AUGUST SUMMER EVENT GUIDE

AUGUST SUMMER EVENT GUIDE We are in the midst of the "dog days' of Summer"! The skies are blue, the rain has taken a hiatus and it is HOT, HOT HOT! If you are anything like me, you start to get a little antsy this time of year knowing that summer is wrapping up. You only have a few more weeks to get out there and enjoy the summer weather. To get my own excitement and anxiety under control, I started making a list of all the events that I want to attend during the month of August. Once it was complete, I thought that this might be something that others would want to see, so I decided to share it! Hooray!! I encourage you to beat the heat and get out and explore your town, city or state! Don't forget to stay hydrated, apply sunscreen and TAKE PICTURES!
