Hey, everyone! How are you all?!
Wanted to chat a bit about something that is near and
dear to my heart, and challenge you a little bit.
Do you ever take time to be creative?
If not, why? If so, what is the impact on your mental//
physical// emotional health?
So often people say, “I’m not creative” or “I’m no artist”,
but can make a fabulous dinner for their family from
scratch, can organize anything anywhere, or just help
their little ones understand that each flower is different,
just as people are. Even if one is not *actively* creative
per se, each of us has a unique gift in the form of
I would love to encourage each of you to pursue that! I
love to write— workouts, recipes (even if they are not
perfect!), or ideas. Spend just a few minutes a day
assessing where you may excel creatively. For

cake from a friend, I can pretty much guarantee they
are touched! Not patting myself on the back, but want
to share what a blessing it is not only for yourself to tap
into these gifts, but for others as well.
Fam, it is SO fun to explore different ways to extract
your talents. Don’t limit yourself to the obvious artistic
gifts (though those are great too!) but continue pushing
As we head into fall, this is a *peachy* (see what I did
there-those are in season!) to start a small fresh habit
for yourself! Or several! Stop in at FGS and we will help
you find the ingredients for that pie you wanted to
make, or pot roast or whatever it may be. We love
pouring into our customers, so feel free to ask our
Have a fabulous weekend, friends!
