August Monthly News

Welcome to the August edition of monthly news!
It's bittersweet, this month. Last month of summer, but yay to the kids going back to school!
Did you do anything this summer you care to share, comment and tell us.

  2. Sounds like you had a great month as far as reading goes. I finished the Foodies challenge too. I loved that one.

    I didn't have a very exciting summer, but I'm looking forward to the Fall.

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
