Memories to Cherish in August

Can you believe it's already August? I don't know about you but feel this year is certainly getting away from me. 
Here is my list of crazy and not so crazy days you can celebrate and treasure in August. I was actually able to find something for every day except the 7th so I say make up your own holiday to treasure on that day. 
My dear friend Evelyn from the blog My Turn (for us)  suggested I put all the dates on a calendar that readers can download and print. I thought it was a great idea. Thanks so much Evelyn. If you would like to print a calendar of the Memories to Treasure for August just click here
