Hello, June!

Seriously, guys... I can't believe it's June 1st!! 

Is this real life? What the hell happened these last five months? 

Honestly, I don't even know. 

All I know is I feel pretty good with how things are going around here!

I wanted to first say "Welcome!" to my new readers over the last month! I've enjoyed reading everyone's comments and getting to know you more!

One of the things I love about blogging is this supportive, caring, giving, community. You guys have offered me advice that has helped me grow up and learn how to figure out life on this crazy journey of mine. I'm not sure I would be where I am without that support.

I talk about you guys all. the. time. to my friends and family, and sometimes I can't shut up about it. I can't help it- I'm constantly inspired by your posts and end up bursting with creative energy and ideas!

I actually gave my first non-verbatim speech in class last week on the topic of blogging. I was so comfortable with the topic I barley had to glance at my notes.



I'm making progress, people!!

Anyway, before I go off on a tangent, I wanted to post your monthly freebie! 

June is a special month to me. It's the month I celebrate my birthday (the big 2-5!), the weather is just perfect for lounging outside, and it also reminds me I'm graduating in just 40 days! (WHOA!)

When I was designing this month's calendar, I thought about getting older and gaining knowledge, but still keeping your imagination alive. I was inspired by a quote and came up with something completely different- I hope it inspires you to get outside, sketch, photograph, run, dance, play... whatever suits your fancy!

Just click on the image to make it big, right click, and Save As your desktop background. It was done with a higher resolution this time (1600x1000), so it should be able to fit most computer monitors. Let me know if you need a different size!

Remember it's totally free for personal use! 
That means you're not allowed sell, copy, or distribute it.

After you're done with that, make sure to check out my new sponsors this month! I'm so excited to introduce you during the next few weeks... but don't let me hold up your blog exploration. Feel free to click around and get a head start :)

Here's to a beautiful June!
