POTD: The Best September Had to Offer

September saw the end of summer (big sigh), the start of school (bigger sigh) and the beginning of cold weather (fall-to-the-floor wail). Here is September’s roundup:

From me to my sister:

Nothing says September like a cart full of school supplies.

POTD: May Highlights

We are well into June but here they are.  The best May had to offer…

May brought the transition from warm to hot and then warm again, green to blazingly colorful, and more baseball, baseball, baseball. (Although I’ve spared you from any more baseball pictures.)

From me to my sister:
