Happy July by amanda

Fireworks, birthdays, independence, summer and life – those are just a few things that July means to me.  Independence Day is a great celebration.  I spent the day with my fellow office mates working.  Here at Living Light we tend to have class on the holiday, but I have great co-workers so it makes it do-able.  And no fireworks for me this year as I will be out of town this weekend helping at the Breast Cancer Walk.  FortBragg always has its fireworks display on the first Saturday of July because we have the most visitors that weekend for The Worlds Largest Salmon Barbeque.  In my 32 years of living in Fort Bragg I have yet to attend, but I know that it is a well attended event and a busy weekend in town.

My birthday falls right in the middle of the month, not fun when you’re a school age child by the way, but now I love it.  It opens up lots of time for me to do things to celebrate my happy day.  This year I am turning 33, a super fantastic number so it should be a great year.  My mom just celebrated 70 revolutions around the sun.  I am so honored to have been part of her celebration and I know she has many more to come.

codySummer and life sum up the rest of my July. My son plays baseball and was selected onto the 11 & 12 year old All-Star team.  What that means is lots of driving and lots of time, but I love watching and am glad to cheer them on.  Life continues in the simple fact that it is summer vacation for the kiddos and that means finding them places to go.  I love the summer but it goes by so fast!

Speaking of cheering on, this week is demo week for our Associate Chef and Instructor students.  It is always a pleasure to see them prepare for them and see the satisfaction on their faces when they complete them.  They are preparing themselves to go out in the world and share their knowledge and love of raw food.  We still have two more opportunities to complete the Associate Chef certification so why not make plans now?  Enjoy your summer and hopefully we will see you in the fall!  tip
