Friday was my birthday and I actually did something to celebrate this year. My family and I got back yesterday from a fabulous mini vacation to some local attractions (including a bookstore ;) and I'm settling into my end of summer run around like a crazy person season, known to others as 'August'.
This lovely blurry pile pic (courtesy of my Tumblr) is a few weeks worth of book buying bountifulness :)
Hope you all are having a fabulous Monday!
