What I’m Loving – June/July Edition

I cannot believe it’s already mid July. Where has time gone to?  Before we know it, Autumn will arrive and then Winter.  Our wedding is in 145 days!. OMG.   Ok, slow down. It’s still only July and as much as I wanted to do a favourites blog for June there was just too much going…
