Hey there! How's your summer going so far? We're doing great, and we hope you are too. It's August already! Summertime is halfway over, but there's still plenty of time to enjoy the sunshine. During August, there are plenty of things to celebrate.
Let's kick things off with National Watermelon Day. It's on August 3rd. You can observe the holiday by inviting friends to your home, eating lots of delicious watermelon, and spitting the seeds into an available space in your garden. Maybe next year you'll have your own watermelon patch.
August 15th is National Relaxation Day. If you can manage to get the day off work, spend it kicking back at your house, enjoying doing nothing at all.
August 29th is More Herbs, Less Salt Day, so head out to your backyard garden and harvest some of your favorites to include in a fun new recipe. You probably won't even miss the salt, and your doctor will definitely approve.
And don't forget: Labor Day is just around the corner: time to honor the contributions of workers past - you know, things like the 40-hour workweek, the weekend, paid sick days... the list goes on and on. Honor those hardworking folks with the backyard BBQ to end them all. Wear white if you must, but be careful not to get BBQ sauce on those seersucker shorts of yours.
Oh, and we've also heard that August is a great month to buy a house, and we're here to help out! While you're here... check out all of our recent home sale listings!
