I was listening to The Bobby Bones Show, as I regularly do and Amy mentioned a story about August being a downer month according to some survey conducted in somewhere, America. Apparently the blues are brought on by a mixture of summer break coming to an end, school starting back up and it being a blah month in general because it's mostly a transitional month.
Granted, I don't really have kids and I don't teach so I'm not going back to school, but I sort of feel that way about August - anyone else? The surrounding months all have something to give - June is the middle of summer, July has the 4th, September has Labor Day, and October has Halloween. What does August have? Does it have a holiday that I'm not aware of?
Anyway, I hope it's not been too stressful of an August for you dear readers! I figured I could share a few gifts that could make someone's August a little brighter 😉 for anyone in your life that might need a thoughtful "thinking of you, you're awesome" kind of pick-me-up this month! In all honesty I was going to make this a DIY craft gift post, but someone on Pinterest already thought of Sunshine in a Box... which is super cute, so by all means do that! Or buy a nice candle - people love candles!
