1. The blackberries are finally ripening.
2. My sister-in-law and precious nephew are visiting for the weekend.
3. Salvador is seven weeks of smiliness...
4. ...and recovering well from a minor surgery that threw us all in a controlled tizzy this week.
5. I have made it thus far in the summer without thrifting once! (Amazing what you can save when you don't spend on bargains.)
6. My garden is alive and thriving, though the tomatoes are still green.
7. McMansions are no longer the gold standard. I didn't make this up. My little house is now average-sized. Whodathunk?
