Welcome to a California Summer | June Wrap-Up & TBR Update

You guys. Where we’re at in California is SO HOT. We’ve been told that if you can survive July and August then you’ll make it, but I’m all like JUNE HAS BEEN UPPER 90s/LOW 100s EVERY DAY SO HOW COULD JULY AND AUGUST BE WORSE. Guess we’ll see.

This is the month of the big move! We’ll be moving within the next few days and after that we’ll be settling into our new place, our new lives. I’m so hoping to have time to read. If I do, here’s what I’m planning to get to this month.

I’m trying to keep it pretty simple this month and we’ll see how that goes.
