Happy August, friends! I know it’s hot-hot-hot lately, at least here in Indiana. In fact, J and I spent a couple of the most miserable early days of the summer dealing with an air conditioner that couldn’t decide if it wanted to keep us cool or not. Fortunately, it’s since been fixed – because it’s sweltering out there!
I must admit, I will never tire of updates about Britain’s Royal Family. In the past week alone, the Queen celebrated her 90th birthday, Prince George hung out with the Obamas, Will, Kate, and Harry announced the launch of their Heads Together campaign – an effort to end the stigma around mental health, a young lad endorsed Harry for King. A week before, we got little peaks into the royal tour of India and Bhutan, and just today, the most wonderful video featuring Queen Elizabeth and Harry is making waves on social media.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day, friends! I’ve always loved this holiday, for many reasons. As a child, I looked forward to it so much because it always signaled the start of warmer weather and sunnier days ahead. And, while digging out all of the green clothes to wear in layers at school and making green goodies in the kitchen with my mom was always a fun time, I became curious early on (I was a rather studious, bookworm of a kiddo), as to what not only St. Patrick’s Day was all about, but what Ireland was like, too.
Iceland has recently become quite the popular travel destination, and for good reason. Just look at how gorgeous it is! As an added bonus, it’s considered to be a rather budget-friendly trip.
