Over the last few days, I have been on a mission to get my house back in order before September 1st. That is the day that my self-imposed lazy days of summer mode will be over and it will be back to business – back to my regular blogging schedule.
It has been nice being in the slow lane over the summer, the down time was just what I needed to get me excited for fall and going forward with new focus and energy.
It’s that time of the week where I share the random stuff that captured my attention or inspired me. I found a lot of interesting reads and ideas this week

Going to add a few of these to my fall reading list.
