Happy Sunday bookworms!

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend.  We had a low key weekend, which is much appreciated as our next two weeks are going to be a little hectic with house guests & leaving for vacation.  I honestly cannot believe we are now in the last week of June!  Why must the summer fly by, while the winter drags on forever?

Happy Sunday bookworms!

To those of you in the U.S, happy Father’s Day!  Hopefully everyone was able to celebrate with the important father(s) (and/or father figures) in their lives.  For those of you who are missing their fathers/father figures for one reason or another, I hope you find comfort today.

Happy Sunday bookworms!

Well I’m happy to report that I am back after a little hiatus around the blogosphere for the past 2 weeks.   After only being home one day this week after going out of town for my son’s football camp, then for a long weekend trip with my husband’s side of the family, I am ready to get back into the swing of things around here…
