This post is sponsored by Gululu. All opinions are 100% my own. I’m not sure what the weather is like in your area, but it is downright swampy in Ohio right now. Not that I’ve ever been in a real swamp, but I imagine it to be hot, humid, damp and full of mosquitos – which is basically an accurate description of our backyard [...]

Get it?)   Specifying punctuation is always tricky: Although I suppose if Aunt flashed Mom that would liven up the party, and it’ [...]

Hellooooooo weekend! Whew is it good to be on the other side of this week; it has totally kicked my butt.
