A cup of tea and a cool little sitting place is one of the only things that brings me peace of mind in the triple digits of Arizona heat. Not to mention a few crafty projects and I'm happy as a bee and a bundle of flowers.
Enjoy the long sunny days and the cool starry nights. Go to a music festival or take a long-needed vacation to somewhere you've never been and relax!
What gets you energized this summer?

Happy August, everyone!
I recently returned from a 2-week trip to Pittsburgh. Besides touring beautiful colleges like University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon and dining at amazing restaurants, I got to spend the majority of my time in a program called HOPE Youth Corps with 21 other kids my age serving a small community called Wilkinsburg.
Wilkinsburg is a low-income community, the majority made up of African-Americans, where much gang violence occurs and other terrifying crimes. Volunteering at the local Boys & Girls club, the Police Youth Academy, and the South Avenue Baptist church, opened our eyes to young kids who have gone through--and continue to--go through heart-breaking situations within their families and neighborhood. We knitted close bonds with the kids there and were able to teach them the importance of being a good citizen in their community.
While many people believe that they need to travel out of the country to give to those who have great need, there is much need here in the United States and in YOUR community. Why do you have to buy a plane ticket to help?
I encourage you to check out your local Salvation Army or soup kitchen and start giving to those who need it. There are so many kids and people who need help now, so make a difference and start today!
