July snapshot.

As many are getting ready to take an August Break, I'm getting myself back on track.
Here's a bit about July and what's been going in on my world. July long weekend is our kick off for summer fun and, my word, we've been living it up.
  • We started with a road trip including Canada Day celebrations with fireworks.
  • There was a miraculous find by my son who spotted and saved a baby bird - that's a post all on its own.
  • I've been hauling hard at the books in dark hours of night to wrap up my current course.
  • I've been helping with wedding planning - more on that next month.
  • I braved a family photo shoot for an acquaintance, something simple and sweet
  • A mini kitchen renovation if that's even possible to say together
  • I read a book for pleasure! The Night Circus proved to be so much more than anything I could have asked for. I'm still captivated by the story.
What does your July snapshot look like?
