June was a great month for reading for some reason. I didn’t have that much time but I still managed to squeeze in a lot of books. I’m pretty proud of myself actually.
It finally got sunny here! The last couple of days have been gorgeous and I’ve gotten the chance to enjoy it a little bit. How nice is it where you guys live? Any exciting summer events happening? Yesterday was Canada Day so we had a beach day and went to see the fireworks.
