A Few Notes

I hope you are all enjoying your long Memorial Day Weekend! I know most of us look forward to the three day weekend for an extra day off of work, sales at the mall, and picnics with loved ones. Please take a few moments this weekend to remember the REAL reason for Memorial Day.

(via)

Yesterday I had the privilege of meeting up with the lovely Auburn Kat. We made plans to meet at an outlet mall about halfway in between our small towns. Auburn Kat is one of those people who is charming, classy, and all around a great person. If you read her blog, you of course already know this. She is even more so in real life. We had a great time shopping, talking, and laughing. Despite the fact of having lunch in a restaurant that didn't believe in cranking up the air conditioning (seriously, it was warmer in the restaurant than it was outside!) I had a wonderful time and am looking forward to hanging out with her again, hopefully sooner rather than later. I really did feel like I spent the day with a friend I've known for a long time. Yay for blogging friends who become real life friends! Thanks Auburn Kat for a fun day!

Finally, if you are interested in the Book Swap please leave a comment or drop me an email. This is the last few days to sign up. I will email everyone who wants to be involved Wednesday and we will go from there.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
