August is a seeker of intensity: intense relationships, intense living, and intense love. Her ability to take the mundane everyday tasks and discover the life gem is a gift that she shares with her words. Struggles that most people choose to keep private, she exposes in a way that is encouraging and sometimes comical.

She shares her home with a hubby, five kiddos, three dogs, a pig, four cows, a turtle, a partridge in a pear tree, and the occasional family or three that she invites in to her home for a meal and conversation. She also excels at running, making guacamole, owning a business, and being BFF to Marti (who totally wrote this).

Want to know something that most people don’t? She hates camping, even though she camps all the time which is crazy since she also loves being outside gawking at clouds, and spending the day on the water. Jumping bugs and mean people aren’t her thing but coffee and shopping definitely are.
