Our summer's big trip was seeing the Big Apple for the first time, and this month I've really enjoyed getting to share our impressions of New York with you. You could also find out what three sailors thought of New York, New York with this month's film flick review. Or with this stationery wishlist. But even if you weren't able to get away this month, there were still many things to try in July, right from the Why Don't You... list! For example, you could buy the book from this month's Dogeared Page. Fellow blogger Marlen of Message on a Napkin wrote the poetry book, Ugly People, Beautiful Hearts.
Truthfully, after our exciting travels, things have been pretty quiet at home, partly because we like it that way and partly because an accident meant The Boy's arm was in a splint much of the month (before you ask; he's fine). What has July been like for you?
