  1. I was reading this, thinking (for whatever reason) it was a monthly wrap-up and was feeling much better about my June... alas, it was not so. :) Can't wait to hear your thoughts on Summer House

    1. I just started it last night and I admit I'm having some trouble getting into it! I think the scienc-y space-y stuff is holding me back a wee bit, but I have high hopes :D

  5. I know some people don't like gifs, but I have to say that I like them. Especially when you use them. Random thought. Carry on with your day. :)
