Summer and an Update

I cannot believe it’s almost July. Don’t ask me where this year is going. I’m still searching for my bobby pins. As I breeze into the hot St. Louis humidity, I set out on a mom mission to find fun craft ideas that were indoor friendly on hot days. That lasted for about 10 minutes.

In my attempt to continue to hang on and celebrate and give thanks to those around me, I decided to host...

Vacation All I Ever Wanted …
