A Summer Night Picnic and Movie

The summer months in SoCal can be pretty rough because I don’t live with air conditioning and I hate the sun. I even missed posting on my blog two weeks ago because I could barely stay cool enough to sit down and write down anything. I don’t usually get out much during the summer because…

A New Orleans Girls’ Trip
