If You and I Had Coffee | vol 38

Join me for a conversation over coffee? #coffeedates

If you and I had coffee...

We'd meet up at this little cafe that has the best chai tea lattes around. We'd take our drink orders out to the wrought iron patio tables nestled under stone-colored umbrellas because it is gorgeous outside today. We are finally beginning to transition from the long humid days to a more enjoyable climate, and the warm breeze is too good to pass up.

What I Read | July

A look back at what I read last month. #ASGbookshelf #whatIread

It was bound to happen. I've had so many good book months this year, it was only a matter of time before that record would come crashing down and I'd get a whole month of stinkers. I can't say they were all bad. I did find one of my new favorite middle-grade authors and an awesome book of poetry that was so relatable, I screenshot so many pages and sent them to a friend I knew would feel them as deeply as I did.

Monthly Reflections | July

Wrapping up the month and sharing what I've been up to in life and on the blog. What is your favorite moment of July? #currently

When you witness compassion through the eyes of a child, it can leave you at a loss for words. My niece, who is terrified of all insects, overheard me telling my nephew that I rescued five bugs from drowning in the swimming pool one day. Later that afternoon, I watched as she silently picked up the leaf skimmer and immediately dove in to rescue a bumblebee who had landed in the middle of the pool. A little after that, one of our resident eastern tiger swallowtails landed on its back in the water. She rescued him too, gently placing him on the deck railing in the shade where he could dry off and recover.
