I can’t believe it already July 4th! The month of June seemed to fly by and I am not sure I was always as fully present as I would have liked.
We came back from Europe on May 31st. We had less than a week to recover before we moved into Road Trip planning mode. We drove to Montana on 6/14 and I was gone for 12 days. I came back and spent last week at doctor appointments and working.
I was chatting with my husband yesterday and we agree that June was kind of a blur.
As I get older, it becomes even more important to me to LIVE and be present for every moment, because I know that more moments are not guaranteed.
Here is an article from 2018 that talks about taking time to savor life.

Mr. Hawk has some familiar tips for habits that help life slow down, such as:
- Be more mindful
- Feel and show gratitude
- Remember, your actions matter
- Stay inspired
I had a wonderful time in Montana, which may explain why June flew by at breakneck speed. I was able to spend some amazing time with family and friends, enjoying an early summer together. Time really does fly when you are having fun!
