We work harder than ever to promote and protect our health, often forgetting that do-nothing time is just as important for our health. There’s nothing like a beautiful Siesta Beach sunset to help us stop and simply appreciate the moment. This month we’ll appreciate a Siesta sunset together.
Please bring your own beverage and if you like, a healthy appetizer to share. When you RSVP, I will send specific details about our location, as you will need an access code to attend.
