Summer is zipping on by like you would not believe! One moment I was getting ready for my favorite season and the next thing I know the calendar is about to flip to September. YIKES! In fact it has been so busy that I have barely had time to devout some good blog posts for all of you. Don’t worry though, September is coming and that is all about to change.
