Summer Lovin’

You guys. I missed this space. We’ve been busy (but not any more than the rest of you!) doing summery things and I just haven’t made this enough of a priority.

Simple Summer Activities

Linking up with Hallie – be sure to visit and see everyone else’s favorites of the week!

Also, I feel morally obligated to share that Sunday, July 17th, is National Ice Cream Day. You know, in case you’re like me and need another reason (as if the triple-digit heat index weren’t enough) to indulge your sweet tooth at your closest Dairy Queen. Happy celebrating!
