Well, I have been away from blogging and regular life for the month of July. How wonderful! It was relaxing and time was spent with my awesome family and beloved friends. I took about a million pictures, but something really special happened in the month of July. My sister and my nephew came to visit, we had not seen them in nine years!! Last time we saw them we were in Portugal visiting them and my beautiful nephew was only two! Whoa how time flies. I was so grateful to spend time with them, even though it wasn’t nearly long enough!


 Bursting with gratitude for:
