Summer is in full swing here in North Carolina! The sun is shining and everywhere I look, the world is in full bloom.
There are so many wonderful things to see and do during the summer months, but one of my favorite warm weather pastimes has always been finding a quiet spot in the shade and diving into a great book.
While I love a good novel, I also see my summertime reading sessions as a nice time to learn something new that I can share with you! With this in mind, I picked five of my favorite Circle & Bloom blog posts for your “summer reading.”
These blog posts provide insights and inspiration for every step of your conception journey and provide you with the tools you need to embrace and nurture your mind + body connection. I hope that you enjoy this summer reading and are able to incorporate these teachings into your daily life all year long!
