It’s August!

Aug 1st
Each month I do a special post showing what is coming up for the monthly and the weekly celebrations.  I do the daily celebrations each day.  I tried doing all of them in depth, but it just became very overwhelming, not only for me to research and write about them, but for all of you to read them.  If a specific day’s holiday isn’t hitting your happy place, just check back here to find something to celebrate instead!  I highlight food celebrations in pink. . . . not sure why.  I love food, so I figure I’ll draw special attention to them.  They are the easiest to celebrate, and the ones that more of us have in common than the rest of them.  I hope find lots of fun things that you can enjoy each day.
