august is my favorite month because it is so summer-y and hot. i like it hot...and my birthday is in august. i was born on the cusp, so i am a leo/virgo. the mister is a leo, also born this month. the sturgis motorcycle rally is held the first week of august... the perseid meteor shower hits it's peak during the middle week...it is also national goat cheese month. august's birthstone is the peridot, so i made a couple of peridot pieces and loaded them to my herban elements etsy shop today.
