The Month in Review - July 2013

So long, July, I'll miss you.  You brought us warmth (sometimes a little too much but I still prefer it to winter), long summer weekends away, an online bake sale to benefit a sweet abused doggie and my birthday.  What's not to love about a month like that?!  Not to mention that we started the month off with a s'mores martini.  A s'mores martini, people!!  But, as great a month as July is, I love August more...less humid, big vacation plans...but I tried hard to not rush ahead and enjoy every precious summer day.
