Enjoy August with a Pretty Free Printable!
“Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August.”
~ Jenny Han, The Summer I Turned Pretty
August is Here!
Hello first day of August! August is the hot summer month where there’s now more summer behind than in front of us. I try to stay in the moment and not feel a little melancholy about that. We’re now in the stretch of summer, where the season feels as if it’s been here a good long while. It’s hot and green and sunny. And hot. Watermelon, ice cream, swimming and drive-in movies are all part of this wonderful month, as are vacations. Did I mention it’s hot?
Vacations and August go together
I’m sure I’m no different than anyone else when I say vacations are one of my favorite things. Even a weekend getaway is something I look forward to, and as soon as I’m home I start thinking of where my next trip will take me. Mountain destinations are the perfect trips for August, but I wouldn’t want to leave out the beach. Sand and water are a great way to enjoy this fun summer month.
August is for the vegetable gardener.
I also enjoy the garden in August. While those that have planted early have been harvesting for a while now, August is the month when the garden really starts to produce. Everything is ripening, fresh fruit and vegetables are all in season now. Whether its cucumbers or zucchini, tomatoes or peppers, it’s all ready to eat. The Farmers’ Markets and roadside stands are bursting with fresh produce. It really is a season of abundance.
Let’s enjoy these August summer days with a free printable!
I love searching for quotes to go with the posts for my printables each month. There are a lot of quotes to pick from for May and June. September and October are also favorites for writers and poets. But August? Not so much. One common quote that kept popping up is about August being the Sunday of Summer, but I I shied away from that one. I guess you can look at it that way, but I’m always in denial about this beautiful season leaving us. I don’t want to talk about summer being over so let’s just pretend it will always be summer, OK?
For my printable this month, I wanted art that showed the full bloom of summer and had some heat of it’s own. I think these pretty hibiscus fill the bill. The art is by Beauty Drops and is available at Hungryjpeg.com. Here’s where to go if you love it as much as I do. (Not an affiliate link, just a source if you’re an art junkie like me 🙂 )
And if you’re an Instagram Chatbooks fan, here is one I’ve created especially sized to add to your August feed! I hope you enjoy!
