Self-Improvement Month

September is Self-Improvement month and I think it is the perfect time for it! If you’re a parent, the kids are back in school and the craziness of summer is finally over. It’s also early enough that the obligations that come with the holiday season haven’t started yet. It gives us a perfect opportunity to reflect and take time to focus on ourselves.

Staying Cool In The Heat

Here in the Pacific Northwest we are experiencing an unusually hot summer. Temperatures around 115 degrees Fahrenheit have never before been seen in Oregon and Washington until now.

It’s important to do anything you can to stay cool during these sweltering days. You have come to the right place!
