June Wrap Up

I'm loving this hot weather we are having in Wisconsin.  It's perfect for sitting outside after work, sipping ice tea and reading.  It always makes me sad in winter when I leave for work in the dark and return home from work in the dark, so I'm trying to soak up the sun as much as I can.  I'm extremely excited for the 4th of July and all the fireworks!  I absolutely adore fireworks and try to see as many displays as I can over the summer.  In Milwaukee, the 4th of July also means Summerfest, which is the world's largest music festival.  So I'll be sure to head over there a couple of times to relax by the lake and listen to some great music.

  1. I loved Eat, Pray, Love. The movie and the book were both incredible. It made me want to get a suitcase and fill it up with travel magazines. ;)

  2. Personally the heat is a bit too much for me. I love warm weather but the weather where I live is almost unbearable! You read some great books this month Lisa! :)


I love love love hearing your wonderful thoughts! Thanks for stopping by and happy reading.
