Heart-Shaped Glasses August Mash Up

IMG145Can you believe that August is almost over? I know I can’t. While my favorite season is just around the corner, I still always feel sad when those last days of summer roll around and the kids had back to school.

We hope you enjoyed the August blog theme of “travel and settings” – I know we all did. And for those of us who weren’t able to vacation this summer, I felt as if I traveled the world this month with all of you.

As you sit back and enjoy the last days of the month, we’ve got a few sites and articles we’d like to share.
