June is upon us! Welcome to Unconditionally Her as we kick off summer and the month of June.   Seems like just yesterday we had finally kicked winter to the curb and were ushering in the blooms of spring. For at least some of us, we are starting to see those darn cicadas fade away – the 13-year brood Brood XIX and the 17-year Brood XIII which emerged in 17 states (DeLetter, 2024)– will soon be leaving us as we drift into summer.  What an interesting phenomenon, and one that won’t happen again until 2245 with both broods coming in the same year.   I can say for me, I’m ready to send them on their way!  Now it’s time for that daily dose of sunshine, the cool and inviting pool, lazy days on the porch, summer picnics with food and fun, vacays calling our names, and all that is summer.  

Whatever summer brings your way, we hope it includes Unconditionally Her!  We’ve got a busy season planned including this month as we usher in summer. We’re kicking off National Cancer Survivor Month and continuing to celebrate cancer survivors around the world including a podcast you won’t want to miss.    I’m writing a feature on how the ladies can support men’s health as we celebrate Men’s Health week June 10-16 and Father’s Day on June 16th. Boat Bites are back with recipes that will get you in a summer mood, and this month’s Cocktail Hour features the Coconut Lemon Drop. We’ve got a 3-part travel series on spectacular London, England, book club, Cooking with Grammy, and more.

Thank you for joining Unconditionally Her this summer.   Dive right in and enjoy!

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