Birthstone of the Month - September

Sapphire

Sapphires have been popular for ages. Part of it's popularity is due to beautiful color. Sapphires are most often found in a deep blue color but can come in other colors, like pink, yellow, or white.

It is also a popular stone because of it's strength. It is a 9 on the Mohs hardness scale, which is only one below a diamond, so it's a resilient stone that is easy to take care of. 

Lapis

Lapis is another gemstone that is used as a birthstone for September. Often Lapis have gold veins or flecks in the blue color. Most often they are found in Afghanistan and ancient Greeks and Romans highly valued Lapis stones because of the beautiful color.

Either of the stones for September are memorable choices. They bring such beautiful, rich color to whatever they are paired with. I love the pink sapphires and the gold that is in the Lapis. Do you have a preference?

You Can Do Hard Things!


hard but do it

Life is hard sometimes. There isn't much too it other than that. Sometimes you are asked to do hard things, other times hard things seem just thrown at you without warning. It's tough and uncomfortable but there is an upside, it is, that you can handle it.

I don't know about you guys but sometimes it seems like the hard won't stop coming, and I've come to the conclusion that it probably won't. It will just keep throwing itself at me. It's the time of year that comes with a lot of change, scary change for some.

If it helps, know that somebody believes in you. I believe in you. This guy believes in you too.



Now what you need is to believe in yourself. Here's a reminder if you need.
