July is officially over and we've reached the final leg of summer. August is here and I don't know about you but I can't decide if that's a good thing or not. It feels like we've barely had a summer yet because of all the crappy weather we've been getting so the fact that this is the last month of summer is kind of shocking.
I'm not a weather person so I can't say with certainty that August is going to bring us better weather, but I have a good feeling that we're in store for some sun! I mean, we deserve it right?
Luckily this weekend is packed with super fun activities, events, and festivals that you absolutely shouldn't miss!
