My only extended family left, my sweet brother and niece, drove all the way to Oregon from Arizona on June 15 for my daughter Tess' college graduation. The whole week before, I was madly trying to get our house ready and then we went away for a family trip. When we came back, it was back to FT work and coordinating a teacher training/brunch for the summer ministry I'm leading. Then, poor Travis, ran into car trouble and so had to extend their trip. They just went home today! So, I'm four weeks behind! Where did June go?? Well, enough of that.
I'm working my way through emails and updating the sidebar tonight, while my July 4th Baked Beans are, well, baking. I will contact everyone that hasn't checked in so we can wrap up strong. AND draw a winner for our giveaway from Becca.
HUGE thanks to my partner Nerina! I received a most spectacular package - look:
I requested gray and yellow, and she did an amazing job. Everything is just perfect!
