Why do I write?
Because this is my own little kingdom, and this is what it's like here for me to write here:
"You are kings and queens, I tell them, and every day you establish your kingdom.
I hope it is a good and a peaceable one,
I hope it is a stronghold to you and a place of refuge for others.
I hope you reign long, and well. I hope you rule with a sense of wonder, an abiding joy, and the unyielding banner of kindness."
What do I write about?
I am a finance guru who meditates, loves God, loves fitness and nutrition, and adores my husband and baby. So those are the topics I write about, generally.
I like to be humorous and a bit of a storyteller. And often, I get really contemplative. And coercing people into listening to my introspective journeys isn't nearly as effective as just posting them on the wide-open internet.
So for those reasons, I'm not certain why you're reading here. But I hope it helps - helps with something. As a matter of fact, if this blog ever cures you of anything, let me know. But if this blog makes it worse, well, I don't want to know. ;) Kidding.
And why Take June?
Because it's like "take two." Which is a good thing to say to yourself when life doesn't go quite as planned. And I would prefer not to take life too seriously. There's no reason to be hard on myself for attempting to fold a freshly-cleaned fitted sheet and then settling for a sheet wad ball. So I just wake up, hit refresh, and say, "Take Two," and life feels a lot easier that way.
Except... I feel like the phrase "Take Two" is reserved for the prophet Noah...
Well, I absolutely love the start of summer! The world in full cheery bloom. A season of happy eagerness and energy stores being thawed out. The feel of the sun - brightly raw and warm.
So, Take June it is.
