round tableWell, my wife and I just attended our 2nd wedding in the span of 3 weeks. We now have some wedding free weekends until October when we go back-to-back. Right now I am heading out to Pittsburgh to see my best friend for a weekend full of fun! (Yeah I know it’s Sunday….our weekend will be Sunday and Monday haha!!)

The weather here has been cool for August, makes me think that a hot spell is due either the last week of August or we are going to get an Indian Summer in September. In either case, I’m not complaining – except for the fact that summer is almost over already! Below are some get blog posts I found. Hope you enjoy!!
