August Monthly News

   Welcome to the August edition of monthly news! August 2nd was my 13th Blogoversary! I didn't celebrate though, I'm not feeling very celebratory when it comes to my blog lately. I haven't put into it what I used to and I wonder if some of you are still out there..... I try to review and share as much as I can, but life gets in the way. Maybe next year will be more fun.

We went to Toronto to visit with her the day before. We had drinks and met some of her friends. We hung out in a park that overlooked the city.... so beautiful. Check it out....
