you know, i was planning on doing a big wrap-up post at the end of my beach vacation with the family, but i realized that i will not have time to doing blogging once i get home. why, you ask? because we arrive home on sunday night and on tuesday morning we head to sweden for a month (WOO HOO!) – so, monday will be filled with laundry, organizing, and packing! instead of one big post, i’ve decided that i’llRead More
