My goodness! Is it June already? Where did the first half of the year go? This weekend has been a flurry of activity at our house (hence the later-than-usual-book-buzz-post) as we’re preparing to leave for our trip to Melbourne on Tuesday (an 11-12 hour drive that we will be doing over two days!) We’ll be catching up with friends and family, viewing some original Van Gogh paintings, and I might even be catching up with one or two people you know . . . 😉 But for now, here’s a recap of what’s happened on the blog this week:
