Round-up: June 2016



“All June I bound the rose in sheaves.  Now, rose by rose, I strip the leaves.”  — Robert Browning

This month has been so wonderful!  The days slipped by quickly and I wanted them to, because I was looking so forward to my two-year wedding anniversary at the end of the month!  It was a really special day, and the perfect way to end June.

As is my tradition, here is the list of what I had planned for June (some of which I didn’t do):

  1. Take a family beach trip.  It was SO fun.  Our baby’s and fur babies‘ first beach trip ever!
  2. Write a guest post on someone’s blog.
  3. Teach baby to say Dada.  She is trying, but I think teeth will help her perfect the ‘d’ sound.
  4. Buy the Twilight novels.  I even bought them in limited edition white.  #nostops
  5. Edit my book. Ooops.
  6. Catch up on my baby diary.  I definitely didn’t completely catch up, but I worked on it!
  7. Get a Twitter account.
  8. Take baby swimming.  She is my little fish now!
  9. Celebrate our 2nd Wedding Anniversary. <3 two years <3
  10. Learn to make Pico de Gallo. Lots of chopping.  But lots of chips later.  🙂

The highlight of my month was definitely our wedding anniversary! <3 But we also had some really fun times throughout the month, especially on our beach trip to Topsail!  The dogs were non-stop energy, but that is what happens when you take two labrador retrievers to the beach.  A few fun hauls from this month are also coming to mind–especially “pre-beach” hauls like sun hats, kimonos, and beach tents.  You know, the essentials.  🙂  I also got my last “big” trim for my hair (a whole inch) so now my hair is even, thickened, and damage-free; and I can just get the ends dusted every 10 weeks.  So happy about that!  Last but not least, I got a few things ironed out “behind-the-scenes” for my blog, and that’s always a good thing.

Thanks for stopping by to read my monthly summary.  I hope your June was fabulous too!  Cheers to a sparkly July!!
