With all the transitioning and changes happening in life for me right now, I am even more looking forward to fall coming on in. It brings on that feeling of coziness as the weather cools, and I’m definitely in the mood for feeling cozy and homey. It’s already starting…I haven’t had to turn the air conditioner on once this week! With my kiddo starting school, August felt like an actual closing for the first time, with a chapter in my life ending along with the summer season. And it was such a wonderful month, filled with trips, family, and fun. So without further ado, my August favorites!
#1. Mental & emotional balance + relationship positivity. This month was filled with a lot of anxiety-inducing situations and I’m proud to say I feel like I’ve kept it all in balance without letting anxiety take over and run the show. As for my relationship, it is on the positive. Things are moving in a good direction. But rebuilding trust is no easy task at all.
#2. Cirque Du Soleil: OVO! We surprised my mum (we being my little family and my brother) with tickets to Cirque for her birthday and it was incredible show! She had never been, and I’m so glad I got to give her that experience. Bonus: We had no idea the show was themed around insects, which was SO perfect for my little bug loving daughter!
#3. Family trip to Boston! As I mention in the trip post, spending the weekend in Boston with my brother was amazing, and I want to do it again in the future for sure.
#4. New fresh garden veggies. This month all the tomatoes are ripening (I’ve got loads!) and all my carrots have been harvested. YUM!
#5. The Fake Goth Girls Slack channel. If you listen to FGG, I highly recommend getting in on the Slack channel. It’s filled with amazing people who provide laughs, support, and creative inspiration. Loving it!
#6. Our new PS4! My partner and I have been discussing getting one for over a year, and with the release of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, we took the plunge. I am now (unsurprisingly) in love with that game, and let’s not talk about my probably unhealthy attraction to Adam Jensen. I sense fanart in my future.
