It is a little bit cooler in TN today, note I am saying a LITTLE bit cooler!  It is August so it is never really cool but I have been thoroughly enjoying the occasional breeze we have had lately.  Bill and I are heading to Indiana this weekend for Pulse Festival.  We are looking forward to seeing everyone.

I hope you had the chance to check out the books yesterday!  I am truly looking for some more good reading for this fall so I will be sharing more as I find them.
