June. I’m 21, Strength and Sunshine is 4, and summer is officially upon us. June has always been my favorite month and I’m sad it went by so fast without me being able to fully enjoy it as I’d hoped. I’m really hoping the rest of the summer slows down and I’m already feeling the stress of a new school year starting! There is just so much going on right now it scares me to think that I’ll have to work through probably the most important year of college in just 2 months. I shouldn’t be worry about it right now, but I look ahead, I can’t help it, I’m a realist.
And if you’re wondering (of course you are!), this week’s animal story we had a baby black bear roaming our driveway! He was tagged on his ears, so I’m assuming he’s known, but he popped out right after we had a hail storm on Tuesday. He ended up crossing the street into our neighbors yards and then disappeared from there. Not going to lie, I’m a bit nervous I could get malled by a bear every time I go outside now! #countryliving
Enough of my rambles, you have a Friday Finisher to browse and a 4th of July weekend (4 day weekend, anyone?) to enjoy! This year you have an obligation to make the best classic American potato salad and macaroni salad that everyone can (and will) enjoy! xoxo
SS Posts from the week:
Blog Posts and Links I loved this week:
Life, Mind, Body, Spirit:
The honest truth!
It’s not what most of us are doing.
Remove the toxic from your life!
It’s your own habits too!
A time when you should take the initial feeling seriously.
Easy things you can start now!
Well I have that one down.
This was such a great though-provoking post!
This is what I’m all About!
This is one interesting man!
Wow, that’s interesting and makes sense.
General Mills has their hands in too much. They basically rule the (processed) food system.
I’ve been reading more and more on this…
Food + podcasts = life!
Health, Celiac Disease, & Food Allergies:
This is not good.
Everything you need to know!
Except for us diagnosed celiacs!
That first sentence.
#1 read of the week –> “The idea that we need to detoxify our bodies — we have organs that do it … There’s no evidence that we have these evil toxins in our cells that are making us put on weight, that give us fatigue. But it plays to our intuition in a very powerful way.”
Blogging & Social Media:
Plan for success!
Capture your readers!
Great and easily understandable breakdown.
Design, Tech, & Photography:
Again, you don’t always want to eat the “shot” food!
That’s pretty mind-blowing.
Career, Business, & Success:
Where’s the value?
I’m a bit shocked. It can be productive, but not for everyone.
I just sent my resume sans cover letter this week 😛 Haha!
Such a great episode!
Erik starts a great discussion here.
Great info that you should think of implementing!

These look so good!
I love it! Veggie-based dogs are the best!

A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ I’m so sad to see June go already, but I’m glad it’s finally “summer” (weather wise)!
So tell me:
