“Friends, sun, sand, and sea, that sounds like summer to me.” Unknown

 

June is here and so is summer!  Welcome to Unconditionally Her as we kick off summer and the month of June.   What’s on YOUR agenda? Vacations, lounging at the pool, cool drinks and good books, ice cream trucks (June 2nd is National Rocky Road Ice Cream Day and June 7th is National Chocolate Ice Cream Day!), watermelon, bare feet, cranking up the A/C, and maybe even “all of the above?”  Whatever it is, we hope you will stick with us as we celebrate the beginning of summer and the month of June.  If you’re into music – and with a Nashville native as your editor, you know I’m going to bring up music – Rolling Stone magazine put out a great list of “greatest summer songs” last year,  perfect for making your own  summer play listand  worthy of checking out!

 

We’ve got a lot going on during a season that’s screams lazy days and kicking back.   Mexican Street Corn and Zuchinni and Spinach Gratin kick off the recipes this month – with others also to come – and the Hibiscus Cosmos as the Sip of the Month.  We wrap up our nine-part A Time to Bloom coaching series, sharing more about spirit and soul, and how it factors into our health and well-being. Summer is a perfect time to reflect and become self-aware of what makes us tick.  We’re also kicking off National Cancer Survivor Month AND celebrating the magazine’s 10-year anniversary by featuring several podcasts from courageous cancer survivors who were part of our earlier Stories from the Stage.   Summer may be slower paced, but we’re full speed ahead and can’t wait to share our summer with our readers.  

 

Thank you, dear readers, for jumping into summer with Unconditionally Her. Turn up the A/C, grab a pitcher of iced tea or lemonade, and welcome the season of sun and fun!

 

Be Encouraged, Be Empowered, Be Inspired – Be Unconditionally YOU!
