Where the Summer Fun Begins

August was a month of summer fun! Summer is my favorite season, and this month I got to do some of my favorite things.

I traveled to Jamaica to celebrate a friend’s birthday. It’s one of my favorite countries to visit because it has a laid-back vibe and amazing food. Jamaican people are so cool and calm. When you’re with them, everything is alright. I love that vibe and the encouragement to slow down and stay present in the moment.

I found a love for the beach I didn’t know I had. I loved being in the water and floating along the waves. There was something so calming about being in the water. My worries and cares felt so far away. I look forward to going back to Jamaica soon.

After the trip, I went to see Oppenheimer in theaters. The movie was good, but I do wish I spent more time learning about Oppenheimer before seeing the film. I did a lot of research afterward to learn more about his story. I also caught the Bald Brothers Tour with a friend to catch up and share some laughs.

This year has definitely had some ups and downs. But it was nice to have a month of fun experiences to share with friends. I’m grateful to God for the gift of joy and to share it with loved ones. I’ll always look forward to some summer fun and all it has to offer.
