Local grocery stores usually have a great selection of peaches, as long as you can get the good ones before everyone else. Peaches are a delicious and refreshing fruit to partake of during the summer. Whether you’re drinking a peach smoothie or having some peach cobbler after a delicious meal, peaches are a great ingredient for summer recipes! Celebrate National Peach Month before the month is through.  

National Eye Exam Month


How do you plan to celebrate National Eye Exam Month? We suggest visiting your local optometrist for an eye exam if you haven’t gotten one in a while. Eye care is important for all aspects of life, like driving and reading! Getting your eyes checked and corrected can improve your quality of life, even with glasses. If you’re worried about looking dorky in glasses, don’t. There are many types of spectacles available, and even contacts if you don’t wish to wear glasses. Get your eyes checked today!  

Upcoming Holidays

National S'mores Day


How will you celebrate National S'mores Day (August 10th) this year? S’mores are a great treat to have around a fire with friends and are the highlight of many children’s summer evenings while camping! Check out Delish’s list of over 80 recipes for making S’mores!  

National Dog Day

How will you be celebrating National Dog Day this year? We suggest pampering your dog by taking them to The Canine Scrub to get cleaned up and well groomed or give them a bath yourself. Your dog is more than a pet, they’re family and should be treated as such. If you’re the type who’s good with baking, you can consider making some homemade treats for your dog!
