And… it’s July. How did that happen?

June was a great month and so far July is off to a great start. Despite the insane Dallas heat, I love summer. Long days, trips to the drive-through snow cone shack down the street, barbecues with friends – it doesn’t get much better. Last month, I made a couple of fun purchases, namely a maxi dress for my cousin’s wedding last weekend and my upcoming 30th birthday (!), a new swimsuit, a mod dress and a pair of fabulous sandals. I love everything and am super grateful to my sweet husband who forwent his discretionary shopping money for June so that my new maxi dress fit in the budget. He’s the best.
