Alden’s Organic Salted Caramel Ice Cream. It’s delicious, but I didn’t quite taste the salted part. Still delish. It also didn’t get rock hard in the freezer.
This blog turned 4 years old! I did a Book Haul video on YouTube and a bookish giveaway. I’m mostly celebrating another year that I didn’t give up. It’s so easy to, and there are times when this space gets quiet while IRL is chaotic. There’s a lot of extending grace to myself.
Books I Read:
The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

What am I looking forward to in September?
- TRAVEL! I’m heading to Nashville for business and pleasure.
- Kids graduation. It just kept getting rescheduled, but we’re finally doing it.
- Movie Night & DVD Drive. It will be our first time doing this. The DVDs are going to Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford. We’re excited.
- Writing. I’m on a no-more-extension deadline!
- Temperature going down. I hope. It hit 106 degrees F today and expected to go higher over the weekend.
