The long hot days of August, it is a time of year, where the order of the day is to relax, unwind and stroll down the gentle path. The steamy day’s and sultry night’s command a muted pace, one that softly summons us to slow down, take notice, and indeed, stop to smell the roses.
Although we look forward to the planning and adventure of our summer vacations, home is where we will spend much of our summer and the one place that we will find our real comfort. We spend precious moments embracing life and quieting our minds on our front and back porches, a sacred place where meaningful conversations begin, dining al fresco commences and good books are read. It is where we love what is.
We seek balance and quench our skin’s thirst as we seek out beautiful, light cold-pressed oils and luscious organic hydrosols amongst the crowd of creams and heavy lotions.
Less is more, evokes significance and truth. Soft summer clothing drapes us, long hair is up in a simple twist, little make-up is applied and a light garden harvest fills up our plates and satisfies our tastes.
With all this beauty some of us are already longing for autumn, cooler temperatures and a change in scenery.
Summer, especially August intends for us to live a simple laid-back lifestyle. Enjoy it while it lasts, soon enough, vacations will be sweet memories, school will be back in session and the warp speed of our daily lives shall once again reign the days and nights.
