New Year, New You. How many times have we heard that? As we take a moment to reflect on a few improvement goals, those with January birthdays may reap some benefits of the stone which represents their birth month.
Most people I know with December birthdays often resent the proximity of their special day to other holidays. They feel the celebration gets swept up into the other gatherings and plans. Maybe to make up for it, I don't know, you lucky December birthdays get three birthstone options!
The November birthstone is one of the most popular and affordable gemstones. Citrine is relatively plentiful and available in a wide range of sizes and shapes, including very large sizes which make it perfect for a big, bold, statement piece of jewelry.
Emma and me, we are October babes. Oh, and I almost forgot our newest addition to the family, Julie, our American Girl. I am going to assume Julie will have as big a birthday in October as Emma since Emma is insisting Julie needs an American Girl friend, too. Many of you know what I am talking about.
As you know, Pelotonia has been an emotional ride. Pun intended. Fundraising for 2018 has wrapped up and our peloton rode their fundraising hearts out. The following is a message from Ben Hartings, our peloton captain and fellow cancer survivor. Rather than restating, I will share his words. Again, thank you to everyone who contributed and keep those we ride for in your prayers. Consider this an open invitation to join us next year.
