With summer in full swing, it's prime play time. I don’t know about you, but I drain every drop of fun in the sun out of this all-too-short season.
As usual in June and July, I will be running around Italy at work and play for most of this glorious month, exploring various sights and treasures of this gorgeous country, hosting a group in Tuscany and then chill-axing with friends on the Amalfi Coast before returning to reality for the month of August.
With summer at its peak, we enjoy so much. The warm sunny days nourish our farms to produce an abundance of food that can only be described as luscious. Succulent vegetables and fruit provide us the nutrients we need and desire to be our very best during this active season.
Mother Nature cradles us in her lush gardens, giving us her very best display of her love and affection for us, the tender beings that take gently from her bounty…and hopefully give back to her in gratitude by replenishing what we take and not wasting the abundance she provides.
This summer, commit to joyful wellness in your life. Take steps to make each day a step toward being the best you. Hit the gym; play outside; get fit…and cook…cook…cook. Take from the bounty our planet provides and prepare meals that nourish, cool and satisfy. Keep it simple, light and fresh.
And share with us. You know I’ll be sharing my adventures in Italy and Spain on Instagram (and Facebook and Twitter), so join me there and follow along (and one day, plan to travel with me). I know I am always saying to put your devices down now and then; look up and enjoy nature. But I love seeing what you're up to, so every now and then, grab your device and post some pics, recipes and fun things you’re doing. I love hearing from you and seeing what you’re up to as you live beautiful, healthy lives.
