I published my first book, “Elevate the Everyday” on July 6, 2020—exactly two years ago today! 🥳🎂
In May of 2020 @fionaferrisnz released “The Chic Author”, which set me off on my self-publishing journey. I devoured her book in one sitting, and by the next day I had written my first chapter. I’m not exaggerating when I say it’s probably the most life-changing book I’ve ever read. If becoming an author is one of your dreams, read Fiona’s book!
One of my favorite chapters from “Elevate the Everyday” is #9, “Get Your Daily Dose of Leafy Greens.” By leafy greens I’m referring to trees, and not spinach and kale (although a daily dose of these nutritional varieties is on my list as well.)
Getting outdoors is easy when you have dogs, because they are always begging for a walk. Even though I’m on high tick alert (yuck), I love the forest in the summer. The cool shade of the trees is so refreshing. We have a little trail that runs through our land, which is great for Coco and Junior as they love to run free. To add a bit of whimsy, I’ve been hiding little treasures along the path, such as these little elves. Yes, they have a certain tackiness to them, but they make me smile each time I come across them on my walk. This guy reminds me of the gnome that travelled the world in “Amélie”, don’t you think?
I’m hearing of so many people experiencing extreme heat. Are you able to get outdoors to walk this time of year or is it just too hot?!
