EauMG’s July 2016 Favorites

Jersey Shore

 

In comparison to June 2016, July was a less busy month; it’s the height of “lazy summertime”. I started feeling better and there was no traveling. It was a lazy month but that’s what I wanted. No regrets.

EauMG’s Answer: I’m very diligent with sun protection. In fact, so much so, that my doctor said that I had “the worst vitamin D deficiency she’s ever seen” which I took as a compliment that I’m doing this sun protection thing right. For me, it’s all
