Where Did June Go?

June was a busy but delightful month. I started off the month in Madison, Wisconsin at Midwest Institute. Then I celebrated my birthday, and the day after my birthday, I headed off to Athens, Georgia for Southeast Institute.

Birthday

I had a great birthday this year. John was out of town so we celebrated the weekend before. On the actual day, I spent time with my mom and sister looking at venues for an upcoming event I have yet to write about on the blog (but will soon!). In the evening, I went to dinner with friends and then headed over to my parents for cake and ice cream.
