Happy Weekend!!

I’m in a book club, and we have the best group of ladies ever!! This last month we wanted to meet and do more than just discuss a book. We wanted to include food, fun, and a little bit of DIY!!

This month I didn’t do as well, but I did spend the first few days of it on vacation and had family in town for a week. I’m excited for July – each month and each week is a fresh start!!
