The PR Report: June + July 2015

June and July were pretty quiet months for me, which isn't a bad thing at all. Things are going really well at work, and I got to travel to Florida and North Carolina in July, which are always quintessential trips for me in the summer. When I think about how I spent my free time, it was mostly to celebrate--birthdays, promotions, friends with babies on the way--you name it. There is so much to be thankful for right now, and I'm loving this summer so far!

3 Things I'm Looking Forward To In August

1. Fenton family vacation: We're heading back up to the NC mountains to go camping with my husband's family later this month--there's rarely a dull moment with the Fentons, so I have a feeling it will be an interesting trip!   
2. Book club: We took a short break from book club over the summer, so I'm excited to get back in the swing of things and catch up with everyone (and read what should be an AMAZING book).  
3. Soaking up the last few days of summer: I can already feel the busyness of fall starting to creep in, but for now I'm going to enjoy our more open schedule in August and soak up these last few lazy days of summer (preferably poolside!).
