Beautiful Life

Make time to reflect on all that makes your life and the world beautiful. Surround yourself with art, family, or friends, and celebrate National Making Life Beautiful Day on June 11.

A Pearl of Wisdom

There are three birthstones for the month of June: alexandrite, moonstone and pearl. Traditionally, the pearl is the most favored of the three, with its creamy white color and iridescent shimmer. Pearls are the only gemstone to come from a living creature rather than the Earth's crust, and less than 1 in 10,000 wild oysters contain the jewel, making natural pearls one of the rarest gemstones in the world.

A Flip-Flop Summer

Flip-flops, sandals, thongs - whatever you call this breathable shoe, it's time to get casual and break them out for the summer!

Summer's Bounty

June has arrived, which means summer gardens are beginning to produce their bounty! This month is an ideal time to visit farmers' markets and check out seasonal displays at grocery stores for fresh selections of fruits and veggies.
