August Wrap-Up

Posted: September 3, 2012 in Monthly Recaps

Don’t give up. Don’t give in. Just push harder.

It is officially one of my two favorite months of the year! (And no, not just because my birthday is in it.) I love Fall—apples, leaves turning, soccer, college football, memories of walking around MSU’s gorgeous campus, the smells, cooler weather…. I just love it!

In order to fully move on to and enjoy September, we gotta wrap up August first!
