselves being aware of the need to soak in every last sunset, an evening swim, wander on the beach, and time with those we love in the fading light of summer evenings. Not only are the days full but so are our gardens and the farm markets. The flavors this season are at their peak and we will be enjoying them every possible way we can. This is when we eat too many tomatoes and have overflowing fridges. We gather simply to feed each other out of the abundance of amazing food we have at our finger tips. This is a beautiful and flavorful time of year. So what can we learn from this final month? What can we bring to the rest of the year because of what this month teaches us? Our lives are always full of abundance on some level and so this month I will be sharing how abundance has been something I dealing with in my own life as a mother, creative, and seasonal dweller.

What a season we have had and what better way to close it than to learn from it? It seems summer is a season of the abundance of everything. One that at times can be hard to manage, but what a problem to have. This season I have been learning so much about learning to handle the too much in my life and I cannot wait to share.
