This week

This week was recovery from A Midsummer Mingle, the garden party I threw with One More Mushroom, Sarah Jane, Mer Mag, Caravan Shoppe, Sycamore Street Press last Saturday. The party pretty much took my whole life, along with my interns', my house, and my husband's. And we're still not recovered. My house is a DISASTER and the amount of clean up seems never ending. BUT, the party was a success! Everyone came dressed in white and from what I can tell, had a good time.

Another fun piece of news, mostly just for me and Paul: I found my engagement ring after 3 weeks of searching. Hooray! Where was it? As we were cleaning our storage room I found it nustled in our grocery bag pile. How did it get there? I.have.no.idea. But I'm glad we were led to it. Hallelujah!
