First, apologies for my absense. We spent the 4th with my sister and cousin and their kids at my parents house at the coast which was really fun, but one of the smaller kids shared a stomach flu which was not. Both Hubby and I as well as one of my three kids came down with it so last week was a blur but we are all back to normal now. What would summer be without great summer beach reads. I wanted to share some of the things I'm reading now.
